Beautiful Day Monster?
That ghost frog scares me. Why, oh why do I find this stuff at night?
The correct answer to this question is Beautiful Day Monster (I remember when he had teeth!). He is now one of my most favorite characters and I hope and wish a figure or plush or something of him were made - far fetched eh?
The only Muppet I was afraid of as a little kid this embarrassing but, it was the honkers.
Sam the Robot
I used to think he was the Energizer Bunny.
Number one answer for me is Animal. I was terrified by him when I was a kid. I remember my friend even used to pull out his playing piece from his Muppet Show board game, and his photo alone would send me running. Of course back then Animal was a lot scarier then he is now. ( Modern Animal is almost more "cutesy" then he was back then, when he would literally attack others.) I even used to have nightmares of him when I was a kid, so it was pretty ironic that as a grown up when I got his Master Replicas puppet, I literally had him standing on my tall dresser in my room towering over me while I slept lol.
Other more minor runner ups: Yoda, Sammy the Snake, that witch on Sesame Street, the Egyptian Bert and Ernie (plus Ernie with the crazy eyes when the Count wouldn't let him sleep), and the ghost Kermit from Disco Frog. I think Frazzle also fell into this category. Even though I didn't see much of him when I was a kid, I remember he appeared on some Sesame Street bedding I had, where he creeped me out. My mom keeps telling that story though thinking that it was Cookie monster, but it really wasn't.
And finally: Oscar's feet! Seriously! I had no problems with Oscar, and even liked him, but whenever they would show him walking or running around in his trash can where just his feet stuck out, that creeped me out. Don't ask me why because I can not fathom for the life of me any reason for it. I guess that is just the way you perceive things when you are little, even when it makes no sense whatsoever.
I was only scared of the Tornado from the Elmo's World episode "Weather", and Bear from Bear in the Big Blue House. Other than those two, I wasn't scared of any other Muppets.
Also, I was never scared of Kermit, but his eyes kinda gave me the creeps.
Honestly, in terms of just Muppet characters, I can name a few:
Bushman Bill - just that voice Brian Muehl gave for him terrified me. "HEY!!!!!!!!!" And his appearance was also pretty intidimating.
Bip Bippadotta - only in Fat Cat specifically. When he'd run up to the camera and shout out his loud, fast-paced scats. The three blank Anything's were also pretty creepy, especially the blue one voiced by Frank Oz.
Vincent Twice, Vincent Twice - do I even need to explain?
Ernie with those "zombie" eyes when the Count comes to sleep over.
Kermit with teeth. Yikes....
The Guy Smiley captain in "Spaceship Surprise!" - his loud voice bothered me, and this was sometimes an issue I had with Guy Smiley in general as a kid.
Lefty the Salesman - his loud shushes bothered me.
Don Music - the loud "BANG!!!!!" Sound on his piano whenever he'd hit his head in frustration
Maurice Monster in "Frazzle" - just that low, bass voice Jerry gave for him kinda creeped me out. I was weird.
The broccoli in Healthy Food - self-explanatory
Animal - only when I first saw him in the Great Muppet Caper.
And I also remember being a little intimidated by Sinister Sam in the "I wanna know Y!" Old West skit.
That's all I can really recall at the moment.
I was scared of The Count but I also remember him being my favorite SS muppet.
Oh...my...goodness. I remember that sketch when I was little (the screen going white at the end and everything)!! That totally used to freak me out as a kid. The scary blue monster was Beautiful Day Monster. When he made a little cameo on The Muppets TV show a few years ago, I freaked out seeing him (and he didn't look any cuter with a hat on either). I think I've just programmed my nightmares for the next few years...yikes!
Frazzle. I have no idea why, but Frazzle used to scare the beejeebies out of me when I was a kid.
Separate names with a comma.
