    He's not technically a muppet, but I didn't like Hoggle from "The Labyrinth" He just creeps me out.

    I used to go out of the room when statler and waldorf said their final thought of every Muppet Show. It's probably cos they looked scary and use to either hit each other or chuck each other out of the balcony. I remember on the Marisa Berenson episode when they chuck Kermit out of the box at the end of the episode and I cried and ran out of the room. I dont anymore though.:)

    I was kind scared of Cookie Monster and the Count at first, but then I liked them. Hmm...oh and Crazy Harry, I still don't like him. Also, a lot of the pirates from MTI, I was still kind of young when it came out.

    Hugga Wugga, Sweetums on occasion, lots of acts in Muppet Weird Stuff ("All Of Me", "Hugga Wugga", "You Do Something To Me", "I've Got You Under My Skin"), I think possibly Gorgon Heap too.

    Worst one has got to be the Letter E from Sesame Street's Letter of the Day. I always changed the channel or turned off the TV when that came on. Something about the blond hair, the tiny eyes and lips, and the squeaky little voice by Richard Hunt. That letter E gave me one nightmare that I remember to this day (because I thought it was real and ran into my parents' bedroom). I turned over in bed, and there was that E (though I think it had buttons on it like a calculator) and it said, in a low, male voice, "Good night pal. Poison dreams." And I ran out screaming!

    Just thought I'd share that with you. I'm going to go hang my head in shame now.

    I was never scared by the Muppets but I have a fried who gets freaked out by the Thunderbirds. I think it's their mouths that are scary.

    Also I love Sesamie Streets letter puppets. I will always remember Z best.

    I'm still afraid Thog, but i wasn't afraid of him as a kid. i was DEFINITLEY afraid of Spaceship Surprise, Vincent Twice, and Placido Flamingo on ss! also this one muppet named Mary Louise is freaky looking. she has weird black lips, i think. actually, there's too muppets named Mary Louise, the other looks like Prairie Dawn.

    Not understanding the syntax of this sentence. Do you mean you're afraid OF Thog? I didn't think (forum member) Thog had posted in this topic. If it is Thog you're afraid of, or were afraid of, I have a tough time seeing that. Care to explain?

    I did not notice this thread! Which is actually kinda funny, because I JUST said that when I was a kid I had this HUGE fear of the Trash Heap from Fraggle Rock. Sure, she was a nice trash heap, but dang! She was scary looking!

    The Fireys from Labyrinth. I love them and always have, but they sure are creepy creatures. The rest, well they are Muppets. What's to be scared of? Guess I never had that problem.

    Ditto! Scary, and gross.

    First post mentioned a fear of Junior Gorg. Actually I think I was scared of him occasionally.

    i mean, Thog is weird looking with his humungous butt and short little legs. i've never seen him (talking, performing, etc) so i can't say i like him, but i havent seen tms in a while. but actually, i probably wouldn't mind him.

    I used to be scared of the part in the dark crystal when Kira is strapped in to be drained of her essence.
    I used to think the skeksis were sucking out her brains.

    Everytime Kermit walked by the Rotating Rain Barrel in TMM, I jumped five feet in the air!
