What sketches scared you as a kid?

    The animated "crack in the wall". Hands down. Creepy.

    The original Sclrap a Flyapp (which is essentially an earlier version of Hugga Wugga) probably woulda killed you. It's much scarierer and one of the character's eye LIGHT UP! Creeps me out a little now.

    Ah yes. Pearl White Teeth sung by Brain Meehl. Yeah, I'm probably the only one who saw it when I was a youngster and laughed like an idiot. Seemed to scare everyone else.

    While searching YouTube for classic Sesame Street clips (particularly those from the '70s), I recently came across one that I had completely forgotten about that scared me: The Ten Commandments of Health. I could listen to the song on my Sesame Street cassette tape, but to watch the Muppets actually performing it creeped me out.

    I have these tapes of Sesame Street Songs and sketches. There was this one where Cookie Monster goes on a journey to find everlasting joy and happiness. Along the way he runs into a fire breathing dragon, comes across the house of an evil wizard, a castle owned by an ogre and a cave where a witch lives with her army of gnomes goblins and six-footed bumble thunderbeasts. The witch and her army then proceed to chase cookie all over the place. It was quite a frightening experience, especcially since I would listen to it while falling asleep.

    The letter sketches set in the jungle where the physical letter was supposed to be, like, Tarzan or something. I don't know what, but it creeped me out when I was little, and so did those other letter sketches with the Jaws-esque music, where the kids are in the pool. :o

    ALSO... not from SSt, but the "Hugga Wugga" song from TMS scared me. I didn't see the actual sketch on the show until season one was released on DVD a few years back, but when I was younger I had TMS record with the songs from the first season, and "Hugga Wugga" was on it. It was just such a bizzarre song...

    I have to ask, but why would it scare you to see Muppets performing a song you've heard on a cassette first? Because I was always used to seeing Muppets sing stuff. Just wondering. :)

    I remember as a little kid, one bit that used to kind of scare me a little bit...

    It was an animated segment, but it was animated in a strange way... it was like colored sand or powder or something against a black background - it started out as a red and yellow letter B, then scattered into another frame, where the sand/powder formed itself into a buffalo, before returning to the letter B... all the while, this really ominous, creepy music played in the background.

    The only other segment like that I remember featured pink and blue colored sand/powder that went from the letter B, to a large B, back to the letter B... that one was a lot more pleasant, mainly because unlike the buffalo one, it had cheerful, sea music playing in the background. So yeah, I liked the boat one, but the buffalo one did creep me out a little.

    The "Monster in the Mirror" sketch where Grover is shown outside looking at his cartoonish reflection from the window kinda freaked me out only a little. Especially when the reflection grew large. As well as some other bits with Grover and his reflection in the sketch.

    Ironically, a lot of sketches I remember seeing as a kid actually made me laugh rather than scared.

    I was always scared of the larger Muppets. Not so much of Sweetums and the hairy ones, but the Mutations and such. When I was a kid, the Muppets' eyes always freaked me out too. :o

    Along those same lines (larger Muppets) Giant Animal in the Muppet Movie always freaked me out as a kid
  11. GarlicGuy New Member

    My mom would always play me the Frog Prince and I would scream and cry when I saw Sweetums :o

    I remember being a tad bit scared of Frazzle when I was little. He wasn't absolutely horrifying or anything, but he was a little freaky-looking.
  13. DreeRAWRScooter New Member

    And Beaker. I don't know why but Beaker always used to scare me. Maybe because of the way his mouth opened. :eek:
  14. Miss Anonymous New Member

    Have any of those Muppet characters appeared in any Classic Sesame Street sketches, or have ever appeared on Sesame Street period? If so, then perhaps this isn't getting tat bit off the topic then.

    I know that Kermit's been in a few Sesame Street sketches.
  16. DreeRAWRScooter New Member

    And inner space....

    That's so scary when you're little. And when you look up the lyrics, somehow that's scary too.
  17. HeyButtahfly Well-Known Member

    But again, that one wasn't on Sesame Street....
  18. DreeRAWRScooter New Member

    Sorry I guess. XD The sketch from Sesame Street that I remember as creepy was Grover and the Monster in the Mirror. But I just had to post The Windmills in My Mind because it, IMO, is the scariest sketch that I saw and it disturbed me when I was a kid.
  19. When i was little the Monsterpiece Theatre sketches absolutely freaked me out! i had so many nightmares.... heh heh, but i love cookie monster now. his wit in the prarie dawn & cookie sketches these days really makes me giggle :insatiable:

    How about when a man makes a loaf of bread from scratch, he does it in fast motion and you see the bread dough rise. I remember the music heard in the background was kind of creepy.
