What sketches scared you as a kid?

    I have it worse... I had This with a broken voice box. It not only terrified me as a kid, but I was afraid of talking toys for the LONGEST time since. And I used to love them.

    Ironically, considering Herald's example, Teddy Ruxpin was quite the opposite for me. I LOVED that thing. I guess I knew because it was just a tape player or something... but I just absolutely adored that little guy.

    Yeah I feel really bad about it now because I think if I could have gotten over my initial reaction Snoopy and I could have had a lot of fun, lol. Though in any case it would have been short lived; shortly after getting the toy my friend pushed it down the slide, it never played again. :cry:

    I did have a Big Bird talking toy with the wind up cord. But for some reason I can't remember what he said. In fact I remember owning it but I don't remember ever knowing what he said, lol.

    Can't really think of anything.

    I've been away from the forum for about two years and this thread has become too long for me to sit and read through (which in itself speaks to the long lasting impact of what we saw on SS in our formative years - that it's the "freaked me out" thread that's been so enduring), so I don't know if anyone has mentioned this one and if so I apologize:

    Trippy animation in which three kids run through a bunch of trees to some frenetic-sounding, heavily percussive music. They finally hide behind a tree, and the view pans over to show a GIANT *bleep*ING RABBIT apparently chasing them. It runs past their tree, and the kids all reappear and run back the other way.

    In fact, I don't remember this at all from my childhood; it was a sketch from the Old School volume one set (now rendered obsolete by the itune downloads :super:) and when I saw it as an adult I thought WHAT THE *BLEEP* and practically hid behind the couch again. Just like the old days.

    For real. What were they thinking? What on earth was the educational or entertainment value in that? "Learn how to run fast and hide quick, kids, or you might get eaten by a giant mutant rabbit."
  5. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Yeah... this thing...



    There was no call for that to be on the show ever, and I can't believe they hid an entire episode because The Wicked Witch of the West was considered too frightening, but this was deemed perfectly fine. There is nothing fun or educational about that sketch. It's just jarring, and disturbing, even as an adult.

    The scariest Sesame Street skit/sketch in the whole entire universe (for me) is when Oscar ate some rotten cookies and turned into a Handsome Prince. Oh, it was THAT scary! :concern::eek: When I heard and saw the skit starting up, I'd be like "Oh No!". And then I would run out of the room, with the channel changed to Channel 14 (the sports channel? For me, now, it is.) and hide in the family room (watching Channel 14, too. It was tuned to that by my brother and dad alot.). When it was done, my mom would call "Okay! It's all over now. The prince is over." OMG! IT WAS SCARY! WHOEVER CAME UP WITH THIS SHOULD BE KILLED! (not jim this was done in the '90s either early mid or late also it could be early 2000's).

    Update:
    I found out that this sketch was made in 2003. I remember seeing this alot from 2003-2007 (or 2008? oh yea it was 2008) I want to see this again to get over my fear. An image and a picture. Post now!

  12. crackmaster New Member

  13. crackmaster New Member

    I loved that one!
  14. crackmaster New Member

    I. LOVE. THAT. ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want the DVD to be made now!!!!!!!!

    Preety much any sketch with that old, ominous music. You know with some of the really early monster sketches that ominous music? Makes me shudder. The "world's greatest counter" Ernie and Bert also scared me. Bert running into the camera should make everyone scream with terror. I don't even wan't to think about it. :eek:
  16. D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Not really a sketch, but "Elmo and the Lavendar Moon" bothered me to a degree as a kid, I found the song to be rather creepy.
  17. Katzi428 Well-Known Member

    I think when they showed the sketch w/Ernie "the world's greatest counter of numbers" again , they cut out Bert running into the camera. (I'm pretty sure it unnerved a lot of kids.myself included!:eek:)
  18. galagr Well-Known Member

    Yeah, it was cut from the american version, but it stayed the same in the German version. The clip is even MORE terrifying in that version because Berts' voice and screaming is high pitched. :eek:
  19. D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Well there's another Ernie and Bert insert from the 80s I believe: yet another Ernie keeping Bert awake all night, involving the balloons they got at a party (Ernie wanted to set them free); the sketch ends with Bert running into the other room, where you can hear him screaming his lungs out, as well as the sounds of glass breaking and shattering.
  20. galagr Well-Known Member

    Hmm. I don't remember ever hearing of or seeing this sketch. Is it scarier or less scary than the "world's greatest counter skit"?
