    pretty much all your suggestions I remember, especially courage. that show was like an animated version of That's So Weird (the weird stuff at least). Anyway, for rugrats, I remember the episode when angelica heard that her parents wanted another baby, and she got all anxious and worried over what the baby will be like. basically her vision of her new brother was very scary, not only in its voice (which sounded like an adult), but in the way it acted. it was a jerk and iirc tried to lock up angelica indefinitely in a closet. and it also ate her. there's some more unsettling stuff about that baby brother but i can't remember. tough it looked like a baby, it certainly wasn't.

    another rugrats moment was at the end of an episode where chaz, i think, came down to Stu's kitchen to see what he was doing, then Stu had this high clown voice and he turned around to reveal a clownish face (w/o makeup of course) and the episode ended with Chaz screaming, I think the episode was about chucky overcoming his fear of clowns.

    The Elephant Parade from Dumbo was another one, though my brother was the one who was afraid of it many years ago.

    another nightmarish thing was not from a cartoon, but i think is worth mentioning. It was the short purple monster in Ghostwriter. I'm too afraid to even look for a picture of it online to post so my words will have to do. In fact, I'm so terrified of it I probably won't read what anyone else has to say because they might post a picture of it. There'll probably be people who think it looks funny, rather than scary, but at the time i first saw and heard this monster i was around 6-8 years old, it's been well over a decade since i've seen it and the image is still haunting. from what i can remember, this thing was basically slimy, melting, dripping. It wore a black jacket with pants and shoes. It was perhaps 2 feet tall and had a hideous grin and i think crooked eyes.I believe it was a doll similar to Chucky, but how it came to life (if it wasn't alive already) i don't know. (Or even if it was a doll at all) I can't remember if the monster wanted to kill the main characters, but i wouldn't be surprised if it did. I don't know what it was trying to accomplish in the first place. Nevertheless, it is a creepy, evil thing.

    Personally, I found the Stu clown to be funny.

    I found the Powerpuff Girls episode "Speed Demon" to be pretty scary. The worst was the giant, more powerful HIM.

    Who can forget about those urban legends from Hey Arnold!?

    While I wasn't really scared by any of them (Haunted Train is one of my favorite episodes of the series despite the fact that it was extremely rushed and had crappy background music), but were you guys?

    @Robo-Floatzel; I'm glad I didn't see that episode, because I really loved The Powerpuff Girls but was a very sensitive kid.

    In particular, the Him episodes always really freaked me out. The writers had a way of giving the Him the sort of plotlines that would target a kid's most sensitive fears, like the people/things you love turning against you (as in "Tough Love" or "Octy-Evil").

    Another thing that creeped me out as a kid was in Hercules (which I assume counts here since it was a cartoon film), where Hercules dove into the river Styx to save Meg while sacrificing himself. The way he rapidly aged until he was basically a skeleton really creeped me out then. I rewatched it recently and I was like, "Really? It was that?" Especially with the ridiculous plothole in terms of how he dove into it. (Right before he goes in, he's close enough to touch the river, but then they show him jumping in from like an Olympic-diving height. Really, Disney? You didn't think anyone would notice that?)

    Pretty much anything from Courage. "You're not perfect...", King Ramses, Katz, The Mask, the witch from the black puddle, etc. Let's not forget the episode about prostitution and domestic abuse.

    A Tom and Jerry cartoon I saw when I was 4. Tom got squashed by a boulder. It made me so angry, I switched the TV on and off at top speed and blew the fuse xD

    The episode of Dr Snuggles where Nobby (the mouse) falls into the diamond machine. That scarred me for life xD

    Watership down, especially when the Black Rabbit comes for Hazel.

    Animal Farm, where Boxer is taken to the knacker's (sp) yard to be killed. I cried buckets at that :(

    The pink elephant dance from Dumbo. What were they smoking when they made that xD

    Ah yes, "return the slab" was really scary back when I saw it for the first time (it was dark and I was home alone). Awesome episode, though.

    But I think the Moomin episode where Moomin goes under the magic hat and turns into a troll takes the trophy for me. I don't even know what made it so horrifying, but I know I did run out of the tv room whenever that episode aired. And I know I'm not the only kid who was traumatized by that scene, or the series overall. I remember being horrified by many other episodes too.

    Oh, and the second episode of Alfred J Kwak where

    But I loved it :)

    Of course, being the sick, twisted little child I was, I loved Courage the Cowardly Dog.
    I remember when the show first came out the weremole scared me the most. eventhough the show scared the crap out of me i still enjoyed watching it. Freaky fred is probily the number one villian in the nighmare fuel in Courage i can think of

    That episode used to scare me too. That baby looked liked the stuff nightmares are made of. It really was big and scary. Plus it had a really scary voice. That nightmare was one of the few times I could actually understand why Angelica was thinking that: sometimes little kids are afraid of being ignored when their mom is having another baby.

    Ironically, the nightmare was followed by one of the most heartwarming moments on the show: when Drew rescues Angelica from her nightmare, after she tells him about it, Drew tells Angelica how he and Charlotte will always love her no matter what happens.

    I always thought that at the end Charlotte had miscarried the baby...which worked to Angelica's advantage...

    Do I really scare you that much?

    I never really watched Courage the Cowardly Dog too much because it scared the crap out of me. There's one episode of Teen Titans I remember that was really creepy. The one where Robin is looking at Slade's mask in the basement, and the dust makes him see, hear, and feel Slade even though he's dead.

    This video. It was well before I was born, but now that I know it exists I will never get it out of my mind. Not so much nightmarish as it is extremely depressing, but whatever. You all deserve to share this burden.
