Any Muppet Moments that scared you when you were little? For me, it was basically just all of Fraggle Rock, and the Flying Monkeys in Muppets Wizard of Oz.

However, I happened to see one Muppet Show sketch as a kid. This was Marisa Berenson singing "Our House". For whatever reason, I loved it.

-The whole Alice Cooper episode.
-The Yip-Yips on Sesame Street.
-Uncle Deadly (Even though I think he's funny now).
-All of Elmo Says Boo.

The orange creature with green hair at 0:41 used to scared me:

Here are some of mine:

-Sesame Street's Guy Smiley (you try explaining his enthusiastic tone of voice to a 1-to-2-year-old)
-Any time any Muppet production (or cartoon, for that matter) uses a camera move TVTropes defines as "Eating the Camera"--but only when a character's uvula (the teardrop-shaped piece seen hanging from the roof of a character's mouth) is shown, which made me very scared when characters burst into song since it's one of the most common instances where this trope has been used.
-When Gonzo accidentally set Rizzo on fire in The MCC (you're speaking to a pyrophobe here because of it), and also the gunpowder chase in MTI

Sweetums. :grr:
Strange because I didn't find him scary back when I watched him on the shows or movies. Just ended up having frequent nightmares about him when I was a kid.

the scene in the Muppets take Manhattan, when Kermit gets hit by a car, that scared me as a kid.

For some reason, the scene in Cinderelmo where he falls out of the armor suit made me cry as a kid.
