What sketches scared you as a kid?

Thought of another one, the Budgie #10 Song. The way the 10 spontaneously grew arms and started playing a guitar was really unsettling to watch as a kid. Like the Larry King sketch I previously talked about, this made me dread the number of the day being 10. Like most sketches I feared as a child, I am now no longer scared of it.

^ Was that segment also referred to on Muppet Wiki as "A Number Ten from Tennessee"?

Regarding "Scanimate H", I have no problem with just the audio, but I can't stand seeing the still image of Maria with special effects when illustrating "head" and "hair". i have no issues with seeing Maria in live action classic segments, though.

After listening to the segment's audio, I had originally thought that the segment had 1960s references, but apparently it was not the focus. In fact, it was just a Word Showcase segment, illustrating body parts, animals and activities beginning with H, but it was presented a lot differently than the traditional film counterparts like "D: a delightful letter". Plus, "Scanimate H" used a cast member (Luis) and a child, while the earlier Word Showcase segments used a non-cast member as a voiceover, naming words over mostly film footage.

I'd like to ask, who was the male voiceover ised in the word showcase segments for D, G and T?

I just discovered this one on YouTube and find the music alongside that weird "BING!" sound effect to be a bit unsettling:


It doesn't exactly scare me per say but I certainly felt a huge shiver down my spine the first time I heard that music. It fits perfectly with the alien theme of the sketch.
