    ::Shivers:: This is one clip I never wanted to see again! I dreaded seeing the alien come out of the ship, lol. Now he's pretty funny (but still unnerving! Hehe).

    And I understand Dr. Tooth, seeing that kids face disapear would be quite disturbing to a kid!

    Scariest SS Clip

    To this day I'm embarassed to say that I'm still freaked out by the "Mummy Ernie" skit. The one where Ernie and Bert go into the temple and there's a mummy resembling Ernie. They eventually sing and dance together singing "Rubber Duckie." :eek:
    The opening and closing music adds to the creepieness of the skit.

    One sketch that kinda still haunts me a little was the stop-motion sketch with the kerosene lamp. There was something about the music that made me feel uneasy. :eek:

    I TOTALLY remember that one! I can see why you'd be scared by it (though I absolutely loved it as a kid). The synthesizer is pretty eerie (plus the way the lamp appears to be assembling ITS OWN SELF!)

    Did anyone mention the kids running away from the giant green Dragon looking rabbit yet? That had to have caused some trauma... I didn't like it (nor did I get the point) when I was it on Old School 2.

    I felt your pain especially when the camera got closer and closer to his mouth. And what did he mean by "Couldn't you just eat me up"?

    Oh wow, my cousin has home movie footage of little baby me saying how much that shark on Sesame Street scared me, lol. This clip did nothing for the reputation of sharks!

    Doesn't bother me too much now. But that clown in the clip just before still kinda does, hehe.

    Oh man, that's another one I used to laugh like an idiot at. Maybe because of all the film cutting or something... or his weird voice.

    What's ironic is the sketch was supposed to show kids that clowns are really people to, and there's no need to be afraid. But for some kids it seemed to have the opposite effect, lol. Now, I was always relieved to see the guy's real face at the end, but that didn't stop me from being freaked out every other time the clip came on!

    I must ad one thing... am I the only one who isn't afraid of clowns? I just didn't care way too much for them, outside of Krusty and Binky, of course....

    But then again, weird things scare me, and weird things make me laugh.

    But I forget if I said This one Scared the heck out of me... that horrible organ music.... and it took forever to end. I remember one time I hid in the other room until it was over.

    Well I was only afraid of clowns for like 2 seconds as a kid, that quickly went away. And I progressed to stranger fears like Gumby (no I'm not kidding!) :eek:

    Yeah I can see that, and the way the bats sort of popped up from nowhere. Something about crude animation sometimes comes across a bit creepy, hehe. No offence to the animation, I do still think it's good. :)
