How about this one? The lion's roar and the cat's noises scared me as a kid. Check it out!

What the ****? That's from Sesame Street? That one would be scary, although I don't recall ever seeing that before. Honestly, I wasn't all that easily scared as a child, but that one's pretty insane, if you ask me. How about this one?

I've always been interested in science, technology, and engineering, so I was quite fascinated with this film. However, some of the dolls look kind of creepy. I could DEFINITELY understand why someone would be afraid of it, as well as the Jungle Abstracts animation.

Just saw that King Minus sketch for the first time. And I agree, I found it rather upsetting when the King made the dragons (and then the fair maiden!) disapear! ::shivers:: lol

No particular sketches...

Anytime I saw him on TV, I'd have nightmares for a week.

But then again, Sweetums was on the Muppet show, as well as a couple other early projects, and thus was never on Sesame Street.

Oh boy, someone posted the Triangle Home sketch! Don't ask me why but I used to be TERRIFIED of this one! I used to dread this coming on.

I guess the triangle house looked kinda creepy and the sky in the background was a bit dark. Plus the song itself is rather sad and melancholy, so I guess I connected the house with negative feelings.

Plus those triangle cows ::shivers:: they STILL bother me, lol! I guess I was expecting cows but then seeing something that looked "just a might strange."

It doesn't bother me so much now though and I'm glad I got the chance for closure, hehe.

That cartoon still inspires mixed emotions in me: On one hand, seeing the king beat those dragons so easily is cool--especially when the last one tries to run for his life. *LOL* On the other, I can't blame King Minus for "subtracting" himself after he accidentally makes the princess disappear; if only he'd remembered to put his other glove on first! :cry:

NARF! Triangle cows? Do you suppose they have a square cow ranch, where they make Wendy's burger patties, Brain?

::shivers:: Come, Pinky, we must prepare for tomorrow night...

And great comment, ISNORDEN!

Wow, another flashback. I remember there used to be a building near my house that looked very similar to the Triangle house. I dreaded going by it every time! Lol
