16 Cartoon Characters That Are Low-Key Creepy

What am I watching?!

Posted on

1. Handsome Squidward (SpongeBob Squarepants)


No. You never thought you'd miss Squidward's face until you've seen him look so weirdly smooth and shiny in a really terrible leotard. Bring back Normal Squidward! Besides, since when is that up there more handsome than THIS?

2. Backpack (Dora the Explorer)

Nickelodeon / Univision

Backpack, whose parents were obviously a bit uncreative, is a talking, singing backpack. A backpack with feelings, with dreams. So how does this sentient, singing entity feel when it is worn on someone's back and constantly STUFFED FULL OF OBJECTS?

3. Goofy & Pluto (Various)


This image brings up so many disturbing questions. If Pluto and Goofy are both dogs, then is Goofy a sort of Dr. Moreau experiment keeping a fellow canine as a slave? How come Goofy can talk and Pluto is left to groan and whimper senselessly into the void?


11. Nanny (Muppet Babies)

The Jim Henson Company

We never get to see Nanny's face. While this might be because we, the viewer, are exploring the Muppets' lives and adventures through a "baby's eye" point of view, another possible reason is that Nanny is a faceless demon-woman holding various animal/human hybrids captive in her nursery of horrors. WHERE ARE THEIR PARENTS?

12. Brett (Turbo Teen)

ABC / USA Cartoon Express

Brett is a teen with the ability to turn into a sports car. Which prompts the question: What happens to his bones and internal organs when he transforms? IS HE A CAR FULL OF BLOOD?
