    18 Fictional Characters That You Saw As Kids Which Are Straight-Up Terrifying As Heck

    The witch from Snow White is predominantly the reason why I can't trust sweet old ladies.

    1. The Horned King - The Black Cauldron

    Disney / Via gph.is

    Red eyes, sharp teeth, claw like hands and a dangerously scary voice? Imagine watching this as a kid?!

    2. Ursula - The Little Mermaid

    Disney / Via giphy.com

    Her cackle was what children's tears and nightmares were made out of.

    3. Tweety Bird (as Mr. Hyde) - Looney Tunes

    Warner Bros. Pictures / Via youtube.com

    The voice actor did an amazing job... at scaring the shit out of you. It was enough to make Sylvester fall apart.

    4. Cruella De Vil - 101 Dalmatians

    Disney / Via gph.is

    Apparently her scheming ways weren't scary enough so they added this terrifying car scene.

    5. The Bear with Brown Fuzzy Hair - Teletubbies

    BBC

    This was in Teletubbies. A show for toddlers. Just why?!

    6. The Witch - Snow White

    Disney / Via giphy.com

    This is predominantly the reason why I can't trust sweet old ladies.

    7. Chernabog - Fantasia

    Disney

    Chernabog's appearance is basically the epitomé of a Disney villain, and it'll go on to mess you up for days.

    8. Freaky Fred - Courage the Cowardly Dog

    Cartoon Network / Via giphy.com

    The way he says "naughty" is creepy as heck. This character is just wrong in many ways, his hair cutting obsession is particularly creepy.

    9. Jafar - Aladdin

    Disney

    He was especially scary during his transformation from the serpent to the powerful, evil genie - where he booms on about how the Universe is now his to control.

    10. The Wiggles Puppets - The Wiggles (TV Series 2)

    Seven Network

    Their high pitched voices weren't cute at all. Also, look at their expressionless faces. Just look at them.

    11. Mr Peeler - Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids

    ITV

    He took children's eyelids if they didn't go to sleep on time. Enough said.

    12. Mr Burns - The Simpsons

    FOX

    Everything about him is just creepy as heck. From his voice to his mean attitude, he was one of those characters that's comically scary.

    13. Giant Walrus - Pingu

    Hot Animation

    There are no words to describe how horrifying this episode was.

    14. King Ramses - Courage the Cowardly Dog

    Cartoon Network

    If Hell exists, this is the creature that'll meet you at the gates.

    15. The Scary Lion - Teletubbies

    BBC

    Look at the eyes and teeth! All my nopes.

    16. Mr Blobby - Noel's House Party

    BBC / Via giphy.com

    I don't even know where to begin with this one.

    17. HIM - The Powerpuff Girls

    Cartoon Network

    The way he goes from a pleasant tones to demonic tones in a heartbeat makes kids' heart beats in fear.

    18. The Blue Creature - Courage the Cowardly Dog

    Cartoon Network / Via youtube.com

    The way this chanted "you're not perfect" gave us the heebie-jeebies. Who knew CGI like this could scare the crap out you.
