19 Aussie Kids TV Characters That Were Actually Fucked Up As Hell

EC from Lift Off is personally responsible for my insomnia.

1. The Mulligrubs Face.

Network Ten

Hey you know what would make a great character for a kids show? A GIANT TERRIFYING FLOATING PURPLE FACE WITH BIG FUCK OFF NOSTRILS AND A VOICE THAT HAUNTS YOUR NIGHTMARES.

Yeah, great idea guys.

2. Virgil from Crash Zone.

Seven

Apparently one giant floating face wasn't enough. They had to attack us all again with this fucker.

3. EC from Lift Off

ABC

Oh what's better (worse) than a giant floating face? A DIRTY GARBAGE DOLL WITH NO FACE. THAT CAN MOVE. AND HAS SPECIAL POWERS.

Nope nope nope nope nope nope nope.

4. And Beverley the plant.

ABC

As if a faceless doll wasn't scary enough, Lift Off had to go and get a spiky living plant with a giant-arse all-seeing eyeball.

PS. That lizard guy was shady AF too.

5. Alfred on Johnson and Friends.

ABC

First up, how is a water bottle a toy? But more importantly, why did he make such horrifying splooshy noises?!

6. Plus McDuff.

Look at that crazy, unmoving face coming to FUCK UP YOUR DREAMS FOR LIFE.

8. Agro from Agro’s Cartoon Connection.

This guy was just plain mean. But also, look at those eyes. There's murder in those eyes.

9. Blackboard on Mr Squiggle.

ABC

He was grumpy AF. You got the feeling if you ever met him he would probably choke you with chalk dust.

10. And Mr Squiggle himself.

ABC

He was a MAN FROM THE MOON. With a PENCIL FOR A NOSE. No one else found that slightly concerning?!?!

11. Humphrey on Here's Humphrey.

You either loved Humphrey or you were batshit scared of him. There was no in between. Like, why was he so silent? What was he hiding?! Also... no pants?

12. Ol' Vagina Face on Plasmo.

ABC

His real name was Coredor but who remembers that when that FACE is seared into our brains forever.

13. And Plasmo and Parsty.

Their giant eyes and their sad, sad faces and their creepy movements. *shudder*

14. The book worm from The Book Place.

15. Lion on Magic Mountain.

ABC

The whole crew were a bit unsettling but there was something about the way Lion moved that made you particularly uncomfortable.

16. The Chief on Halfway Across The Galaxy And Turn Left.

Seven

Those eyesssssss. Terrifying.

17. The Ferals.

They were funny but if you looked at them too long they maybe stole a part of your soul.

18. Grob and Meeba on Pig's Breakfast.

Honestly it's like the creators of Aussie kids TV never wanted any of us to sleep again.

19. And basically every character to appear on Round the Twist.
