How were we not scared shitless by this stuff as kids?

1. The shark scene in The Little Mermaid


That Ariel was exploring creepy abandoned ships was already super unsettling... like you knew there was evil in there. AND THEN THERE WAS. Go away, Scary Shark!

3. The climax of Sleeping Beauty


See what I'm saying about that woods stuff? The entire ending of Sleeping Beauty is terrifying. But there's something super nasty about those thorny woods. You know the prince will defeat the villain... but you could legit get stuck in those thorns and die.

7. The donkey scene in Pinocchio


Scary thing No. 1: Young boys turn into donkeys (must be painful).

Scary thing No. 2: That scary monster man.

Scary thing No. 3: Then the donkey-boys turn into slaves... they are sold off to work in salt mines. WTF.

11. When Cinderella gets locked in her room by her Evil Stepmother


The claustrophobic horror of being completely trapped?! Not knowing when you'll be able to eat, drink, or pee next? Good lord.
