* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheBuzzOnMaggie'', Maggie and Rayna sneak into a scary R-rated movie. Rayna ends up so traumatized she'd rather watch the baby movie that's playing on another screen.

They decide her trauma from watching the movie was punishment enough.

And it's his paranoia over being hearing noises after being creeped out by the movie that leads him to [[spoiler:leave the house with his flashlight, helmet, and BB gun, and discover the Giant for the first time]].
