YES! Even in those charming little seven minute cartoons Disney sometimes managed to scare the audience!

* ''Hell's Bells'': A 1929 cartoon about Hell. In the opening scenes a big fat spider with teeth swings back and forth and snaps at the viewer. Still pretty creepy...

Good thing she [[HoistByHisOwnPetard fell in it]], as well as the cat boy not only becoming a boy again, but not being stone anymore.



* ''WesternAnimation/TheMadDoctor'': Mickey and Pluto are StrappedToAnOperatingTable and tortured by an insane physician inside of the eerie basement of his castle. It's so scary it has [[NightmareFuel/TheMadDoctor its own Nightmare Fuel page!!]]

* ''"Donald’s Snow Fight"'': The ending where Donald is [[AndIMustScream frozen alive!]] What's worse is that [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic his nephews]] [[DesignatedHero are the apparent heroes here]] (despite ''causing this'') just because they were defeated fair and square in the snowball fight earlier!

* ''"Donald’s Snow Fight"'': The ending where Donald is [[AndIMustScream ''[[AndIMustScream frozen alive!]] What's worse alive]]''. Twice as much if you realize the audience is that [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic his nephews]] supposed to sympathize with [[DesignatedHero are the apparent heroes here]] (despite ''causing this'') his nephews]] - who ''put him in that state'' - just because they were defeated he beat them fair and square in the snowball fight earlier!earlier before they [[TookALevelInBadass got their act together]].



* ''Chicken Little'': The very disturbing ending where the fox devours every chicken. When the narrator asks him "Hey that's not the way the story is supposed to end!", the fox just tells him calmly not to believe everything he reads.
** Made more disturbing when you think about what it would be like to be in their ...shoes, panicking, crowded, trapped in a dark cave with a large(to them) carnivore that going to kill and eat them all... And they can't do a thing about it, and no help is coming... sweet dreams...

* ''Music/PeterAndTheWolf'': That wolf!
** The first appearance of it is especially scary! Especially with its theme playing in the background at the beginning as it snows and we see the wolf's footprints in the snow, the camera travels through the woods where we see a silhouette of something between the trees, then more trees group together, then the camera fades to the end of the trees and [[JumpScare THEN IT COMES OUT FROM BEHIND THE TREES AND ROARS AT THE AUDIENCE!]]

* The green and purple houses '''''[[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath BURNING TO THE GROUND]]''''' in ''The Little House''. In the same scene, somebody yells out a bloodcurdling "THE ALARM! FIRE THE ALARM!". Quite a few violent Disney moments are tame compared to this. [[ShmuckBait Go search the short at the risk of not sleeping tonight]].

* ''Disney/SteamboatWillie'': Mickey torturing animals, just so that their agonizing screams can be used as musical sounds!

to:

* ''Disney/SteamboatWillie'': While not as bad as other examples, Mickey torturing animals, just so that their agonizing screams can be used as musical sounds!
sounds is somewhat disturbing.



* ''Disney/ThreeLittlePigs'': The Big Bad Wolf. In his 1st movie, his single desire is to murder and eat the pigs, and he has an awesome EvilLaugh. In his 2nd movie, he tries to murder and eat Literature/LittleRedRidingHood. And in his 3rd movie, he's training his kids to murder and eat the pigs to [[VillainSong a song about]] [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome what you can cook pigs into.]] Too bad (or thank goodness, [[BrokenBase depending on who you ask) his kids were {{Retcon}}ned into Lil Wolf. In the 3rd movie the Wolf came ''[[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt this close]]'' to eating the pigs, [[LetsMeetTheMeat having them tied down with apples in their mouths and everything]].

enough. The worst part? The rest of the cartoon is a big CrowningMomentOfFunny, so [[MoodWhiplash it comes of as jarring]].
