* From "Aye Aye Eyes", there's the Creepy Eyed Girl's ThousandYardStare.

* From "Aye Aye Eyes", there's the Creepy Eyed Girl's ThousandYardStare.ThousandYardStare.
* The ending of "Paper Route Bout", which involved Dee Dee competing in a newspaper-delivering contest with a group of delinquent ninja kids. At the end of the contest, both her and the competing ninja are tied at 0, with only one house left. Dee Dee lands her paper and wins the contest, while the ninja gets [[ThrowingTheDistraction distracted by a traveling salesmen selling Chinese food and small animals.]]
** The creepiness comes in ''after'' Dee Dee's victory. The ninja's dishonored teammates punish him by forcing him to whack himself with a newspaper. He gets on his knees and holds his paper in a way that's eerily similar to the act of {{Seppuku}}. He then hits himself in the head and fall on his face, ending the episode.
*** In other words, they just depicted a villain committing suicide. On screen. In a ''kid's show.''
*** The [[SilentAntagonist complete lack of dialogue]] and the nervous sweating on the ninja's face as he prepares to hit himself only add to the horror.

*** There's also the fact that it was [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Dee Dee's fault that Dexter was there in the first place,]] because Dee Dee tampered with a teleporter that sent him to the alien prison. And, in an act of sheer stupidity, [[spoiler: ''[[OhNoNotAgain she sends him back there again.]]'']]

** Anytime Dexter's mom gets angry, she's pretty terrifying, especially in the episode "Dee Dee Locks And The Ness". It's no wonder why Dexter, Dee Dee, and even their dad never say no to her favors.

** Anytime Dexter's mom gets angry, she's pretty terrifying, especially in the episode "Dee Dee Locks And The Ness". It's no wonder why Dexter, Dee Dee, and even their dad never say no to her favors. Here's an example from one episode:
--> '''Mom:''' Dex! It's time for your bath!
--> '''Dexter:''' But I'll miss my show...
--> '''Mom:''' [[SuddenlyShouting DON'T ARGUE WITH ME, YOUNG MAN!]] ''[[VoiceOfTheLegion JUST DO IT!]]'' (proceeds to walk off as if nothing had happened)

* The episode about Dad's obsession with Mom's muffins. SanitySlippage PlayedForComedy in a kid's cartoon, folks.

* A mix of Nightmare Fuel and Tear Jerker is when Dexter, Mee Mee and Lee Lee find Dee Dee on a clearing of the forest in "Dee Dee's Tail" after she has convinced Dexter to turn her into a horse. What makes it creepy is the way they quickly decide to mere use her and in the end, how Dexter says they are there to *tame her once and for all* while she begs them to leave her be. It's nerve wrecking to see how they are treating a sister and best friend and how it didn't take long for the change in treatment to happen (they no longer even see her as Dee Dee, but as a wild horse that they want as theirs) and how their attitudes show that they believe that in order to tame her, they have to break her spirit. Considering the implications and how free spirited Dee Dee is, this makes this troper shiver every time.

* Most of the episode "The Bus Boy", revolving around kids stories about what lurks in the dark back of the schoolbus. Pleasant stories such as a giant monster that eats little children and appears as a giant fanged mouth in the darkness, a giant spider with a human head, and a tear in reality that drags in any child that strays too close. Worse, its apparently TRUE to some extent, as a boy named Billy had apparently disappeared back there decades earlier, and when Dexter drops his pencil near the dark area, ''something grabs it and drags it into the darkness''. [[spoiler: Thankfully, it turns out the "monster" is Billy himself, now a grown man calling himself Bill who got trapped in a wad of bubble gum and has been living back there ever since, but is quite a nice, well adjusted guy despite of this. ]]

* "Ewww, That's Growth" has Dexter trying to accelerate his body growth so he can be big enough to ride a rollercoaster. His experiment succeeds, but as soon as they arrive at the rollercoaster, they must go down an impossibly long queue, and by the end, Dexter's gotten much bigger than most of the other people waiting for the rollercoaster. Once an elongated Dexter finally gets on the rollercoaster and enjoys the ride, his head crashes into the upper part of a tunnel. [[GoryDiscretionShot The scene abruptly cuts to a THE END card]]. And an uncomfortable feeling will most likely come over you.

* There is an extremely disturbing episode, "Monstory", where Dee Dee won't stop telling Dexter knock-knock jokes, and in desperation, he reaches into his jacket to retrieve a vial that will leave her mute. Instead, he obtains a vial that has a warning on it that drinking it will turn you into a monster. He gives it to Dee Dee who turns into a horrific beast, and the episode essentially consists of the two of them going back and forth drinking the vial and increasing in size, but while Dee Dee gets more disturbing by the second, Dexter's mutations are weak to say the least, until he drinks the contents of a nuclear plant and grows into an enormous Godzilla like creature. The episode concludes with Dee-Dee becoming an ABSOLUTELY TERRIFYING spider creature that pins Dexter to the ground and speaks with a high pitched squealing, echoing voice: [[spoiler:"So the boy told the girl in the park on the pony... 'Knock knock!'"]]

* The episode "Jeepers Creepers, Where is Peepers?" featured Dexter and Dee Dee's magical friend Koosie working together to save Peepers (another magical being) from an [[EvilIsSexy anime villain]], in one scene we see a rather disturbing graphic look at Peepers as he is having his energy sucked off. [[spoiler: HE'S INSIDE OUT]]. Also, [[spoiler: he then ([[BigLippedAligatorMoment somehow]]) goes from a BlobMonster to a flesh-colored dragon and fortunately stomps on the villain, [[FridgeHorror but how do we know that's not an effect from the machine he was trapped in?]]]]
