* Most of Creator/DorothyLSayers' short stories are rather harmlessly pedantic whodunnits. Then there's "The Incredible Elopement of Lord Peter Wimsey", in which an older, jealous husband cold-bloodedly [[spoiler: isolates himself and his beautiful, intelligent young wife in a remote foreign village, deprives her of the medication she relies on for her hypothyroidism, then sits back to gloat as she slowly disintegrates into a (minutely described) profoundly retarded and physically loathsome cretin. Not only does he enjoy her frantic appeals as she initially feels reason slipping away, but once she becomes unable to understand what's happening to her, he gives her treatment at intervals that clears her mind just enough to realise the extent of her degradation... As the story opens this has been going on for ''three years'', and had Wimsey not just found out about it by the merest chance, it presumably would've continued indefinitely.]]

* Relatively minor as the show is targeted at toddlers, but the AnimatedAdaptation of NightmareFuel/SpotTheDog has one episode where Spot encounters a cat named ''Cybil''. Cybil's response (a loud growl combined with Off-Model Animation) was potent enough ''Nightmare Fuel'' to the target audiences that parents complained.
