* One story arc has Linus' blanket [[AnimateInanimateObject come to life]] and start stalking and attacking Lucy at every opportunity to the point where she stays outside all night hiding from it. At one point it lunges out of Linus' hands at her, and it has a ''mouth''.

* Though it's not official, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OTqvbh8Hko WITS did a sketch]] of an "unpublished lost strip", with Creator/PagetBrewster as Lucy, regarding the ol' classic football gag. Except that she insists that she never pulled the football away, and he's just imagining it. Like the kite-eating tree, or [[spoiler:Snoopy being alive.]] It's not clear which is worse; the idea that Charlie's been hallucinating ''everything'' we just chalked up to "comic strip weirdness", or that a little girl is ''that'' good at {{gaslighting}} someone.

* The way Lucy was originally depicted in the strip can have a potentially UncannyValley feel as well. Just [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/peanuts/images/7/77/19520330.gif/revision/latest?cb=20130329165655 look at her]].

* In one very old series of strips set in winter back in February of 1960, Snoopy wakes up to find an icicle the size of a sword dangling over his doghouse, and was too terrified to budge an inch, lest it crash down and kill him. Eventually, Charlie Brown convinced him to make a dash for it by placing a freshly-baked pizza several hundred yards away; when he caught a whiff of his favorite food, he charged for it and escaped, ''just in time'', as true to his fear, the icicle crashed down and destroyed the doghouse. What was terrifying was how much TruthInTelevision this is icicles ''can'' and ''have'' killed people.

--> '''Charlie Brown and Lucy''': Saved by a Pizza!
--> '''Snoopy''': Oh, Good Grief!

The strip from October 21, 1984 features Snoopy and the Beagle Scouts sitting around a campfire at night. Snoopy tells them that there's a full moon out, and that they had better be careful, because when the full moon is out, he turns into a "Werebeagle". Snoopy is briefly shown as a Werebeagle for a single panel, which scares the Beagle Scouts.

* In one strip, Charlie Brown, not having a kite to fly, attaches some string to Snoopy's collar and uses ''him'' as a kite, who uses his ears to create the lift needed to fly. But it doesn't work for long, and Snoopy plummets to the ground and ''SHATTERS into a hundred pieces!!'' Luckily it was just Snoopy having a nightmare from eating too much before sleeping, but still, that image of him shattering in front of his master must've upset a LOT of kids at the time!

* At the beginning of the "Suppertime" segment in "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown!", Snoopy imagines himself starving to death and we see his skeleton.
