Why do babies cry so often? Mostly because they can't talk just yet. But with so much beyond their comprehension, some things we might take for granted (or would just mildly disturb us) make perfect NightmareFuel for infants.

* The original pilot. The [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness animation is much more detailed]] [[UncannyValley and makes the characters look ugly or downright monstrous]], especially their bizarre, undulating necks, and the whole episode has a cold, alien, feel compared to later episodes. The girlish voice of Tommy and the fact it is mostly at night do not help. The worst part are ''the two characters who don't appear in the series proper'', possibly being early versions of Betty and Howard, but [[YouDontLookLikeYou much different-looking]].

Chuckie and Angelica don't appear either.



** Chuckie and Angelica don't appear either.



** The monster was voiced by the same guy who voiced Krumm on ''WesternAnimation/AaaahhRealMonsters'', by the way. There's a dose of NightmareRetardant.

* The episode where they camp out in the backyard with Grandpa and he tells them about the Satchmo[[note]] Sasquatch, ''not'' the trumpet player[[/note]] is damn terrifying. The atmosphere of that episode was just so ominous.

* A good example of how scary Angelica can be? The episode "Tooth or Dare". Specifically when she gets the idea to pull out Chuckie's teeth when she learns about the Tooth Fairy from Susie.
** "I'M GONNA GET THOSE TEETH IF IT'S THE LAST THING I EVER DO!!!!!"

Susie. "I'M GONNA GET THOSE TEETH IF IT'S THE LAST THING I EVER DO!!!!!"



* The "big, big slide" that Chuckie described in "The Slide."
* The arts and crafts counselor in "Cool Hand Angelica." After taking Cynthia away from Angelica, she tricks her with ''a hand made out of Popsicle sticks!'' Naturally, Angelica screams and gets the hell away but the baffled counselor claims the kids at camp love the joke. I guess the campers have a sick sense of humor.
* Something is very unsettling about it whenever Stu or another adult screamed, for some reason, like in the episode "Angelica Breaks A Leg".
** Some of those chocolate pudding Stu videos while hilarious are also quite scary. Like the one where Stu [[DrivenToSuicide contemplates suicide.]]
** And then there's when Stu finds out what Didi is really like.
** Stu's [[SanitySlippage descent into madness]] after Angelica pretends to break her leg.

* In "Spike's Babies, Stu decides to board up the crawlspace entrance, unaware that there are kittens hiding inside. If Tommy hadn't freed Spike, the kittens would have been sealed up and left to starve to death.

* Gracko in "Diapies and Dragons" was kinda creepy, wasn't he? Especially to young kids who don't get the idea of LargeHam. Whatever.

* In the episode ''Reptar on Ice'' there was a creepy scene showing the lizard's point of view of how humans look, first Tommy's face up close, then Phil and Lil, it is really horrifying.

* ''Studio Tour'' has the Outside Space levels, one of which features [[SarcasmMode everyone's favorite toy clown]] Mr. Friend! The atmosphere of the levels don't help either. At least the director's voice was nice to listen to.



* Chuckie ''unzipping himself'' to reveal that he's an alien in "The Alien". Granted it was just a fake story Angelica made up, but STILL.

* The Klasky-Csupo "Splat" logo seen at the very end of most episodes.

*** The climax of that episode, where [[ItMakesSenseInContext Tommy is in the bathroom]] and he keeps ''almost'' falling... It isn't scary as a kid, but to an adult, that whole scene is terrifying; what with the AdultFear of walking into the bathroom to find your baby dead on the floor, with his skull cracked open. Oh- also, baby's skulls are very soft.

* The episode ''Special Delivery'' has Tommy exploring the post office, and goes through the chute to the dead letter office, on a conveyor belt leading to what is best described as the junk-mail pit of death, complete with the skeleton of a postal worker who had apparently fallen in years before.

* [[ItsAWonderfulPlot "Chuckie's Wonderful Life"]], where Chuckie wants to run away from home when he thinks the babies destroyed his dad's CD, where he sees what life would be like if he never existed. What was both terrifying and depressing was when his guardian angel showed him Tommy's dark, grey house, with a beaten, dirty and sad Tommy playing in the trash cans. The dialogue is as follows:
