* Both Cookie Monster and Grover were Muppets that existed before Sesame Street. The original Grover Muppet 1st existed as a green monster in an Ed Sullivan skit in 1967. The Muppet was used in the 1st season until being redesigned as a blue monster. [[https://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/muppet/images/9/91/Around-the-mall-muppets-7.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20130930183112 For example...]] Cookie Monster however originally existed by having [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily sharp teeth]] The Muppet was also 1st seen in an Ed Sullivan skit in 1967 but was never used after that. If he did, who knows what would of become of Cookie Monster. [[https://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/muppet/images/b/b6/CookieEarly.JPG/revision/latest?cb=20101221094326 Here's another image.]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrUQanhdVFA During the otherwise-tame "Elmo's Potty Time" skit]], Grover's stomach ''speaks'' at one point (says "Food" in a deep voice when he gets hungry, then says "Bye, Elmo"). It has ''never'' shown the ability to talk before or since, and you wonder how it could talk!

* The recent song "Belly Breathe" by Constance and Colbie Colett shows Elmo getting angry and becoming a Frazzle-looking monster. What the fuck?!

** Another Monsterpiece Theatre segment that is quite unsettling is “[[https://youtu.be/4AnHw-ebDdY The Sound of Music]]”. It seems innocent enough at first, but it really gets freaky at the end when Grover hears a woman singing “The Sound of Music”, and suddenly, the hill he is sitting on comes alive and starts moving around. This is supposed to be a joke referencing the lyric: “The hills are alive”, but still, it is unsettling to say the least!

* Even [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfGAnxRFvR0 the bumper for their website]] isn't immune from being scary. The crayon drawing's way too bright, Maria's voice is pretty loud and sudden, and it showed up at the end of every episode without warning until they stopped using it.

* The original Big Bird model has no head feathers, making it look like he'd suffered a traumatic head injury for people only familiar with his modern look.

* In the "Kids' Favorite Songs 2" video, Snuffy the Elephant [[PlotAllergy sneezes]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext on some spaghetti]] and a giant meatball off it, which he proceeds to chase all over Sesame Street. At first it's funny, but near the end, it gets creepy. Elmo, Rosita, Baby Bear, and a lamb Muppet see the meatball coming, and Rosita and Baby Bear warn Elmo to get out of the way. Elmo doesn't look at first, but when he does turn around he sees ''the meatball coming towards him, about to crush him''! He's too scared to move out of the way, and there's dramatic music and slow motion accompanying the scene. It's a good thing that Snuffy intervened just in time to save Elmo, if he hadn't, then the meatball would've ''[[FridgeHorror killed]]'' Elmo!

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-NUkHKmYvs Alphabet Jungle]] sketch from the mid 1990's. The animation (done by ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' creator Klasky-Csupo) is flat out uncanny, especially the way the girl walks and the appearance of her face. There are also scary appearances by a rhino that crushes one letter and a giant smiling spider crawling over another. At the end of the sketch the screen fades to black and the music fades out and all we see are the eyes of every character with the sound of crickets.
