* In this video, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdeOqo0tVHs Big & Little]], Kermit has 2 monsters demonstrating the differences between [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin big and little]]. It ends with a big monster name Splurge scaring Kermit away. However, it does end as a CrowningMomentOfFunny when Splurge and the 2 monsters waving bye at Kermit.

* Due to the MoodWhiplash nature of the music and Cookie's already deep voice, the "Six Cookies" segment can be this.

* One vintage sketch, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sh8JEL8qwcM "10 Clowns"]], features an ''extremely'' misguided clown character. It's bad enough that a clown car tears around wildly in the parking lot while raucous circus music plays, and when the car screeches to a stop and the ten clowns pour out, each saying their number in progressively deeper voices. But the low point is the tenth and final clown: he is more ape than human, moving right at the camera on all fours and bellowing in a voice that reminds one of demonic possession. You don't have to be afraid of clowns to be terrified of ''this'' gorilla-like bozo.

* This [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HuZ9MbSGXZI seemingly-pointless cartoon from the 70s]] that features a woman in profile's features randomly morphing, accompanied by loud whizzing Moog synthesizer sound effects. Even worse is the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBqUIBCI4gQ male]] version with its deeper synth sounds and more horrific facial distortions.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cS5SWByK0Uk King Minus]] was a play on the story of King Midas, but instead of turning everything to gold, everything he touched disappeared. It ends with him accidentally making the princess he was trying to rescue vanish.

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkIXaMap9-A Bigger Than the World!]] animated sketch which involves a frog trying to prove to a giant ox that she can be much bigger than the ox. So, the frog starts to constantly puff herself up until she was as huge as a beach ball and when she finally states that she has become bigger than the world, [[spoiler:the frog suddenly explodes]].

It's directly inspired by one of Aesop's Fables, which were originally [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids never intended for children]].

** [[FridgeHorror It gets worse if you think about it.]] The king's obsession with everything numbering eight suggests that [[spoiler: he might have had the ninth daughter aborted if he'd known she was going to be a girl. Or that he wanted a boy, which in its own way is just as disturbing.]]

*** In the 90's, the sketch was trimmed a bit and music was added during the more frightening parts.
