* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doxtYR74G5g Telly on his debut.]] His eyes and voice are straight out of the UncannyValley and he is obsessed with TV, thinking it's all he needs. Particularly scary when he looks at the screen while introducing himself and he has Hypno-swirls in his eyes.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fC8tqdlXSb8 This]] episode. [[MsFixit Maria]], [[MrFixit Luis]], Gabi and [[NiceGuy Big Bird]] are happily playing charades and then ''suddenly'' [[MoodWhiplash Maria exclaims and grabs her side!]]. Then Luis is like "I don't think she's playing anymore" and walks up to Maria. She then talks in this way where she's talking normally and then ''suddenly makes pain noises again!''. She then has to go to ''hospital''!

* Several times in the show, AnthropomorphicFood comes and [[LetsMeetTheMeat encourages the characters and/or the viewers to eat it]] while levitating in the air. That's a bit creepy when you think about it.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLqL-G-i6_k Monster Cookie.]] It's AllJustADream but the dream-cookie apparently used to be a monster before [[BodyHorror gradually turning into a cookie.]]
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FHdozMqFCQ Lead Away episode]]. It basically tells kids that there's a substance that [[ParanoiaFuel could be anywhere]] and could make you very ill and it can get ''[[BodyHorror inside]]'' of your body. And all with a lighthearted tone. And this line during the Lead Police song.

* There was one episode in the early 90's where the main plot of the episode was a bit unsettling. It's about Telly Monster who sees a gigantic number 11 appear before him in the middle of Sesame Street accompanied by some majestic music. Telly is amazed the 11 and wants to show it to his friends, but it keeps disappearing before he can get it to show it to anyone and only appears when he is looking. At one point, he almost gets to show it to someone; it appears while Zoe is sitting with him, but Zoe isn't even looking at it, and Telly keeps trying to get Zoe to turn around, but she completely ignores him and continues to talk to herself. This could qualify as nightmare fuel because the music and the image of the giant 11 were quite unsettling, plus kids could relate to the frustrations Telly goes through throughout the episode. It's very possible this episode will never air on TV again since the image of the 11 might remind some people of...a certain historical landmark that no longer exists.

* This [[https://youtu.be/DQPLY9uxiss sketch]] with Grover and Mr. Johnson takes place in a coffee shop. The scary part of this sketch happens at the end after the cow drinks the coffee and gets so caffeinated with bulged eyes running around making very deranged-sounding moo's.

* [[https://youtu.be/8F-tLCHlCEw Beware of Winter]] is a song with a very haunting melody that could surely make kids terrified of the season all together!

* Cookie Monster has had his share of nightmares, too, including a particularly creepy one about cookies. During a skit where he spends the night at Ernie's (Bert did not appear in the sketch, which was (incidentally) supposed to reassure that [[AnAesop nightmares aren't real]]), he has a dream where he is the head baker at a bakery and is greeted by cookies ... except as he tries to grab them to eat, they all drift away and they mock him, particularly with their song. Cookie eventually cries in frustration and is scared of the creepy cookies. Ernie wakes him up and saves him from his nightmare. A partial in-universe example comes toward the end, when Ernie attempts to comfort Cookie with a plate of cookies, causing him to flee ... but only temporarily.

* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RblfIpWsQYo F for Faces]]" from 1992 by Ken Brown and Lisa Crafts has a person's face morph into other faces along with non-human things such as a robot. While the background music is a CrowningMusicOfAwesome, the cartoon has scared many children if you look at the comment section.
