* ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack: The Series'' had some pretty creepy stuff, like the hideously mutated recurring nemesis Alpha.

* '''Captain Scarlet''' was a super-marionette show dating back to the 60's. The premise of the show was that earth was at war with an alien race that can take any form, much like the scrulls. First, the alien would kill an unassuming human, then copy his form, then go on missions of sabotage. While it is true this show was made up puppets, this was actually a very adult show. But it was miss-packaged in the united states as a children show, and was shown along side shows like 'rocky and bullwinkle'. So, little kids (like me) who was still too young to get a good grasp of the concept of death would see this program. And in 'Captain Scarlet', people are actually murdered - crushed in car lifts, cars with brake lines cut going over cliffs, strangling and so on. Then a light would play over the dead body and a person identical to the victim would be standing there, and go off to do evil things. If that was not bad enough, the true nightmare fuel was during the end credits, where this Captain Scarlet was shown in artwork, in the middle of death traps - chained sinking in the ocean, facing a shark, about to get blown up by a bomb. All this was pretty heady stuff. I don't know how this compares to modern animation, but is was scary stuff at the time.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAnimalsOfFarthingWood'': Several of the main animal characters were killed off during the journey: shot by hunters, cooked as meal, run over by a car,... Highly [[BloodierandGorier traumatic]] since it seemed to be a [[CrapsacchirineWorld general TV series about cute talking animal characters from the start, but actually the makers strived for realistic death scenes.]]

* The Spanish CGI shorts series ''Clanners'' has the alternate form of Débora, an adorable slug-like creature who [[BigEater crazes to eat]]. Other than having a big red MadEye, she eats in an instant monstrous form where she bases in (or stretches through) her big can hat and has blank white eyes and a large mouth with sharp teeth, not to mention the less cute voice and quicker movement. [[http://www.rtve.es/infantil/serie/clanners/video/lavad-toooodos-dientes/1212987/ One of the shorts]] has a frightening presentation of this form.

* HBO's ''Literature/{{Babar}}'', based off of the famous book series, aired from 1989-1994 and while most of the series offers "slice of life" morality lessons, complete with anthropomorphism, the first few episodes of the first season are quite depressing for a 7 year old or even an adult (despite the fact that, as Babar tells these stories in flashback, you know he survives and all will be well).
** The pilot episode, "Babar's First Step", in which a viewer is introduced to the merry elephant tribe before Babar grew up and "civilized" them, in which Babar's blissfull times of playing in ponds with other baby elephants and his mother are ended by a hunter with a rifle. He gets no name...he is "the Hunter". The elephants don't know what the sound of his rifle blasting means, and [[WhatAnIdiot the elders assume it is a "monster".]] Babar's mother is eventually shot while the herd are fleeing the Hunter, complete with [[TheWoobie Babar]] being thrown from her back and screaming and crying for her in the mud after she is shot.
*** Then getting to watch her make a last, desperate attempt to cover their escape by charging the Hunter; she gets finally shot and falls over on screen, close range.[[TearJerker This is complete with sad music, an elephant funeral, AND geting to watch baby Babar wail]] and try to snuggle with his (dead) mother. Much of it is depicted here [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgXYUSAYHZc]], from about 1:40 in to 4:20. It is so bad that it even causes Babar to have nightmares in the first half of episode 2, "City Ways", about his mother's death, complete with a spooky storm outside. Thankfully, [[YouMonster the]] [[YouBastard Hunter]] dies a deserving death in episode five.
*** Made in 1989, elephant cognition (funerals included) had already received considerable publicity. You could not tell your children that this was "just a cartoon".
** Also,the aforementioned [[Wham fate]] of [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse the Hunter]] himself is pretty freaky as it is distressingly Unsettling. In the episode, the Hunter sets a fire in the jungle to help him and his men fight {{Babar]] and the other animals, but the fire gets out of control and starts sweeping back over the camp. [[ScrewthisImOuttaHere His men]] freak out and drive off in a jeep, being so panicked that they actually ''drive straight through the closed gate'' in their justified haste to get away. [[TheDeterminator The Hunter]], however, refuses to leave, screaming at them to come back, then doing a SkywardScream about how he will ''not'' run and [[IronicEcho how he vows to destroy the animals...]] [[JerkassWoobie which then]] trails off into a ScreamDesolationShot of incoherent,Enraged wailing [[GoryDiscrectionShot as flames simply sweep over the screen.]] In a later episode, there's a [[CallBack flashback]] to this scene as Babar talks to his children about the past, and he mentions almost casually [[NothingIsScarier that was the last that was ever seen of the Hunter.]]
** The episode "The City of Elephants". Halfway through the episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5rKprBF6AM]], starting around 2:11, Babar has this twisted nightmare where he gets confronted by "The [[EldritchAbonimation Beast of Misfortune"]], a giant red elephant that [[HellisthatNoise laughs/growls]] etc. in a very deep voice, and "The Beast of Haste", a small white ghost elephant thing capable of [[{{Shapeshifter}} contorting itself into various shapes.]]
*** Here is an explanation on [[DisneyAcidSequence what's]] really so [[SurpriseCreepy twisted]]; a door forms on the end of the Beast of Misfortune's trunk, that same beast's head going through a floating window, the Beast of Haste contorting itself into a spiral around Babar as he falls into the other beast's mouth, the Beast of Haste being split into an army of six mini-Beasts, and The Beast of Misfortune,slowly melting away as [[TheDogBitesBack Babar]] chases them away. It just [[UncannyVally looks]] [[NightmareSeqience so]][[MindScrew wrong.]]
