** A bit more subtle, but there were a few [[DeusAngstMachina angsty episodes]] that worked a number on younger viewers, such as the aforementioned ''Challenger'' episode.
*** The abruptness of the cut in the middle of the ''Challenger'' episode is pretty scary. They're in class with Mike (their teacher) saying, "A lady teacher's going up on the shuttle! I'm going to bring my TV so we can watch!" and all of the kids are cheering. Then, the very next thing we see is Punky rushing into her home crying. [[WhamEpisode Wham]].

** And the infamous ''Challenger'' episode, especially since it came out two months after the RealLife disaster, so the trauma was still pretty fresh. On top of that, it was based on Soleil Moon Frye's own reaction to the incident. TV Guide gave the episode a "cheer" in their Cheers & Jeers page for it helping kids to come to terms with the tragedy.
