Creator/{{Disney}} is for kids, [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids right]]? Well, yeah, it is (usually).[[note]]Before you toss bricks at us, adults can enjoy it as well - Disney is family entertainment, after all.[[/note]] But that doesn't mean that they can't scare the pants off of the kiddos with moments that were meant to be frightening, and even then, these can scare adults too.

!!Examples in (more-or-less) alphabetical order:
* ''Film/AChristmasCarol2009''. The epitome of this actually comes ''before'' The Ghost Of Christmas Yet To Come. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_Mn9SY8Ls8 The Ghost Of Christmas Present]] ages rapidly as the night progresses, and begins ''decaying'' realistically. The children "Ignorance" and "Want" appear, looking like vampires. They also grow older, morphing into representations of the fates that commonly befall the poor: the boy becomes a knife-wielding thief (who tries to stab Scrooge), then a prisoner behind iron bars; the girl turns into a bedraggled ''prostitute,'' then is bound in a straightjacket. All the while, they [[IronicEcho repeat the statements Scrooge made about the poor.]] And through the whole thing, ''Christmas Present is '''laughing'''''. His ''skull'' even laughs. This is one Disney movie you should not take your 5-year-old kids to see. In fact, New Zealand, after parental complaints, changed their original PG rating of the movie to an M rating due to the level of disturbing content in this movie.
** The appearance of the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come is terrifying in its own right. Scrooge runs, pleading and terrified, and is about to be dragged into his own grave.
* ''Disney/DarbyOGillAndTheLittlePeople''. The banshee might be the most terrifying thing to ever appear in a family friendly movie. WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic is very inclined to agree, naming the banshee the scariest nostalgic moment.
* ''WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian'' had Twinkle the Marvel Horse, a deeply disturbed rainbow horse with the mannerisms of ChristopherWalken. Most of his clips have been gathered [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsnnhPl2KUg here]]. His scenes are extremely jarring because they're the [[MoodWhiplash only source of dark humor in the series]].
-->'''Twinkle the Marvel Horse:''' But I didn't even get to the part about the shrieking maggots of grief, yet.
* The breakdown from "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iumEGAUceDg Der Fuehrer's Face]]". "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQqCeEG5hs0 Education For Death]]" is even worse: a short where a little boy becomes a Nazi and lives a crappy dystopia life before dying at the end of the film. The ''really'' scary part is how close this was to the reality...
* ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' was normally so tame it made ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' seem edgy. Then out of left field comes the episode "For Pete's Sake." The plot follows Goofy's neighbor Pete, who, due to a contrived misunderstanding, believes someone is stalking him with murderous intent. Some coincidental events follow, which fuel his (and the young viewers') paranoia. The most shockingly morbid scene is where a police officer tells Pete about a case similar to his, and shows him a photo of what the victim looked like when they found him. Pete reels in horror, but the policeman says it's the wrong photo, and this is just a bowl of chili. When he hands him another photo, Pete says it's another bowl of chili. "No, that's him," says the cop.
* ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse'': [[MissingEpisode "Minnie Takes Care Of Pluto"]] is essentially a remake of "Pluto's Judgement Day". After Minnie gets pissed off that Mickey dumps Pluto in her care while he's on vacation Pluto's [[GoodAngelBadAngel shoulder devil]] convinces him that Minnie wants to kill him. This leads to a NightmareSequence where Minnie '''''buries him alive''''' and he winds up in Hell. Watch it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3vq4dwFSoU here]] if you dare.
* You wouldn't expect the Disney version of a popular story to be the most graphic version, but that's what happened with ''MickeysChristmasCarol''. When Scrooge (played by [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales Scrooge McDuck]], naturally) is in the graveyard scene with the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, the Ghost shoves Scrooge into his own open grave. The bottom of the grave then begins to open up, and smoke and fire begin wafting up from it. A terrified Scrooge begins scrambling up the sides of the grave to try and get out, but the Ghost, revealed to be BigBad Pete, doesn't let him. We're then treated to a bone-rattling scene of Pete laughing hysterically as the bottom of the grave completely falls away to become a pit of fire and brimstone, with Scrooge frantically begging for his life and trying to avoid falling into the pit. When he finally falls, he's screaming "I'll CHANGE! I'LL CHAAAAAANGE!" Most other adaptations typically only have Scrooge dying alone and unmourned, or suffering some sort of LaserGuidedKarma for being such an asshole (the adaptations done by WesternAnimation/TheJetsons and WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}, for instance) but the Disney one is the only version of the story that actually shows Scrooge at the risk of burning in Hell.
** [[{{Film/Scrooged}} The only animated]] [[{{Film/Scrooge1970}} one, at least ...]]
* ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'':
** Randall. At one point he attempts to throttle Sully, and Mike couldn't even tell! If Mike hadn't thrown the "snow cone," Sully would have been killed.
** Sully may be a UglyCute GentleGiant, but when he's in full-on scare mode...''yikes!''
* ''Mickey Mouse (2013 shorts)''
** The episode ''Ghoul Friend'' features a rather grotesque zombified Goofy.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'':
** What's under [[TheSwarm Oogie Boogie's rags.]]
** Lock, Shock, and Barrel (the three kids who dress as Trick-or-Treaters) are sent by Jack to kidnap Santa. Along the way, they sing a song about all the horrible things they're going to do to jolly old St. Nick. It's actually not too bad... but if you buy the soundtrack you'll discover that the movie contained a cut-down version. The full-length version goes ''on'' and ''on'' about what they want to do to poor Santa.
* The jackal from ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'', grown to a huge size and sporting GlowingEyesOfDoom, proclaiming with a demon voice.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'':
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Wd0K_dirE4 scene]] where Muntz knocks over the flight caps of all the people he has ostensibly killed.
** And the fact that ''he wants to murder a child'', and we see it explicitly shown, not just by trying to drop him off the side of the house, or something, but with a ''realistic looking rifle''. Pixar actually made a kids' film where a ''creepy old man tries to shoot a little kid''.
*** He tried to murder him before that in an even scarier way - ejecting him from his dirigible while he's still tied to a chair!
** "An old man taking his house to Paradise Falls... (drops a helmet which rolls over to hit Carl's chair) and that's the best one yet. I can't ''wait'' to hear how it ends." *insert creepy SlasherSmile here*
* ''Franchise/WinnieThePooh'':
* Donald's [[AIIsACrapshoot malfunctioning video game]] from the ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'' episode "All Hands On Duck".
* [[BodyHorror The ending]] of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIA0XmnspHo this old "Circle Time" short]]. Bear in mind that this was aimed at preschoolers.

* The mascot costumes at Disneyland were a lot different back then. Unlike the cartoonier, and more accurate costumes seen today, the costumes like the Mickey and Minnie ones (seen here: [[http://9gag.com/gag/aG9R550]]) were a lot skinnier, and had warped elongated faces. And there's just something wrong about those foam eyes, and those seemingly angry/emotionless expressions the costumes give off.
* The 1998 video reissue of ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' stood from other titles as the previews began with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFPNX88BEAQ a framing device.]] Jodi Benson is there, and she is joined by two goldfish. Why does this make this page, the two fish are rendered as [[UncannyValley realistic as possible]], and with gravely voices to match!
