Nightmare Fuel: Mr. Peabody & Sherman
- In Ancient Egypt, there's a quick yet Squicky moment where Mr. Peabody and Sherman are thrown into the Egyptian tomb, and Sherman grabs Peabody's paw in the darkness. Only when Peabody lights a torch, Sherman is holding the hand of a decomposing mummy! Mr. Peabody's pun "That's disarming" didn't help.
- Seeing both versions of Sherman and Mr. Peabody attempting to separate their paradox selves was disturbing.
- Also the fact that after the two have merged it should still mean there is a copy of Penny trapped in ancient Egypt about to marry King Tut.
- Ms. Grunion herself just has the appearance of that mean, scary lady that is there to frighten children. Even her facial expressions when sharpening a pencil and blowing the shavings off is somewhat chilling.
- Also, something of an Adult Fear, the idea of someone trying to have your child taken from you for such a petty reason.
- "Don't you know what happens to dogs that bite?"
- Leonardo da Vinci's robot "son", intentionally so.
Leonardo: Children are not machines, Mr. Peabody. I tried to build one...it was creepy. (shudders)
- A lot of Adult Fear comes from the situations that Penny and Sherman get into.
- In France, Mr. Peabody calls out for Sherman and is worried about him because the Reign of Terror was just about to begin.
- In Egypt, Penny nearly gets her hand stabbed, complete with tense music and her crying and whimpering.
- In Italy, they nearly crash from flying Da Vinci's mechanism.
- In Troy, Sherman nearly gets murdered by a soldier and Penny nearly falls off a cliff while being trapped inside the Trojan Horse.
- The scene with Penny bullying Sherman in the cafeteria can be this, especially if one is or was a victim of bullying.
