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 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.
