People Share The Scenes From Children's Movies That Still Haunt Them Today

There are so so many films that don't require an R rating or a knife wielding sociopath to leave a viewer emotionally scarred for life. Sure that visit from the devil through an 11 year old girl is seared into the psyche of many but so are plenty of whacked out, horrifying images from movies rated G, which is supposed to mean safe for all. Bambi, The Dark Crystal, The Lion King? All fantasy and joy? I THINK NOT!

_Redditor _havetopee32 _wondered _What image or scene from a children's movie/show did you find disturbing?

DON'T EAT TOMMY!!

There was a scene in'Rugrats' that I don't remember too well, but Tommy has a dream about this older, bigger baby that bullied him (?) and was about to eat Tommy or something.

I just remember being scared to death of that scene as a little kid.

THAT WAS FOR KIDS?

My default answer to this is always the child-catcher scene from 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang'. It still creeps me out more than any horror movie I've seen.

ANYTHING WITH A DOG IS TOO MUCH...

In 'Homeward Bound' when Shadow was stuck in the mud pit. My family had a nearly identical golden retriever and (according to my mother) little 4 year old me was having a meltdown in the theater. I watched that movie recently and had to fast forward through this scene....

HELLO I'M PEE-WEE HERMAN!

I know this has been mentioned several times in the past, but the 'The Pee Wee Herman Movie' with the scene that had large Marge.

PHONE HOME.

I don't know if _'E.T.' _counts as a children's movie, but when E.T.'s health starts deteriorating near the end of the movie it was horrifying to me.

WE LOVE YOU THOMAS.

The episode of 'Thomas the Tank Engine' where they wall Henry up in the tunnel.

His sad eyes when the wall is almost done has haunted me ever since

This one.

KEEP YOUR FACE ON.

If anyone have seen the movie, 'The Witches?' the whole movie specially when Anjelica Huston peeled her face is so scary.

BUZZ AND WOODY CAN'T SAVE EVERYBODY!

The baby doll head on spider leg body from 'Toy Story 1.' That thing scarred me for life. Haunted my nightmares for YEARS

OH TO BE A REAL BOY.

In the 'Pinocchio' movie when he goes to the Coachman who wants him to find boys to take to Pleasure Island.

OH ARTAX!!

'The Neverending Story'...The bit in the marsh.

AN 80'S CLASSIC!

Also the scene in 'The Goonies' where they were going to put chunk's hand in a blender and he was stuck in the freezer with that dead guy.

UNICORNS FOREVER!

'The Last Unicorn' when the bull is pushing her into the ocean.

I SWITCHED TO MICROWAVES.

I think it was the air conditioner from 'Brave Little Toaster.'

Woah nostalgia. I need to watch that movie again, forgot about it till now.

Also there was the incinerator (I think) from 'Ferngully.'

KEEP YOUR GOLDEN TICKET!

The scene in 'Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory' where they are in the tunnel. It went from happy candy growing on trees and chocolate waterfalls to why am I watching a horror compilation.

As a little kid (and even as an adult) it threw me off guard.

NOT THE DIP!

Gotta mention the cute little shoe toon getting the dip in 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit'. Pair this with the fridge-horror fact that the souls of the weasels at the end who laugh themselves to death ascend to heaven, while the soul of the one who gets kicked into the dip apparently gets destroyed along with his body. I guess you get no afterlife if you get the dip.

Poor little shoe.

MAKE WAY FOR PRINCE ALI...

The Cave of Wonders in 'Aladdin.' When that massive lion head comes out of the sand and speaks in that demonic voice it always freaked me out.

OH CORALINE! CLOSE MY EYES.

The entire movie 'Coraline.' I watched it at a birthday party in elementary school and I had nightmares for months about the eyes.

WHO NEEDS MEDS AFTER THAT?

The Pink Elephants skit from 'Dumbo.'

THERE AREN'T ENOUGH TISSUES...

The bulldog from 'All Dogs Go to Heaven' being dragged down to hell at the end of the movie.

ONLY WITH THE LIGHTS ON.

'The Dark Crystal' ... the whole movie!

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.
