Top 10 Most Disturbing Moments In Cartoons

The Top Ten
1 Blue Cat Blues From Tom and Jerry

Suicide isn't even supposed to be cartoony...lots of people have offed themselves because of being driven to these feelings...

Spoiler: the episode ends with Tom and Jerry sit on a railway track, waiting for the train to run them over.

Who thought this episode was a good idea? There is nothing funny about suicide.

2 Ren Beats George Liquor With the Paddle - Ren & Stimpy

This scene was so violent that Nickelodeon never aired this episode on their channel!

To be honest after seeing stuff like family guy and adult party cartoon this is pretty tame, but I guess by the time this came out it was pretty bad I guess

That was horrifying. Good episode, but horrifying.

3 "You're Not Perfect" - Courage the Cowardly Dog

I grew up on this show. It's a good show but most of the episodes are kind of disturbing.

Still can't believe I had to add this... Does a CGI blue fetus disturb you?

When I first saw the whole episode, I went to sleep with a golf club.

4 Azula's Meltdown - Avatar the Last Airbender

Honestly, when I saw Avatar the Last Airbender, I was honestly creeped out and confused by this scene. Still, majority of me was experiencing feelings of being afraid and traumatized, while keeping a shocked face. Something about Azula's eyes flickering with whatever shock flame magic she had left of her, whilst crying and throwing a tantrum over losing/dying to Toph and Aang.

After Mai and Ty Lee betray her at the Boiling Rock Azula delves deeper into madness banishing everyone who crosses her in one moment where she's doing her own hair she sees an image of her mother in the mirror.

5 Normal is Good - My Life as a Teenage Robot

According to rumours, a third "Raggedy Android" episode was going to be made, but Nickelodeon rejected it because it was too dark.
As if this one wasn't messed up already...

This episode used to creep me out as a kid. Especially the ending.

That ending was just so creepy!

6 Zim Stealing Kid's Organs - Invader Zim

Yeah... this... this again, yay? But for real, how was this ever a good idea?

Especially the chase scene. How is this not number one?

He replaces them with everyday objects!

7 Speed Demon - The Power Puff Girls

Now, there's a messed up moment in this episode, and that's when everyone in the almost ancient-looking town starts pointing their fingers at the Power Puff Girls and starts shouting in a repetitive, madness mantra, that it's their fault. I bet rewatching this episode must have been hard to rewatch as an adult, due to the madness mantra part.

Creepy and sorta disturbing episode.

"Imagine if the world went to hell and it was your fault.
And you were like 6 when it was your fault.
And everyone was telling you that it was your fault."
-MrEnter

Nevertheless, it's a good episode.

The PPGs accidentally skip 50(? ) years during a race home and evil prevails in the decades they were gone. The broken citizens who once idolized the heroes now actively resent and blame them for everything bad that's happened. I still have a hard time not skipping "it's your fault"

8 "HOW ABOUT A HUG?" - The Simpsons

It almost felt like watching a scene from the Simpsons tree house of horror segment.

9 Pinky Pie Hallucinates From Party of One - My Little Pony

Ah yes, the inspiration for Pinkamena. The fact that Pinkie Pie's going slowly insane doesn't even help, as she pretends she hears the flour sack/bag talking, including 3 rocks stacked up, and also, a bucket full of beetroot, and lint. They have party hats on, and Pinkie Pie starts hallucinating and going insane all because her friends couldn't come to her party. No wonder why this inspired Pinkamena and her long hair hairstyle.

Poor pinky pie. She went completely psyco after her jerkey friends wouldn't split the news about a surprise party. That episode still kinda gives me the creeps. It was all twilights fault! She decided to do the ONE THING that makes pinky pie go psyco. Poor pinky pie. She was brainwashed by her own friends. I was so glad to have that 100+ episode season over, until they had that mega marathon that showed every single episode including this one. This is the one time I feel bad for someone on my little ponie. Way to go twilight! Way to go!

10 "I'm not Stu!" - Rugrats

The creepy baby from Angelica's Worst Nightmare is even worse.

The Contenders
11 "I'm not Tommy!" - Rugrats
12 Linka's Cousin Boris Dies from a Drug Overdose - Captain Planet

A rare moment for a kids show, a character dies from a drug overdose.

13 Bev Bighead Tries to Seduce Rocko - Rockos Modern Life

Y'know, the word "Disturbing" doesn't always have to be listed as "Shock value or traumatizing crap you see as a kid", but wildly inappropriate stuff so inappropriate it falls under the word disturbing. When Mrs.Bighead (Bev) in the banned episode "Leap-Frogs" attempts to seduce or *AHEM* have intercourse with Rocko, she's discovered by her husband Mr. Bighead to be found cheating on him. No wonder this episode was banned for its disturbing sexual jokes, scenes, and themes of seduction and infidelity on one's significant other.

There's a good reason why this episode was banned Mrs. Bighead tries to come on to Rocko not appropriate for a kids show.

This episode was funny but had many adult jokes in it, like a lot of Rocko episodes

14 A Badger Tears Homer's Stomach Open - The Simpsons
15 Alan's Live-Action Face - The Amazing World of Gumball
16 Arnold's Nightmare From Part Time Friends Episode - Hey Arnold

Three episodes that scarred me more than this were arnold visits arnie, four eyed jack, And ghost bride.

17 Squidward Wanders Through SpongeBob's Replica - SpongeBob SquarePants

Ah. Squid's visit. The most horrifying episode of SpongeBob ever to hit the air. Basically, SpongeBob reconstructs his house to look just like squidward's house. And he traps squidward inside. Then the episode just goes WAY TOO FAR into detail of how disturbing this was. There was horror music, and it was just so uncomfortable to watch, because the implication was SpongeBob breaking into squidward's house enough times to replicate everything. And that SpongeBob is some kind of psychological stalker.

The ending where Squidward goes crazy and serves his burnt casserole is quite terrifying. There's also a controversial portrait of a crying clown, but I never actually saw it. The entire episode involves an exact replica of Squidward's house, and there isn't really any humour... it's like the writer woke up from a scarring nightmare and wrote his thoughts out in Celtx.

18 Horsefly Closeup - SpongeBob SquarePants

Wow, I see this moment getting talked a lot often. So basically, this originates from this episode called "Wormy". At one point, all the characters have the butterfly land on their underwater helmets or faces, and horsefly close-ups appear. Imagine the rest and you'll know why everyone talks about their fair share with this moment when it's brought up.

On a side note, the episode Are You Happy Now? was a rather disturbing episode with the last half of it showing a depressed Squidward moping around his house with a few suicide jokes inserted (I.e: Sticking his head in the oven, only to reveal burned cookies, Tying a rope on the ceiling (Hanging joke), only to reveal a bird cage. The episode then ends with Squidward being kidnapped and shipped to the Krusty Krab where he is met with paper mache SpongeBobs. Squidward then looses it, cutting and beating them all like a complete psychopath until he is left dancing on a pile of butchered paper mache SpongeBobs

19 Angelica's Baby Brother - Rugrats
20 Parker Gets a Tapeworm After Eating a Raw Burger - Mr. Meaty

It was a terrible day to see this moment (I saw it on a top 20 video) in my opinion Mr Meaty is stupid! I HATED THE SHOW! It's a pretty raunchy show. It's really unsettling and another guy gets a tapeworm inside of him now. This is what cause my fear of worms (most medical ones but worms in genral

Ugh...I don't want to even talk about it...

21 Courage Plays Dead Bodies Turned Puppets - Courage the Cowardly Dog

This freaked me out! courage finding out that the great fussili was turning all his actors into puppets.Then Eustace and Muriel turn into Puppets Muriel:Oh I don't feel quite like myself

22 Ren Describes What He's Gonna Do To Stimpy And Sven - Ren & Stimpy

This scared me because we already know Ren is messed up! But in this one he makes the audience feel uncomfortable saying all these disturbing things he's going to do to Stimpy and Sven always ending with " Ya, that's what I'm gonna do! "

This scene was funny to me...

23 Ed Attacks his Friends - Ed, Edd, n' Eddy
24 Imperfectcell - Dragon Ball Z

This is an episode about one of Cell's forms, Imperfect Cell. The episode shows a scene where Imperfect Cell uses his stinger-like tail to insert and inject a man, only to drain out his energy as it shows said man becoming floppy, like those deactivated Halloween inflatables you see at Lowe's or Home Depot. What's even disturbing is that people make fetish art of a character or their character getting the same treatment by Imperfect Cell.

Beginning of the episode shows a man slowly get absorbed by a Cthulhu looking creature. The reaction and detail of the man are what add to the disturbing feel of the episode

25 Spongebob rips off Squidward's toenail - Spongebob Squarepants

It wasn't Spongebob himself that did it Squidward moved the sofa and then the horror happened
