Top 10 Creepiest Baby Einstein Moments

theendoftime
Baby Einstein is a franchise created by Julie Aigner-Clark. She created it as entertainment for babies and toddlers, so it must be all fun and games, right? Wrong. Baby Einstein has some scary parts in it, but babies don't even realize it until later. And it can scar you for life, like it did for me. So I'm counting down the top 10 creepiest Baby Einstein moments.

NOTE- I only found exactly 10 creepy moments in Baby Einstein, and that was perfect! The problem is...they were from the very first four movies: Language Nursery, Baby Mozart, Baby Bach, and Baby Shakespeare.

The Top Ten

1 Zylon Dragon (Baby Bach) Zylon Dragon (Baby Bach)

This thing still gives me nightmares

This dragon still gives me nightmares.

This is the only thing on this list I was afraid of. I was odd, because if there was a moment I considered scary in a video, I wouldn’t watch it all, whereas with this one, even though with this one I was scare do it this moment but it was still my favorite video for some reason. I was scared of the Cow in Language Nursery, the Zylon Dragon in Baby Bach, the opening Vincent puppet show in Baby Van Gogh, the Mousetrap in Baby Dolittle, the Elephant sneezing in Baby Da Vinci, and the post-credits puppet show in Baby Monet. I would refuse to watch Baby Galileo because of the stars puppet show because I felt bad when the baby kangaroo bumped into his mom.

He look like sock puppet from blues clues episode puppets

2 Bard the Dragon (Baby Mozart) Bard the Dragon (Baby Mozart)

My opinion is the board DragonIs not scary

Ya I was scarred for life up until recently. Bard still kind of spoops me though

I'm not that scard of him now, but when I was little, I was so scared of bard! I got over the fear of the puppet a few years later, but I'm still very scared of the drawing version of him. in the end of the little video tutorial about baby einstein that was at the end of the original videos when they were on vhs tapes, the last ten second of the video shows bard as a drawing, and he just stares. it creeps the heck out of me(using clean language here for little children) still to this day, and it gives me nightmares

BLAH! Bard the Dragon tops as the creepiest moment in Baby Einstein. The puppet shows starring him, (A New Friend and Blah! ) scared me equally as a baby. I've had nightmares about him, and I remember one like it was yesterday. He appeared one day in front of me, and I tried to blah him away. Worst mistake. He started blahing at me just like he did in Baby Mozart. Several times. Then, I ran away, and the last thing I saw was Bard. Then I woke up. - theendoftime

3 Bard Jumpscare (Baby Shakespeare) Bard Jumpscare (Baby Shakespeare)

The Bard jumpscare was not scary at all. Bard was only scary in Baby Mozart, when he did all these scary facial expressions. Bard was much nicer to the audience in Baby Shakespeare because he wasn’t scary.

The six note opening introduces Bard the Dragon, host of Baby Shakespeare. But don't let my description fool you. Watch and you'll see yourself. - theendoftime

Which is symphony 9, 2nd movement, Beethoven

THIS USED TO SCARE THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS OUT OF ME. every time my VHS would end and there was a black screen I always thought he’d come walking through. Many nightmares of him just popping up. Terrified me. I called him “the green puppet”. Thought I was gonna have a good time but y’all I never thought I would have minor ptsd from a puppet :,)

4 Dolls (Language Nursery) Dolls (Language Nursery)

5 Bard Plush Toy (Baby Mozart) Bard Plush Toy (Baby Mozart)

Yes, when I watched Baby Mozart, Mr Buggity Bugget dropped down. I had the old version.

This toy Replaces Mr Buggity Bugget by the right start in 2004(& I love the 2004 version of Mozart)

When I watched Baby Mozart, the video did not have this toy. Instead, a caterpillar dropped. Also, the background was white instead of black.

Right after Turkish March, a Bard the Dragon plush randomly falls to the ground and scares everyone with a loud noise. - theendoftime

6 Pecking Rooster (Baby Mozart) Pecking Rooster (Baby Mozart)

The heck?

The rooster pecks three times, each making a loud noise. The first two would surprise someone, but the last peck waits a couple seconds so it can make you pee your pants. - theendoftime

This is the creepiest scene in the entire Baby Einstein series! The 3 pecks sometimes give me nightmares. - JackJack8ack

7 Meep Meep the Chicken (Baby Bach) Meep Meep the Chicken (Baby Bach)

The very beginning of Baby Bach. With that background music, this is pretty creepy stuff. - theendoftime

When I was first watching this, the first thing I heard was chickens clucking and I screamed: " Chicken! "

He's real name is also Cornelius the dancing chicken and when I first saw him in Baby Bach,he looked like a cartoony chicken,because of the eyes.

8 Robots (Baby Bach) Robots (Baby Bach)

Creepy, but it wasn't the scariest thing that happened in Baby Bach. - theendoftime

It's actually called Sunny the singing sunflower

The Contenders

11 Giraffe Cone Puppet (World Animals)

I agree I was afraid of that when I was born until now but still so scary to 4 month olds or something. I HATE IT WHEN BABY EINSTEIN HAS CREEPY MOMENTS!

As a kid, the giraffe cone puppet scared the living crap out of me and my siblings. So bad, it got to the point it gave me nightmares.

This cone puppet was nightmare fuel for me when I was young. I was horrified of this disturbing kazoo voiced nightmare giraffe I got so scared to the point were I decided to not watch it anymore. Right now I've grown out of this drama. But when watching it today,I still get a little afraid inside.

When I was 2 years old, I got a nightmare where is was in a haunted, old room, the lights were off, and the T.V was off, then I heard a kazoo sound, and then the Giraffe Cone Puppet found me and it tried to kill me! - PBSDoink2002

14 Baby Einstein opening

So creepy. When I was 4 my baby sister LOVED watching those. When I saw the theme for the first time and I had nightmares for weeks. One time my sister was watching it, I ran and hid behind the couch. I’ve grown out of my phase, but whenever I see it, I still get scared

When I was a toddler, me and my sister would run into the kitchen and wait for the caterpillar to leave. I grew out of that phase now. I just realized that the caterpillar was not going for me and my sister's souls, it was only friendly.

It used to scare me as a kid but it also made me feel oddly satisfied at the same time. Isn't that strange?

Caterpillar: (smiles in a creepy way) I want your soul!

THIS TOY GETS REPLACE’D BY
Barnyard Knuckleheads - Duck by Mary Meyer

Oh god, that duck is creepy

20 Possessed Van Gogh (Baby Van Gogh)

I do agree on this. Van Gogh was one of the scariest episodes to me because of this! Also was Van Gogh really possessed?

Not creepy AT ALL - NostalgiaMonkey

This scene was so scary when I was a kid now I'm a teenager and I don't get scared that much

At the beginning of baby van Gogh he comes out with paint all over his face

I was a little bit scared of this when I was little but not really. I actually have this toy now. - NostalgiaMonkey

This one scared me when I was little

First it's just staring at you, creepily, then a drum rapidly plays getting faster and faater as the frogs head goes up, and then jumpscare. The jumpscare is the frog flipping, the part that scared me the most is the BOING sound.

I don’t like the part where it rises up

25 Dog Puppet (Baby Mozart)

I always cried about it when I was a baby

I’m a bit surprised that this isn’t really higher on the list. When I was little I was afraid of it because of it’s bark and my parents forced me to sit down with them and watch it in order to help me face my fears. But they soon realized it was gonna take me a long time to face that fear, so they let me try it out on my own. I’ve not been afraid ever since.
