2 Sebrina - Pokemon

Sexy actually

3 Bert - Sesame Street

There's just something that disturbed me about him when I was a kid.
It was probably the obvious eyebrows that made him look like he was always angry. - Rocko

If you want to see a creepy Bert, look up "Bert is Evil" on the internet. You'll be shocked at what you find. - SavageLG

Bert isn't creepy. Let me tell you that.

His brow scare me

4 Teletubbies - Teletubbies

I can't tell if I wanna call um cute or creepy. Let's just call it cute but deadly.

Yeah I mean the word teletubbies is scary this should be like top 5 it sounds like kill body's - Batmaniscole

I had a night mare once about them and no I was not a little kid

They are so cute! I have a small stuffed Lala

5 Artemis - Sailor Moon

Artemis is a creepy pervert who is in love with Sailor Venus despite being married to Luna. I heard Artemis once watched Sailor Venus shower! How creepy!

6 Swedish Chef - Muppets

He will chop that poor chicken's head off soon enough...

His gibberish is kind of wired. What if he's talking about murder, sexual asult, child abusing, or world domination? It just makes him creepier.

You know what? I used to have a plushie toy of this character I got from mcdonalds one day, I locked it far away, in a cabinet downstairs so I'd never see it again because this character creeped me out. Just terrifying!

He is kinda creepy. I mean we think he's saying: "smrfmgrg mrrrf frjropsdurfmrfjerjerjer"
But what if he's actually saying:
"I stalk you in the night. You have no where to hide from my kitchen knife"

Ya never know...

7 Jay Jay - Jay Jay The Jet Plane

I Bet you have never heard of this, its like Thomas the tank engine mixed with planes, its not pretty is what I'm trying to say. - DapperPickle

It's like a CGI Thomas the Tank Engine with planes, awful plots, and creepy ass airplanes that look like that phone from Telechat.

All I need for my collection of stalk-you- in-your-sleep stuff in my life is a miniature jet plane with a Fofāo-like face where it's propeller is.

8 Elmo - Sesame Street

The old actor was a child molester! I hope he rots in hell new elmo actor is good but still elmo is creepy

The creepiest things of Elmo maybe are the big nose and his bulging eyes

Not scary.

9 Baby Sinclair - Dinosaurs

I love Baby Sinclair. - RalphBob


10 Rat'afak Plachta - Slniecko

The scariest thing I have ever seen. - myusernameisthis

He actually helped fight communisim ya know - MrNobody

I talked about this in Sesame Street and why I liked it but I didn't but anyway,I talked about it because I was talking about limbo and now he's well the most ugly thing ever. If I saw this thing dancing around on the street,I would call 911 straight away and never let him have fun,ok jk he can have fun but if you find him,never watch slniecko

I LOVE Ratafak! I think he is adorable! I just want to hug him. They should make toys of him. Don't hate on me, please. I can have my own opinion of Nosy Blanket. - RedTheGremlin

The Contenders

11 Spongebob - Spongebob Squarepants

And no, I don't mean the EXTREME CLOSE UP face's, the personality, he is just... Too nice. - DapperPickle

He isn't creepy unless you zoom in on his face its really detailed and scary

What NO! take him off the list

12 Alf - Alf Alf - Alf

That nose Should be Censored. - DapperPickle

Actually his whole face should be censored

It's a disordered anteater


13 Binyah Binyah Pollywog - Gullah Gullah island

Look it up, dingus. - DapperPickle

14 Luna - Bear in the Big Blue House

She traumatized me as a kid.

I don't think she's creepy.

15 Mr. Noseybonk - Jigsaw

Imagine if this was shown during World War II. We would all be on Hitler's side (For those of you who don't get the joke, there's a stereotype that Jews have big noses).

To be honest, that nose is way to big for his head. It's as long as three
of Subway's one-foot subs next to each other.

If you don't think he's creepy, what you need to do is go to YouTube and search for videos like
''Mr. Noseybonk Returns - Cake''
and ''Mr Noseybonk Returns - Fridge''
and just his appearance is terrifying

16 Parker - Mr. Meaty

All the puppets are pretty creepy, but the thing about Parker is that he stares right into your soul! - PeterG99

I'm thinking puppets and kids' shows don't mix.

17 Mr. Blobby - Noel's House Party Mr. Blobby - Noel's House Party

I'm british and this is my arch nemesis.

Haha he freaked out all the Americans. Being one of the stupidest characters of the 90s. (Except for early Mr Blobby, I think it was more comedy not kids character, did pranks on celebrities)

You guys are hypocrites you call Ren and Stimpy funny but call Mr Blobby scary.

18 Nobody - Sesame Street

I am just going to get my security Little Jerry and the Monotones plushies to keep me safe from this NIGHTMARE!

Whatever Jim Henson talks about as this character, it can be very unsettling. - SavageLG

He literally is just a face made out of rubber bands, which just floats in midair. This character no longer exists and has been replaced with a new character, but it is still a creepy character.

Can't believe this was actually on Sesame Street.

19 Giant Walrus - Pingu

This is just creepy.
No really. I'm surprised this didn't give me nightmares as a kid. - Rocko

He's terrifying! The way he just pierces out of the ground, and speaks a weird language which we don't know about, and traps poor pingu.

20 Morso - Morso

Even as a finn myself, I couldn't agree less that this is a creepy character... Out of all the design choices, they had to choose this... Why? Just why...?

21 Pee Wee Herman - Pee Wee's Playhouse Pee Wee Herman - Pee Wee's Playhouse Pee-wee Aloysius Herman is a comic fictional character created and portrayed by American comedian Paul Reubens.

The actor who played Pee Wee was caught masturbating in a porn theater.

22 Ren Hoek - Ren & Stimpy Ren Hoek - Ren & Stimpy
23 Freaky Fred - Courage The Cowardly Dog Freaky Fred - Courage The Cowardly Dog Freaky Fred is a fictional character from the Cartoon Network animated series, Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Fred is based off of Sweeney Todd, a psychopathic serial killer/barber. This guy was on a kid's show and is shown shaving Courage off the whole episode. Let that sink in for a bit... - lannypetersong

Let's Face it - All characters from courage the cowardly dog are creepy

24 The Wiggles Puppets - The Wiggles

Woody on crack - RedTheGremlin

25 Sasuga Minami - Miburi Tv

This show is really weird and inappropriate. The woman literally wears a shirt that says "I love p****". Also the little kids in the show are wearing Nirvana shirts for no reason.

26 The Groke - The Moomins The Groke - The Moomins

So creepy not evil just misunderstood but so creepy and so out of place when all other characters are so cute

27 Eustace's Trumpet - Courage the Cowardly Dog

It's a bugle, but I can't even barrel race because instead of the barrel I see that...bugle! - RedTheGremlin

This gave me nightmares when I was little.


Ew that thing is gross and weird and ew.

28 The Flute - H.R. Pufnstuf

To be honest, I find It hard to believe that most would find the flute appearing creepier than the visual abomination that is the titular character.

THAT THING IS UGLY... I mean... it has holes for a mouth and eyes

29 Phoebe - Wizadora

How the hell are characters like Elmo and Bert above this abomination? If you thought they were scary then you've lived a sheltered life. Just the look of this thing is enough to give you nightmares for the whole week.

Ugh. Just look it up and you'll see what I mean...

30 The Lich (Adventure Time) The Lich (Adventure Time) The Lich (formerly named the Lich King in the original pitch and "His Hero," and referred to as Sweet Pig Trunks in his baby form, or just Sweet P for short) is a powerful undead being and a major antagonist in the American animated series Adventure Time.



31 Worzel Gummidge - Worzel Gummidge

I think a lot of 80s kids shows are better than 90s kids shows in my opinion.

32 Him - The Powerpuff Girls

Yeah it's the devil but its not scary

How is he creepy? I don't get it.

33 Discord - My Little Pony Discord - My Little Pony Discord, also known as the Spirit of Disharmony, is a former-antagonist-turned-supporting-protagonist in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

He isn't scary he is a cartoon character and he is from the most stupidest show I've ever seen. Not scary

34 Clarence - Clarence Clarence - Clarence

He isn't scary. If you think he is, you have a phobia of kid friendly cartoons.

35 Yami Bakura - Yugioh Yami Bakura - Yugioh

I just don't like his voice or his faces. Yami Bakura really creeps me out.

36 That Creepy Phone - Telechat

For those of you who don't know (And I pray you do) what Telechat is, it's this French show about an ostrich puppet and a bunny puppet hosting a news show for kids. It's a good concept and all but the puppets they use look pretty creepy. The creepiest one being this house phone with a face slapped on the part you listen for what your caller is saying. The face alone looks creepy but the phone looks like a lab test gone wrong. Just imagine if you pick up the house phone. Instead of you hearing some guy talking to you, you hear a French voice saying what the cooler wants to say, and when you wonder why you see a face slapped on your phone. Now you get why this phone is creepy. Their's an even creepier microphone with a face slapped on it and a large ear on the left side of the microphone, but let's not talk about that anytime soon.

I pray no one knows about this show.

Telechat was already a pretty weird show, the puppetmaster wasn't too good at using the puppets, and this show wasn't very popular along French kids, but lets talk about some of the characters.. How about that phone? it looks normal until one of the characters picks it up and it has a terrifying face. I always thought shopkins were kinda creepy but this one is terrifying. It looks like Thomus The Tank Engine and a telephone had a baby - This character doesn't talk but instead it whispers, I wonder what its whispering about... For all we know, it could be talking about killing people... Am I taking this too far, or is this character creepy?

37 Angela Anaconda - Angela Anaconda

I don't think she's creepy.

38 King Ramses - Courage The Cowardly Dog
39 The Boohbahs - Boohbah

Fat, multi-coloured giant gumdrops just doesn't seem too kid friendly.. I guess it teaches kids not to do drugs or else the boohbahs will kill you during your sleep though

40 Fofao - The Island of Dr. Moreau

The scariest thing to come out of Brazil since 2 Girls 1 Cup.

Its like Chuck E Cheese with buttcheeks on its face

41 Wizbit - Wizbit

I don't think Wizbit is creepy, but the rabbit is terrifying

42 Ananas - Telefrancais
43 Hartley Hare - Pipkins

A lot of people think this character is creepy, I don't know why. I think he's cute and I like him.

44 Psalty - Psalty's Songs for Li'l Praisers

Psalty isn't all that creepy, but that dog is terrifying

45 Karbonkel - Ik Mik Loreland
46 That Creepy Microphone - Telechat
47 Yogi Oki Doki - Ei-Ei Yoga
48 Snook - It's a Big Big World
49 Angelica's Baby Brother - Rugrats
50 Dirtgirl - Dirtgirlworld
