Creepiest Children's TV Shows

The Top Ten

1 BooBah

This show should be #1. It's downright creepy in every sort of way. Who comes up with shows like this? 0_o 0_o 0_o scares the heck out of me. Their just a bunch of fat farting gumdrops.

I'd like to know what these people were on when they created this show

Boo bah what the hell that does mean

It's a dumbed down Teletubbies. All I can remember was watching one bit of an episode and all they did was say "Boohbah" over and over. Someone could make a list "Why Teletubbies is better than Boohbahs" It even lasted longer, got a reboot.

2 Teletubbies Teletubbies is a British pre-school children's television series created by Ragdoll Productions' Anne Wood CBE and Andrew Davenport, who wrote each of the show's 365 episodes. It is owned by Canadian Studio WildBrain, which is the largest independent Children's and Adolescent's Film Studio

You have to be timid to be scared of the Teletubbies, Boohbahs and In The Night Garden.

The creepiest part is when the baby sun is coming it's kinda like a baby being trapped in a yellow ball and forced to laugh every morning a little creepy

The Creepiest Part in Teletubbies is the Baby Sun.

Not creepy, the baby sun was cute her giggling. Its like the sun is smiling its not being trapped in a yellow ball.

3 Jigsaw

You can tell the guys wearing a mask though

Boohbahs were scary, but this is too scary... - BlueSheepYT

Boohbahs not scary just weird.
This was scary.

4 Peppermint Park Peppermint Park is an American direct-to-video children's show consisting of around six volumes, released in 1987 and 1988. The show had many similarities to Sesame Street, in that it was a mixture of live action, animation, and puppets. It is almost completely lost with only a few clips taken from more.

Catchy intro, cute puppets (in my opinion), and OhHhHhHHh. makes this show actually good

Move over, Teletubbies and Boohbah, this crazy excuse for a Sesame Street ripoff is a blatant insult to one-liners like nightmare fuel!

I searched it up. It is creepy. - MiraiNikkiYunoGasai

Good thing about it is carchy theme song bad are the creepy puppets

5 Jay Jay The Jet Plane

One day jay jay stabbed me to death and blood went all over. It was a good day

That sadistic show gives me nightmares! What on earth are those things? They're like half-humans and half-aircrafts that talks annoying! Whoever invented this show must be high on crack! Plus, it must be one of the planes that hits the twin towers during 9/11!

Looks like a bad scientist made people as big as a plane rip their face off and stick it on a plane and now the idiots are happy flying around not able to fit in a cave or go underwater or do Something extremely awesome

Scared me when I checked it on Google but it would be a very nice show for kids if the front could be normal with a mouth that u can't actually see when it's closed and eyes kinda unrealistic

6 Mr. Meaty Mr. Meaty is a Canadian-American television series created by Jamie Shannon and Jason Hopley. The show centers on two lazy teenage boys named Josh Redgrove and Parker Dinkleman, who work at a fast food restaurant.

This should be first.

8 In the Night Garden...

A black and white version would not be like what you saw.

I used to love this show before I even went to school,But now it's super creepy! This very less-known and deserves 1st,Sure,The Teletubbies are creepy but now they aren't for me since they have gotten older and I even got a nightmare about ITNG!

You must be timid to be scared.

Boohbah is creepy and all, but In The Night Garden takes the cake.
You know why?

Because In The Night Garden scared me when I was 7 years old and under. Whenever it came on T.V. I would cry, scream, and run away! I would hide behind furniture and not come out until the show ended. - Lunala

9 Courage the Cowardly Dog Courage the Cowardly Dog is an American animated horror comedy television series created by John R. Dilworth for Cartoon Network as part of the network's Cartoon Cartoons block.

This show still scares me so much... I still get nightmares from watching it.

I like this show, but some episodes creep me out... - Garythesnail

This show is good, but it is a little creepy...

This show was MEANT to be creepy, unlike BoohBah, which is a toddler's show. Use some logic.

The Contenders

11 Dirtgirlworld Dirtgirlworld, stylized as dirtgirlworld, is an Australian-Canadian children's television series created by Cate McQuillen and Hewey Eustace of Mememe Productions.

It's the animation and peoples faces merged with the cartoon aspects

I think I found Annoying Orange's owner...

Annoying Orange+Angela Anaconda+Dora the Explorer=This - 445956

The show has some good morals, the animation is kinda freaky though. - Lunala

12 Morso
13 Rupert The Bear

This cartoon screams, Satan is good, Satan is our pal, I will kill everyone

His eyes a

14 Pee-wee's Playhouse

And remember, the host made an anti drug commercial. I don't think he paid much attention to it...

This should be in the top ten. This show is creepy!

The only creepy thing about this show is that the host was caught masturbating in a porn theater.

My mom will respect your opinion.

15 Angela Anaconda Angela Anaconda is a Canadian–American children's television series created by Joanna Ferrone and Sue Rose, the latter of whom who also voices the title character.

A terrifying abomination of black and white skin with everything else in colour! It's so creepy I'm only comfortable looking at images of it I've seen before!

This show creeps me out, and it's plain dumb, WITH THE SAME DAMN PLOT OVER AND OVER AGAIN! The only thing Angela does in every episode is think up ways to beat the school bully. ( I forgot her name._. ) - IceFoxPlayz

The visuals of this show make me want to hurl!

This show is awful, boring and trippy. - Lunala

16 Yo Gabba Gabba Yo Gabba Gabba! is an American live action/puppet children's television show starring five costumed toys-come-to-life and their friend DJ Lance Rock.

Creeps like Barney and others should ended up in a meat grinder because whoever created this show must be a pedofile!

This show I used to like it. I never liked the green one because he WHINES OVER EVERYTHING! - Lunala

The show makes me think of voodoo magic and DJ Lance looks like a pedophile and a killer mixed. Plus his smile is creepy.

Barney+Sesame Street+The Wiggles=This - 445956

17 Ratafak Plachta

It's really creepy trust me, DO NOT LOOK IT UP. - myusernameisthis

That's not a show. It's a character off of a show called Slniecko.

Ratafak Palachta? More like Watafak is that? - IceBearRules

Is that supposed to be the Slenderman and Jeff The Killer’s sibling?!?!

18 Pipkins

Creepier than peppermint park. - MiraiNikkiYunoGasai

I hate this show its creepy and grossly animated - Lunala

20 Wizbit Wizbit is a 1980s BBC children's television show about an alien magician, Wizbit. It starred conjuror Paul Daniels and wife Debbie McGee.

The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity more.

Its got witch craft in this show, that's why its creepy, I found it bad to for kids and teens.

Most of the episodes are pretty creepy but that's what makes the show cool

Creepy because of the hidden secrets and stuff but oh well. It's my favorite show and that will never change. - Navylexi

I know that Gravity Falls is one of my favorite cartoons but yeah there were creepy episodes too

22 Terrahawks

The puppets look like they're cousins of the Labyrinth and Dark Crystal puppets! - SavageLG

Looks like a thunderbirds/star trek crossover when I googled it. But I don't know much about this show. - Lunala

23 Are You Afraid of the Dark? Are You Afraid of the Dark? is a Canadian horror fantasy-themed anthology television series that was on YTV.

Are You Afraid of the Dark? is meant to be creepy.

Why yes I am

24 Lalaloopsy Lalaloopsy is an American children's television series based on the Lalaloopsy dolls from MGA Entertainment.

This show sucks I have always hated it and I have seen someone else say that they thought this show reminded them of Coraline. But I have never seen Coraline (I think those of you who have seen it will think I'm lucky) - Lunala

Creepy stuffed creatures with button eyes... And to think toddlers actually watch that...

This show is way too sickly sweet to be creepy. - IceFoxPlayz

Those eyes should be censored - Feliciafurrypaws4ever

Seriously, in a world where there is Fofao, Ratafak Plachta and Mathias the House Elf, you vote for Barney the Dinosaur on a list of creepiest children's shows? - Alkadikce

Because Barney Is A Pedophile

That dinosaur is dumb. - andrewteel

Barneys smile is creepy - Lunala

26 Tweenies

No this show looked a bit like Playdays with the clock. Hey it was even made by the people who made Playdays. They even made nice songs. Tell me who would you watch more Bella from The Tweenies or Bella Swan.

Hey hey, are you ready to play! - Rocko

Googled this. Holy crap, they look like creepy Arthur characters in real life as puppets. - Lunala

I hate the tweenies so much.Their eyes look like the 60's olives and their "mouth" look more than dinosaurs.Thank you for cancelling this show otherwise my brother would go insane

27 Nanalan'

It isn't creepy, it's bizarre in a hilarious way

My favorite anime

28 The Animals of Farthing Wood The Animals of Farthing Wood is a children's animated series commissioned by the European Broadcasting Union between 1992 and 1995, and is based on the series of books written by English author Colin Dann.

Poor Mr. and Mrs pheasant.

I love this this show. The only creepy thing in the show was the wicked witch of the west episode. - andrewteel

This show was supposed to make learning FUN. But instead, it brought hours and hours of torture to 4 year olds who never wanted to go to school again. - Officialpen

It also leaves me with mixed emotions. It freaks me out. Especially the hairy dancing mammoth - Officialpen

33 Tomorrow's Pioneers

Are you serious? this? below MLP?

Yes, this is my most hated show ever. It’s all about huge costumed animals talking about terrorism, world supremacy, murder of the Jews, and racism. It’s even morbid at times, where all 5 costumed characters die.

34 Mulligrubs

What da fauk

A Claymation yetilike mollusk

How is SpongeBob above this messed up show? This show is so creepy, ugly, and disturbing! The fandom is even more worse. The characters are psychotic and over exaggerated. Get this above SpongeBob right now! And don't even get me started with the movies that are about one hour long!

I'm scared of watching this show, especially the bronies!

This is creepier than any shows on this list!

I'm a brony lol! Some people may find it creepy like Lalaloopsy (Again I like that show that got taken off the air unfortunately). - andrewteel
