12 Episode 847 Wicked Witch of the West

I looked this up on the internet and I thought it was creepy like when the wicked witch said if the broom wasn't returned she would threatened to turn David into a basketball and turn Big Bird into a feather duster. Back in 1976, many parents said that this episode was scaring their kids. - andrewteel

For those who don't know, in this episode the Wicked Witch becomes stranded in Sesame Street as they landed there on a broomstick that goes missing. The witch, assuming someone stole it, goes around Sesame Street threatening to do some rather awful things to people there if it isn't given back. It scared so many kids that it only aired once. - Rocko

13 The Crack Master

It was in fact used. I believe it was aired just a few times before being retired for being too scary, but I saw it in the 70s before stumbling across it again on the internet 40 years later.

not scary

An unused clip from Sesame Street that was found. It supposedly went unused for being too frightening for kids. Just look it up and you'll see what I mean. - Rocko

14 Killer Big Bird Toodle Loo

This should be NUMBER 1

Should go right to the top of the line!
It scares people

This should be number 1

15 Placido Peligro

That flamingo is scary. I'm glad that they removed him from the show.

16 The Lost Boy
17 Oscar's Elephant

He is disturbing. His name is Fluffy search fluffy Sesame Street and yet he could be creepy.I think his trunk is only there because his head is big but creepy.

18 Kermit's B Lecture

Kermit is demonstrating about the sound of B but then Beautiful day monster comes and he does his version of the B sound by blowing Kermit away then he does it again
and the screen goes black.

19 Big Bird Thinks Julia Hates Him
20 The Old Newlyweds
21 The 39 Stairs
22 40 Dots

A short "educational interlude" teaching kids to count to 40, that has a narrator singing the numbers in a creepy manner, and it gets progressively more and more disturbing as it goes on, the narrator is literally screaming at the end. - Rocko
