Most Disturbing Cartoon Episodes


The Contenders: Page 2

21 World Wild Recorder Concert - South Park

Disturbing for the fact that Mr. Garrison is upset that his father never molested him just watch the episode and see. - egnomac

22 1600 Candles - American Dad
23 Who Let the Cats Out of the Old Bag's House? - The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack

The Cat scared me a lot

24 Wormy - SpongeBob SquarePants

It's not disturbing except the close up I guess but only a little bit. - PatrickStar3

This should be WAAYY higher on the list, or at least the highest SpongeBob episode on the list! - puncity

The only real horror in this is the horsefly closeups we get of a young wormy

25 The Great Fusilli - Courage the Cowardly Dog

The ending made me unable to sleep for a whole week

Disturbing oh my god Muriel and Eustis were Puppets. - PatrickStar3

26 Heavenly Puss - Tom And Jerry

A lesson for the future if it wants too Tom and Jerry can get really cruel while it is mostly funny it is no stranger to some disturbing content however to me Heavenly Puss is the most Dark And Disturbing episode of the show for me not only does it have a really disturbing plot where Tom gets killed by a Piano and Jerry has to forgive everything to get Tom in heaven if not he gets sent straight to hell. If that's one of the darkest things you've ever seen I would agree with you. And so would Matt Groening the man behind The Simpsons and Futurama! They even showed many ways that cats have died including 3 kittens drowned in a bag. The only reason this isn't the darkest thing I've ever seen is because it's all a dream but even then it'll still enter my nightmares even to this day - nerffan8000

The scene when Tom sees the devil dog on the T.V. was so scary to me when I was little, the bulldog with his evil laugh and his presence made me shudder, and then scene with the kittens in the sack was so sad, like the cat angel said "what some people won't do." The part when Tom goes to Hell and the devil dog is sticking him with the pitchfork scared me the most.

Sore eyes dexter's laboratory far worse than this

27 LGBSteve - American Dad
28 Soos and the Real Girl - Gravity Falls

Basically he has a modern life, being in love with a computer program - Snackfan

Best episode ever!

CRAP - Snackfan

29 Quagmire's Dad - Family Guy
30 Camera Shy - Rocko's Modern Life

In my opinion, this was almost a bit more disturbing than Leap Frogs. - xandermartin98

I can't believe Nickelodeon even let this episode air.

The first time I saw this episode, I went to Manayunk to spend the day and night over there in a dormhouse with my friends on a school field trip. At the dormhouse, I drank a whole bunch of espresso (which was ironically a drink that was featured at one point in the episode).
That fateful night, one of the reasons why I found myself completely unable to sleep was actually due to my confusion over the fact that the creators of this show managed to get such an amazingly literal reference to "Nude Descending A Staircase" past the radar. - xandermartin98

31 One Coarse Meal - SpongeBob SquarePants

One Coarse Meal.

Mr. Krabs torments Plankton with a whale suit.
Worst part of the episode, is when Plankton attempts suicide (Yes. SUICIDE) before SpongeBob talks him out of it. - ndnprct3

32 1 Night In Gottlieb - Allen Gregory

Why?... Why does this exist?...

Is one of the worst things...
I have ever seen... - ndnprct3

33 Speed Demon - The Powerpuff Girls

An alternate future where the world has gone to Hell because Him has taken over, and the citizens have turned into chanting zombies, or something...

34 Tickle Me Mandy - The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy

What about the one when Mandy and Grim dress up as clowns? - Discord

Gee this one is creepy

35 Blue Cat Blues - Tom and Jerry

This episode was disturbing because Tom was driven to suicide because the female cat wasn't in love with him and only loved Butch because she was a gold digger and Tom got so depressed that he wanted to end his life, and so did Jerry at the end when his girlfriend dumped him for a richer mouse.

36 The House of Discontent - Courage the Cowardly Dog

That floating head was so scary!

37 Bloom and Gloom - My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

This episode is really underrated for how screwed-up it is, because of Apple Bloom's dreams. In her first dream, you see Sweet Apple Acres get destroyed. In the second dream, you see Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo kick Apple Bloom out of the Cutie Mark Crusaders club (It may not seem disturbing at first, but for longtime fans of the series like me, the out-of character behavior of both of them rejecting Apple Bloom so quickly can really rub you the wrong way). And in the third dream, you see Applejack, Big Macintosh, and Granny Smith KICKING APPLE BLOOM OUT OF THEIR FAMILY AND DESTROYING ANY EVIDENCE THAT SHE WAS EVER IN IT!

If I had a dream like that, I would be depressed for weeks.

Let's get Freaky Fred make him shave all of the Cutie Mark Crusaders hair(except for Applebloom) for rejecting her and APPLEJACK AND GRANNY FOR KICKIN HER OUT OF the FAMILY...Naaughy

38 The Return of Raggedy Android - My Life as a Teenage Robot
39 Plankton Got Served - SpongeBob V 1 Comment
40 Unbarfable - Sanjay and Craig

This show in general is one to stay away from as it pretty much only involves butt jokes, barf jokes, fart jokes, toilet humor, and bad voice acting. This show is definitely something to stay away from
