Top 10 Scariest Baby Einstein Episodes

Baby Einstein, more like scary Einstein. This show is as weird and creepy as the pink elephants from Dumbo. So I have made a top 10 list. May I present to you, Top 10 scariest baby Einstein episodes.

The Top Ten

1 Baby Bach

Am I the only person here who was never scared by the chickens? Seriously, they're not scary. They're unsettling if you're all alone and one of them is with you in the room, but they aren't scary. As for Zylon the Dragon, sure, he was scary, but I didn't start crying or crap myself due to being startled. As for those clowns, God, those scared me when I first saw it (And the next 12 times after it). But then their's that Sunflower. Good god! It looks like a Sunflower from Plants Vs. Zombies went to a plastic surgery place and asked the docter to make it look as creepy as possible.

Baby bach is the only "horror movie" I'm allowed to watch.

This one is creepy, but not as much as Baby Beethoven. I had no problems with the chickens. Zylon the Dragon's pop up startled me the first few times I saw it. I think the clown faces that pop up at parts of the episode look kind of creepy, but not that much. But the scariest part was that creepy sunflower!

I think the scary thing is the chicken the clowns and the robots - bluescluesandbabyeinsteinfan

2 Baby Van Gogh

So dumb it's scary the mouse puppet scared the living crap out of me even more scary if he ate the moon in that one it was terrible it was the return of the dead puppets first baby van Gogh with the paint on his face looked like blood and the moose pop up scared the crap out of my younger brother

Oh my god when I was 2 the cacti in the beginning literally scared me. My mom would put the disc on the DVD player in the car and when the cacti came on, I was screaming and crying. I literally had nightmares of those cacti and I still do!

The creepy parts were the begging where there were animatronic dancing cacti. It probably scares a lot of people. So, moving on. After the opening titles, we join Vincent where he is stalking you. And he has paint all over himself which makes him look possessed. - michaelthecritic

The goat creeps me out. STILL TO THIS DAY X(

3 Baby Santa's Music Box

This is where Language Nursery should be.

The cone puppet does creep me out, but I liked the moose puppet (at the beginning) when I was little, and I thought that it was cute. Though the white reindeer scared me, but only for the first few times I watched it.

Language Nursery on the other hand is SO QUIET, it makes you feel like someone's going to jump out and kill you. It also has creepy dolls, and creepy toys in general. It gives me chills every time I watch it.

Baby Santa's Music Box should be swapping places wig Language Nursery in my opinion, and the reasons above state why.

In the beginning there is a moose pop-up, but its not as scary as the rest of the pop-ups on this list. That's not even the true reason why this is on the list. OH NO, ITS COMING BACK! The penguin cone puppet, like with the giraffe cone puppet, looks possessed. Don't even get me started on the cookie decorating puppet show. - michaelthecritic

I have to say, the penguin cone puppet actually is pretty scary. It is somehow doing a dance which seems like it could be in a creepy pasta. It kind of scares everybody. I also didn't like the white reindeer pop-up.

Bard does love his rocking horse😆

4 Baby Mozart

I'm kinda surprised this isn't higher on the list, because man, Bard scared the crap out of me when I was little. Actually, I had a weird love/hate feeling about it, because while I loved the Bard puppet himself (he was my favorite next to Vincent), that one part always spooked my 3-year-old self. I think it was the black, featureless void of a background that did it, haha.

Uh, how is this not up higher?! This episode is creepy! Bard gave me nightmares up until 4th grade, I always got scared by that falling caterpillar, and the pecking rooster... oh, no, I hope that dies. The dolls weren't that bad, but I haven't seen the Creepypasta but I bet that it's bad.

The only part that scare me was when they did the close ups of the doll faces. I remember when I first watched Baby Mozart and that part showed up, I started crying. And the Creepypasta made that scene worse for me.

Bard is such a cutie

There is this video on you tube called Baby Einstein scares my kid! The video was at the beginning where the puppets were doing some kind of dance that would normally be on a creepy pasta. The baby even cussed. She said the S word. Anyways, the scariest part of this episode is the giraffe cone puppet. It looks possessed. - michaelthecritic

One night, I was 3 years old and I slept in a haunted room without knowing and when my dad shut the lights off, I saw the giraffe cone puppet on my T.V. when the T.V. WAS OFF! I have been suffering with nightmares for 6 years. I am 10 and I am still scared of it.

This episode scared me a lot when I was 3, The monkey swinging at the beginning, That giraffe really scared me, This episode Just gave me nightmares!

When I was little, the giraffe Cone puppet scared me, it looked haunted by something. - PBSDoink2002

6 Baby Shakespeare

Baby Shakespeare is one of my favorites, but it's creepy. I used to be scared of the red gear with the spinning eyes, the sparkling after the leaf poem, the puppet show with Jane in the snow, and the part with the gorilla and cymbal monkey - NostalgiaMonkey

What used to scare me was the transportation scene because Beethoven Turkish march is a really creepy song, but now it is the stupid clown camera with the freaky music before every poem. Great episode, but creepy

The flower in the old version is the same one in baby Bach because before it switches on in baby Bach you can see its face slightly and in baby Shakespeare it's there to

I didn't find the Turkish March Music Video creepy when I was little. - PBSDoink2002

7 Baby Neptune

THIS IS A SUPER, ULTRA, MEGA, HYPER SCARY EPISODE. In the beginning, there is this scary gold fish pop-up. It was so scary that my dad had to fast forward the pop-up. It even gave me nightmares. I still rarely have them. There are some other scary pop-ups. Like I think there was a submarine pop-up. After the credits, there was a crab pop-up. I am never going to watch this episode again. But thank goodness in Neptune's Oceans, they cut out the scary pop-ups and replaced them with bubbles. - michaelthecritic

How is this scary? Like I watched this when I was 3 or 4 years old and it was not scary at all. The goldfish pop up part didn't scare me at all.

How is this one scary? The goldfish pop up wasn't scary at all, but I understand why people hate it. But still, how is this one #1? This were Baby Beethoven should be.

Before the main menu screen of Baby Neptune I was scared of the FBI Warning when it said This DVD is for private home viewing. That used to scare me when I was little. - PBSDoink2002

8 Baby Beethoven

Scariest one by far! The pop ups are so creepy. I don't find the saxophone part creepy, but I understand why people find it scary. The part where all the baby photos show up is kinda weird. I found the Owls kind of creepy, but not that much. But the scariest part for me was the puppets. They creeped me out so much! In fact, I used to have constant nightmares about them busting into me room and kidnap me! In fact, the first time I had one of those dreams, I started crying for my parents! It's best one, but also the creepiest.

Am I the only one who wasn't scared of the owls? The spider pop up (Both the pop up after the Fur Elise Music Video and the pop up after the 9th Symphony Music Video) scared me as well, I got nightmares where it was behind me and grabbed me! I find this one the scariest so far! The puppets at the beginning also scared me! It feels like they are stalking me or something! My parents either turned off the T.V., took out the disc, or took me out of the room every time if they hear me cry! - PBSDoink2002

I got a couple nightmares out of this one. Why because of the spider pop-up and the animal parade. - michaelthecritic

The part when Pavlov jump scared me was scary

One of the most boring episodes of the series. And why the HECK is this episode on the scariest baby Einstein list?! There's barely nothing scary in this one. Like, the dolls are creepy, but it's not like they're gonna give us nightmares will they?

The only reason I find it scary is that it's too quiet. It makes you think you're watching something a serial killer made.

I well is cow pop up

It’s not scary. It’s so boring that you fall asleep in the middle of the show.

10 Baby Galileo

When the baby kangaroo is in his mommy's pouch the baby kangaroo looks kind of possessed.

The UFO Disco Light is really REALLY creepy when it appears in Girl Meets Gravity and going up & down

The Kangaroos were kind of creepy, also beethoven the creepy giraffe puppet is seen in this one.

Baby Galileo is pretty creepy - NostalgiaMonkey

The Contenders

11 Baby MacDonald

This should swap places with neighborhood animals. Why? Well, it's good episode! It's got cute (and disturbing) videos of cute animals and kids having harvest fun!

I woke up once hearing a cockadoodledoo sound. I couldn't go back to sleep.

Why should this be 7? It's a good episode!

12 Baby Da Vinci

One of those wind up walking human body parts were creepy like the walking ear and the walking nose. (killers! )

The 2nd drawing music was the creepy triangle instrument along with the vibraphone, acoustic guitar and bassoon. (nightmares! )

Oh god I was afraid of the boy in ears and the ballerina in feet (super creepy)

This video is scary because of the feet part. Michael doesn't like it. - NostalgiaMonkey

One time when I was little, the walking duck gave me a nightmare where it was waddling around my room.

1 Thing that is creepy about this episode is the flying cow. It looks freaky. - michaelthecritic

That waddling duck freaked me out. Other than that, it's a good episode.

The dog licking the screen is horrifying. Jesus Christ

14 Baby Monet

The plot is just odd in this one. It's just these zebras painting themselves season colors. It's pointless!

Those Zebras kind of look possessed.

15 My First Signs

The otter and the duck having fun.

I like it

16 Baby Noah

This baby einstein is scary. I do not know why this is not even on the list. The flamingo puppet looks possessed. I am a 10 year old girl posting this and I am scared of this baby einstein. This baby einstein is full of scary sound track. Especially on the sea horse and the kangaroo. Oh, don't you dare get me started on the end parts of them. They givr me nightmares. I have nightmares about the flamingo puppet, the sea horse sound trackm and the kangaroo sound track. I decided to put this baby einstein on the list, because this baby einstein is scary and I am suprised this is not on the list. That is why I think Baby Noah should be on this top scary baby einstein list.

The Ark Was Really Terrifying & The Kangaroo Close Up

17 Wild Animal Safari

This episode is similar to world animals. it came out in 2010 and had the same scenes from world animals.

18 Baby Ellington

This episode doesn't exist.

Why is this on the list? It's not a real episode. Take it off, please. - Tyabcd

I made a mistake on the spelling on the comment underneath

When will Bard learn to stop scaring babies?!

Bard The Green Dragon Sneaking At Jane


24 Numbers Nursery

There's a video on YouTube called "flower murder". Where a young baby is watching this on her computer and horse and the flower scene come on. Then, when the horse ate it, the baby threw a HUGE meltdown! Her parents couldn't seem to calm her down! Anyway, the creepy scenes are the flip-flop mouthed people. (They look creepy and possessed! )

This one is creepy. During the part when the animals stick their tongues out, it makes Bard look genius. Also, the giraffe covered spots makes it look like it has grouchy eyebrows. Like, Lizzy (the tiger puppet) is actually pretty cute, but a little creepy in the same time. Nothing really scares me in this episode, exacpt for the train. It's so ANNOYING!

The flower and horse puppet show is so! Creepy.

25 Baby's First Sounds

This one is scary. There's this dancing chick puppet (it's eyes look poseced) and the sheep in the box returns. (Both of those toys where seen in baby macdonald.

The return of the sheep in the box. Dun dun DUUUN!

26 On the Go

The horse opening scene is a little creepy

So manly that it's scary - NostalgiaMonkey

I agree

27 Baby Vivaldi
28 Baby Columbus

A 2067 future video

This video is scary since Columbus because he raped and killed Native Americans. - NostalgiaMonkey

29 Baby Newton

The crayons look sort of creepy. I remember when I was younger (2-3 years old) that clown guy scared me a bit. But the episode over all is pretty good.

The White Screen Of Death Before The Square Puppet Show Gave Me Nightmares

The White Screen When The Blue Crayon Yells Like Tarzan was so Scary

A screaming crayon, it's not scary to me. - PBSDoink2002
