Scariest Childrens Cartoons Episodes


The Top Ten

1 The Great Fusilli (Courage the Cowardly Dog)

Yeah that was terrifying, that is why I don't watch courage the cowardly dog.

Doggy playing with dead corpses as if their alive again and went insane. - Bio

2 Squid's Visit (SpongeBob SquarePants)

No, this is a bad episode.

Lots of Psychological implications. What makes this scarier than The Great Fusili is that Squidward would have gone insane. - Bio

Spongebob's gone phsyco! Not only that he copied Squidward's house, he also stole his vacuum cleaner to get him to visit. Who would go visit someone who annoys him every day. Spongebob even made Squidward crazy. Squidward should of called the cops.

This has 1.stalkers 2. Weird scary close ups 3. Psycological stuff (like squidward going out with the casserole)

3 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.

You may see a trend of implications and insanity for this point forward. Yeah there are themes here if I ever saw them. - Bio

I deserve a comment on this episode, Really scary!

I had nightmares with this guy..

IT Traumatized Me AS A Child.

4 King Ramses' Curse (Courage the Cowardly Dog)

King Ramses was the scariest villain in my opinion

King ramses' curse should be number 1

Return the slab... or suffer my CURSE! God that was freaky - Pastakirby7

I can't stand this Ghost! His appearance is so creepy and he is VERY ANNOYING when he talks!

5 Lesson Zero (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic)

It's were twilight goes crazy trying to find a friendship problem

I never watched MLP but I have seen reviews of the show and this insanity gives freaky Fred a run for his money. What she says to the kid ponies is horrifying. - Bio

6 Perfect (Courage the Cowardly Dog)

You thought cgi babies are creepy? What about a blue cgi fetus? - Bio

KILL IT! This episode is just creepy I just wanna kill that little blue fetus

I had nightmares after watching this.

That's not a fetus that's a broken trumpet. but all the same this is a very scary and morbidly interesting episode, and it also has a good message of how it's ok to not be perfect in everything, but to be yourself.

7 Speed Demon (Powerpuff Girls)

I get why this freaks so many people out through implications but there are ways out of this fate. Like doing something to him. Also it makes no sense why people just start being haters to the powepuff girls. They left, they could have been through something weird that made them leave, they know it can happen. And "I only took over" is an understatement, blame him. - Bio

It scared me when I was a kid. A little kid. Now Craig McCracken Transferred from Cartoon Network To Disney to make our Wander Over Yonder. And before the PPG, He created Dexter's Laboratory.

8 House Fancy (SpongeBob SquarePants) House Fancy (SpongeBob SquarePants)

That part with the toenail was gross - blackflower

That looks more like a bone than a toe nail. - Bio

Really guys man up!

9 Windmill Vandals (Courage the Cowardly Dog)

Wow, ampt up the animation department didn't they? - Bio

10 Graveyard Shift (SpongeBob SquarePants)

Scared me as a kid - blackflower

The ending was scary back then, but hilarious now. - Bio

"'s, it's the Bash Swinging...the Crash Singing..."

When I was a kid the Hash Slinging Slasher scared me above all else. Even after I learned he wasn't real at the end of the episode, he still scared me.

The Contenders

11 Dark Harvest (Invader Zim)

This made me feel very uncomfortable...and I LOVE IT

What were they thinking?

"Say, you're full of organs, aren't you? " "Why, yes. Yes I am." "And you wouldn't notice if you were... Say, missing a few? " "Probably not." *extremely creepy maniacal laughter*

12 Nightmares and Daydreams (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
13 One Coarse Meal (SpongeBob SquarePants)

Needs to be taken off the air. It’s innapropriate - blackflower

Man, I hate this episode. How about we squish Mr. Krabs and flush him down the toilet? - Goatworlds

This episode makes me want to eat at red lobsters and wipe off the whale population

14 Boating Buddies (SpongeBob SquarePants)
15 Halloween (Amazing World of Gumball)

@Vote cast - No, I do not added it for a reason about this episode that should be obvious once you do research into that guy.

This episode is pretty scary actually.

Gumball's ghost design can give one a seizure thanks to the overuse of the bright colors.

Yes, I know this is a good episode, but it’s definitely scary and unwatchable for younger children, it will give you nightmares. This got to be one of the examples of nightmare fuel in western animation.

I would say "The Procrastinators" is scarier, just because of that one scene with the clown watching them.

16 Stare Master (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic)

A character actually died in this episode!

Um... No one died in this episodes and it wasn't even that creepy. I don't know what you people are even taking about.

Lauren Faust Can't just show creepy staring on the Kids' T.V screen. But what character died though?

17 Courage In The Big Stinkin' City (Courage the Cowardly Dog)

Honestly, that one notorious moment with the girl playing the viola that turns around with the messed up face... no. Imagine going into your bedroom or something after watching this and she's there - facing away from you - and you know what's going to happen.

18 Leap Frogs (Rocko's Modern Life)

I didn't find this Episode scary

19 The Puppetmaster (Avatar: The Last Airbender)

So terrifying, a scary campfire story sets the mood and wets your appetite, making the rest of the episode a roller coaster of nonstop frights.

20 Party of One (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic)

I'm gonna watch Courage than this episode. Jeez. This episode needs religion.

This should be higher!

Frick cup cakes

21 Weirdmageddon (Gravity Falls)

It surprises me that the Gravity Falls episodes are so far down the list. Weirdmaggeddon was amazing, but also pretty scary considering it was given the same age rating as things like Jessie and Phineas & Ferb. That twisted face still haunts my nightmares...

22 The Ancient Puzzle Of Pokemopolis (Pokemon)

Is not that scary

This was good - Goatworlds

23 Midget Robin Coming Out Of Robin's right eye (Teen Titans Go)

I don't remember what this episode was called, but yeah, it was creepy!

This is episodes not moments. - Goatworlds

24 Web Weirdos (Adventure Time)
25 Pingu's Dream (Pingu)

It was banned because of the creepy walrus.

Wait... this was the episode with the walrus wasn't it...

26 The Splinter (Spongebob Squarepants)

Disgusting - blackflower

27 Ello Gov'nor (Regular Show)

This episode actually scared me

28 Terror Tales of the Park (Regular Show)

One part was scary but the rest NO.

29 Summerween (Gravity Falls)
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.

Surprised no Adventure Time episodes are on this list yet.

31 Dream Machine (Dexter's Laboratory)
32 Black Hole (Ren & Stimpy)
33 Berry Scary (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends)

The title says it all, It is scary.

34 Cat Fingers (Steven Universe)

This episode is terrifying steven became a deformed cat monster and that music oh my god

It scared me to death!

35 Ren Seeks Help (Ren & Stimpy)

This is from the adult party cartoon. Which was NOT intended for kids!

Definitely disturbing and gross.

36 Ghost Bride (Hey Arnold)
37 The Mask (Teen Titans Go!)
38 Cootie Gras (The Powerpuff Girls)
39 Duncan Gets Spooked (Thomas & Friends)

This and "The Sad Story Of Henry" are absolutely terrifying! I'm surprised if was able to air.

40 Enough is Enough (The Loud House)

That is a lost episode but my friend sentence saw it and Lincoln make creepy face

41 Stimpy's Fan Club (Ren & Stimpy)
42 The Clockman/Sally’s Gloves (Pinwheel, 1984)

"But the wizard... did not forget." - Rocko
