Top 10 Scariest Episodes from Children's Cartoons

The Top Ten
1 The Great Fusilli (Courage the Cowardly Dog)

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

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

2 Squid's Visit (SpongeBob SquarePants)

Spongebob's gone psycho! 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.

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

No, it's bad, it's almost one of the worst SpongeBob episodes I've ever seen.

3 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.

I deserve a comment on this episode, Really scary!

I had nightmares with this guy..

4 King Ramses' Curse (Courage the Cowardly Dog)

Who wants a Courage the Cowardly Dog GCI Woodie based on King Ramses cursing you?

The train is a truck like Mystic Timbers at Kings Island.

The layout is almost identical to Invadr at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

Should go to IMG Worlds of Adventure in the Cartoon Network are.

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

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.

Basically, it shows Twilight going insane, where she became a meme in the Brony community. Plus, she also went insane because there weren't any friendship problems, so when she was insane, she decided to make one using her plushie/doll.

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

6 Perfect (Courage the Cowardly Dog)

This is a sweet episode because of its great message of you don't have to always be perfect, but what is unsweet and bittersweet is the "You're not perfect" scene. Basically, after Courage is constantly berated by this RANCID woman who's his teacher, he has a bad dream sequence where a blue fetus-like creature utters out the words "You're not perfect." You can guess what happens after the sequence because the last thing you'll hear is Courage's scream when he wakes up because you're too terrified to hear the rest or watch on.

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.

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 is the first season 6 episode from the TV series “Spongebob Squarepants”. In this episode, Squidward tries to make his house fancy so he could beat his rival at making a fancy house and Spongebob comes along to help... read more

The infamous toenail scene from House Fancy is truly disgusting and disturbing. Basically, when Squidward has his leg on a sofa leg, he moved it, which ends up ripping his toenail, and he winces in pain. YouTube gave this a bloody adaptation to make it more infamous than it already was.

Seriously? I mean the toenail scene was bit much for spongebob and it's infamous, but the rest of the episode is completely fine!

That looks more like a bone than a toe nail.

9 Graveyard Shift (SpongeBob SquarePants)

The ending was scary back then, but hilarious now.

10 Windmill Vandals (Courage the Cowardly Dog)
The Contenders
11 Ren Seeks Help (Ren & Stimpy)

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

Definitely disturbing and gross.

12 Dark Harvest (Invader Zim)

"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*

Very creepy and should be higher. I mean come on, an alien stealing kids organs, that not a kids cartoon, that a horror sci-fi movie!

13 Nightmares and Daydreams (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
14 A Pal for Gary (SpongeBob SquarePants)
15 Halloween (Amazing World of Gumball)

The horrors of this episode. Scariest episode ever made! This episode is terrifying. There's no easy way to beat around the bush here. This episode is the scariest thing ever created and by golly, just talking about it right now gives me the shivers. It stands the reason as to why so many kids grew up broken and depressed. The trauma and disgusting horrors found within this Blair Witch inspiration is just too creepy to think about. I'm sorry, it's just really hard. I can't go back. Oh god, don't make me go back. This truly is the scariest episode of all time and I'm glad it spawned three horrific sequels. Oh no.

16 Sore Eyes (Dexter’s Laboratory)
17 The Splinter (Spongebob Squarepants)
18 Boating Buddies (SpongeBob SquarePants)
19 The Puppetmaster (Avatar: The Last Airbender)

I was unfortunate to see this episode as a kid watching the entire show on Netflix kids. I stumbled across the episode I've heard of for so long. It's this old woman in that fire district teaching Aang, Sokka, and Katara how to do bloodbending, which is bending one's water and veins inside their own body. And guess what, Katara uses this technique to bloodbend a guard to open her prison cell for her. Even the guard who was bloodbended was concerned and scared of the force bloodbending has on people like them. Then in the somewhat end of the episode(?), the old lady gets arrested.

20 One Coarse Meal (SpongeBob SquarePants)

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

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

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

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

A character actually died in this episode!

22 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.

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

If you know, you know. Plus, the episode was banned due to complaints of the walrus scaring children terribly. But do you know what wasn't banned or pulled? The same episode, but on DVD!

It was banned because of the creepy walrus.

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

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