    It was also scary when he fell over at the end of the credits.

    Did you notice how sometimes he fell forwards and sometimes he fell backwards? I found Mr Crowman a bit scary too.

    That's cute that that would be scary, I remember the scene of him having a spare head in a bucket, but it's good to have a bit of scary. That nose of his was terrifying enough! The only thing I remember on tv that genuinely lead to disturbed dreams was an old Outer Limits show with insects with criminals faces! Oh, and also a Lost In Space where two robots fought, but a lot less disturbing. We only had a b&w telly up to 1975ish and I didn't know I was watching a lot of old shows. I saw Space 1999 in colour after watching it in b&w so long and some of the spaghetti bolognese type monsters I'd laughed at in b&w were scarier, so I suppose I'm lucky I only saw those weird bugs with human faces in b&w!

    I may pitch this as a film storyline to the same people who made the Sharknado films!

    Sometime back I posted about how I found the General Electric logo scary. During the holiday season the Rankin Bass Christmas specials were also a bit scary to me, perhaps because they were sponsored by GE, so there was that association. The following is the perfect storm of stupid scary! It also shows the NBC intro from the '60s and '70s which I also thought was a little creepy. I seem to recall that they used this intro every year well into the early 1970s.

    I was only a little scared by the Abominable Snowman in the Rudolph Reindeer special, until he got that bad tooth yanked!

    I couldn't watch the Marx brothers at all at one time because I thought Harpo was genuinely insane and it scared me. Turns out he was one of the nicest people in real life.

    For obvious reasons, I almost read that as the "General Election" logo!

    Did anyone else actually find a company's logo scary in the past?
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    I was ( still am) always ‘respectful’ of the Police when I was a little lad in the sixties ...

    When a police car is parked on the street, you think either someone is a victim or someone has committed a crime, and the fact that they are not there for nothing.

    I’ve always liked and respected the police and it irks me when I hear someone slagging them off because when something goes wrong they’re the first people asking the police for assistance
