And we thought these films were supposed to be for kids...

Which of Disney moments do you find the most creepy looking back on it?

(Please note: Animated features only; No Pixar films.)

Normally I would say both of the scenes from Snow White and the creation of the Poison apple scene too would qualify. But I have to say, " What? No scenes from Disney's production of Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked Thus Way Comes"?" Doesn't this qualify as creepy and dark? (P.s. Will is the man's son and the kid with the football is the bartender who was once a high school football star who list his leg and who kept dreaming of the good old days when he was young and the carnival gave him his wish but at the price of losing his freedom and manhood.)

Or this at the library: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=R8zf3Mf...
Or the spider scene: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6RWb9nR...
Or ride on the merry-go-round that is anything but 'Merry'
Oh wait, you can't because it is not animated and only animated films qualify. Oh well, too bad a!

You are welcome. Just don't ride the merry-go-round or see the fortune-teller to have your fortune read because she is really Lady Death.

i remember watching 'the wonderful world of disney' every sunday night, and every once in a while they would show 'the headless horseman' from 'the adventures of ichabod and mr. toad...it was my favorite piece and so brilliant, dark, and terrifying, and wonderful when i was a kid...(the dark and terrifying is always the coolest at the same time)...

and it's the memory i think of most when i think of disney...

That's awesome Rocky! Yeah I remember watching that when I was a kid and shuttering at the mere idea of a 'headless horsemen'. And I always felt that the Black Cauldron was severely underrated for its time - I mean, could you imagine if Walt Disney invested even half as much of his attention on horror films as he did on family ones? It'd be interesting to see what'd he conjure up...

Actually, do some studying on the making of "Pinnocchio". Disney was accused of trying to scare kids in that one and Mrs. Dumbo's rampage too. To the charge that he was trying to scare kids in Pinocchio he replied that he cleaned up the book.
Speaking of Pinocchio, the two scenes with Monstro the whale.

Love this! I'd say the way Gaston pursues Belle is the most terrifying because it's the closest to reality.

p.s. The majority of the scene descriptions aren't sentences, so I would remove the initial capitalization and period at the end.

Great choice! He is a huge creep...

Thanks for the capitalization technique though when I write anything, I usually capitalize the first word regardless (maybe I'm wrong) but perhaps I will rectify it.
