    For some reason Tommy Cooper used to really scare me. Guy in a Fez making strange hand signals and talking incomprehensibly.

    Barney freaked the Sh1t outta me when I was a young fella! All those stories about him assaulting people and stuff really got to me!

    Di-di from Dexters Lab also scared me, She reminded me of a Crystal Meth addict from Dublin City centre!

    Quite a Harrowing Childhood!

    It took me years before I could watch that film all the way through. The Whirlygig Witch off Wanderly Wagon was another who scared the sh1te out of me. And there was some crap movie that was on once centuries ago called Winter of the Witch that frightened me for years after. And the faceless nun off that Armchair Thriller thing, Quiet as a Nun.

    So mostly old women that scared me then...you can tell I went to the nuns at an early age.

    "Children of the Stones" the whole series freaked me out.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,442 ✭✭✭Firetrap


    The Incredible Hulk freaked me out big time. The show was on the air when I was about six or seven and it not only scared the bejesus out of me but out of half my class in school as well. I watched an episode of it a few years ago and thought it was harmless stuff. :rolleyes:
