The titles are terrifying!
with voices even more odd than the “human” puppets, which is saying something.
Anyone remember a programme from late 80's (possibly) filmed in Mossley, Ashton under Lyne...thinking its set in a hostel or similar...? While many of the episodes were as cheesy as can be, there were a few episodes that may have been a little too disturbing for its young fanbase. #bestofbadtv pic.twitter.com/3pPHiFTvKP. Who is the voice? and yea WHERE WERE THE PARENTS??? We rely on advertising to help fund our award-winning journalism. A horrifying long-nosed demon, of course! Bibleman is the ultimate bible bashing superhero. Lifeless rolling eyes, rigid plastic bodies with cloth human hands, and voices that sound like they were recorded in an insane asylum all culminate in a perfect storm of childhood trauma. Some guy putting his grubby hands all over a bunch of kids in leotards… oh hey, lets make a kids show of it!! All of us have those shows from our past that we loved unconditionally as kids and still carry with us into adulthood nostalgia. It was scary and exciting. And the whole show is just so keyed up that my head aches.
It was repeated at least once, but unlike the 'Tomorrow People', seems to have slipped into obscurity. Well, it damn well should be! The main character Stephanie is human and arrives in LazyTown to live with her uncle who’s a puppet.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qp_EfCLFO4A. It's almost heartwarming to know that media has influenced people in some special, positive way as children. Who knew twenty four seconds of nonsense could be so utterly disturbing? His friend Owlma, a talking mechanical owl alerted him when the plant was ready. Very few people remember this BBC production from the late 1980s. I loved Palace Hill (and of course Your Mother Wouldn't Like It!).
New, in box, Terrahawk action figures now go for around $350 each! The last episode especially, I didn't expect it to be so creepy! Well, Pipkins did just that which led to a rich cast of misfit puppets with regional accents that no one wanted to love.
If you were disturbed by the pool monster in Are You Afraid Of The Dark or low-key traumatized by Noseybonk's oddly phallic garden from Jigsaw, then this is definitely the list for you.
I have no doubt as to the mental and physical benefits of yoga, but EI EI Yoga was just beyond the pale- WOW!!! No, it’s a 35-year-old virgin in a plastic costume.
Strap in and I’ll take you on a ride through some of the creepiest and most bizarre television shows ever created for children, a ride you may never recover from.
Hi all. The '80s PBS classic series Slim Goodbody was clearly a well-meaning attempt to teach kids how to stay healthy. Check out these 15 Creepy Kids' TV Shows You Probably Don't Remember. And Servalan too. They know it’s time to sleep when the roof of the gazebo in the center of the garden begins to spin.
was a little less cheesy than Goosebumps (read: a little less) and seemed to be intended for a slightly older audience, though a majority of the episodes had feel-good happy endings.
That was some scary stuff, as a Christian Scientist I don’t know if i should be laughing or crying. I came looking for a tv drama called "follow me" which was about a teen girl who possessed some knowledge that sinister forces were after. Stine. And yes he still has his puppets.
Sort of like the Sleestaks from the 1974 television show Land of the Lost.
Did you ever find yourself suddenly stuck with the Mr. Blobby song in your head, but couldn't quite place where it came from? David hart is now on “Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job” on adultswim. To sum it up: bizarre! Charming. That was the goal.
Greenclaws was a big, fat, slightly camp gardening monster with a penchant for the arts. It was creepy from the first frame, and it just got worse. He simply placed a seed inside the tree trunk, which opened like a microwave, and within minutes it would be fully grown. It may have been set in the 20s and a woman character rode a bike. I remember Let's Pretend's making up stories using only basic items and backgrounds, much in the vein of various 'Playschool' segments. Likewise, I don't recall 'Go With Noakes' as it was just slightly before me, though I knew of the legendary Noakes from my set of 'Blue Peter' year books I collected from jumble sales (yes, I was that nerdy child!) We also can't forget anything that involved Slappy the Dummy or the Ring-like vibe of "Say Cheese And Day", which surprisingly starred a young Ryan Gosling. Perhaps whoever bred this group of lobotomized idiots decided that it would be in everybody’s best interests to isolate them from the civilized world. 15 Twin Peaks. i am totally creeped out!!
The developers could at least have used hand puppets… Also, the hands don’t speak in proper sentences but just utter a few words.
Liked it? Evidently, Hammy was not one hamster but many.
I LOVED Jay Jay the Jet Plane when I was a kid! I also seem to remember it having quite a a promoted debut (as in, a few more TV Times features and Children's ITV promos than usual!
All the show was lacking was an unpainted van lurking around. She tried washing it in a puddle on the way home and was befriended by a little boy. There is nothing creepier and more unsettling than the wanton destruction of one’s own sanity, let alone a child’s. 39.
Maybe you'd rather just forget the haunting uncanny valley imagery of Jay Jay the Jet Plane-- unfortunately, we found fifteen different creepy kids' shows that are sure to keep you up at night as an adult. Unfortunately, that's not exactly what it's remembered by most for.
Land of the Lost followed the Marshall family after accidentally entering an otherworldly portal on their family camping trip. The father, sister, and brother find themselves trapped in another dimension populated by dinosaurs, ape people, and humanoid lizards. Sounds pretty tame, right? I have a vague memory of a 1970s childrens tv programme which featured the song "Alexander's Ragtime Band" possibly as the theme. SHY YETI TV SHOW OF THE DAY... CHILDREN OF THE STONES... (1977) https://t.co/tAArgkyrk1 pic.twitter.com/Gq0yRPQpoo, A wintry, deeply atmospheric John Masefield adaptation dating from an era when children’s television went all out to give its target audience delicious nightmares.

That is her expression.Oh and you all forget Pob. Sound familiar to anyone? The night garden exists only in the mind of a sleeping blue infant wookie. Brazil may just have everyone else beat when it comes to WTF television characters. Atarah came to our school in the 1970's(Haslingden County Primary in Lancashire) and coincidentally years later I took guitar lessons off her step-son.
Amongst them are Makka Pakka – an obsessive troll who travels the garden cleaning all the stones, the Pontipines – a family of tiny people with eight tiny children, and the Tombliboos – three little weirdoes who live in an Ewok village and love to hug and kiss each other.
