What popular childhood character scared the bejeebies out of you?

I remember disliking "Where the Wild Things Are" when I was in kindegarten! EVERYone else loved it but me. Of course, it's the one classic book I have NEVER read to my boys. And, you know we didn't see the movie either. Bleh! Seeing the ad at the top of cafemom even weirds me out...

  • Wolves in any story, they either eat grandma or teardown houses. I figured they were bad either way

  • Gizmo from gremlins. OF course I hated the gross green gremlins to but something about Gizmo bothered me. The first day of first grade my mom gave me a gizmo stuffed doll that squeaked and I pretended that I liked it but I hated it! i still am not fond of him.

    I have been to the studio in Munich, Germany where they filmed that movie. It was cool and yes that thing was freaky. The whole movie was a little freaky.
