Mr Boom. My mum took me too see him live once but apparently I was terrified and refused to go in.

Dr Who. I was afraid of the Darleks! I hide behind a cushion!

Antiques roadshow and songs of praise... always reminds me of being bored on the weekend back in the day of just four channels

Tiswas- too chaotic and people throwing stuff at each other, it made me anxious! I was a funny little kid grin

Me too! As soon as the Dr Who theme tune started I would hide behind the sofa.
I was born in 75, at school we watched some weird programme about a blonde alien boy called peep peep (?) scared the crap out of me.

Jackanory. Boring!

formerbabe Wed 10-Jan-18 20:38:48

Oh and as a child I hated cartoons...which is weird.

Blue Peter here too.

justdontevenfuckingstart Wed 10-Jan-18 20:40:10

Oh I found it, fucking terrifying.

Rentaghost. God it was awful.

When I was nursery they used to show Come Outside. I hated dogs at the time and used to scream/burst into tears at the sight of Pippin. I don’t mind dogs now of course!

*when I was IN nursery!

John Craven's Newsround. Booooooring.

sproutsandparsnips Wed 10-Jan-18 20:46:47

Oh yes jackanory was so boring.
And so was newsround.
Does anyone remember Chocky?

missyB1 Wed 10-Jan-18 20:47:27

Ken my dog is named after Pippin!

My daughter used to love come outside until the end bit when pippin is just sitting there. She would burst into tears everytime. Had to make sure I turned it over before the end

Gingernaut Wed 10-Jan-18 20:58:11

Songs of Praise

Greenteandchives Wed 10-Jan-18 20:59:35

The Singing Ringing Tree. Just weird.

GertrudeCB Wed 10-Jan-18 21:00:45

Tails of the Unexpected confused

Lots of programmes that scared me. I was even scared of the Goodies. But those public information films or lifeboat day ones. People being washed out to sea, people getting electrocuted, people playing on rail tracks. But I suppose that, at least, makes sense.

Heart beat grin

The pink windmill thing with grotbags and rod hull and emu. Hated rod hull. Hated emu. Hated grotbags. The whole bloody thing was terrifying sad

Just about to say Grotbags - she was terrifying!
