Any scenes from movies and TV that upset you when you were younger?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

When people are younger, they tend to be more emotional, whether it's angry, sad, happy, or scared. Please don't laugh at me for this but I was definitely that way when I was younger. One particular scene from a TV show that really had me upset when I was younger was the scene from the 2001 SpongeBob episode called "Pressure" where Sandy beats up the seagulls. Yes, I know she did it in order to save SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs. It doesn't bother me NEAR as much as it did when I was younger, but I still think to this day that Sandy could've and should've done something completely alternative by using her "land creature skills" to properly communicate with the seagulls, explaining that those are her friends and she could come back soon to get them something better to eat, or possibly even distract them so that she and her friends could run away.

 

Feel free to share your thoughts on movie and TV scenes that you think should've and could've been done in a MUCH better fashion or as the title of this thread states, made you upset when you were younger. Don't be shy, :)

That was properly freaky!

 

Also Ganandorf from Ocarina of Time used to scare the crap outta me.  And Sid, from Toy Story, I was always terrified of him and his toys.

I know this will be a relatively common one, but the "air conditioner scene" from 1987's The Brave Little Toaster was pretty heavy for a little kid. That entire film is rife with dark themes and pretty deep ideas, not to mention some clever writing and a great soundtrack, considering it had been marketed towards children. It was one of my favorite films growing up and retains a high standing with me to this day. You don't get as realistic depictions of emotions out of human characters in modern films as you get in animated appliance characters in that one. There's also a handful of adult jokes and references to other period (and older) films, so it's definitely fit for atleast one viewing for the 21+ crowd. The entire film can easily be found on YouTube.

 

Other films I could think of that had some striking moments... Well, it seems I wasn't really into much of Disney's more lighthearted productions, as things like 1940's Pinocchio, 1941's Dumbo, 1977's The Rescuers, 1988's Oliver & Company, 1990's The Rescuers Down Under, 1995's A Goofy Movie, 1995's Toy Story, and 1998's Mulan spring to mind. All very much more "realist" films than some other contemporary Disney productions, all with their dark moments and heavy themes, and some downright freaky (but amazing) stuff. Of course, another favorite of mine, the 1998 dub of 1989's Kiki's Delivery Service comes up, with focus on depression and shame that resonated with me more and more as time went on. Some smart people on those productions, you ask me.

 

On the TV side, there's too many shows I watched when younger to really recall, but three jump out at me right away. Invader Zim, ChalkZone, and, of course, Courage the Cowardly Dog, all from around the year 2000. I suppose that was a turbulent time for everybody, whether it was the continuing shift in the post-Cold War age or the events of September 2001. Weird shows for a weird time with some absolutely nightmare-inducing content that I continue to ponder to this day. I did watch things like Hey Arnold!RugratsThe Wild Thornberrys, and even Pinky and The Brain around the same time, but none of them really freaked me out in all of their oddities. Of course, a lot of it probably went over my head at the time, hah. By the time of Kim PossibleAvatar: The Last AirbenderThat's So Raven, and My Life as a Teenage Robot came around, I was getting resilient to the upsetting stuff, though each of those shows had their moments with me. Mostly excellent shows that I'd like to watch again, given the time and capacity.

I remember watching The Land Before Time 1 back when I was 8 years old,and the scene where Littlefoot's mom dies made me cry for the rest of the movie.I watched the movie again a few months ago,and that scene was sad to me even now when I'm a 26 year old adult.What makes it even more sad is that a few later scenes remind you of her death,like the scene where Littlefoot mistakes his own shadow for her,or the scene where he sees a sauropod-shaped cloud (which is implied to be her ghost) before finding the great valley.And to make things even worse for Littlefoot,he has to lead his friends back to their families without any adult dinosaurs to take care of them,and throughout the movie he is pursued by a T-Rex who killed his mom and wants to kill him too for accidentally taking out his eye with a thorn.

The episode of Rugrats where Angelica said people with outtie belly buttons are aliens gave me a complex until I was old enough to know better. Kids are cruel.

 

And for some reason I used to run out of the room in horror whenever the video for Michael Jackson's Earth Song came on MTV.

In Cool Runnings when they crashed the bobsled and they somehow found it within themselves to pick it up and finish the race and everyone started to slow clap has always got to me for some reason. Even now as an adult and seeing the movie more times I can coun it still puts a lump in my throat and a little tear in my eye.

Every single scene where someone got killed in a movie upset me as a kid because I thought they were actually murdering people for a movie.

I've had a reoccurring dream all my life of a kite with an angry face knocking on my window and offering me outside for a punch up? In my dreams I never left the sanctuary of my home in fear of molestation from said kite. So one day I'm sat on the sofa minding my own business watching Salems Lot (original) with my wife and then I see it, The clowns face on that little boy in his PJ's rapping on the window. Floating around like some kind of helium filled peado space vampire of doom.

 

To summarise, Salem's Lot scarred me for life.

I still remember this very clearly the movie Fox and The Hound made me so hysterical that my mom could not get me to calm down for anything, She ended up just returning the movie because I refused to ever watch it again.

and this, It wasn't so much his "death" but Simba reaction to it and I have trouble watching the movie even now but not because of that but because Simba reaction takes me back to the day I found out about my dad's death and how I somewhat reacted like Simba did

This is ridiculous but when I was a kid I nearly cried or maybe I did during this scene from Planes, Trains & Automobiles starring John Candy and Steve Martin.

Was in the cinema today to see Endgame and the trailer for this years The Lion King came up. Gave me chills.

 

Can't wait to take the Mrs/kids this summer!

An absolute favourite of mine, though never saw it until I'd grown up and moved out. This and Uncle Buck (which I did see as a youngster) are such good movies, so heart warming.

 

John Candy was awesome!

Uncle Buck is still great today! And yeah, I still remember hearing the news he died on the radio. It was so saddening. Such a likeable actor. And other actors that speak of him say he was a gent.

It was a movie I had the kids watch as soon as ready, lol. Essential family viewing, IMHO. Many of the man's films too, including Planes, Trains.. Maybe that one scene at the car hire shop, but dang if it wasn't hilarious.

 

Cool Runnings too was just such a cool movie with real heart, every time with John Candy it all had big heart. Not to say Steve Martin wasn't gold too, lol. Hell, I liked Sgt. Bilko. (Phil Hartman another gem, blimey).

I absolutely love John Candy I have just about every one of his movies but I discovered a John Candy movie that I've never seen or heard about before called Summer Rental but in true John Candy form, it was just as great as his other movies.

 

If you've never seen it I'd suggest you do you won't regret it.

 

Chris Farley is another great and i'd put him up there with Candy even though he didn't make as many movies as Candy he's still one of the greatest and I bet if he had lived as long as Candy did he would've been right up there with him and speaking of Farley.

 

Adam Sandler was on SNL last Saturday and in the ending of the show he sang a song about Farley that made me cry as it reminded me of all the funny stuff he did on SNL and his movies and now he's gone.

The crime film Sexy Beast, I saw it when I was quite young and there is a dream sequence the main character has where this creature straight out of an eldritch horror appears, at the time it scared me. Here's a photo below in spoilers. The picture doesn't really do it justice though.

I'll definitely look that John Candy movie up, don't think I've even heard of it. For shame, lol.

 

Another of his I remember was goofy fun and must get a copy of now I'm thinking of it, Who's Harry Crumb, have you seen this one? 

 

Of what I remember it's just a family kidnap caper, but aside a few scenes in mind, I remember little, lol. Looking forward to another watch.

 

And being a brit, we didn't get much Chris Farley, he's the bus driver in Billy Madison IIRC, seen him in the odd role but as above, I'll definitely have a Google there too. Love recommendations, especially for older gems I may have missed. (How I'd love SNL to be aired here too!). :)

For me, it's completely the opposite with that movie.

 

As a teen/young adult I was a typical lad, and that film had boobies, too distracting along with the carnage, lol. Plus most of my mates mocked it so I rode that train. But then I watched it again years later, after the kids were born too, and that flick hit me like lead. 

 

Definitely one hell of a theme song there that's aged fantastically, a real choker. And in the years since, Leo has become an actor I really do love to watch too. I'm glad I re-watched it.

 

Another old gem of his I found is What's Eating Gilbert Grape? Have you seen that one? It's primarily a Johnny Depp movie, but an old Depp movie (actual acting). Leo's role in that movie was one that when I watched the film left a long lasting impression. The movie is more a TV feel I believe too, bit soap-like. (Been a while).

 

Mum made us watch all sorts of crap, but that one I remembered but forgot it was Leo because Johnny Depp, lol.

 

Oops, bit longer than imagined, didn't even get to mention when the flying monkeys stole Dorothy's shoes, dang!

 

Genuinely scary stuff, but what a movie!

Sadly Chris Farley died way too soon and was the lead in only three movies with credit and appearances in others such as Wayne's World 1 & 2, Coneheads & Airheads but he was the lead in Tommy Boy, Black Sheep with David Spade and then Beverly Hill's Ninja with Chris Rock.

 

If you haven't seen those last three I'd highly recommend them, Tommy Boy is a classic and Black Sheep is a good funny movie while Beverly Hill's Ninja is okay it's more of a "stupid funny" type movie it's not one that'll give you a belly laugh like Tommy Boy would but it's still decent enough.

 

I have no doubt if he had lived longer he would've made many more great movies but drug addiction is a helluva thing and he died a sad lonely death and too add insult too injury he could've been saved but the hooker he was with just took a picture of him dying and then left the apartment and he died
