Which Animated Movie Villain Scared You the Most as a Kid?

garfield-halloween-2This is completely random, but today I saw the new poster for Angelina Jolie’s movie Maleficent on one of the film blogs I read. It triggered some memories about animated movie villains that really got under my skin as a kid. Which, honestly, wasn’t difficult. I was scared by most things as a kid.

So as far as I can remember, there were three movie bad guys that legitimately scared me when I was young:

  1. MaleficentGarfield Halloween Special: My memory is fuzzy on this one, but I vaguely remember Garfield and his dog (Otis?) going to a scary house and being accosted by ghosts. I can’t remember more than that because I’ve blocked out the memory. It was really scary. Ghosts are already scary enough, but ghosts that want to break into your house? No way. I got scared just doing the Google search for this image.
  2. Monstrous Ursula: In the Little Mermaid, Ursula is always a little scary. Purple skin and a huge, gaping smile will do that to you. But when she gets the king’s trident and gets really big and her voice gets all deep…I don’t care how old you are, that is scary stuff.
  3. Maleficent: I don’t remember this movie all that well, but I remember Maleficent. It’s something about those horns combined with her ability to appear anywhere at any time…yeah, she’s still scary.

What about you? What animated villains scarred you for life?
