No, I was fearless as a kid and teen. I was surrounded by thugettes and thugs.

The wicked witch scared me the most, but my Dad always told me he "knew a guy" in touch with the flying monkey's and if I didn't eat all my dinner..... They were only a phone call away 😲

Let me set the scene for you...... picture it..... dark two laned road ..... I am the only one out there. No head lights coming towards me. About to turn the bend of a small hill next to me..... when all of a sudden something scurries out from the opposite side of the road brush and scampers across the road and disappears into the dead plants to the side of me. It's eyes glowed at me for a moment as it was blinded by my headlights..... yes it looked like it had the snarling teeth of that old childhood creepy monkey that ate people! Oh I hoped my car would NOT chose to break down at that moment! Lol!

Definitely creepy monkey! No raccoon, opossum, skunk, groundhog, squirrel (well maybe squirrels according to Jaimie) would ever scurry across a dark road. Creepy monkey for sure!

I remember my brother and sister were terrified of a scene from StarTrek Next Generation where there were two visitors on the Enterprise that suddenly transformed into beast, werewolf looking creatures. I don't really remember a scene that scared me.

I don't remember anything that scared me. I do remember my little brother being so scared by the abominable snowman in Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer that he hid behind the couch.

There's two that stand out, Jaws (I hid behind the couch, and the only other time I did this was during games of hide and seek or when The Pools man (football) knocked on our door and our dad wasn't in to pay him).

And American Werewolf In London., I sat frozen to the spot, literally "scared stiff."

Good scary ones! Jaws sure had our beaches "deserted" for awhile. As a kid, I was glad to be hundreds of miles from either coast.

On t.v. .... I was terrified of Korla Pandit, the organ player who had his own show in the early 1950's.

I must admit, I had to google him. :)
Thanks Janis. That was an interesting read. Go figure! He's not really Indian.

I know, Happy! A 4-year old has a pretty vivid imagination, and they deliberately marketed him as a mysterious being. (I thought he could see me through the screen.) LOL
