I remember being scared by Doctor Who & Round The Twist. Also my younger sister was too scared to watch Terrahawks.
I had a poster on my wall as a kid of the bull with horns & red eyes from Ghostbusters & I’d fall asleep facing away from it as it scared me.

The thing about programmes like Round the Twist is it would probably be banned due to parental concerns.

Still remember the ghosts in the attic and the haunted dunny. Actually visited the lighthouse a few years ago. No ghosts though I think the old ladies house is still there.

Terrahawks was fantastic...
However... When David Banner changed into the Hulk I was usually hiding behind the couch.
The panto horse in rentaghost also gave me the beebie geebies for some reason

The flying monkeys with wheels for feet out of the Wizard of Oz 2 were the scariest baddies in anything ever.

That’s exactly what I thought of when I read the thread title. Were they called “wheelers?”

I remember “The haunting of Cassie Palmer” in the 80s, where a kid playing with her mums Ouija board summoned up a scary looking highwayman called Deverill. This was on just after John Cravens Newsround on BBC 1. Way too much for the kids nowadays.

Just looked up that Haunting of Cassie one on YouTube. Not sure what's scarier, the programme or the video quality! Actually looks a good watch but the quality is awful. The spirit looks scary.

2nd vote for David Banner. Dont know what it was about that. By that age I was happily watching Poltergeist, but in The Hulk, when the noise came on and his eyes changed I would leg it

What about Eerie Indiana? Still remember the episode with the mum who kept the family young by putting them in giant Tupperware dishes every night.

Thanks for this Twin Par - my daughter moans that whenever I reminisce about my childhood I keep going on about 2 programmes - HR Puffnstuff and a programme I don’t remember the name of that had a bear sitting on top of a cave looking down on a girl - from your description I suspect this was the Singing Ringing Tree - I’m tempted to look it up on Prime but suspect I will be hugely disappointed.
