Read title. That ventriloquist dummy named Slappy from Goosebumps used to scare the fuck out of me.

I don't really remember life as a toddler, so I can't say, though I think I was afraid of the washing machine.

A chain letter my Uncle got from his email. I think that chain letter caused my Phasmophobia.

I just got a vague memory of this scene. I think I have watched it before.

Wait wut.
Ignore the video after 18 seconds. The first 18 seconds really happened, but the rest was quite obviously edited. (His first word isn't "dammit" either -- they must have cut if from something else to make it sound that way.)


I saw the episode when I was a kid and screamed so much. What actually happens in the next scene is that it shows him with a sick pack on his forehead, a thermometer in his mouth, and his feet in a bucket of water... as if doing that would just randomly give you the common cold.

Spy Kids.

I don't really know why. Probably the Thumb-Thumbs.

Sweepers. I would hide upstairs every time my mom used it.

Dogs. I'm still not too fond of large dogs.

Elevators. I'm still terrified of them. Actually, probably more so now.

Escalators. Now I love them. When I was little, I thought I would get stuck in them.

I remember watching that episode, and he originally says "Janet", the name of the girl on the rock over to the left.
