Hey, hey, we never talked about this before. The funny thing about being a child is that things that are utterly benign now held so much threat. Some of the things that terrified me as a kid still terrify me now, sure, but when you're young some things in the world are just plain scary.

First subject: Ecco the Dolphin

Image

Seriously, fuck this game. It absolutely destroyed my love of swimming. I must have been 7 or 8 when my dad bought it for our mega drive and it just absolutely gave me the creeps. You play as a dolphin called Ecco who jumps up in the air and suddenly all the creatures of the sea are scattered across the world for absolutely no plausible reason.

You are then forced to swim around in gloomy underwater caverns, ancient ice flows and old sunken cities, speaking with other dolphins and some whales whilst avoiding octopus, crabs, puffer fish and other shit so you can find out how to fix this mystical problem. And then aliens. Yes, aliens. Proper, terrifying aliens too!

The game had a dark atmosphere and you often felt very, very alone. Never mind the incredibly steep difficulty curve and it's unforgiving nature. Oh and bear in mind that dolphins are mammals, so finding somewhere to jump out of the water and breathe is also difficult when most of it takes place in underwater caves.

Asphyxiation anyone?

Ecco the Dolphin was awesome, stop being a pussy.

Also, it's ice FLOES. Not FLOWS.

Oh, sorry.

I do agree that it's awesome. I was playing it the other night and really enjoyed it, despite how difficult it was. But the game really gave me the creeps as a kid. It got to the stage where I would only watch my dad playing it.

THIS GUY AND HIS GODDAMN LAUGH!!

I would hide under the covers during the intro to each episode.

strangely enough, the episodes themselves never quite scared me. Not even the one about the ice cream man and his conjoined twin.

I'm gonna need names and descriptions, can't see all pictures.

By the way, I was scared of Brum when I was a kid.

Image

Brum was a tiny little old car who was actually alive and could speak to people. This was a live action show. The car would drive BY ITSELF around the town when it's owner had left the workshop and generally fuck people's shit up. For example, if Brum met a lollypop lady, she was going to get run over and he would have to take over or if Brum met a footballer, the footballer's leg was going to break and Brum would have to play in his place.

Brum scared the hell out of me. I don't like 'objects that are alive' - personification has always terrified me. So if suddenly a pencil comes to life or a vacuum cleaner talks to humans in TV shows or cartoons, I get a little edgy. This is why I don't read much Stephen King because he seems to like this concept.

Also - who the fuck would need such a tiny car? Seriously? It could only be somebody who was about to fuck your shit up.

Gather close, ye kiddies, and I shall tell ye a story of a pussy called Matthew.

When Matthew wiz a boy, ye see, he wiz a fearty wee basturt wae nary a testicle tae call his a'en. He wid talk big in front ae his pals an' promise them tales ae' bravery an' promiscuity but cidnae deliver. An' wan day, Matthew stayed at his pals hoose where the boys decided tae watch Jurassic Park. Y'see, back then it wiz a new film, nae'bdy had really seen it an' the copy the lads wid watch wiz a pirated wan.

An' so, Matthew bein' a big fearty bawbag, began tae panick. For he wiz afraid ae simple shite like Ecco the Dolphin an' Brum! How wiz he gonnae convince his pals he wiznae scared? Well he'd jist have tae watch it, widn'ee? An' so they sat doon. An' wee Matty wiz awright fir the first wee while, the dinosaurs wurnae scary. An' then the T-Rex chucked a goats leeg ontae the car the bairns were in.

Matty pished his pyjamma bottoms and burst intae tears.

Poor Matty was mocked the rest of his life.

I am, and always will be, afraid of horses.

My dad is a cowboy, and he wanted his children to be lil cowpokes, but we would have none of it. He'd buy us little cowboy boots and clothes from the western clothing store, but the boots were always tight and the clothes itchy as hell. not to mention that those western shirts had to be tucked in to your pants. I hated tucking in my shirt as a kid.

anyway, one day when I was 5 years old my dad decides it'd be the cutest fucking thing in the world to cram my feet into some cowboy boots, dress me up like some character in the gay rodeo (pink and white shirt with fringe, pink pants, and a white hat) put me on top of a big horse and let me hold the reins while he snapped a picture.

well, this horse didn't take too kindly to children, and he didn't take too kindly to how I was gripping his reins, so he decides to buck. I lost my shit then and started to cry and scream bloody murder.

and then the horse gets up on his hind legs and down I go to the ground.

I was covered in dirt, I pissed myself, and I was absolutely terrified.

Since then, I won't even get close to one of those damn animals, no matter how good natured, old, or young they may be.
