10 Most Disturbing Children's TV Shows. Ever.

Written by Louise MacGregor

Creepy children’s tv shows are everywhere.

Everyone has a TV show that they remember with unbridled terror from their childhood, in amongst all the sweet, gentle shows about talking trains and mischievous puppets living in a houseboat, cutting through the syrupy nostalgia like Michael Myers’ blade through an unsuspecting, nubile teenager.

And British TV is a particularly ripe ground from which many terrifying kid’s TV shows appeared.

Shall we regress a few decades and take a look at the most disturbing retro kid’s TV shows?

Old Boy Network

Genre: Comedy
Channel: ITV

Transmission: 1992

Espionage is a glamourous old game, ain't it? Just look at James Bond with his Aston Martin, sharp suits, gadgets and classy cocktails.

And don't forget the Bond babes. Never ever forget those beautiful, but sometimes lethal gals.

Of course, it's not all glamour for spies, sometimes they have to do a bit of work. Naturally, being a spy, this work usually involves being a sneaky, duplicitous individual in order to get what they want.

Basically they're backstabbing conmen. But give them a posh accent and it's all just part of being a cad.

And who doesn't love a cad?

Therefore it's time for us to don our best disguise, bug a few phones and investigate the cads and babes in Old Boy Network.

Feet First

Genre: Comedy
Channel: ITV

Transmission: 1979

Someone once said that "Football's a funny old game" and they weren't half wrong. You only have to take a look at the player's private lives and, even more hilariously, their idea of acceptable decor.

Clubs try to stem this damaging publicity by taking a leaf out of politics and investing in a bit of spin to make matters more palatable.

As with politics, though, this can often blow up in football clubs' faces as demonstrated in Feet First

When we think about pets, we tend to concentrate on their classical attributes. Cute, furry and ridiculously loyal, we’re more than happy to cut them a bit of slack when we discover them chewing the sofa or vomiting in our designer loafers. After all, they don’t mean any harm, a fact you can glean from the unwavering innocence in their eyes. However, much like their human owners, certain pets are more prone to emotional issues than others. And, if you want to see what happens when four such pets live in a pressure cooker environment, you don’t have to look much further than Pets.
