What Looney Tunes shorts do you think were the darkest or creepiest? For me, I've always found Chowhound to be pretty dark, especially the ending. Also, some of the shorts where Sylvester and Porky Pig went to this haunted house was pretty creepy too. I've heard that Invasions of the Bunny Snatchers was really creepy too because of the doppelgangers, even though I haven't seen that short yet.

I don't know about full shorts, but there were several individual moments that were pretty creepy. Lots of suicide gags, for example (although they were pretty funny, as well).

Oh yeah, I remembered the numerous suicide gags they had, although they had cut them out when they aired on TV.

What about those Bertie and Hubie shorts, like The Hypo-Chrondi Cat or that one where Bertie and Hubie eat too much cheese, and therefore think it's time to die. What is the name of that one?

The episode where they ate too much cheese and think it's time to die was called "Cheese Chasers."

Sorry to bump but...

Anyone remember Rocket-Bye Baby (1956)? You know, that one-off short where a father ends up raising a martian baby (named 'Mot') after a cosmic disturbance? There was some stuff in there that always unnerved and weirded me out a bit, like the father falling out of a skyscraper window to his presumed death while yelling "WHERE'S MY BABY?!?".

Jumpin' Jupiter
(1955) also applies a bit, not just because of that strange bird-looking alien, but the stuff that Sylvester goes though trying to (unsuccessfully) convince Porky that they're being abducted, much to his annoyance. The way that he says "get off of me Sylvester, or I shall KILL you!" is pretty chilling, in a darkly humorous way nonetheless.

I had both of these on a VHS tape of space-themed LT shorts (all directed by Chuck Jones), so revisiting them brought back some fun memories.

I don't think I've seen those shorts, but they do sound dark and creepy.

"There's a couple of very Adult Fear moments in "Duck Amuck" when you realize how existential it is."
One of the funniest moments in animation history is apparantly scary for some people :D

Disney and FOX are now one. Yay...
The Disney-FOX deal is an April Fool's Day prank gone real.
Disney officially owns 21st Century Fox as of today. The 4,000 laid off employees from both companies must be feeling so dang ecstatic right now.
I kinda like Phil Collins and am not afraid to say so!! (don't tell anyone)
Seriously, why can't Boomerang switch back to their original brand and air classic cartoons again?
