What were you afraid of as a child that seems silly to you now?
Submitted by navelgazer.
The "Paramount" logo (and associated music) at the end of television shows. Particularly the ones with the red background that zoomed into a white square with the Paramount logo. The music was downright frightening to me. Heck, I even had nightmares involving the red, scary logos. Watching these closing logos today (and you can thanks to YouTube), I am reminded of how scared I really was. Even to this day, the old Paramount closing logos give me the creeps.
There were, of course, other scary logos, but none of them held a candle to the Paramount ones.
