    Planet of the Apes (1968).....I was a little to young for it and it was very disturbing.

    I saw it again a few years later and liked it.

    I'm scared to say this on a Disney forum, but:

    Dumbo and Bambi

    I was really sensitive as a little kid, and was a mess about the moms and babies being separated.

    Green Berets. Some idiot thought it would be great idea to bring a bunch of kids from day camp to see the movie in the 60's. My dad was in Vietnam at the time.

    You and me both, I cannot stand the Muppets, ugh, just thinking about them annoys me. I tolerate the attraction for DH, but not any of the movies.

    On Golden Pond and any of the Smokey and the Bandit movies. My mom loved those movies, and any time they were on, that's what we were watching. I liked On Golden Pond the first time I watched it, but she just watched it over and over again.

    James and the Giant Peach... it just disturbed me so much as a child. I have no desire to ever watch it again.

    E.T. -- Got the VHS for Christmas one year in 1980-something and we watched it that day. I completely bawled my eyes out and haven't watched it since and I never will.

    Ever.

    2001 a space idiocy. Boring as heck.

    Then I watched it as an adult just to see if a new perspective was in order.

    Nope. I was right as a kid.

    For some reason that I can't remember, I hated Disney's animated The Jungle Book when I was a kid.

    Watcher in the Woods!

    OMG I was so scared by that film. We watched it at school in 5th grade right before Christmas break. My family lived pretty much in the middle of nowhere (we had to pay to add 3 electric poles to get power out to the property before we built. our lot was 5 wooded acres and none of the large lots around us has homes on them--just trees and the nearest neighbors over half a mile away). The school bus dropped me off around 4:00 and my parents got home around 6:30. We had big floor to ceiling windows all over the house so in winter it woudl be dark out long before my parents got home and the windows were like big mirrors (I do not recall the details, but a mirror/reflection was part of the "horror" in the film). I was a mess for weeks.
    I still do not like scary movies

    "singular"? that's an interesting descirptor. Like you, I recall being up very late as a young child "hanging out" with my parents. I loved the Wild and Crazy Guys on Saturday Night Live back when I was about 3-4 and at the time had no idea most kids did not stay up for that show with their parents. My parents were pretty youg, basically hippies, and I was an only child and very "easy going" personality wise, so it was probably pretty easy for them to enjoy wathcing TV shows instead of putting me to bed, take me to see bands instead of to Chuck E Cheese on a Friday night or whatnot. I have been known to describe my childhood as uncommon but singular would have never ocurred to me---lots of kids grow up similarly, not the majority, but plenty.

    I am too old to have disliked this one as a kid, and I have to admit I have not even watched the whole thing. Like you, that whole animation style just does not work for me. I do not care for it at all.
