This Is Scary?

As children we all had different things we were scared of, like the dark, big dogs, and bugs. But imagine my surprise when I found out some people were scared of, hard as it is to believe, TV company logo clips. The one in the clip above is for Screen Gems, which some folks refer to as "the S from Hell." It was commonly seen at the end of various programs from the mid '60s to the mid '70s, including such widely seen favourites as The Partridge Family and Bewitched. Many people say it scared them as kids. Personally I like that music, and think that being scared of that five second logo animation was a very odd thing to be scared of.
