Scary Childrens’ TV
Anyone else remember the Groke?
Probably/maybe the scariest thing ever seen in a kid’s show. In fact, I first came across the Groke in the book Moominland in Winter, which I must have been all of about 9 when I read. It scared me senseless … although to be fair I had a worse reaction to ‘Watership Down’, which I’ve actually blanked from my memory. (I watched the intro sequence again on YouTube a few weeks ago. Even now, it’s still pretty horrific…)
