@dmeconis strongly agree. Mr. Rogers was also fine except I had a problem with some of the uncanny looking puppets (Lady Elaine WTF) (also was she drunk her face was ALWAYS red)
@dmeconis yeah, come to think of it there are a lot of scenes where kids almost die in horrible ways in movies FOR CHILDREN. I had a hard enough time with just, like, the children being separated from their animals in Homeward Bound
@dmeconis anyway I think it probably is an early indicator of anxiety since what are movies but a chance to catastrophize without relying only on your imagination
@dmeconis oh yeah, children in peril alone was my thing. I was already afraid of getting lost bc children are CONSTANTLY warned about getting lost, so all of those cheerful kid on their own Disney gambits were basically just stressful. also the girl in the well bucket from The Rescuers 🙈
