What on a game show scared you as a child?

For me it was the dragon roar on Tic Tac Dough. So, what scared you on a game show?

The Dragon was my biggest fear as well, but the Scrabble Stoppers were also a bit unnerving, particularly with no warning coming for them and the exploding flashing effects used for them.  I'll also admit the original introductory sequence to the Wheel of Fortune Final Puzzle bonus format--dimming the studio lights to black over the drumroll--wasn't the best way to do it for me either.

The Daily Double sound effect made me cry when I was two.

During the start of Grand Game in the 80s the zoom in on the "Ten Thousand Dollars" graphic used to scare me there!

I used to be afraid of the giant "NO" in 3 Strikes and falling Hans in Cliffhangers.

When I was 2 or 3 years old, it was the "TPiR" Train whistle and my grandpa would mute the TV til it was over.
But now, I love that sound effect !  :-)

If you don't want me or even like me, then I'm DAMN sure am not gonna let myself want OR
like YOU !"

ironically it used to be the clangs and whoops on tpir. anytime i saw bob go over to the giant price tag i always cringed cuz i thought it always meant they would play grand game. but nowadays i love hearing that sound, probably because it adds excitement to a big win or something.

the time up sound when it was time to end the show on millionaire also used to scare me.

Hans on cliffhangers.  My mom said when I was younger, anytime cliffhangers came on, I would cry because I was afraid that hans would go over the cliff.

The "time's-up" horn from Millionaire, Pathfinder's wrong answer sound effect (EROoooooooo!), and the Punisher from UH-OH!.  Oh, and during Wheel of Fortune's Halloween weeks they change the sound effect when a contestant pulls the Bonus Round card from its holder.  Most often, it's a blood-curdling scream.

Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego scared the living crud out of me. In the later versions they pretended to shock the players and they'd turn into skeletons. I had nightmares about that.
