Pixar has come up with some pretty creepy shots in their movies before and I was wondering, did any of them scare you as a little kid? 

Toy Story - Sid's modified toys from hell. That scared me when I was little.
A Bug's Life - The grasshoppers, and HOPPERS TERRIBLE DEATH - that terrified me!!
Monsters Inc - The opening scene (before finding out the monster is a clumsy mess)
Finding Nemo - That anchlerfish!! 
The Incredibles - This movie is filled with dark moments.
Ratatouille - The rats that are hanged displayed on the glass door was a very shocking scene.

From Wall-E and on, i didn't really get scared anymore because I started maturing and actually enjoying real scary movies. But there were some scenes were I thought "I wonder how the kids are holding up"

These scenes include.
Wall-E being crushed by the plant base.
The Carl and Muntz fight (Muntz falling off a very significant height)
The incinerator scene in Toy Story 3
Mordu in Brave.

Again, Pixar really knows how to set itself apart from other animation companies. One of the stradegies to accomplish this is their darker scenes.

So which scene from Pixar scared/shocked you when you were little? Or still kind of bothers you today? Or if there is simply a scene you think could be a bit too scary for younger viewers? If there is a scene I left out, share it!!

The montage of super heroes getting killed by their capes always got me.

Toy Story 3's incinerator scene, hands down. When I'd first gotten through that, I was actually exhausted, because I wouldn't have put it past Pixar to kill these characters, since that is ultimately the end for most toys. And I'm not sure how I would've reacted then, because I've loved these characters for years.

Another one surprised me by worrying me because there was no reason. That was in MU when Sulley goes looking for Mike and arrives at the empty camp. Now, I'd seen MI before, so I knew nothing could've happened to Mike, and I knew the kids weren't actually toxic, and yet I was still at the edge of my seat with worry. No idea how Pixar managed to invoke that, but I take it as a sign of incredible filmmaking.

In Toy Story 3, I thought the characters were actually going to die in the incinerator scene.

One moment that scared me was when Merida found out that Mordu was the prince and then he showed up. I was practically shaking in my seat, because I knew he was bound to show up any second.

Another moment was from Toy Story 2. For a while when I was really little, I refused to watch the movie at all because I did not like it when Buzz and New Buzz are fighting each other in the Buzz Lightyear aisle.

Like BeanoMaster, I thought the characters were actually going to die. This did not scare me, as I was sure they were doomed so I wasn't worried for their safety at that point. I was very upset, as I could hardly see the screen through my tears.

I didn't get scared by "normal" scary stuff as a kid. Yeah, I was afraid of the dark, but most other things didn't bother me. There were only a few Pixar ones though.
  • The mutant toys themselves weren't scary to me, it was just the scene where Woody doesn't know what they are and arms himself with a pencil and then a flashlight.
  • Sulley roaring at the scare simulator in MI. But it was mostly the sound and how close the "camera" was to him that did the trick.
  • The barracuda and the end of the jellyfish scene terrified me.
  • "Frank" the corn harvester in Cars scared me, especially the dream that Lightning has about Frank showing up at the race.
  • The "Screamin' Banshee" from Mater and the Ghostlight always unnerved me.
Cars came out the summer before I started 2nd grade, so stuff after this didn't unnerve me too much, but here are some things that would have scared my younger self.
  • WALL-e getting crushed.
  • The "after dinner" scene up to the part where Muntz burns the house in Up.
  • The little kid playtime scene and the entire dump scene in TS3.
  • The part in Cars 2 when that one agent gets blown up.
  • Anytime Mor'du appeared in Brave.
  • When Elinor transforms.
  • The camp scare in MU.

The scare simulator robots in Monster's Inc terrified me, as well as the demonic toys in Tory Story, I always hid my eyes at those parts.

Pixar Post - T.J.
I can't say that any of the scenes scared me (since I was already in High School when the for Toy Story came out), but I can easily say that the realism of Mor'du made for some more heart-racing moments for me...and, easily the most emotionally disturbing was the incinerator scene in Toy Story 3. Hands down - super emotional and I think I was even more disturbed because the animation was so fantastic that I could actually feel myself about to die along with them. So, so, so powerful! I can still get chills thinking of that scene.

As far as Muntz's death - I always battle with feeling bad for him and feeling somewhat happy that he's finally out of the picture.

Sid's "toys" scared the heck out of me(/fear), i was around 8-10 at the time i watched it first and i was having nightmares for weeks. Modern 'scary' scenes (mor'du, TS3, and wall-e) where a little bit less scary because i was more mature at that time and it didn't really "hit" me anymore.

Later, (i was 13) i watched toy story 2 again (dont ask me why) and i absolutely scared myself by the 'woody gets pulled down by arms' scene, because when i first watched it (10), i didnt saw that scene, so i was absolutely grounded for the next 2 hours when i watched that scene (dont ask me why, but that scene is the most disturbing scene ever from all pixar's movies).
