On Friday's Morning Edition, NPR's Elizabeth Blair looks at Halloween TV and other scary stuff for kids, asking the question: How do you know what's too scary?

She spoke to writers behind Halloween episodes of PBS's Arthur and a new kids'-werewolf comedy on Nickelodeon, but we want to hear from you, too. When you were a kid, what did you find terrifying that was meant to be terrifying — or wasn't meant to be? Were you more afraid of the obvious stuff like spooks and headless horsemen, or more afraid of unexpected things like ... well, if we knew, they wouldn't be so unexpected, would they?

We're taking this Halloween as an opportunity to explore what gave us pleasant tingles and less pleasant night terrors, so please pitch in your scariest memories.
