  1. Maleficent (sleeping beauty) and The Horned King (the black cauldron) for me were the two scariest cartoon villains.

  2. Frollo gave me rape vibes before I even knew what it was – creepy man!

    That along with the pedo dancing beetles from Thumbelina.

    And the lady from the Rescuers!

  3. Churnabog is still number 1 no villains is greater then the Devil himself. The Nostalgia Critic did a top 11 years ago. Go and watch it if you have yet too.
