Unnecessarily Horrifying Episodes Of Beloved Kid's Shows

Kids shows are by default supposed to be free of adult content, and if scary moments arise they should be immediately followed with lighthearted fun to keep the kiddies from getting scared of the show.

But as soon as a show starts targeting a somewhat older audience they begin to introduce mature themes they couldn't include before, which leads to the creation of some absolutely horrifying episodes.

Captain Planet generally kept the quest to fight polluters around the world as lighthearted as possible, but when the Planeteers faced a drug dealing scumbag named Verminous Skumm in the episode Mind Pollution things got really dark.

Verminous sells a drug called "Bliss" to a kid named Boris, a drug that turns kids into crazy zombies. Boris gets high and jumps through a window, causing him to bleeding profusely from the arms, and later after taking more Bliss he falls down dead of an overdose.

I thought Captain Planet was rated Y7, who would want their seven-year-old to see such things?
