    I know I have the same post in another topic. (HAUNTED MEMORIES) but since all people can share their creepy stories i decided to create another topic just for my case XD

    When I was a kid my parents used to record cartoons from tv to vhs tapes. We had many vhs tapes without knowing what cartoons each tape had. Most of them had random cartoons, some full, some unfinished because we used to use the same vhs to record something new. One night me and my brother decided to watch one of those old vhs tapes. It was exciting to do since we didn't know what the tape contains. The tape started showing different cartoons mostly mickey and donald shorts etc. When the donald short finished a new cartoon started showing. Unfortunately it was a part of it cause as i said before my parents used to reuse the same tapes to record new stuff. The saved part of the cartoon was 3-5 minutes. It showed a little kid skiing in a mountain full of snow at night and a creepy creature chasing it. The animation was very unique and the atmosphere was creepy. The music was soooooooo weird and unique that I cant describe it. My mother said to my brother to change the tape cause this cartoon used to give nightmares to my brother. Afraid that it will happen to me my brother and my mother started looking for the tv controller to stop the video. but the couldn't find it. Thanks to their reaction I was given the creeps more and didn't take a second my eyes from the tv while they were looking for the controller and telling me to stop watching cause its scary. "Oh no the scary part comes" said my brother and the creepy creature was in front of the kid with the skiis, staring it. There was a pause moment between them and there was a sudden sound (as if a plate or a vase broke) and the kid gasped. Unfortunately, at that moment a new cartoon started playing. (it was recorded over the creepy part) My brother phewed and said to my mother that I was lucky I didn't see that. I asked my brother and mother what is the cartoon name and they didn't know one day they just randomly record that part thinking that it will be a good cartoon to have in our collection. I asked then what why it was not full and they told me that my brother first watched years before I was born and got so scared that had nightmares so they decided to erase it from the tape. I asked what happens next and they said that the creature gets a scary eyes and attacks the child. I remember showing the tape to my friends after school asking them if they had seen the specific cartoon but they said no and that iwas really creepy. many years later when I growed up I asked my brother if he remembers anything from it and he said pretty much the same. I don't have this tape anymore cause we got rid all of them when the dvd player replaced vhs.


    TIMELINE.
    My brother first saw the cartoon between 1997-1998. He got scared so my mother decided to erase the cartoon by recording something new over it. only 2 minutes survived.
    At 1999 accidentally we saw the surviving 2 minutes of it.
    For years it has been haunting me and I remember showing to friends til 2002.
    At 2010 I remembered it and started asking people again in forums. No luck

    You really haven't given much info other than "it's really creepy"
    Was it Ren and Stimpy? That gets weird sometimes and might give kids nightmares.

    Describe the "unique" animation and art style better.
    Compare it with anything else you know.
    What is similar to it? What looks different?
    Put a lot of effort in describing that.

    PS: Also origin, do you have any clue if it may have been a cartoon from America, Canada, France, Japan, etc. Do you remember from what TV channel or whatever was the recording? It was recorded in the VHS in 1997 right?

    the animation was very atmospheric and hand-drawn. (but of course it was 90s)
    it was somehow emotionless and "quiet". the creature before becoming scary (the part that was cut) had a normal smiley face. it looked a lot like human.

    OP, the mean age of gbatempers is probably around 16-18 so I don't think this is a good place for you to find your show.
    Try this: https://www.reddit.com/r/tipofmytongue/
    They specialize in this sort of thing.

    I would also recommend tl;dr-ing your story. Too much filler gets in the way of important details.

    Suggestion (all the details that matter in actually finding the show):

    My brother first saw the cartoon between 1997-1998.
    All but 2 minutes of the cartoon was erased.

    It showed a little kid skiing in a mountain full of snow at night and a creepy creature chasing it. The animation was very unique and the atmosphere was creepy. The music was soooooooo weird and unique that I cant describe it.

    "Oh no the scary part comes", said my brother and the creepy creature was in front of the kid with the skiis, staring at it. There was a paused moment between them and then there was a sudden sound (as if a plate or a vase broke) and the kid gasped.

    I asked what happens next and they said that the creature gets scary eyes and attacks the child.
