    On this video, there are a number of comments which explain why it was scary (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UaxlFQTTlLk):

    This used to terrify me as a young kid when we'd put a video (always pingu) into the VCR player. I remember I used to run out of the living room crying and screaming. It's almost like the music was quietly signifying something very tragic and unfortunate (like someone nearing death) that you didn't quite know the story behind. It only get's even more tense towards the climax, and once the music has ended, you're left with this very unsettling complete silence that fills the room, the kind of silence that used to signify something along the lines of... there's no need to worry, said person quietly passed away in peace during the jingle.

    In over words, this terrifying jingle used to make me feel like I wasn't alone in the living room, when I was.

    I feel bad for anyone who experienced this logo as a kid. Just putting in a VHS of such a happy and innocent kid show like Pingu or Wallace and Gromitt, and being treated to THIS thing before the feature presentation can be quite terrifying for a child. First off, the logo has a dark and gritty feel to it (the background mainly sets the tone). Second the music is real depressing. It has a funeral-like feeling to it, especially the ending note. Speaking of which, that last note makes me think of the ending of Quiet Riot song "Still of the Night", but that song didn't have a depressing feel to it.

    In those three seconds how did they, as children, have time to think all that?
    And how do you even differentiate between the start, climax and ending...dedicate a second to each? Bunch of bored media students, me thinks :lol:
