While most kids movies are made and catered specifically to their demographic, that doesn't mean that the older creative members behind the films aren't ever subtle about inserting some humor or references for adults. However, some deleted movie scenes from over the years have proven to push that line a little too far, where the adult content in the scenes either completely change or alter the tone of the film beyond repair.
Even a company as careful as Disney is not always able to avoid disturbing scenes deleted from kids movies. Whether that be scenes that went on too long and into much darker territory than their theatrical versions did or sequences that were entirely cut from the film due to their thematic material, there are a number of examples of creepy children's movie scenes.
Here are just some of those dark or gross kids movie scenes that were, thankfully, excluded from their theatrical releases. Vote up the dankest ones you're glad you never saw as a kid!

It's well-known at this point, that when you go back to watch movies from several decades ago, you're going to run into some material that would be wisely considered inappropriate or offensive in contemporary society. And thank goodness this scene was cut from Back to the Future, otherwise rewatching the sci-fi classic could be a much more uncomfortable experience.
Right before Marty goes to pick his mother up for the Enchantment Under the Sea dance, Marty and Doc Brown engage in brief conversation. But what starts out as Marty trying to work through the nerves of actually taking his teenaged mother out on a date quickly descends into creepy territory.
Not only does Marty imply that this could scar him permanently and turn him gay in the future, but Doc reacts to all of this in the most creepy way imaginable. By saying that Marty should be happy to be taking his mother on a date.Can you believe this was made?

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is widely regarded as being one of the best sci-fi films of all time, and for good reason. It's a well-written and well-acted film, that focuses more on character than it does spectacle, and features one of the greatest cinematic villains of all time in Khan.
However, it turns out that the film almost went too far into darkness with the character's motivations and backstory. Khan was supposed to have a baby boy of his own in the film, who made several appearances in the original version. But as Khan is facing defeat and decides to activate the Genesis Device, creating a new planet, the baby would have been drawn to the device's bright lights... right before it blew up.
So yeah, it's probably a good thing the film decided to scrap this entirely. After all, nobody really wants to see an innocent baby boy get blown up by in space and it would have ended the film on a much different, unecessary note.Can you believe this was made?
