Yes, a generation of Australians spent their youths enjoying the antics of a walking, talking genital. To be fair to the show's creator, it's supposed to be a gill, since Coredor is an aquatic creature. But if children couldn't identify exactly what was so off-putting about his flappy mug, they certainly did by the time they reached Facebook and BuzzFeed age.

Lift Off was another Australian educational TV show. In some ways, it was ahead of its time, showing how kids act in certain situations, how they think, imagine, learn, and understand. On the other hand, it had a faceless baby.

That's EC, a living doll that's supposed to represent "every child," but actually only makes them shit their tiny pants. According to one of the show's actors, its lack of facial features was intended to allow kids to interpret it any way they want.

ABC TelevisionWe so rarely get to describe children's entertainment as "Lovecraftian."
That's Beverly, a one-eyed magic potted plant. It sees the world of nature (and probably your deepest fears, which likely include this lurking lizard character that watches you shower).
ABC TelevisionThough in Australia, this would be seen more as a child's pet than a fever dream nightmare serpent.
