This head finds use any time a fig finds themselves in an upsetting situation, such as Patrick's Kabaya Ghost Stories, my Black Diamond, Chris's The Charge of the Black Knight, Ley's Jumper, Moko's Ski, Nelson's Wizard Woes, Weapons Testing and Halloween, Rocco's Guillotine, Toxic and Zombie, Josh's Stocks and Consequences, Stephen's Lecture, and Nathan's Exorcism, Christmas Lights Fiasco, Sleepy Hollow, and Precarious Moment vignettes. I'm sure there are several others that I've missed as well.
This raises the question of "Why?". Is there something particularly humorous about putting little plastic figures in perilous situations? Is it funnier to have this head in a dangerous situation, or the classic smiley (as found for instance in Adrian's Super-Agent scenes)? Why the scared man head and not his counterpart scared woman (she does appear in vigs, but not nearly as often)? What do you think? What does the prevalence of the scared man reveal about our own inner fears?
