People were left shocked when a horror recreation of the fan-favorite children’s story Winnie the Pooh came to life. Blood and Honey ruined all the sweet memories we cherished during childhood watching this honey-loving bear. While it filled viewers with the fear of what these cute toys can do after being abandoned by kids. Now the director Rhys Frake-Waterfield who brought this bloodthirsty horror villain on-screen is eyeing other characters. But fans are not so happy with the proposal that the writer made and they are deploring his idea.
In a new photo shared by Cartoon Base on Twitter, people got to know that the British filmmaker is interested in making horror flicks for Teletubbies and Ninja Turtles. According to Collider, Frake-Waterfield showed his excitement about remaking a horrifying version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He said that these half-humans and half-turtles have underlying terror he would like to explore.
‘Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey’ Director Wants to Make Teletubbies & TMNT Horror Movies.
“I'd love to have them like down an alleyway cutting people up, feeding them to their rat king on pizza or something. I hope I can get the copyrights to that, but I don't know if I can.” pic.twitter.com/xXjLqNoQUw

One fans said “Okay, this is getting a little ridiculous. The Teletubbies was a show for toddlers and the TMNT were never murderers despite the comics usually getting a little adult. We don’t need a horror movie on everything based on children’s media.”
Second fan commented: “I hope whoever owns the teletubbies IP keeps an iron grip on it to prevent this from happening.”
“Our childhood favorites will not become horror slashers with bad language,” revolted another.
I’m convinced this guy is an early 2010s lost episode creepypasta writer who never grew out of that phase.
