Eric Dwinnells is back to talk about The Boogeyman as he's known in the US or The Bogeyman as he's known in the UK. A boogeyman is any form of a mythical creature used by parents to gain compliance from their children. Sounds a little messed up, but in a way, I suppose you could argue that Santa himself is a type of boogeyman!

He'll also tell you about the boogeymen her feared as a child (including Disney's Mr. Boogedy, Jesus, and the iron centipede at the "naught children's playground" and magical thinking.
