The show takes us through the struggles of life as a child monster. Three monster friends are studying how to scare humans in school. Often, their attempts don’t work out as planned.
Aaahh! Real Monsters premiered October 1994 which lasted Four Seasons totaling 52 Episodes.
Twenty five years later I personally feel Aaahh! Real Monsters hasn’t really aged, it still feels fresh and well, ageless. Like for example, we can still learn a lot from these three known monsters. Ickis (Charlie Adler), Krumm (David Eccles) and Oblina (Christine Cavanaugh) that are there for each other no matter the cost of stupidity, even if it meant getting in trouble due to trying to scare the kids.
I also find now that it shows us that it’s okay to be scared, that things take time to get right, and finally friends will be there to help even if the Gromble (Gregg Berger) is angry. But then again, they did have a hard time with their nemesis. Simon The Monster Hunter (Jim Belushi).
These are the cartoons that aren’t really “made” anymore. Unless they change the characters and have a meaningless message, however with other cartoons getting a small reboot or should I say modern look. It would make me wonder if they could do something like they did with Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling and Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus movies. As long as Netflix approves.
Nothing thing about this particular cartoon, was School. What kid didn’t do what Ickis did, space out and get punished by the teacher for not listening or doing their homework? It was fun and relatable, and scary fun for the kids.
Merchandise was big in the day for this show, and if you have anything original they go pretty high in prices. Then in October 2013, we finally got the Complete Series on DVD. Now in 2019, they gave us Funko Pop’s
Finally the last nostalgic feel is remembering the video games. One on Super Nintendo, then came back for SEGA Genesis. Aaahh!! The Memories…..
