What a great show from Nickelodeon this was, from Nick's own golden era of shows like Doug, Rocko's Modern Life and Pete & Pete among others comes another long awaited gem of a show. The cartoon debuted in 1994 and lasted 4 seasons containing 52 episodes in total.

The premise is the young monsters are in school learning how to scare humans, many times through out the show they venture up from under the dump where they go to school to visit humans and scare them. Lots of hi-jinks and personality can be found in these monsters, fun for all ages! There were many monsters with zany characteristics but the 3 main ones most would remember are Ickis who is located on bottom right of the dvd package art, he could grow large to scare humans, then you had Krumm on the left bottom who carried his eyeballs in his hands or even in his mouth at times and his specialty was using his foul armpit stench to scare which was quite comical. Then we have Oblina a female monster who could pull out her internal organs, transform herself and was one of the best students in the school. They sure don't make many cartoons like this nowdays!

I reviewed the previous Nick Rewind/DVD-R set and now I finally have my hands on Shout's release. Which one do I like better? Definitely Shout's! I'll go through the details first.

Aspect Ratio: Original Full Screen (1:33:1)
Languages: English, Spanish
Subtitles: English (For the hearing impaired)
Running Time: 5 hours
Openings and endings included in each episode (In the DVD-R set, the opening was only played at the beginning of each disc)

Episodes (played in airdate order)
Disc 1:
1. The Switching Hour
2. Monsters, Get Real & Snorched If You Do, Snorched If You Don't
3. Curse Of The Krumm & Krumm Goes Hollywood
4. Monstrous Make-Over & A Wing And A Scare
5. Krumm's Pimple & Monster Hunter
6. Monsters Don't Dance & Gone Shopp'n
7. Old Monster & Mother, May I?
Disc 2
8. Don't Just Do It & Joined At The Hip
9. Smile And Say Oblina & The Great Wave
10. Cold Hard Toenails & Attack Of The Blobs
11. Chip Off The Old Beast & The War's Over
12. Where Have All The Monsters Gone?
13. Simon Strikes Back & The Ickis Box

Pros: The picture quality is a lot cleaner and smoother than the DVD-R release. The DVD-R sets were priced at about $40 for each season. A bit too much for 13 episodes if you ask me. The price for this set is very much at an affordable price for everyone.

Cons: There is still some grain but this was released in '94 so that's understandable. There's also no extras. I'd be great if Shout! could add some original commercials, bumpers, etc, to their Nick releases.

Overall: A very nice upgrade from the Nick Rewind sets! It's so great to be able to watch these nostalgic cartoons again. :) Can't wait for Season 2!

Oftentimes I'll want to see something again because I remember loving it as a kid. Then I'll rent (or even buy) it, pop it into the DVD player and stare blankly at the screen, wondering in dull horror: "How did I ever think this was a good show? What sort of brainless child was I?" That didn't happen this time. In fact, I may have enjoyed the show more now than I had as a child.

Aaaa! Real Monsters is not at all some uncreative, dumbed down "kid's" show. It was actually quite imaginative and the characters were all unique and memorable. Watching Ickis, Krumm, and Oblina making their way through monster school was entertaining and I did not at all feel that I should be embarrassed for popping in one DVD after another even at the age of 26. It had exactly that daringly dark, twisted touch that those who love the Burton "style" and Invader Zim should be able to enjoy. And, something nice: Oblina, although female, is a unique and likable character, rather than some reflection of one of the boys or serving as merely a figure for the male characters to bounce off of.

So, for those of you sitting on the fence, unsure whether to make the purchase, wondering whether or not this show you once loved will withstand the test of time, don't fret. It absolutely will.

I desperately hope the other seasons debut on DVD. I will buy it without hesitation.

I grew up watching this show on Nickelodeon back in the 90's. I was scared of this show, but at the same time enjoyed how different it was compared to other cartoons at that time. I used to have an Aaahh!!! Real Monsters t-shirt that i got from BlockBuster, in around 1997, when they used to sale Nickelodeon items. I used to catch re-runs of this show on NickToons Network aired it when they first began in 2002. So imagine my shock when Shout Factory announces that they have the rights to release classic 90's Nickelodeon shows like Aaahh!!! Real Monsters & Rocko's Modern Life on DVD. Finally a proper DVD release for these great Nickelodeon shows.

The only problem i ran into with this DVD release was the limited release that this DVD received. Target, Wal Mart, even Best Buy did not carry this release. Only select Best Buy locations have this DVD. When Rocko's Modern Life, Season 1 was released, i was able to purchase it at Best Buy, so i was disappointed slightly...I was starting to lose hope that i would be able to purchase this DVD without having to buy it online. However, i was lucky to find one copy of Aaahh!!! Real Monsters DVD at F.Y.E this morning of the release. It was priced at $17.99, which is the highest price i have seen for the DVD, but regardless, it was worth the money! The person who worked the cash register didn't even know that the show was released on DVD and he worked there. lol. He said how much he loved the show growing up & how it was a great childhood memory, like all of us who grew up on 90's Nick, we have this nostalgic feeling of the 90's, which now we all miss. He went on to say how it made his day and that he was going to go watch it as soon as he get home. lol. It's always good to see another 90's fan like myself.
