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!

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!Read more ›
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.
Real Monsters and the Wild Thornberrys and he loves them too. They should revamp these shows for the kids of today. We just loved loved this DVD and watched it for like three days in a row.
