 Aaahh!!! Real Monsters: Season One

  Review by Suzanne 10/4/11

This is a fun, cute kids' show that aired in the 90's on Nickelodeon. It has a lot of fans that have been waiting a long time to get the show on DVD.  This is not just a nostalgia set. Today's kids should love it, too. Anyone who likes wacky animated shows like Animaniacs would probably love it, too

The reason kids would love this is that it has lots of silly-looking monsters that make gross and funny sounds.  It is constantly moving, too, and of course there are cute and silly voices as well.  Older kids and adults should like it because it's clever and has lots of jokes. It is pure mindless fun.

There aren't any extras or features on the DVD set, but it's nice to have, anyway. There is also no closed-captioning, which is too bad. I think every DVD should have it. You can listen to the DVD in English or Spanish, though, so at least it's bilingual.

Show it on Halloween!  Give this to your favorite kid for Christmas!
