By So, I Read This Book Today TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Aug. 11 2014
Format: DVD
I was quite pleased when I ran across Monsters on Amazon. What a hoot! I remember catching a few of these back in '94 when the series premiered, but never caught many as life, the universe and everything caught up with me. Occasionally I would think back and wonder if maybe it would come out on disk sometime. How much fun when I found both Monsters and Tak and the Power of Juju both on Amazon Prime!

The monsters live in the tunnels under an unnamed city, going to Monster School, and learning how to frighten humans. The 'stars' of the show are Ickis, Krumm, and Oblina. Oblina, the female sidekick, is striped black and white, with a huge mouth, bulging stalk eyes, and the ability to reform herself into various and sundry horrible looking creatures, while Ickis can grow his big-eared, big-mouthed body to an impressive size. Krumm, (yes, Krumm is rather dumb) holds his eyeballs in his hands and attacks with a case of BO strong enough to knock over a warthog. Together, they go through the same (but different) trials and tribulations of any trio of class nerdy-misfits, working together to get through school and find their own identities as monsters.

This is a lower scale of violence from some other cartoons in the "old style." I haven't worked my way through all of them - I am taking my time and enjoying as there won't be more when I get through the ones on Amazon, but so far no worries for parents of the younger set. The monsters can be scary, of course, but in a gentler manner that shouldn't frighten the little ones. If you are an adult and like good animation, this is one to check out also.

Finally Season 1 on proper dvd! Sept. 17 2011
By RetroMan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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!

Season 1 (1994 Original air date)

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?"
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"

The cartoon rocks, pick it up if you enjoyed the Pixar Monster's Inc movie.

Pros: We finally get to see Aaaah! Real Monsters on DVD and get a full season set and on proper DVD-9s discs and not those MOD burned style discs.

The price is much better then the Amazon Burn on Demand sets were,

Cons: No extras to be heard of. The picture looks good but doesn't pop so I am not sure if much remastering was done here.

*****5 Stars for the show ****4 stars for this dvd

Aaahh!!! Real Monsters Season 1 Review Dec 8 2011
By MoonLiteStar88 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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!

Note: I grew up in the 90's and when the show first came out, I remember being afraid of it. In the late 90's, As I grew older, I began to enjoy it more. So to parents with young children, this cartoon may be a bit too scary for children under 6. If your child is sensitive to monsters or anything scary, I would not recommend this for them.

Nostalgia Won't Let You Down This Time Sept. 13 2010
By That Lacy Chick - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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.

Before Monsters Inc. there was Ahhhh real Monsters!! Aug. 24 2010
By RetroMan - Published on Amazon.com
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. I know we all wish these shows would come out on proper release season sets with extras but these Amazon MOD seems like all Nick is doing these days for the 90s shows.

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!

Something must be wrong though with the time listing here Amazon, as it only shows 90 mins run time, I mean 3 discs and the first season of episodes do not add up to 90 mins, hope someone there corrects that info. Due to this error I am not sure if this is truly all the season 1 episodes but here is a list from a cartoon database of season 1. *Update " In the comments section I been told these MOD sets are always listed as 90 mins length so I guess we can assume this is the complete first season and just a generic run time listed here"

Season 1 (1994 Original air date)

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?"
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"

The cartoon rocks, pick it up if you enjoyed the Pixar Monster's Inc movie.

Pros: We finally get to see Aaaah! Real Monsters on DVD and get a full season set instead of a " Best Of "
Cons: No extras to be heard of.

Ahhh Real Monsters... Ahhh REALL AWESOME!!! Oct. 15 2010
By Peter the cartoon consumer. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The Ahhh Real Monsters: Season 1 DVD set is well worth the purchase! I had previously bought (from the Nickelodeon rewind collection) Rockos Modern Life: Volumes 1-3. Now the Rockos Modern Life DVD set were not the greatest quality, specifically there were issues with the DVDs playing on my laptop and even on my DVD player.
Now that sucked about the Rockos Modern Life DVDs. However the Ahhh Real Monsters: Season 1 DVD set is much better quality all around. Better packaging, well just much better production all around. I have not had any issues viewing the discs as I did with Rockos Modern Life.
I have viewed the first two discs without any problems but I will update this if this does not remain the case.
To the Amazon.com powers that be, please realize the market for these products exists (obviously you do as these shows are being released), they have a strong fan base who are adults now and want to invest in these awesome products (shows) to pass on to their children. So please continue to produce high quality products like the Ahhh Real Monsters: Season 1 DVD set. If anyone at corporate reads this, can you get me some better quality Rockos Modern Life DVDs, because I think this show deserves a much better produced product than it has previously been given.
