4.0 out of 5 stars Goofy fun - eyeball anyone? Aug. 11 2014
By Leiah
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Trouble For Aaahh!!! Real Monsters DVD Oct. 4 2011
By Doryuu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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.

The shows quality and picture is great on the DVD, and is more amazing then i remembered. I wish there were special features, but it's all good! They show the introduction of the series in all the episodes, but i'm okay with this because the intro is not the same because they do switch up what the Groble says...but the intro might bother others to hear after every episodes though. But i would suggest this DVD and Rocko's Modern Life DVD to anyone who grew up on 90's Nickelodeon.

I wish they would had re-did the cover for the release because it was same art cover as the burn-on-demand discs that Amazon was selling too, which is not worth the money and were overly priced at that. Glad i waited for this DVD release. Now let's just hope they release the other 3 seasons of the show and Rocko's Modern Life, so i can complete my collection. Now if i can just get a DVD release for Doug & Rugrats too, then i will be set.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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.
