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.
