Aaahh!!! Real Monsters: Season 3 Available on DVD September 11, 2012 from Shout! Factory (Review)

Includes All 13 Episodes from Season 3 

Your three favorite monsters—Ickis, Oblina and Krumm—are back! On September 11, 2012, Shout! Factory, in conjunction with Nickelodeon, will release Aaahh!!! Real Monsters Season 3 on DVD for the first time. The third season promises to thrill, chill and tickle your spine—not to mention your funny bone—with 13 more adventures! A must-have for Nickelodeon fans, cartoon fanatics and DVD collectors alike, this 2 DVD set will be available nationwide with a suggested retail price of $19.93.

Watch as the monsters avoid capture by the monster hunter Simon and take on the world with everything they’ve learned about scaring from their headmaster, The Gromble! Season 3 stars the voice talents of Charlie Adler (The Super Hero Squad Show), Christine Cavanaugh (Rugrats), Gregg Berger (Transformers), Tim Curry (Clue) and James Belushi (Hoodwinked!). Aaahh!!! Real Monsters aired on Nickelodeon from 1994-2000 and returned in 2002 on the Nicktoons Network. In 2006, the show began airing on Nick Rewind.  The show was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in Outstanding Achievement in Animation.

My Thoughts:

My husband turned me on to this animated series back in college, when he was going through a cartoon phase.  He loved watching all the popular shows including this one, and would record them when he was at work, to watch over the weekends.  So, when I received this new DVD set, you can only imagine how excited he was.  Even though he has already seen the 13 adventures included on the DVDs, he couldn't wait to sit down and watch them in the evening, after the girls were in bed.  

Unfortunately, we have been up most nights this week, as our house was hit by the nasty head cold that is going around.  So, instead of watching in the evenings, he ended up watching an episode at a time before he went to work in the mornings.  I was in bed, so didn't get a chance to watch them with him.  But, when he would call and check on the girls and I at lunch time, he would fill me in on what he saw and how great this animated series was.  

He still has a few episodes left to watch, but I guarantee come Tuesday that they will all be watched -- some maybe a second time.  Nickelodeon fans, cartoon fans and fans of this popular 90's show will definitely want to add this new 2-disc set to their collection.
