Shout! Factory Gets Ready for Halloween with New DVD Releases: “Aaahh!!! Real Monsters” and “Casper the Friendly Ghost”!

If you’re looking for some terrific shows to add to your collection of Halloween DVDs, head on over to Shout! Factory! They’ve just released two new DVDs that are perfect for setting the Halloween mood.

Casper the Friendly Ghost: The Complete Collection includes all 81 classic Casper cartoons created between 1945-1963 on three discs. Reconnect with the Casper of your childhood and his friend, Wendy the Good Little Witch, as well as the devious Ghostly Trio! The 81 cartoons consist of 55 original theatrical cartoons, plus 26 New Casper Cartoon Show episodes, including a rare episode that has never been released on home video! Bonus features include commentaries with comic book and animation historian, Mark Arnold, author of The Harveyville Fun Times; an interview with voice actor Bradley Bolke; a gallery of comic book covers; and more. These shows are great for family viewing because Casper isn’t scary. He loves to make friends (as you'll see in the video below)!

My older boys were big fans of Aaahh!!! Real Monsters when it aired on Nickelodeon from 1994-2000. This 2-disc set features all 13 episodes from the first season. This animated show centers around the adventures of Ickis, Oblina, and Krumm, who are three teenage monsters going to monster school. Unfortunately, they’re not very good at their homework -- scaring humans! Check out this video sneak peek at Aaahh!!! Real Monsters: Season One!
