Originally airing in the early '90s and comprising only 19 episodes, this series is easily overlooked amid more modern offerings, but it's actually a great pick for family entertainment. Although the title suggests some frightful content, these aren't the typical jump-out-of-your-skin kind of scares, nor are there any truly "bad" guys. Instead, they touch on urban legends like Bigfoot and aliens, or they cast suspicion on hallmarks of suburban life like Tupperware parties, all in a lighthearted context that's entertaining for a range of ages.

Because the subject matter changes with each episode and your kids' sensitivity to one topic might be a bigger concern than to another, you might want to preview them before sharing them with your younger kids. For older kids, though, Eerie, Indiana is a fun, off-the-beaten-path throwback that's so entertaining you'll want to take in with them. What's more, you'll both have fun comparing the '90s-style special effects to what CGI offers us today.
