Scary (in a good way)

This TV show is one of my faves. I really do love to be scared, so I love this siris, but younger, more sensitive kids may be a bit freaked out, so I think this show should be for a brave 8. Also, parents don't tell your child it's gonna end well, because it doesn't.Goosebumps people, MAKE MORE EPISODES !!!!!

Good but it is very mildly scary

I don't get why all these reviews are saying in the show is very very very spooky because it's very mildly spooky I only actually I watched almost all the episodes and they're all and they're all really mildly scary it's all suspense I feel like so don't worry parents it's not scary it's only a little bit scary so that's my review just don't worry

Takes me back

The first of the three horror type kids shows I remember, and the best of the bunch. Might be too spooky for young ones.

Awesome but old...

A great show and is definitely matched up to the great books although it could do with a revamp, actors aren't the best and graphics aren't great. But, hey, what can you expect from the 90s?!

Never loved

This show is an interesting idea, but I feel it
Could have been executed better. This show is VERY
Erie and it's so Erie that it gives me a headache.
It's pretty scary and disturbing sometimes, and in one episode
A little girl squirts fake blood at her brother, then blames it
On him. Occasional blood and Gore, but it's pretty rare.

So Cool!

I love this Goosebumps.It is so cool.
I even don't feel scared after watching it.
It's just for fun not for getting frightened.
But it may be frightening to such kids who think that a ghost will come to their house and eat them and so on.

Come on people

This show is awsome, it’s the kid version of chucky when it comes to slappy. It’s a very good show you should watch, but if you hate chucky skip the slappy episode

I never liked this show. When I was 9, I watched this at a halloween party for school, hated it, don't watch if you feel you may not be able to handle it, you probably won't. I'm sure I can handle it now, but still. Just don't.

Creepy but amazing! “Warning! This review has spoilers for the series!”

So, this tv show is really good but creepy I don’t think under 9 years are okay to watch by themself. But I only found 1 episode scary, it was the my friend is invisible episode not the let’s get invisible episode. So there are some violence and shocks in it where slappy in the episode night of the living dummy 2 squeezes a little girl’s hand. If you’re wondering what was so scary about the invisible episode it was when the faces were on the back of the mother, the father and the main protagonist’s head. Also all of the episodes have a creepy atmosphere in them. Also slappy normally in every episode gets destroyed. Who finds the my friend is invisible episode scary? Me. Any one else?

I mean, theres no real "scary bits" and my 2 year old brother loves it to bits and most of the characters are good role models and stay calm in stuations.

Great Series of spookiness!

i loved goosebumps books, a bit formulaic but still a good and short read, easy for younger kids as well as older kids. And even now sometimes i will still read them! And some of the time they even have good messages, or at least change in the character by the end of the story. The show was cheesy but i still liked it.

VERY mature horror series. Most definitely not for anyone under 9 years old. Great series but very inappropriate and way too much horror violence for a kids,series.

Viewer beware your in for a scare

The shows violence is slightly intense but mostly cartoonish. There were a few make outs and rare name calling.

Scary and Super Dooper Looper Fun to Watch, but the Special Effects are a Bit Cheesy

This classic thrill show is okay, but the creepiness is intense! I hate how dark the three episodes A Night in Terror Tower, One Day at HorrorLand, and (I forget the other one, it was about a haunted house and a danger club) are! But if you're brave enough to go a step further, try Haunting Hour The Series, that'll really give you chills! But wow, I mean Jesus, there are so many great messages in Goosbumps!
