Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Nostalgia overload for me while scaring yet teaching the kids

Oh man I LOVED this show as a kid, But it dose MORE than just scare the lights out of the kids, It also exposes kids to history, culture, anthropology, psychology, sociology, folklore, the paranormal, and in one episode religion (Wicca to be specific). All with creepy aesthetic, long story short if you and/or your kids are into the paranormal and are intellectually curious give this show a watch, It's AWESOME!!!
