great show, severely underrated
27 August 2003 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

i recall seeing the show 1st on video looking around at my video store in 1989 and noticed a collection of Freddy videos that wouldn't have been the movies so i rented 2 there were about 8 in the collection that were released by Virgin Vision the first one i saw was "It's a Miserable Life" and then the second one on that tape was "Freddie's Tricks and Treats" 2nd tape was with "No More Mr Nice Guy" and "Killer Instinct" one thing struck me about the show was that it was very clever and very eerie or surreal and maybe somewhat macabre the music was surreal and original not typical horror music by hard to classify.

it is a fave show of mine as it aired on Australian TV in the early 90s late at night 10:30-1:30 slot
