Spooky fun for all, 11 January 2000
Author: Op_Prime from Ardmore, PA

For a show directed at little kids, this is surely entertaining. This clever little anthology series (and to the best of my knowledge one of the first SNICK shows) came up with some very spooky and highly entertaining stories. Sure, they aren't scary, but they are interesting. Anyone will find this show fun to watch.
