Creepy, yet Comical
18 April 2003 | by (Buffalo, NY) – See all my reviews

Aaahh! Real Monsters was one of Klasky-Csupo's good Nicktoons. It came around the time Classic Rugrats ended, and the time Duckman premiered on USA.

This cartoon stars some of the strangest looking monsters (the three central characters being Ickis, a red rabbit-like creature, Krumm, a (literal) stink-bomb potato who carries his eyes everywhere he goes, and Oblina, a candy-cane creature). They all live in a city dump (presumably on the West Coast), and feed on garbage.

This kind of material can easily make one lose his lunch. But it's still one of the many most imaginative cartoons ever made. I like the threesome between Ickis, Krumm, and Oblina, and I love the Gromble's delivery. A lot of the stories are very funny. Some involve Krumm having explosive hiccups, some feature Oblina losing her brain, while others might have Ickis controlling time with a seemingly ordinary clock.

Overall, Real Monsters is a definite winner. Sadly, it's rarely seen on TV these days. It's a shame that a studio that once produced such wonderful cartoons are now generating bottom-feeders' delight like The Wild Thornberrys, Rocket Power, new Rugrats, and As Told by Ginger. And although Nick has the right idea of showing SpongeBob and the OddParents, they seriously can't afford anymore bad cartoons, especially from Klasky-Csupo. Their reign of terror WILL soon come to an end -- MARK MY WORDS!
