Like "Ren and Stimpy", this cartoon was a throwback to the days when
cartoons were in the theaters and appealed to older audiences. The twisted
humor this series had was really something else. Of course, like all
cartoons trying to tap into the warped humor of the theatrical cartoon,
one was put into a time slot where no one would watch it and was
subsequently cancelled in favor of cartoon shows that were nothing more
thirty-minute commercials for a stupid fad.
I really loved this series. Why did it have to die?!
Toonsylvania was a classical cartoon. It was funny and had very clever episodes. My favorite characters were Melissa Screetch and the zombie family. I especially liked the episode when Melissa Screetch met the three bears and tried to take over their house. That really gave me some good laughs. My favorite Zombie family episode was when Ashley the daughter wanted to be a cheerleader and Fred the son was in a magic show. That too was so funny. I was sad to see this show leave after a few years of watching it. Steven Spielberg did a good job creating this show and him and Toonsylvania deserve 10/10 stars! I hope one day they bring back this show with new episodes or just the good old reruns.
I remember when I used to watch TOONSYLVANIA on Fox on Saturday mornings. I would tape each episode and watch it over and over again. I loved it. I found the show to have a great sense of dark humor that was really unique and couldn't be captured in any other show. It was a fantastic show!
Normally it is wise to avoid anything that has anything what-so-ever to do
with Spielberg. However, this is a delightfull exception (there are
Anyway, the amusingly morbid humor in this show makes me wonder how it could be made in the land of Morality.. It's simply too great to be american kids entertainment.
It's a pity though that I haven't seen all the episodes yet, I discovered it too late.. But when I did, I really fell in love!
