Aaahh!!! Real Monsters
While Monsters, Inc. did its best to make the creatures under your bed seem “cute,” the creators of Aaahh!!! Real Monsters were all about making the monsters appear as creepy as you had imagined them to be in your nightmares. There was Krumm, the hairy monster who carried his eyeballs around due to a lack of eye sockets, Oblina, a sophisticated snake-like creature that regurgitated her organs, and Ickis, the leader of the bunch who came off small, but could grow into a real beast. Even if the main character didn’t exactly creep you out, the fact that they lived in a New York City dump was enough to give you a case of the heebie-jeebies.
