My name is Jenny Marie & I am currently in college studding video and multimedia design. I love crafting, cooking and creating new projects!

  1. Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Aww the memories, Are You Afraid of the Dark was a kids show on nick in the 90s. This story is centered around a group of kids in the Midnight Society. They meet in the woods at midnight and they tell stories. However, the cameras soon leaves the storyteller and switch to the tale being told. This happens to be at the top of the list due to the disturbing fact that a group of kids meet in the woods at midnight start a fire and tell ghost stories.

2. Goosebumps

Goosebumps is pretty well known today. But back in the 90s this show offered up some pretty creepy stories with dummies, gnomes and werewolves. This show is based on R.L. Stine's book series and is down right creepy. One specific episode that scarred me mentally was the “Night of the Living Dummy II.” In this episode Amy receives a replacement ventriloquist dummy named Slappy, who she accidentally brings to life. If your brave enough watch the episode below and see the disturbing horror of Slappy.

3. Eerie, Indiana

Eerie, Indiana was on the Disney Channel when I was a kid and only had 19 episodes. This series is about a kid named Marshall as he moves to Eerie, Indiana and he makes friends with Simon. This town was strange, its called Eerie for crying out-loud! Together, they are faced with wired adventures, which include discovering a menacing group of smart dogs that are planning on taking over the world.

4. Salute Your Shorts

Salute Your Shorts was another show on nick in the 90s that followed kids at summer camp. This series lasted from 1991 to 1992 and it was based on the book Salute Your Shorts: Life at Summer Camp by Steve Slavkin and Thomas Hill. This show offered various stories such as Sarah Madre, the old dance counselor who tragically cha-chaed off a cliff years ago and my most terrifying gosht story of Zeke the Plumber. Seriously this story gave me nightmares and instilled my life long fears of plungers (which my brother would chase me around the house with as a kid). Let me know in the comments below what you favorite 90s show was!
