Genuinely cheesy but somewhat spooky!.
23 November 2008 | by insomniac_rodSee all my reviews

Damn it how could I forgot about this sui generis cartoon show? I completely loved it because of many unique aspects like the goofy but spooky opening song, the creepy but naive looking characters, and the situations that deal with beyond the grave things.

Rick Moranis stars among plenty of monsters involving goblins, pumpkins, the Frankenstein monster, vampires, and more. All of them involved with extremely cheesy situations that somehow have a spooky feeling on them.

Also, the jokes were pretty clever and witty. I don't know if this show was oriented for children but I'm pretty sure it could be enjoyed by a wider audience including teenagers and young adults.

Please give it a chance to "Gravedale High" and have a blast with it! I never forget about the funny and dark moments it gave to me.
