‘Aaahh!!! Real Monsters‘ was a personal favorite of mine growing up. As far as classic Nickelodeon cartoons went, for my money it was ‘Ren And Stimpy’ and ‘Aaahh!!! Real Monsters’ that caught my fancy. Both shows were uniquely bizarre and perfect in their own ways. There weren’t too many “horror” related cartoons coming out at the time. So, ‘Real Monsters’ had (and still has) a special place in my heart.
Artist and SYFY Channel Face Off contestant, Kevon Ward shares that love and then some. His sculpts of the ‘Real Monsters’ gang are pretty breathtaking. This is exactly what these little dudes would look like if they existed outside of two-dimensions. I mean, the detail on these sculpts are fantastic!
The series ran from 94′ – 97′ and featured a group of young monsters (Ickis, Oblina, Krumm) attending monster school to learn how to scare people. It heavily relied on gross-out humor. The same kind of gross-out humor that Nickelodeon was known for at the time.
I am hoping that one day we get these sculpts as actual collectible figures, that way we can have our own Monsters running around our houses. Until then make sure to check out Wards other works.
