10 Shows From the '90s and Early '00s That Scared the Crap Out of You

Unless they’re sneaking peeks at “American Horror Story” (heaven forbid, seriously), kids today don’t even know how creepy TV can be. Growing up in the ’90s, we were constantly scaring the sh*t out of ourselves on Saturday mornings with shows like “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” and “Goosebumps.” It’s a wonder we ever got a wink of sleep with all the terrifying stories about haunted masks getting stuck to our faces and stuff.

While those two shows are undoubtedly the crown jewels of the creepy kids’ shows, there are several more that you may have forgotten about. Who remembers “Tales From the Crypt,” which ran from 1989 to 1996? Or how about “The New Addams Family” (not to be confused with Netflix’s upcoming Tim Burton-directed “Wednesday” series starring Jenna Ortega)? And then there was also “The Nightmare Room,” which was another “treat” from R.L. Stine, as well as “Courage the Cowardly Dog,” which is hands down one of the creepiest kids’ shows of all time.

If you’re up for it, allow us to take you on a journey of the scariest kids’ shows from the ’90s and the early ’00s. Although you may regret it while tucking yourself in tonight.
