[Video] Ranking All 62 Original ‘Goosebumps’ Covers!

If you grew up in the ’90s, chances are you’re a fan of the children’s horror novels Goosebumps, by R.L. Stine. The Goosebumps series was a big part of many horror fanatics’ childhoods. If you’re like me, you enrolled at Horror High with Goosebumps and graduated with Stephen King.

The Goosebumps cover art, sometimes even more so than the actual stories, fueled my imagination for horror. The covers, illustrated by Tim Jacobus, had a perfect blend of color, creepiness, and even humor. I would spend countless hours trying to draw the various covers and even tried to create versions of my own.

Goosebumps holds a special place in my heart, as the books were my initial introduction into horror. Below you’ll see my personal ranking of every Goosebumps cover from worst to best!



  • JohnnyVoorhees

    Awesome. Would love to see a ranking of the Fear Street covers!

    • REC03

      omg yes! please do this BD!

  • A2VL

    The top 2 in this list are indeed the best covers of the series.

  • Jack Derwent

    Really sucks how they replaced the art for these on the new editions.

  • Stefan Heikel

    I’m pretty sure Night of the Living Dummy is everyone’s favorite lol

  • I never liked the US art, always preferred the ones we had here in the UK where the pictures were climbing out of some kind of bubbling goo. They were all matching but different colours so they looked great on the shelf and a lot creepier

  • David Tucker

    Bloody Disgusting has been LOVING those Animoto templates…

    • John Squires
