With the Jack Black Goosebumps film right around the corner, this news should come as no surprise. On October 14th, 2015 Via Vision Entertainment out of Australia will be releasing all 68 episodes of the 90’s Goosebumps television show on one 12-disc DVD set. No word yet on whether or not the series will be getting this kind of treatment in the US, but it’s good to know there are options out there. This looks to be Region 4 so you would need to have an all region player to watch this set. Currently you can pre-order the set from JB Hi-Fi for $89.98 AUD which is roughly $63.00 USD, which means you’d be paying less than a dollar per episode. Not too shabby.
Premiering in 1995 Goosebumps became the highest rating children’s TV show for three straight years in the United States. It was eventually broadcast in over 100 countries including Australia. With book sales eclipsing 300 million, the TV show brings to life popular titles in the series such as The Haunted Mask and Cuckoo Clock of Doom. Starring Kathryn Short as Sabrina Mason and Cody Jones as Noah Caldwell with RL Stine appearing as the host, Goosebumps uses its anthology format to tell tall tales of comic book masked mutants coming to life, spectre haunted auditoriums, eerie forsaken beach caves, modern parables of cursed genies granting three wishes, midnight scarecrows, totalitarian reality police and revenge plans for school bullies gone awry.
