Aaahh!!! Real Monsters (unaired/unreleased pilot of animated series; early 1990s)
|One of the only known screenshots.|
Aaahh!!! Real Monsters was an animated series that aired on Nickelodeon from October 1994 until December 1997.
Sometime before the show premiered, the show's production company, Klasky-Csupo, made a pitch pilot for the series. Not much is known from the pilot aside that The Gromble's name was The Womble, and was eventually changed due to confusion with another series called The Wombles that was airing around the time of the show's debut.
The pilot followed the same storyline as the show's first aired episode The Switching Hour, but it is unknown how many changes were made between the final version of that episode and the unaired pilot. It is also unknown if it was a short, 11-minute episode (like most of the aired episodes of the show), or was like The Switching Hour and was in 2 parts to fill out the 22-minute running time.
No footage is available, and all that exists are at least three low-quality screenshots. It can be assumed that the episode was made in lesser quality than the aired episodes.
