Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids

Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids is an animated TV series which originally aired on CITV from 2000 until 2007. It has been repeated to this day. There was also a revival series on NickToons from 2010 until 2011, which had a different animation style.

Every episode is very dark for a children’s TV show, which is one of the reasons I love it. My favourite episode is The Chipper Chums Go Scrumping from 2000, an episode which parodies The Famous Five. At the end of most episodes, a character gets killed. Which is also surprising for a children’s show. I highly suggest you give it a watch on CITV, YouTube or DVD. I have a DVD of the revival series from Poundland.

Nigel Planer does a cracking job as all the characters in the series (I especially like his woman voices)

Here is The Chipper Chums Go Scrumping:
