For those who grew up loving Goosebumps and Are You Afraid of the Dark?, I have some good news. If you yourself have kids now, get ready to scare the crap out of them the very same way. The Hollywood Reporter today broke news of Barry Yourgrau's popular and acclaimed series of children's horror stories, NASTYbooks, getting turned into a series for Cartoon Network.
Composed of a combination of live-action and CGI, the series will be created by Worldwide Biggies, the company responsible for Nickelodeon's The Naked Brothers Band. Described as a sort of "Twilight Zone for kids", it's hosted by a creepy and mysterious character whose actions are intertwined with the stories he introduces.
Check out that cover blurb--Neil Gaiman, no small potatoes. Remind me to add these to the kids' Christmas/Hannukah list.
