Horror-themed channel FEARnet will be bringing two of the most popular horror-themed cartoons from our childhood with the airing of Tales from the Cryptkeeper and The Real Ghostbusters starting on Saturday, Aug. 18 at 10AM during a specially created Funhouse Block. The two hour weekend programming block will also include other horror-themed shows such as Eerie, Indiana and Dark Oracle.
“While some cable networks are extremely successful in targeting the adult audience with animated content blocks in late night,” FEARnet president and general manager Peter Block said. “We decided to go a different route and provide our viewers with the ability to enjoy programming in a time period that harkens back to weekend mornings of their youth. Moreover, Funhouse opens doors to new advertising opportunities due to the programming content.”
Produced by DIC and Columbia Pictures TV, The Real Ghostbusters aired from 1986-91 and was created by Ghostbusters feature stars Dan Akyroyd and Harold Ramis and features a voice cast that included Maurice LaMarche, Frank Welker, Lorenzo Music and Arsenio Hall. It will air Saturdays at 10 a.m.
