Goosebumps is a Canadian-American horror anthology television series based on the best-selling book series of the same name by author R.L. Stine. The series ran for four seasons from 1995 to 1998 on Fox Kids, and was later rebroadcast on ABC and Disney Channel. Each episode featured a different anthology of stories adapted from the various Goosebumps books.
The series was highly successful and achieved high ratings, with some episodes even reaching the top of the weekly Nielsen ratings. The episodes featured various creatures, monsters, and ghouls, which often wreaked havoc on the protagonists.

The series spawned a spin-off series titled Goosebumps 2000, which ran from 1998 to 2000. It featured an anthology of stories adapted from various Goosebumps books, as well as original stories. The series was much darker in tone than its predecessor and explored more mature themes, such as the environment and the consequences of certain behaviors.
