The House of No Return was originally published in October 1994 (Special Edition Spine #1). The series adaptation aired on Saturday, September 13, 1997 (runtime: 22 minutes).

Out of all the popular Universal monsters, werewolves may have appeared the most often in ‘90s children’s literature. There was something about these hirsute creatures of the night that appealed to young readers back then.

Of all the many Fear Street stories he’s written, author R. L. Stine managed to narrow his personal favorites down to eight books.

With the success of both Fear Street and Goosebumps in the early ‘90s, it only made sense to combine them into one series. And R. L. Stine’s Ghosts of Fear Street is essentially that.
