The Campfire Episode 3: The Tale of The Hungry Hounds and The Tale of The Super Specs (35 min)


Gather around The Campfire this week to hear reviews on episodes 5 and 6 of “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” The Tale of the Hungry Hounds (Season 1, Episode 5: Original Air Date: September 12th, 1992) and The Tale of the Super Specs (Season 1, Episode 6 Original Air Date: September 19, 1992).

In The Tale of the Hungry Hounds, Two cousins go to an attic where one of them tries on a uniform that belonged to a dead aunt who has some unfinished business with a few hound dogs and a fox.

Richard becomes a spokesman for Nickelodeon Home VHS industry a few years too late.

In the Tale of The Super Specs, Weeds, a prankster, buys his girlfriend Marybeth a pair of super spec glasses as part of his April’s Fool Day collection. Once she puts on the glasses, strange figures appear and can’t be explained.

Nik has an existential crisis over the meanings of life and parallel universes.

Join us on an episode that deals with high concepts and leaves us all feeling just a little bit out of touch with reality… or perhaps more in touch.
