Home video releases

Main article: Aaahh!!! Real Monsters videography

Sony Wonder released two VHS tapes of the show, Meet the Monsters and Monsters' Night Out, in August 1995. The tapes each contained three regular-length episodes (or in the case of the latter tape, one half-hour episode and one regular-length episode). These two tapes were re-released after the license moved to Paramount Home Video, with two extra episodes added on each of them. The show did not receive any more VHS releases in the US, but at least four more tapes were released in the United Kingdom.

The first season was released as a manufacture-on-demand DVD set exclusively sold on on August 10, 2010, with the later three seasons following on December 1st of the same year. Just a few months later, however, the video license for Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, among other Nicktoons, was given to Shout! Factory, who re-released the four season sets from October 2011 to June 2014 (though the final season was included early in a "Complete Series" set in October 2013).
