Creepy, but never gory or excessively frightening, common subjects included haunted houses, what goes on behind the neighbor's walls, and other things that go bump in the night. Edit Trivia At the beginning of the first episode of Season 3, “The Tale of the Midnight Ride”, Gary announces that Kristen and David's families have moved away.

External links Website The series premiered with the episode “The Tale of the Twisted Claw” as a pilot on October 31, 1990, on the Canadian television network YTV and aired until June 11, 2000. The pilot aired on Nickelodeon on October 25, 1991, as part of a Halloween special.

The first revival series, with new directors, writers, and a cast, was produced by Nickelodeon from 1999 to 2000 and also aired on the SNICK block. The sole member from the original lineup to return for the first and second seasons of the revival was Tucker (Daniel Delano), although Gary (Ross Hull) returned for the concluding show, which notably broke from the show's established format by blurring the line between story and “reality”.

Revolved around a group of teenagers who referred to themselves as “The Midnight Society”. Every episode, at a secret location in the woods at night, one member would tell a scary story to the group.

The actual story, rather than the telling, was displayed to the television viewer. The story was shown between the group's arrival at the site and their departure.

The storyteller would continue by announcing its title (The Tale of...). The themes of the stories usually revolve around a variety of paranormal phenomena, such as demons, ghosts, magic, haunted houses, magical curses, aliens, witches, vampires, werewolves, and the like coming into contact with average youths.

Usually, the episodes were either filmed in the woods, in abandoned houses, or in public places like schools or libraries. For example, the episode “The Tale of the Twisted Claw” is an adaptation of W. W. Jacobs short story, The Monkey's Paw.

Sometimes, the stories were inspired by a certain event in the life of the storyteller. In the episode “The Tale of the Crimson Clown,” for instance, Tucker blackmailed his brother Gary with a poem he had found, which Gary had written for Samantha.

Gary then told a story in which a naughty younger brother was punished cruelly for his evil deeds. At the end of the episode, Tucker gave the poem back to his brother.

The majority of the horror stories on Are Afraid of the Dark ? At the end of most episodes, one character (usually Gary in the first run and Tucker in the second run of the show) would throw a red bucket of water onto the fire, stating, “I declare this meeting of the Midnight Society closed”, and the group would leave the campsite, thus ending the storytelling.

Sometimes, the story would be related to an event (e.g. in “The Tale of Laughing in the Dark, ” Kristen, who was afraid of clowns, ran off when Eric put on a clown mask. This would cause either Gary or Tucker to hurriedly dump the water on the fire, and the Midnight Society would run off to wherever they go after meetings.

Each member of the Midnight Society from 1991 to 1996 has a distinct personality, and a notable trend in their storytelling. Though not all of their stories have similar styles and plots, in many of the stories, each character carries a unique aspect that reflects the nature of the storyteller, and what they find to be the most important to themselves.

In the second generation, the characters derive their stories more from events that happen during the days leading up to the society meetings instead of from their personal interests and views. Many of the later episodes were simply given to a random society member to tell.

His stories have the recurring character “Sarto” in them; most of his stories have the main character buying an enchanted item from Sarto's shop. In the 3-part episode, “The Tale of the Silver Sight”, Gary reveals that his grandfather was the founder of the Midnight Society and that it was his grandfather's stories that inspired him to recreate the group.

Betty Ann: A vibrant girl who has an open and eager passion for the bizarre and twisted. Her stories often include themes where an alien or supernatural force is either trying to break into the world of the characters, or else trying to drag them into their own unnatural realms.

Her stories tend to have twists reminiscent of Twilight Zone episodes, hinting that the protagonists of her stories have not yet escaped danger by the end. Kiki: A spunky, tomboyish girl who often makes fun of others.

Also, notable is that many the characters in her stories are also of African descent (likely due to Kiki herself being African-Canadian), though the trend dies off later on in the series. One story she came up with had to be read by Gary due to her suffering from laryngitis at the time.

In season five, he and his family moved away, and he was replaced in the group by Sting. Tucker: Gary's younger brother and the youngest member of the Midnight Society.

Due to his age, he is often portrayed as youthfully obnoxious. His stories tend to involve family relationships that are at first sour but grow in strength in the face of adversity, possibly reflecting his relationship with his brother Gary.

There is also a running theme of the characters accidentally unleashing evil upon their world. After Gary left, he took over his place as the president of The Midnight Society.

Once Tucker is in charge, he is less of a brat and more of a serious leader like his older brother. He is the only character to appear in both generations of The Midnight Society.

Sam: A shy girl with an obvious mutual crush on Gary, which becomes one of the highlighted arcs of both their developments in the series. Reflecting this affection for Gary, Sam's stories tend to have more of a strong theme of love, and its endurance even beyond death.

Kristen: A girl who, though squeamish about much else, has a fondness for ghost stories and fairy tales. She has a growing crush on David, and their affection for each other is a developing arc in the first few seasons.

She loves to dress up for her stories or bring something for effect, sometimes to scare the others with and her stories almost always deal with ghosts from the past whom have unfinished business that they cannot complete without the aid of the living. In season 3, she left The Midnight Society due to her and her family moving.

David: A quiet boy with a mysterious expression. Reflecting his introverted nature and need to deal with his crush on Kristen, David's stories tend to be less about malignant outside forces, and more to do with the evil of past events left unresolved, or the darkness inside normal people, and the consequences of not dealing with their actions.

Sting: His nickname may come from the term stigma, as he is marked an outsider for his notable lack of hygiene. Sting is the last member to be initiated into this generation of The Midnight Society.

Due to the aversion people seem to have against him for his looks, both of his stories seem to revolve around outsiders judged for their appearances and/or tastes. As he has only had two stories in the first season before his character was cut, there is no visible theme in his storytelling, but they seem to be about incredibly powerful evil forces (ones never proven innocent or misunderstood like some others).

In his short run on the show, Eric was shown to be rather snide and negative, spending most of the time making sarcastic remarks and antagonizing the other members, especially Frank. He is the only character to leave the show without any explanation for his departure.

Several years after the last meeting of The Midnight Society, Tucker returns to reinitialize the meetings, inviting his own circle of friends to reform The Midnight Society. Quinn: Quinn is usually getting in trouble at school and at home, but he is a smart kid that likes to make fun of Andy teamed up with Range.

Quinn's stories have little in common though usually involve the protagonists' actions unleashing or bringing them face-to-face with the villain. Teamed up with Quinn she makes fun of Andy a lot.

Range's stories have little in common though most seem to be about how wanting something too badly can cause the main character to play into the villain's hands. He is always being made fun of by Quinn and Range for having more muscle than brains.

Andy's stories have little in common but are often about how characters' dark sides can unleash evil. Usually, the inspiration for his stories are based on his own real-life personal experiences.

She would rather hold the New Midnight Society Meetings in her own well-managed backyard. Tucker, not being the stickler his brother was, lets Megan refurnish the campfire with some comfortable old couches.

Megan's stories have little in common though most seem to somehow involve romance. Sometimes she brings a prop or starts a brief game relating to her story.

One of the more significant recurring characters was Sarto (Richard Dumont), owner of “Sarto's Magic Mansion” (a magic shop). He would often attempt to sell a character a “prized” item, succeeding almost every single time.

He often had items in his shop that contained real properties of magic, yet did not know until it was revealed in the story. One of the most memorable recurring jokes in the series occurred when someone would address him as “Mr.

Additionally, when selling someone an item, he would often ask a rather high price. Although he rarely got what he wanted, he would often end up helping the characters, often unintentionally.

Another recurring character was Dr. Link (Aron Eager). He was a physically imposing man who would often appear as a mad scientist, sorcerer, and the like.

Unlike Sarto, whose character was set in a magic shop, Dr. Link had many 'unique endeavors' as he called them, for his stories. These ranged from living deep in the woods conducting strange nature experiments, being a retired filmmaker, owning his own restaurant as head chef and lastly a barbershop.

His activities were usually villainous, designed to put the characters in peril and allow him the last laugh. However, in his last appearance, “The Tale of Cutter's Treasure” (which was told by both Frank and Gary), he allied himself with Sarto and the main characters without his usual maliciousness.

Aron Eager also played the carnival worker who stands in front of the Fun house and invites people to go inside in the episode “The Tale of the Laughing in the Dark “. The character of Zero the Clown, also played by Eager, who appeared in “The Tale of the Laughing in the Dark is referenced in several other stories, for example, in the episode “The Tale of the Whispering Walls”, two children mention seeing him at a fun park, in the episode “The Tale of the Mystical Mirror”, a girl says she will look like Zero if she wears too much lipstick, and in the episode “The Tale of the Crimson Clown” in the boys' room a video game called Zero's Big House can be seen on the desk with a picture of Zero on it as the title character.

The video game was also mentioned in the episode “The Tale of Train Magic.” Finally, in the episode “The Tale of the Night Shift,” the teenage janitor is called Zero by his supervisor a few times at the beginning of the episode.

The villain, the “Ghastly Grinder” (star of “The Tale of the Ghastly Grinder”), like Zero the Clown, appears in a comic book that Dark characters read. In addition, episodes of the series were included on two compilation tapes of SNICK programming, both of which were released on August 31, 1993; “The Tale of the Lonely Ghost” was included on Nick Snicks Friendship, and “The Tale of the Hungry Hounds” was included on Nick Snicks the Family.
