Writers William Fruet
, Billy Brown
and Dan Angel
, who had all worked on Goosebumps
(1995), also worked on another Scholastic TV series filmed in Ontario, called Animorphs
(1998), where they recycled much of their material from Goosebumps, including filming locations like the Hearn Generating Station in Toronto. Season 2, E02 of Animorphs featured a character listening to an advertisement for "Karl's Lemonade" on the radio, which plays the exact same advertisement jingle used on Goosebumps in the first part of the Season 3 "Chillogy" collection titled "Squeal of Fortune". Soundtrack cues were sometimes recycled from the Goosebumps series into the Animorphs background soundtrack, and so were some background character outfits and actors, most of whom were Canadian, for example Ian D. Clark, who played antagonist Compton Dawes on season 2 of Goosebumps. Animorphs, much like Goosebumps, had been a successful book series in the 1990's, but unlike Goosebumps, the television adaptation of Animorphs was short-lived and not very popular due to its outdated special effects. Both shows were sometimes aired on the same channels together during 1999 in some countries. See more
