Gravedale high title card

Gravedale High (also known as Rick Moranis in Gravedale High) is a 1990 Animated TV series produced by Hanna-Barbera for NBC Productions (the latter owns all rights to the series). The show centers around the character of Max Schneider, a Human teacher who mistakenly takes a job teaching students at an all monster school. This character was voiced by Rick Moranis who had stared in Ghostbusters, and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids before taking on this role which was created as an animated vehicle for his career. He would latter appear in 1994's live action adaptation of the Flintstones. Gravedale High premiered on NBC on September 8, 1990 where it would air thirteen episodes over the course of one season before it's original run ended on December 1 of the same year.

Overview Edit

The show revolves around the misadventures of human teacher Max Schneider who has unwittingly taken a job at Gravedale High, a school for monsters, near the city of Midtown. Schneider, the only human in the school, presides over a group of ghoulish teenagers that are latest-generation versions of classic movie monsters (many of which had appeared in movies from Universal, coincidentally enough).

Most are either disruptive, uninterested, and/or unduly self-preoccupied in school, and the class is generally considered disreputable if not uncontrollable (not unlike "the Sweathogs" in Welcome Back, Kotter), the implication being Schneider was hired to teach the class because no monster teacher would take the job.

The actual "town" of Gravedale is occasionally seen and consists primarily of multiple cemeteries, including the Eastside Cemetery and the Midtown Mausoleum. It can thus arguably be considered a "suburb" of Midtown, although few humans seem to know of its existence. In addition to the students' homes, it is known to include a doctor's office (which is run by a medical version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as seen in "Fear of Flying") and a literal body shop, where people can purchase parts to assemble monsters. The existence of a charitable organization known as the United Monster Fund (dedicated to helping schools like Gravedale High "around the world") indicates Gravedale is part of an entire monster subculture.
