That Time Ryan Gosling Was In 'Are You Afraid Of The Dark?'

Hey girl, stop what you're doing; this is NOT a test.

If you're a 90s kids, you may want to prepare for the best news you'll hear all day. Just in time for the spooky Halloween season, every single episode from the creepy (but oh so glorious) Are You Afraid of the Dark? series is now available for all of your retro viewing on YouTube.

No, you're not dreaming.

You may recall that some of the episodes from the hit show were already streaming on Amazon Prime. But, you can rejoice because they are now all at your fingertips.


Call me crazy but I definitely remember spending most of my childhood trying to prove that I was a total bad ass and that all of the crazy stories told by The Midnight Society didn't affect me at all by watching the episodes alone in the dark. If you're wondering how that story ended, I pretty much lost all of my street cred the minute the crimson clowns and the fire ghost were mentioned.

But enough of that. Let's talk about how totally awesome (and insane) this episode featuring baby Ryan Gosling is (as if we needed another excuse to gush over him):

If you didn't just fall in love with his boyish, albeit creepy charm, you're doing it wrong. So, I don't know about you but I definitely know how I'll be spending my lazy weekends (and every day of the week that ends with a 'y') from here on out. Let the countdown to Halloween begin.


You're welcome.
