This is because dancing numbers and musical numbers were randomly inserted in each episode’s plot. After only 11 seasons, ABC terminated the show because of its critics and commercial failings.

It’s not unreasonable to think that the majority of our youth aren’t aware of Dark Shadows because of Tim Burton’s 2012 film adaptation with Johnny Depp. Naturally, the movie was based on the same gothic soap that aired for a few years on ABC in the 1960s.
Dark Shadows was like a more bizarre Addams Family, with regular characters, zombies, ghosts werewolves, werewolves, time travelers and witches. The show’s small group of performers played different characters.
The worst part is that the show was believed to have been was inspired by a terrifying dream that the creator Dan Curtis had in 1965 which we’ll be happy to ignore for the remainder of our days.

But it quickly became an extremely loved programs ever and also one of the most bizarre TV series ever created. Dark Shadows was a show that was way more avant-garde than its times.

Although Eerie, Indiana may not be scary enough to frighten adults but it was a bit disturbing to witness as a child in the 90s.
Tim Eric and Eric Awesome Show Great Job
Whatever Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim performs together is generally a hit with an extremely specialized audience. It’s either you love their work, or dislike it. In other words you’re either completely insane or a decent member of society (if maybe a little more boring).

The show deserves to be on this list because it’s funny odd, disturbing, and awe-inspiring. What’s not to love? with the two of them? Tim as well as Eric are masters of the hilarious-weird.
The entire program was an subtle, quiet, disturbing fear which made it more thrilling to watch. “jam” was a word that “jam” could never be spoken in the show also, and often was spoken in a loud, incorrect manner or used in conjunction with an unnatural sound effect.
Jam didn’t go over very well in Britain as some viewers calling it sick as well as self-indulgent and problematic. While these terms might be entirely true for Jam but it’s still an extremely radical TV programs that has been aired for over a long period of time.
The dark comedy that was released in 2000 within the United Kingdom was genuinely amazing however, it was subsequently forgotten.

It’s impossible to create an exhaustive list of bizarre TV shows without including Twin Peaks, the creation of Mark Frost and David Lynch in the 1990s early. The serial drama that was slow-burning had the perfect blend of ’90s style, fun comedy, subtly odd language, and awe-inspiring ideas.
A FBI Special Agent named Dale Cooper, one of the most famous characters of the history of television, is sent to investigate the death of a girl identified as Laura Palmer in Twin Peaks. Palmer’s body was found wrapped in plastic and buried in a river bed just outside Twin Peaks. Twin Peaks town.
What follows is his ever strange investigation into the death of Laura and an unsettling realization that nobody is so innocent, as they seem. When the series was canceled after two seasons There were a lot of loose ends. Lynch produced an prequel to the show, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me that recounts the story from the point of view of the mysterious character Laura Palmer.
Twin Peaks will forever be one of the best odd shows of all time and, now that the production for the long-awaited third season is complete The return of the show appears to be a real possibility.
The Mighty Boosh
The British comedy show that may or may not be made into a film, offers an ideal blend of originality, creativity hilarious, funny and even odd.

The two seasons that follow the two working in a secondhand shop run by a tiny shaman from the alien world known as Naboo along with his gorilla pal Bollo and they’re every one of them as weird as they sound.
There are many memorable characters and hilariously quotable moments within this show. The Mighty Boosh is a distinctive kind of comedy as well as it is a unique kind of pure absurdity.
Stories from the Crypt
Nearly everyone recognizes the disgusting decaying mug. Tales from the Crypt was a horror-themed television series which ran through the entirety of the 1990s, and offered many nightmare stories. It’s not just because of the Crypt Keeper why this happens.
The show delivered campy, creepy terror in the most cheesy way it could be. The show was self-aware and didn’t seem to take it too seriously. It was the perfect mix of fun and dreadful fear.
Tales from the Crypt was controversial because of the graphic violence and vulgarity and nudity and sexual actions. HBO bought the show and let it be as contentious as they wanted. Although it has since been redesigned for basic distribution on cable however nothing is as good as the disgusting original.
Due to its horrifically engaging nature and the presence of plots that were as distinct as they were terrifying, Tales from the Crypt is a worthy inclusion at the top of this list. The creepy horrors are not finished after the reboot series has been given the green light from the folks at TNT.
The Twilight Zone
There’s nothing quite as intriguing than watching the ’50s and 1960s-era concepts about what the next decade could be as it is in the present. To be honest, The Twilight Zone is an unsettling, often frightening trip through time as well as a glimpse into the world of cinema in the past.
The gem of Rod Serling also featured several celebrity appearances that made the show more entertaining. George Takei, Robert Redford, Carol Burnett, and Dennis Hopper are a few notable names who were featured in the show. Even the nebulous performers and actors were minimum, which is which isn’t often the case in a show on television.
Despite the show’s dull concept, there’s a good reason why Peppermint Park is included on the list. You only need to watch an episode to realize how strange this was. The look of the show’s puppets veered to the edge of uncanny valley and the voice acting was extremely disturbing.
The show is only available in sporadic clips. show exist , the majority of which can be tracked to on YouTube. It’s comforting knowing that this home video VHS series is now lost and will never return.
As with many shows for children listed on this list Peppermint Park had excellent intentions. But the road to hell is not paved with good intentions as well. Peppermint Park drove directly from hell to the 1990s VHS players’ children’s homes.
This home-based instructional series was a collection of puppets which taught kids about math, spelling animal species, and colours in addition to other things. Many thought that the classes were a weak version that was a weak copy of Sesame Street since they included music and lengthy lectures.
Rabbits David Lynch
This avant-garde horror miniseries is an additional bizarre production by David Lynch, the King of Weird who calls it an improvised sitcom.
Three rabbits with anthropomorphic faces (one of which includes Naomi Watts dressed as a rabbit) reside in a living room. They engage in wildly disjointed non-sequitur conversations with each other while laugh tracks play at random times throughout the episodes in Rabbits. Rabbits’ motto adds to the tension: “In a nameless city covered in drizzle… the three bunnies are surrounded by a terrifying mystery.”
The series is known for its dark atmosphere and the use of light (the entire show was filming in Lynch’s garden in the evening). Rabbits also were used in a psycho-psychological experiment in 2013 to study how acetaminophen impacted existential crisis and how art from the surrealist era affected the characters.

The Outer Limits
The science-fiction anthology series is a cult classic, and nearly everyone is aware of what it has done for the industry of television even five decades more than 55 years later. Rarely does old series are still watched in the modern world, but The Twilight Zone is still just as enjoyable to watch as it was a decade ago.
The show deserves a spot on this list due to its writing of grade A and story telling that ranged from William Shatner’s grandiose acting on an airplane to sweet stories which were still a bit strange.
Outer Limits Outer Limits was the Twilight Zone’s cousin which irritated the director to no end because The little jerk attempted to duplicate everything he did. Even with the criticisms, some episodes didn’t seem like an exact replica from The Twilight Zone and were very entertaining.
Although it is eerily similar to the previous item on the checklist, The Outer Limits deserves to be in this list because of the themes which The Twilight Zone refused to deal with. This show has amazing makeup effects, as well as hand-crafted props (and scary in the moment). To see a sample, watch”The Misfits,” episode “The Zanti Misfits.”
