Fun little fairy tale like of a strange and adorable creature!
28 March 2019 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

This "AS" episode from season 2 Nov. of 1986 called "The Greibble" is one that's strange and a different little tale that proves the imagination can come to life! The tale involves Joan Simmons(Hayley Mills) as a harried and hurried stressed mom who as a house keeper is up to her ears in dust and cleaning. So one day when she sends her son away to school, upon throwing away and going thru his toys, comics, and kids books a strange thing happens. One of the children book characters comes to life! All of a sudden on this wet rainy storm like day a new giant floppy big eared creature appears inside the house! And this big thing called "Greibble" has a big and very hungry stomach as it eats everything! Also it wreaks havoc and tears up everything only it befriends Joan later. Wow good fantasy like fairy tale from director Joe Dante(from "Gremlins" fame) which proves that a kids storybook can come to life!
