Differences from the book

  • The episode is simply titled Shocker on Shock Street, instead of A Shocker on Shock Street.
  • The giant praying mantises never appear and neither does the cemetery.
  • The ending is slightly different than in the book. In the book, Erin and Marty are revealed to be robots and Erin's "father", the robots expert takes the two kids back to the lab so he can fix them. In the TV version, it follows the book ending, but adds in an extra scene where the Erin and Marty robots power up and attack Mr. Wright, presumably killing him.
  • In the book, Shock Street is more of a movie franchise. In the television episode, Shocker films is a studio known for monster films with a unified setting, similar to Troma Films, known for setting a majority of its films in the fictitious city of Tromaville.




Shocker on Shock Street has been release on DVD over three times. The 2006 DVD release includes the episode, Click as a bonus.
