Petition to The people of the world who enjoy Goosebumps, R.L. Stine, The CEO of Netflix

Keep Goosebumps on Netflix

I've always been a fan of Goosebumps ever since I was a young boy in daycare who saw The Haunted Mask: Part One for the first time and was unable to sleep through the night for a whole week. In that regard, Goosebumps means a lot to me. I attribute a lot of my fears growing up to Goosebumps, and as a young adult I have managed to overcome these fears and watch it regularly to prove a point to myself. This year, Netflix decided to spring on us citizens of the world, the day after the spookiest night of the year, that they are planning on removing Goosebumps from Netflix on November 19th, 2018. I will not stand for this. Goosebumps is far too important from a cultural standpoint, as I believe it has inspired many of the horror classics from the 2000's as well as the 2006 Adam Sandler movie titled "Click". In a world where people stand divided on almost every facet of life, I believe that we the people can stand together on the fact that Goosebumps is one of the single greatest television shows of all time. R.L. Stine, if you are reading this, I will not allow your life's crown achievement to be silenced by the executives at Netflix. We must band together. How else will I watch classic episodes like "My Hairiest Adventure" or "The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight"?  I appreciate anyone who signs this, as every backer helps. Us Goosebumps aficionados are a vocal community that will not stand to be stifled. P.S. I would like to point out that the 2015 Goosebumps movie starring Jack Black is underrated and very tastefully pays homage to the books and television series. P.P.S. I wasn't kidding, Adam Sandler's "Click" is literally based off a Goosebumps episode with the same name. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about that but I've come to terms in my old age that I can accept it as part of the Goosebumps Cinematic Universe. P.P.P.S. Even if you don't watch Goosebumps can you still sign this? I looked up how much it will cost to buy all the DVD's and I'm not sure if I'm ready to commit to that just yet. P.P.P.P.S. I am the singer of a very successful indie band called "Courtesy Wave" which has 50 concurrent monthly listeners on Spotify. If this petition reaches 100 signatures, Courtesy Wave will cover the Goosebumps theme song and release it for free download to all of our supporters. I don't try to involve my band with politics, but sometimes enough is enough.
