TV.com summary

Tales from the Cryptkeeper was an animated series aimed at children made by Canada's Nelvana in association with The Geffen Film Company and Warner Brothers and aired on the ABC network on Saturday mornings in the U.S. It was based off the live-action show, Tales from the Crypt which aired on HBO at the time. Season Two featured the VaultKeeper and the Old Witch. The series was cancelled on December 10, 1994. In 1997, the show returned as The New Tales from the Cryptkeeper on CBS for one season. The animation was different from the two seasons that aired on ABC. Also, the episodes of the animated cartoons were significantly toned down from the comics and the live action TV show as the cartoons were geared for children. One episode dealt with a girl who is jealous of her little sister getting a doll and attempts to steal it from her, then is haunted by nightmares of the doll chasing after her. The nightmares stop when she learns the sinfulness of envy. Image File history File links Broom_icon. ...
