Tales From The Crypt: The Complete Series DvD Box Set
The show starting in 1989 is remembered fondly enough and the cryptkeeper is the stuff of legend, we all know him, and even passing TV fans have all seen him. A very iconic presenter, if just a puppet.
In 1999, the show was revived on CBS for an additional 13 episodes under the title " New Tales from the Cryptkeeper." Due to new U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations that demanded more educational value in cartoons, the final batch of episodes was radically dumbed-down and included much more streamlined morality lessons. Although it was once again produced by Nelvana and the opening credits sequence featured clips from the ABC series, the style of the animation underwent a substantial change, with characters appearing much more rounded and cartoon-like. The Vaultkeeper and The Old Witch were omitted, and the Cryptkeeper generally appeared in disguise interacting with characters throughout each episode.
