Listen as Mike and Jeromy discuss an G rated cartoon based on an R rated Live Action TV show that ran concurrently.
Tales from the Cryptkeeper is an animated series aimed at children made by Nelvana Limited. It was shown on YTV in Canada and on ABC in the United States. In Canada, it still airs re-runs near Halloween on Teletoon. It was based on the live-action television show, Tales from the Crypt, which aired concurrently on HBO. Tales from the Cryptkeeper was aimed at children and this series was significantly milder than the live-action HBO version and all blood and gore were completely omitted in order to target the audience.
Most of the episodes take place within the fictional city of Gravenhurst, California, with a population of 55,232 people (this is established in episode #10 - "The Gorilla's Paw")
The series was cancelled on December 10, 1994. In 1999, the show returned to the air as New Tales from the Cryptkeeper. The animation was different from that of the previous episodes and it switched over to Teletoon in Canada, and also switched to CBS in the United States.
