Watch Tales From the Cryptkeeper

Tales from the Cryptkeeper is a horror anthology series. It is animated and aimed at children, so it is less scary than other horror anthology series. Many of the episodes feature classic horror and campfire stories or are a retelling of classic stories with horror twist. Each story is introduced by the Cryptkeeper, a terrifying character who appears in many of the episodes. In later episodes more emphasis is placed on the educational nature of the series, as requirements for children's programming changed, and the later episodes all feature some kind of moral or lesson, as opposed to earlier episodes where the moral was ambiguous.
