TV Series
    (June 10, 1989-July 19, 1996)
    Aired on HBO
    Crypt Keeper voiced by John Kassir
    Designed by Kevin Yagher
    Premise: Old comic-book horror stories modernized
    Many horror fans consider it campy and overly comedic.
    It was fixated on dumb puns ('Hello, boils and ghouls!' 'That's one sure way to get A HEAD!' etc.).
    Doing the Crypt Keeper's shrieking voice was hard on John Kassir's throat.
    While the Crypt Keeper character was a great idea, he later became a comparison for wrinkled people (i.e. Don Imus).
    It inspired two motion pictures, 'Demon Knight' and 'Bordello of Blood.'
    It also inspired the forgettable Saturday morning ABC cartoon, 'Tales from the Cryptkeeper' (1993).
    It was an affectionate homage to the horror comics of the 1950's.
    Famous film composer Danny Elfman wrote the theme music.
    It didn't take itself too seriously.
    It was a fresh idea for a series, and one of HBO's top series.
    It won three Motion Picture Sound Editors awards, and was nominated for several Emmys.
    Its guest stars included Brad Pitt, Joe Pesci, Kirk Douglas and Whoopi Goldberg.
