Greetings earwigs and earworms, Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat with another special treat for you today on day 28 of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. We have something for you to listen to instead of just read as I join our own Elwood Jones as well as Daniel Lackey for their new podcast venture TV Good, Sleep Bad where each month they take a look at a couple episodes of cult television. This is only the third episode, but I think they’re off to a great start and they will also be sharing their episodes here on this site so if you like what you hear then come back every month for a new episode. Here we get a little bit animated as we discuss the pilot of the animated spin-off series Tales From the Cryptkeeper as well as a chilling episode that may or may not have inspired 30 Days of Night where it’s not for over a month before it Comes the Dawn.
So with this month here at Channel Superhero being dedicated to “Tales From The Crypt” we felt it was only right that this latest edition also took advantage of this opportunity to look back at the classic series, let alone indulge our Michael Ironside obsession. At the same time we look at the cartoon spin off “Tales From The Cryptkeeper” which was just one show in a slew of teen horror shows which populated the early 90’s such as “Are You Afraid of The Dark” and “Goosebumps”.
All this plus we talk Superhero TV and its current landscape, question what’s wrong with “Gotham” and discuss the horror films which bizarrely spawned cartoon versions.
