Added DiffLines:

* OffModel: Surpisingly often during the first two seasons. Largely with either flickering colors in areas or, as can be seen during "This Wraps it Up" and "Game Over", parts of characters being cut off just before the edge of the frame.

** An episode of the third season had a boy accuse monsters instead of a dog. Being an AnimatedAdaptation of TalesFromTheCrypt, that episode actually had monsters who ate homework. When two showed up at the boy's home, the boy said another monster showed up before and ate it. The monsters then took the boy to their home dimension to find the monster the boy described. When the boy eventually confessed he didn't do the homework, the monsters took the boy home and forced him to do his homework, present it to school, and ask the teacher to make two copies for the monsters to eat.

* SarcasmBlind: Deconstructed with Mr. Klump in "All the gory Details", to the point where he just can't take a hint at how [[TheScrappy annoying]] he is.
---> '''Mr.Klump:''' If I knew you were going to drop [the luggage], I wouldn't have let you carry it!
---> '''Sally:''' [[SarcasmMode I guess that's what happens when you let a skirt do a man's job.]]
---> '''Mr.Klump:''' You can say that again.

An animated spin-off of ''Series/TalesFromTheCrypt'' that ran for three seasons. The first two were on Creator/{{ABC}} from 1993 to 1994, the last on Creator/{{CBS}} from 1999 to 2000. Unlike its live-action counterpart, ''Cryptkeeper'' usually had kids as the heroes in its stories; therefore, most of the stories had to lack blood and gore, with a horror factor that was more akin to ''Literature/{{Goosebumps}}'' and usually having an aesop. During the second season, the show brought in Cryptkeeper's co-{{Horror Host}}s from the comics, the Old Witch and the Vault Keeper, who would usually try to steal the spotlight away from the Cryptkeeper.

* AnAesop: As it was a kids' show, this was pretty mandatory.
** This was even truer in the third season (thanks to new FCC rules calling for more educational TV shows for kids), to the point where it became {{Anvilicious}}.

Each episode usually ended with one. This was even truer as taken further in the third season (thanks to new FCC rules calling for more educational TV shows for kids), to the point where it became {{Anvilicious}}.

* ReTool: Season 1 was pretty faithful to the format of the live-action series - a story bookended by Crypt Keeper segments taking place in his old house. For Season 2, {{EC Comics}}' other horror hosts (the Old Witch and the Vault Keeper) were added as antagonists - each bent on stealing the show. This prompted the Crypt Keeper to leave his house and "take the show on the road," with his segments taking place in different locales and him being pestered by the competition. Season 3 dropped the Old Witch and the Vault Keeper and instead had the Crypt Keeper a part of the stories (usually setting them in motion). And while the preceding two seasons contained aesops, Season 3 was arguably more {{Anvilicious}} (with one plot revolving around teaching a boy the importance of reading).
