* BizarroEpisode:
** "If the Shoe Fits". ''And that's saying something''.
** "Barter", which is essentially half "Tales" goodness and half "ILoveLucy".
* CrazyAwesome: The mummy in "The Grave Robbers". [[spoiler: When he challenges the robbers to a game of [[ChessWithDeath poker]] he outsmarts them by ''counting the cards'' the whole time. The mummy is freed after winning the game and [[KarmicTwistEnding places the robber in his position as the cursed guardian of the tomb.]] For extra points the mummy also takes his girlfriend.]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse: The mummy from the episode "The Grave Robbers" is well liked for being a CrazyAwesome AffablyEvil MagnificentBastard. The fact that he's played by TopCat also helps.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** "Love Hungry" is about this lady who buys a magic hearing aid and pair of glasses as a weight loss treatment and begins to see and hear her food talking to her, that episode aired in 1988, 21 years later we got WebVideo/TheAnnoyingOrange, even funnier, two of the fruits she made friends with were an apple and a pear making this even funnier.
** "The Grave Robbers" is about a mummy fighting against people who stole from his tomb. The mummy would eventually regain his human side, his only cherished memory is that of a girl in his past who he lost, [[spoiler: and he gained an interest in the main protagonists love interest because she resembled the woman he loved.]]. A few years later ''Film/TheMummy1999'' was made and introduced a character with the same story. [[spoiler: However, that mummy was unsuccessful at the end of his story, while the one in ''Tales'' won.]]
** "A New Lease On Life" wouldn't be the last horror anthology episode with [[Series/TheHauntingHour an evil building haunting an innocent protagonist.]]
* JerkassWoobie: Both protagonists in "Snip, Snip."
* MagnificentBastard: The Mummy in "The Grave Robbers" [[spoiler: successfully pulls a BatmanGambit and traps the DirtyCoward {{Jerkass}} in the tomb forever. [[KarmicTwistEnding Now the robber takes the mummy's place as the cursed guardian of the tomb.]] To make it all the more sweeter, the mummy gets to be free and [[KickTheSonOfABitch takes the robber's girlfriend.]] TheBadGuyWins ending has never been so epic.]]
* MoralEventHorizon:
** [[spoiler:[[BitchInSheepsClothing Linda]]]] in "Parlour Floor Front" crosses it by [[spoiler: Killing her cat, lying that her unborn child was killed by a curse, and causing [[TheWoobie Mars]] to be DrivenToSuicide. This was all to get Mars to move out of her apartment building because she disliked him. She suffers a KarmicTwistEnding for her cruelty.]]
** Gale's landlord from "Inside the Closet" passes it when [[spoiler: it was revealed that he took her in his home to ''feed his pet monster''. Throughout the episode she pleads for him to help her and argues that there's something inside the closet trying to harm her, but he dismisses her ''intentionally''. After his monster kills her and [[AdultFear her mother calls him out of fear that something has happened to her daughter]], he lies about her whereabouts to cover his tracks. He gets away with murder and it's implied that Gale was not the first or last victim for his monster.]]
* MostAnnoyingSound: In-universe and out, the constant phone rings in "Answer Me." Although, they are only there to create fear in the audience.
* NightmareRetardant:
** The series finale. Seriously, a ''momma's boy wrestler'' (said momma is his manager) fights a ''demon from hell''.
** The monster from "Inside the Closet."...it looked like an aborted Muppet...
** The Cutty Black Sow in ... "The Cutty Black Sow". ...seriously, ''look me in the eye'' and TELL me it doesn't look like a black-furred Series/{{ALF}}.
* ParanoiaFuel: ''Every episode'' will make you wonder if anyone or any''thing'' is trying to kill you.
* {{Squick}}: "A Case of the Stubborns" is about an old man who refuses to believe he's dead and resumes living a normal life with his daughter and grandson Jody, or ''tries'' to. However, he fails to notice that he's ''decaying'' and starting to fester over time. He finally realizes he's no longer alive when he [[spoiler:''sneezes off his nose''. Then, we're treated to a GrossUpCloseUp of his nose]].
-->'''Jody:''' If that ain't proof... I don't know what is.
* TheWoobie: Mars Gillis. He's DrivenToSuicide when he thinks that he's killed a baby, when he never did. [[spoiler: He later gets revenge by killing [[BitchInSheepsClothing Linda]] for making him kill himself after she caused his suffering to begin with.]]
