1995 Tiny Toon Adventures: Toons from the Crypt

This is for all you Tales from the Crypt fans out there. Not really a Halloween special but I guess it's Halloween related. In the early 90's, the folks at Tiny Toons decided to do a little homage to the classic HBO horror series. When they presented it to the Fox censors, they rejected it saying it was too gruesome for network television and was never shown on Fox Kids. However, some time later Nickelodeon got a hold of it and aired it on their cable channel in reruns and syndication in Fall 1995 up until 2000. Buster Bunny portrays the Cryptkeeper. Coincidentally, John Kassir, the voice of the Cryptkeeper, would later become Buster's second voice actor after Charlie Adler quit after being denied a part on Animaniacs.
