We do our best here at TVShowsOnDVD, but every once in a while we miss a release. It's especially easy to do if the studio forgets to e-mail you about it! I'm looking at you, kaBOOM! Entertainment of Toronto, Ontario. This company puts out some excellent Canadian releases, though, and this past September 18th
they slipped out a 2-disc set of Tales from the Cryptkeeper: Pleasant Screams: The Complete 1st Season
. All 14 episodes from the first season of the animated spin-off of HBO's Tales from the Crypt
, running about 290 minutes, is yours for CA$22.99 SRP. Of course, Amazon's Canadian branch is selling this for $18.39 at the moment
, if you just want to order it and have it delivered to your door. Our thanks to reader Fred Hinnegan, for letting us know that this much-wanted item exists! Here's a show description, and a (somewhat fuzzy, but view-able) look at the box art:
Get ready, fright fans! The cartoon Cryptkeeper opens his vault of tales for your television screams. He'll shock you. He'll scare you. He'll make you laugh, and always leaves you with something to think about by teaching you a lesson HIS way. Each new "car-tomb" provides thrills, chills, and lessons when you watch!
With each episode, this animated show features a new, unscrupulous protagonist who commits a foul deed: maybe a boy who bullies younger kids or a pair of gruesome girls with no respect for rules. As always, the Cryptkeeper is on hand to cackle and howl as these little nasties learn the error of their ways. And they usually learn the hard way, tangling with vampires, giant toads, mutant ooze or toys come to life. It's frightful fun for the whole family!
