Movie Quote(s):
  • Crypt Keeper: [after cutting someone's ear off with a pair of scissors] Shave and a haircut, two bits! [laughs hysterically]
  • Crypt Keeper: Heads, I win. Tails, you *ooze*!
Movie Trivia:
  • The series was originally envisioned as a trilogy story feature film. This was changed to a television program because the producers feared it would bomb as a movie, as trilogy-style horror films rarely had success at the box office.
  • The introduction sequence that started every episode through the Cryptkeeper's home is actually the size of a miniature golf course green. Small "snorkel" cameras were used to film this portion. The descent into the crypt in the end of the intro is computer generated.
  • While animatronics expert/puppetmaster Kevin Yagher was in the final stages of designing the Cryptkeeper, he tried on a few noses to see which would look best for the character - who had already shed lips, hair and most of his teeth - but none looked quite right. Director and producer Robert Zemeckis simply remarked, "You know, you don't necessarily have to have a nose."
  • It took six puppeteers to operate the Cryptkeeper during his scenes, four puppeteers alone just for his facial expressions.
  • John Kassir, voice of the Cryptkeeper, often had to swallow lemon juice and honey to sooth his throat after doing his lines.
