Thinking...
25 March 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

Think 'Tales from the Crypt' animated. This series was Saturday morning cartoon and aired in ABC. Being on ABC and on Saturday morning kept the show from living up to the live action show. It wasn't able to be as scary or funny with those restrictions. On it's own, I'd say it was an okay show; but compared to the live action show, it does not measure up.
