I loved this back in the day, 5 January 2007
Author: 9sam1 from United States

i really liked this show when i was a kid so now when i watch it the nostalgia automatically makes me love it. it probably isn't to good if you didn't watch it as a kid but it is still a very good show. not to scary but since it was a kids show you cant expect much. Definitely worth a watch if you saw this show as a kid or just like the original. If i remember correctly the original voice of the cryptkeeper does the voice for this animated show as well.

As much as i love this show ill admit it was not as great as the original because of obvious reasons. but for a kid show it is damn good :)
