User Reviews

just loved this show when I was young
9 June 2006 | by animalaSee all my reviews

when i was a kid, i would get on my jammies, brush my teeth, then get a blanket to wrap around myself so no one in the family would see when I got creeped out.

I LOVED this show. And I loved that Vincent Price was on it.

Why don;t we have more artistic literary thinking shows like this?

It was fabulous!

ANd Gorey's artwork, as always, was wonderful (just wished the "screaming lady" would've put a little steam on the scream in the cartoon...I didn't believe she was in peril!).

If you can see any episodes and you enjoy mystery and good literature, it is worth seeing, definitely.
