  • A two-faced circus freak falls in love with an acient mummy. That is basically it--oh, and a Crypt Keeper-related twist at the end.

    • [Opening wraparound segment with the Crypt Keeper rocking a baby] The Crypt Keeper: Aw... There, there. Isn't he just so cute that you want to... Oops. Crypt Keeper here kiddies and speaking of kiddies, tonight's sickening saga should be subtitled a Tale from the Crib. Yes, dear fans I've got a real nursery crime for you this time. It's all about the humble beginnings of my favorite horror hero. So call the babysitter and break out the barf bags as I narrate a nauseating novella with a very special place in my heart. I affectionately call this one, 'Lower Berth'. [Closing wraparound segment with the Crypt Keeper sobbing] The Crypt Keeper: Oh, sorry, kiddies. But that story just makes me go to all pieces. Ah Ha Ha. I was a cute little terror tyke though wasn't I. As for Enoch and Myrna I guess you figured out by now where I get my good looks. Old Two-Face was my daddy and the mummy was my mommy. Ha Ha Ha.

    • Kevin Yagher, an animatronics expert and puppetmaster created the Crypt Keeper puppet and since this episode featured the birth of the Crypt Keeper, he was the perfect choice to direct, considering he is basically the Crypt Keeper's "father".
