    • [Opening wraparound segment with the Crypt Keeper as a dentist and examining an x-ray.]
      The Crypt Keeper: Hmm...frankly, your hax-rays look terrible. You've got to pay close attention to your oral die-gene, or you'll end up looking like me. I want you to brush after every meal; floss, and gar-goy-le twice a day. Hmm...yes...looks like I have to drill. [pulls out a power drill] This won't hurt ME a bit! [laughs] In the meantime, to take your mind off of the pain, I've got a little dose of fright-rous oxide for you. [places breathing mask over patient.] It's about a sideshow mind reader who's lost his head over a pretty girl. I call it, "Food for Thought".

      [Closing wraparound segment with the Crypt Keeper as a dentist.]
      The Crypt Keeper: Mmm...yummy. I sure hope Nobonga ate it all. You know what they say, kiddies: a mind's a terrible thing to waste. Maybe she saved some for breakfast, and had it in a brain muffin. [Laughs; turns to patient] I'm afraid it's going to have to come out. Oh, yes it does. Now butcher head back. Open wider...WIDER...[pulls out the patient's tongue] Got it! They don't call me the Tooth Scary for nothing. [Laughs]
