    • Arnold Schwarzenegger

      Famous Austrian bodybuilder turned actor, noted for his mega-popular early 80's to early 90's reign as one of the top box-office attractions in the world. Among his many string of hits were, Conan The Barbarian, The Terminator, The Running Man, Total Recall and True Lies. He became as well known for his action films as he did for his dry sense of pun type humor which he used a lot in his movies. It should be noted, this pun type humor is a lot like the Crypt Keeper's and his first directorial effort came with this episode. At the time of this episode's airing in 1990, Schwarzenegger was still one of the top box-office stars in the world, it would be three years later, in 1993 after the poor box-office performance of The Last Action Hero that his box-office star power would begin to cool off. He went on to become Governor of California in 2003.

      Arnold Schwarzenegger directed this episode and appears with the Crypt Keeper as himself in the opening wraparound segment.
