"Admittedly, I've only watched disc 1 thus far! I bought both Seasons 1 and Season 2, but Season 2 has the episodes I mainly remember from my childhood and are my favorites! In fact the "The Haunted Mine" episode is so great that I've spent years trying to find it, but it was so good that I remembered it as a live action movie instead of just an episode of this cartoon series! That episode alone is worth the price of the DVD set itself! The title episode for this set "All The Gory Details" turned out to be my favorite episode I mainly remember this show for (other than "The Haunted Mine" which was a surprise bonus, I mean, I hoped it could be that story I remembered, but I really remembered it being live action...which now I think might be because it's thus far the only episode not centered around young kids, the youngest people in it are at least driving age, the characterization is top notch, and the plot is truly memorable). This set has vampires, Frankenstein-like monsters, Were-Fish, the Grim Reaper with a zombie basketball team, a very touching ghost story (that scared the heck outta me as a kid, but now it's not as scary despite being incredibly well done), and more. Like I said, this is just the first disc I'm reviewing because I haven't gotten to the second one yet!
The only annoying thing about this season is that some stories are shorter (but you get two per episode) and the addition of the Vault Keeper and the Old Witch trying to steal the show from the Cryptkeeper. Though when somebody other than the Cryptkeeper tells the story you do get some really good episodes, like "All The Gory Details" and "The Haunted Mine" which are told by the Vault Keeper. The Old Witch serves up the story of the were-fish, and of the basketball game against the Grim Reaper. The first season was alright, but this second season is a must have and is absolutely top notch quality!"
