The Crypt Keeper is the first and main of the anthology hosts collectively known as the Ghoulunatics. He is the host for Tales From The Crypt.
The Crypt Keeper is quite an ugly and deformed looking old creature. He has white hair just like The Old Witch and The Vault-Keeper. He also wears a robe like his fiendish friends, yet he keeps the hood down and his is blue. He wears a skull ring on the ring finger of his right hand.
Unlike the Vault Keeper, the Old Witch and, the Crypt Keeper has a documented origin. The Crypt Keeper's origin story is told Origin in the issue "Lower Berth". The story tells the tale of a carnival whose star attractions are a mummy named Myrna and a two headed mutant corpse named Enoch. One day the two disappear and are nowhere to be found. A year later, the carnival comes back to the town and finds their lost stars in a cave, taking them back to the carnival. However, they are too far away to hear the cries of the ugly oddities hellish offspring; the Crypt Keeper. At the end of the story, the Crypt Keeper says they are still on display at the carnival today, which he says is eighty years later, meaning the Crypt Keeper is most likely eighty years old. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tales_from_the_Crypt_(comics) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tales_from_the_Crypt_(TV_series)
