    Hello Cryptkiddes. Here's a twisted fable called "The Third Pig". It's about this demented animated retelling of the fairy tale The Three Little Pigs, the Big Bad Wolf slaughters two of the three pigs, leaving the third pig, convicted of the murders. To exact revenge, the ghosts of the third pig's brothers inspire him to create a Franken-swine monster to take out the Wolf. Scary Is it?

    That was great. It's like Ren and Stimpy crossed over with Tales from the Crypt. <3 John Kassir's Crypt Keeper. :D

    Well, I like both the Frankenstein theme and twisted re-tellings of fairy tales, so this one appealed to me just nicely. The only real fault I found was
    the lack of rationale for Dudley wanting to get rid of his monster; it didn't do anything that might have warranted such steps to be taken. If there had been a scene where the zombie pig killed and ate, say, the three little rabbits at the pub or Little Bo-Peep, then I would have understood Dudley's decision more. Oh, and I really loved the Little Red Riding Hood homage at the end.

    Weirdest idea for a TFTC episode but fun i should say.

    It's like Ren and Stimpy meets Re-Animator.

    I watched it all the time when it was on. I even collected the comics, along with "The Vault of Horror" when EC reprinted them in the 90's.

    I only managed to see the show a handful of times, but I absolutely loved what I saw. I remember there was even one episode directed by Arnold Schwarzenegger, and it was actually pretty cool.

    One of these days I'm gonna have to get a boxset.

    I grew up with both the TV series and the comics. Absolutely love them.

    I bought a lot of EC reprints back in the 90s. They were great. I was really into some of the artists they had, particularly Jack Davis.

    Theme song use to scare me, because I was expecting him to pop out when I least expect it.

    I loved the show. It was interesting how they would sometimes use the EC Crime stories as some of the episodes.
