Opening Segment Edit

"Howdy, illgrim. Wah-huh. It's die noon, and you know what that means, don't you? It means it's time for a gunfright at the O.K. Ghoulral 'cause this tomb ain't big enough for the both of us. Which brings me to tonight's tale. It's about a gunslinger who's about to ride into his last roundup. I call this prairie poison Showdown."

Closing Segment Edit

"Talk about a sick shooter. Who'd have thought being a cowboy could stirrup so many bad feelings? Well, kiddies, I've got to go. There's a ghoul rush on, you know. Hmm. I wonder...who was that mashed man?"

Trivia Edit

  • Despite the on-screen credit for "Two-Fisted Tales", this episode was an original story, though it does share the name of a story from issue 37 of the "Two-Fisted Tales" comic book. The credit is due to the fact that this was produced as an episode of the unsold anthology series Two-Fisted Tales (1992). The comic book of the same name is a war anthology and did not feature any Western or horror stories.
  • Frank Darabont, the writer shows up as a dead cowboy.
