But here is a list of my favorite Halloween specials. :) All are family-friendly!
1. Shrek Halloween Special: Thriller Night
(If the video does not work for you, the link is HERE:
This version has Spanish subtitles.
ESTA VERSION ESTA SUBTITULADA EN ESPAÑOL.)Shrek goes to a movie theatre and sees "The Sound of Music" and complains that he wants to see something scary. Donkey has a "spontaneous, musical outburst" and sings "Thriller" throughout the video with other characters who also dance~
2. Dreamworks Spooky Stories
Dreamworks whipped up a DVD of 3 Halloween shorts in 2009!
- "Scared Shrekless"
- In this short, several characters tell spooky stories
- "The Ghost of Lord Farquad"
- Lord Farquad returns and Dragon is still somehow evil. The film was made to be a 4-D attraction at Universal Studios (which I'm proud to say I was able to see when I was younger)
- A "Monsters vs. Aliens" short called "Mutant Pumpkins"
- Mutant Jack-o-Lanterns take over Susan's hometown
They are now available on Netflix! :)
3. Mickey Mouse's House of Mouse: Donald's Halloween Scare
In 2000, Mickey Mouse's House of Mouse was the cool thing to be watching among my friends and siblings!
This entire episode is Halloween-themed, but this is just a clip. It features Donald's nephews (Huey, Louie, and Dewey) going trick-or-treating. Their uncle scares them so bad, they drop their candy and must somehow get revenge.
Binky the Clown, the creepy star of a children's television show, reminds Garfield that it's Halloween. The famous fat cat convinces Odie to go with him and the two find a haunted mansion.~
This is a 24-minute-long episode of Garfield. This is family-friendly, however, kids may not have the attention span for this one... Even for a previous Garfield-obsessee, it's a bit dry at times. :)
5. "Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School"
This absorbed a large portion of my daily routine at one point of my childhood.
The voice cast is superb and even includes a newsie! (Mush, to be exact.~)
Scooby, Shaggy, and Scrappy become substitute teachers at an all-girls (all-monster) school. They compete in a series of games against an all-boys military school next door.~
This is a movie and can be found in-whole on Youtube here:
More to come in the future! Until then, keep in mind that there's only 137 days to Halloween! ;)
