This Sesame Street Halloween adventure guest stars Caroline Rhea, who was on Sabrina the Teenage Witch, so she knows a thing or two about Halloween.

In Japan, square watermelons are a big (expensive) deal. So this Spookley the Square Pumpkin reminds me so much of that.

We loved Little Bear growing up, so I’m sure your kids will love these four Little Bear Halloween Stories.
What’s New Scooby-Doo, Vol. 3 – Halloween Boos and Clues
There are four episodes in this Scooby Doo compilation. Which is Volume 3. But I can’t find Volumes 1 or 2, so I’m kind of confused.
Power Rangers Samurai: Monster Bash
I’m not exactly sure which incarnation of the Power Rangers star in this Halloween movie (because there have been a lot over the years), but it’s still bound to be a good collection.
Beetlejuice: A Halloween Spooktacular
There’s no Michael Keaton in this Beetlejuice, but it is produced in part by Tim Burton, and that’s good enough for me.
