31 Days of Halloween - Day 29 - Movies

"Movies" is a bit of a misnomer. I didn't have enough time to watch an entire movie tonight, so I watched a cartoon and a couple of tv episodes instead. At least all of them were halloween related.

First came "To Boo Or Not To Boo" starring Casper the friendly ghost. Casper tries trick or treating with some kids. When they realize he's a real ghost they flee. Poor Capser then comes across a halloween party in a barn and gets the brilliant idea to cover himself in white wash, hiding his transparency. He befriends a little girl. When an accident with some water reveals his true nature, everyone flees but the girl, who turns out to be a ghost in costume as well.

"Halloween With The Addams Family" is a first season episode in which the macabre family gets ready for Halloween. They mistake a pair of bank robbers for trick or treaters and invite them into the house to celebrate with them. Thinking they've found a refuge from the police, the robbers do, but soon realize that they'd be better off in jail than playing games like "bobbing for the crab."

"Munster Masquerade" is the first episode of "The Munsters," and while not specifically Halloween related does feature a Masquerade party, allowing the Munsters to unwittingly, almost pass for regular people in their Little Bo Peep, Napoleon, and King Arthur costumes. When their true appearances are revealed, hilarity ensues.
