The Halloween Tree - Out Now!

Halloweeen is one of my very favorite holidays!  I love the chill in the air, getting the kids dressed up for trick-or-treating and of course carving pumpkins and decorating the house!  This year we have added a new Halloween movie to our family traditions - The Halloween Tree!  This movie was orignially released in 1993, but I had never heard of it.  Warner Brothers has recently released it to DVD.  It is a Hanna-Barbara film.  Although this movie is great, it may be a little too scary for small children.  My kids - ages 8 and 4 really enjoyed it, but I can see where it might be scary for some.  This movie is about 4 kids who try to save the spirit of their friend.  With the help of Moundshroud, they visit many far away places, to learn about the origins of their Halloween costumes.  This movie is pretty educational - without seeming so.  I really enjoyed watching this with my kids and we plan on making it a family Halloween tradition!

Movie Synopsis:

Sit on the edge of your seat and enjoy master storyteller Ray Bradbury's classic adventure of four youths who try to save the spirit of their friend Kip from the ghosts of Halloween past. The four encounter a mysterious character, Moundshroud who takes them on a magical journey that sweeps them back as far as 4,000 years and touches down in exotic places all over the world like Egypt, England, France and Mexico. Along the way they discover the magic and meaning of Halloween - and friendship. This enchanting adventure features the voice talents of Leonard Nimoy as Moundshroud and the animation wizardry of Hanna-Barbera. It's a story as timeless as Halloween itself - a bubbling cauldron of thrills and suspense that will stir the imagination of the entire family. Bradbury's popular story is destined to become a perennial Halloween favorite.
