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!
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.
