The babies are back for three timely tales, one full-length episode and two shorter ones. In "Curse of the Werewuff," Angelica explains Halloween to the little ones, but--as usual--goes too far. They look forward to trick-or-treating but are concerned that whatever they dress up as, they'll "turn into for real." Chuckie doesn't want to be a "werewuff" the rest of his life! The night before the big day, he has a dream about that very thing. In "Ghost Story" the gang gathers to tell campfire stories. Angelica describes a spooky house and the rest join in to finish the tale. By the end, they've scared her more than she's scared them. In "Sleep Trouble" Stu tells Tommy and Chuckie about the "Sandyman" to help them sleep, but it gives them the frights, so they hatch a plan to keep him away. Gentle fun for ages 3 and up. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
Spock (Leonard Nimoy) waxes spooky as Death personified in this video retelling of Ray Bradbury's classic Halloween adventure. A Hanna-Barbera animated presentation, The Halloween Tree tells the story of four close friends who must face their greatest fears as they travel through time to save their dear comrade, Pip. It's Halloween night, Pip's favorite holiday, and the friends are baffled to spot his spirit running through the woods when they've just seen his body hauled off in an ambulance. Mustering their courage, they follow the spirit and meet Moundshroud (Nimoy), the mysterious black-caped proprietor of a haunted house. Moundshroud challenges them each to gain a deeper understanding of the origins of this ghostly holiday as he leads them on an educational journey through faraway places and time periods. From Egyptian sarcophaguses to Mexican graveyards, the children learn the legends behind Halloween and the importance they place on their friendship with Pip. Imaginative, not too scary, well-acted, and nicely drawn, this hour-long treat will appeal to little spooks ages 5 and older. A short Yogi Bear "classic" involving a witch vacationing in Jellystone Park opens the show; parents not into reminiscing might wish to fast-forward past this dated time-waster. --Liane Thomas
