Cartoon Series to Get You in the Halloween Spirit
It's that time again--time to dust off your lucky trick-or-treating pillowcase and get down to the serious business of candy collectin'. To get you in the spirit, we're saluting the TV shows that keep the Halloween vibe going all year long. Take a look!
The Real GhostbustersBased on the classic '80s movie, The Real Ghostbusters are a team of paranormal police who kick supernatural butt on the streets of New York with only their wits, humor and a few ray guns to help them. For Egon, Peter, Ray and Winston (along with their unintentional mascot, Slimer), every day is Halloween.
The Grim Adventures of Billy and MandyWhen the Grim Reaper loses a limbo contest with Billy and Mandy, he's forced to become their best friend forever. Now this odd trio of BFFs is joined at the hip as they have underworld adventures together (a fact that makes the Grim Reaper even grimmer).
BeetlejuiceThis classic Halloween cartoon has made a big comeback in reruns, just like Ghostbusters. Beetlejuice is the ghost with the most, and Lydia is a spooky girl who doesn't fit in in the real world. Together, they make unusual friends, but they do get into all kinds of awesome adventures, both in the real world and in the Underworld, where ghosts and ghoulies reign supreme! Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!
What's New Scooby-Doo?This lovable dog and his gang of human friends have been solving mysteries, unmasking bad guys, fleeing from monsters and chowin' down on Scooby Snacks for years. With Mystery Inc. coming up against sea monsters, vampires, mummies, and more, this is the perfect show to get you geared up for ghoul night!
Casper's Scare SchoolBased on the 2006 movie, this cartoon is so spooky that it's not even out yet! Promising to arrive next year, Casper's Scare School is a place where the friendliest ghost you know can find friendships (with an unraveling mummy named Ra and a zombie girl, Mantha, who keeps falling apart). In Scare School, Casper's definitely not the only ghoul! This series is set to air on the Cartoon Network in 2009, but you can get the movie version anytime from your video store. Boo!
