It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
The 1966 American prime-time animated television special based on the comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz. It was also the first Peanuts special to use the titular pattern of a short phrase, followed by “Charlie Brown”, a pattern which would remain the norm for almost all subsequent Peanuts specials.
Casper (Widescreen Special Edition)
“Ghost therapist” Dr. James Harvey and his daughter Kat arrive at drafty, old Whipstaff Manor. Its greedy owner, Carrigan Crittendon, has hired Dr. Harvey to exorcise the house’s apparitions: a friendly but lonely young ghost named Casper, who’s just looking for a friend, and his outrageous uncles Stretch, Stinkie and Fatso (The Ghostly Trio).With hilarious antics and dazzling special effects, Casper is a mile-a-minute adventure comedy for the whole family.
Halloweentown / Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge (Double Feature)
Join Marnie and her grandmother Aggie as they stir up a cauldron full of comedy and adventure in two Disney Channel classics — HALLOWEENTOWN and HALLOWEENTOWN II: KALABAR’S REVENGE. On her 13th birthday, Marnie learns she’s a witch, discovers a secret portal and is transported to HALLOWEENTOWN — a magical place where ghosts and ghouls, witches and werewolves live apart from the human world.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
The Nightmare Before Christmas is deeper, darker and more brilliant than ever — just as Tim Burton originally envisioned it. Can Christmas be saved? Bored with the same old scare-and-scream routine, Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, longs to spread the joy of Christmas. But his merry mission puts Santa in jeopardy and creates a nightmare for good little boys and girls everywhere!
Beetlejuice (20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)
A couple of recently deceased ghosts contract the services of a “bio-exorcist” in order to remove the obnoxious new owners of their house.
