Fun, action packed and the kids might learn something

This animated movie is an adaptation of a Ray Bradbury story. It's essentially A Christmas Carol for Halloween. There's some history of Halloween and a bunch of kids flying around through time. I think it's safe to say that it's very kid friendly. Personally, I think most adaptations of A Christmas Carol are downright scary, this isn't even close. Fun, action packed and the kids might learn something.I love Ray Bradbury so what can I say. Leonard Nimoy's voice is always amazing as well, I'd probably watch it just for that.

A staple for Halloween viewing!

Much better than I expected from Hanna-Barbera. While given the same cartoon treatment (one of my least favorite) as Scooby Doo and other HB mainstays this movie has a great story, great characterizations, and the voice acting is excellent. It is always a treat to hear Ray Bradbury & Leonard Nimoy. My major comment is about the music. The movie (1993) information says the composer is John Debney. However, much of the main theme is identical or quite similar to the main themes by John Williams in the Harry Potter movies (2001+). I have never read of any issues between the two composers and ...

Probably the 2d best Halloween cartoon ever! Disney's Icahbod is the best.

It Started With.....

I waited for two months to purchase the Halloween Tree on DVD. I was finally put on the waitlist last week and unfortunately Amazon alerted me that the DVD (I prepaid for in advance) was now unavailable. Not to be deterred; I decided to go ahead and just rent the movie. I'm so happy I did. For 20 years this has been a Halloween staple for me. I'm in my early 30s and I will never get tired of watching this movie. It all started with a mummy, a witch, a gargoyle, and a skeleton. Four rambunctious children traveling back 4000 years ago to follow the trail of their ...

Ray Bradbury at his best...Leonard Nimoy is the best at voicing moundshroud. This is a yearly Halloween tradition for our family and I feel every family should do the same
