Trivia

Even though the film was entirely produced by Hanna-Barbera, with the exception of "Castle Thunder" being heard a few times, none of Hanna-Barbera's famous sound effects show up in this film. This became more common with the company during the 1990s. See more »

A magical journey through time and the meanings of Halloween
12 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A truly wonderful animation following the exploits of four children who learn the true meanings and reasons we celebrate Halloween as they travel through time to learn why we celebrate All Hallows Eve (Halloween). Dressed as a Skeleton a Witch a Mummy And a Werewolf the Children race through time and different cultures to save their friend from the grip of the Evil yet wonderfully portrayed Mr Moundshroud! Leanord Nimoy (Spock from Star Trek) is Excellent at portraying the role or Mr Moundshroud. A must for the whole family as it is as educational for the Children as it is heart warming for the Child in us all.
