Betty Ann: The park was called Playland, and it was the best. You could laugh, and scream, and get scared to death on rides, and stuff up on junk food, and ditch your parents - all on the same night.

A clever game of hide and go seek.,
1 August 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

This episode seemed to go for the all out scare. It was a really good episode, but it's problem was predictability. I could see the entire episode's plot at about 5 minutes into it, but this episode was well directed. It was really fresh and looked almost movie quality. The plot for this one is that a smart alec kid steals a clown's nose from a fun house and the clown comes to get it back. Another plus for the episode is the really creepy music. It was an excellent start to the series and I recommend you watch this. Guest starring Aaron Taggert as Zeebo (later plays Dr. Vink).

My rating: Pretty good episode. 24 mins. TV Y7
