Storyline

Aunt Agatha threatens to call the police on innocent trick-or-treaters. Her nephew, Ralph, would love to be out with them. But what he wants most of all is a pumpkin. From across the street, Raggedy Ann and Andy watch the drama unfold. Andy is furious at Agatha for preventing the boy from enjoying the wonderful, horrible holiday. Ann, with her irritating insistence on fairness, decides that Agatha has merely forgotten what it's like to be young. The pressing matter ahead is getting Ralph a pumpkin. Andy scoffs at the idea of finding one at this late date. Ann reasons that if there's a little boy who needs a pumpkin, there must be a pumpkin who needs a little boy. She's right. Not far away, a miserable pumpkin is blubbering out pumpkin seed-tears because no one wants him for Halloween. Written by J. Spurlin

An animated Halloween Special made by Chuck Jones
14 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Now here is Halloween special I hardly remember; until I watched it on YouTube. It is an animated Halloween Special made by Chuck Jones, starring Raggedy Ann & Andy and their dog Raggedy Arthur. The show starts with a gloomy pumpkin, crying forlornly about being left out on Halloween. Meanwhile in neighbourhood, Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy watch from their window a sad little boy named Ralph, who lives across the road from their house, with his cold-hearted Aunt Agatha, who dose not think Trick-or-Treating on Halloween is fun at all!

Feeling sorry for young Ralph, Ann and Andy thought a Jack-o-Lantern would cheer him up. So with Arthur and his skate-board and a flashlight (for the pumpkin), the three rag-dolls headed for the pumpkin patch. And but shear-luck, they had found the gloomy pumpkin, and when Ann tells the pumpkin that he will make Ralph happy, a smile came across his face.

I kind of like the scene where the pumpkin on the skateboard speeds down the hill with Raggedy Ann, Andy and Arthur trailing behind, Chuck Jones is awesome! The subtle details on the expressions of the characters are just genius; a reason I love animation by Chuck Jones. I had watched this special again (on YouTube), and I love this cartoon! It's so rare and such a classic! A real heart warmer around Halloween time.
