I happen to be a big fan of the Disney Sing-along-songs, not only are they educational and entertaining but it is a great excuse to revisit the Disney classics we know and love. While I mayn't consider Happy Haunting one of the best, it is one of my personal favourites. For those wondering whether it would be too scary or along the lines, I don't think it is. Of course there are some great macabre touches such as the atmospheric haunted house setting, the inclusion of a condensed version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Corey Burton's chillingly effective voice over for The Magic Mirror, but effort is also made to make it a lot of fun too, with pumpkin carving, dancing and Goofy's recipe for Chicken Lips and Lizard Hips. The production values are never too cheap and the sound effects not too cheesy considering the target audience. the three children that the story centres around are appealing, and certainly show a talent for singing, dancing and acting, and all the Disney characters while perhaps sidelined are fun. And of course the songs are great and easy to sing along to, the best being Legend of Sleepy Hollow(once you get past the replacement of Bing Crosby's voice), Cast Your Spell, Grim Grinning Ghosts(though it was featured on another Disney sing-along-video and I found the vocals spookier on that one) and Five Little Pumpkins. The songs also boast an opportunity like all the other Disney sing-along videos to get nostalgic over some of the Disney moments such as The Sorceror's Apprentice. Overall, quintessential for Halloween. 10/10 Bethany Cox
