Something Wicked This Way Comes!

So a two-thousand pound pig is stolen from a pen that is raised up about ten feet in the air? Won't begin to ask why. The reason was only two people had a key to the crane. Basically it appeared the pig's fenced pen was raised on a forklift, but one begs to differ how safe was this animal suspended in the air like this? Why not just hire an all-night security guard.

One of the suspects is a Sydney Greenstreet reject (popularized by the villain that appeared on Josie and the Pussycats).

And now for the inexplicable chasing monsters. We get not one, not two, but THREE chasing spectres of sorts.

First we have Pan, the goat god, that emerges from the animal pens and pursues DD and Pepper, then is no longer seen.

THEN we have the pumpkinhead, that rips himself out of the ground and pursues Woofer and Wimper.

FINALLY, we get the black silhouette, who chases DD and Pepper again, but it isn't Pan or Pumpkinhead.

There was just a lot of assumption on the part of kids that we would deduce these chasing monsters were 'to scare people away', but it is never said in the program.

This program does offer up a rather unique exchange between Larry and Dotty, when she is told to stay away from the carnival, she shows up anyway (a child is told to stay away from the carnival) and says she won't bother with an excuse, since Larry will always figure out if she is really telling the truth.

Once again, I suspect there was supposed to be something to Larry's relationship with Dotty, like these were the two brothers dating the two sisters.

Okay episode, just a little over-crowded with the chasing monsters.
