The Scary Godmother Halloween Spooktakular is based on the comics and children's books of popular artist and writer Jill Thompson. Jill has won numerous awards for her fabulous watercolour paintings and illustrations. Scary Godmother is the whimsical all-ages story that follows the first trick-or-treating adventure of Hannah Marie, a young girl whose rotten older cousin is babysitting her one dark Halloween. Unhappy to be saddled with Hannah, her cousin cooks up a scheme to frighten her. But his scheme backfires when Hannah gets help from her Scary Godmother. Scary Godmother takes Hannah to her realm on the Fright Side where she is throwing the best Halloween party in all of frightdom. At the party Hannah is introduced to many colourful characters, learns that not all monsters are mean and enlists her new spooky friends in a plan to teach Jimmy a lesson.Written by

But when it comes to Halloween night I love nothing more than to roll the bones at a good party. You are staying for the party aren't you?
Oh... well... good.

Jimmy has to take his little cousin Hannah trick-or-treating, and because she is slow and scared, Jimmy and his friend trick her into the Spook House on a story that monsters will eat everyone if the new kid does not give them candy, hoping it will scare her to the point of running home. However, things take a turn for the better, as Hannah soon meets her Scary Godmother, a witch who actually came because she cried, and soon, she is taken to her house in the Fright Side, to meet her monster friends and have a party (and even get back at Jimmy and his friends).
This is a neat Halloween special for kids. Made by Mainframe Entertainment (the company that brought us ReBoot, Beast Wars Transformers, and the 2000 incarnation of Action Man), this is a sweet special. Hannah is scared of monsters, and meeting Scary Godmother's roomates (from Skully Pettibone, the skeleton in the closet who wears a top hat and acts fancy, to Harry the gluttonous werewolf, to Bug-A-Boo, a monster who hides under the bed), the monsters are all friendly and Hannah learns not all monsters are evil and scary. Also, the voice actors are great and the story is heartwarming.
