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

Now what? The party's just starting and we're out of food.
Well I could whip up some werewolf kabobs.

I find myself curiously looking forward to seeing Scary Godmother Movie. Not a glowing review, at first glance, but beneath it is high approval. I'm very critical of the air-brushed look of some video games and CGI animation; so for me to look forward to "Scary G" means something of content got through. That... is what every program creator secretly wants to hear. Is "je ne sais quoi" over doing it? Well that's my take on it. But something else nags me. "Hanna" the lead in "Scary G" reminds me so much of "Cathy" from "Monster Buster Club" that I find myself scrounging for a connection. MBC is a Marathon France/Canada product with ties to Jetix and Disney Chanel. Now "Scary G" is from Canada but I got no more than that yet (as far as IMDb says). Sometimes animators do carry-over styles from one production house to the next (see Annime) but I'm holding out for a more direct connection. Anyone care to chime in?
