Goofs

After Shrek finishes his story, Pinocchio claims that it wasn't him Shrek was talking about. Yet when Shrek shows him his 'conscience' he screams and runs away; indicating that it was him. Therefore, when Pinocchio said 'Uh that wasn't me. I've never had any bugs in my head', he was lying. Therefore his nose should have grown when he said it; as it did near the beginning of the film when he said 'Hey! I worked hard on this costume!' See more »

Shrek: [Castle Duloc has become run-down; to Donkey] Look! It's that little thingy you love so much, remember?
Creepy Clockwork Chorus: [Shrek pulls the lever on the Information Booth, and the same mechanized marionettes pop out singing, this time looking very deranged] Welcome to Duloc/It's a creepy town/It was once pristine/Now it's all run down.

Shrek Halloween Special
15 June 2018 | by Bored_DragonSee all my reviews

On Halloween, Shrek and several fairy tale characters go to the castle of Lord Farquaad, where they compete in telling scary stories. The last one remaining in the castle wins. This twenty-minute cartoon consists of three stories done as a homage to cult horrors. Gingerbread's story is inspired by the film "Bride of Frankenstein", Puss and Donkey squabble in their usual way through a parody of Hitchcock's "Psycho", and Shrek wins the night with scenes from the movie "The Exorcist" applied to Pinocchio. Imaginative, witty and technically well done. I enjoyed it very much.
