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.

Scary and fun at the same time
6 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

This short animation is about Shrek and his friends having a competition to see who can tell the scariest story.

"Scared Shrekless" is a fun animation. It is so colourful and fun. It is not easy to make a scary enough but not too scary animation for kids. Everything about "Scared Shrekless" is so adorable. The characters are cute, and the haunted house is spooky in a fun way. The gingerbread man sub-story is scary and fun at the same time. It sounds crazy, but the story that the gingerbread man tells is scary, and yet the gingerbread man and women are so adorable and colourful that it makes the story entertaining and not so scary.
