Ok, most cartoons by nature aren't scary, but what these "scary" cartoons got is a touch of the Halloween spirit, an appreciation of monsters and mystery, and lastly, good 'ole sweet innocent horror.
Charlie Brown gets rocks in his trick-or-treat bag, Linus awaits a visitation from the Great Pumpkin in his terribly sincere pumpkin patch (while the adoring little Sally sits tight with him), Snoopy falls asleep, Lucy harasses Schroeder, and Pig-Pen kicks up a dust storm even beneath his costume in this classic television broadcast. Funny stuff, but also graced with Charles Schultz's more poignant and gently satiric themes from the 1960s on the influence of faith, failure, and hope in our lives. -- Tom Keogh Amazon.com
This is THE classic animated Halloween for both kids and adults. Halloween is just not the same without it.
If you meet forest gnomes disguised as zombies, dig up a mysterious old journal filled with secrets and ciphers, or encounter spooky hijinks at the local condemned convenience store, you've just crossed over into... Gravity Falls, where there's always something peculiar going on! It's always fun to join 12-year-old twins Dipper and Mabel Pines as they explore the oddest spot on the map. Shipped off to spend the summer with their gruff Great-Uncle ("Grunkle") Stan - who runs the tacky tourist trap, "Mystery Shack" - the kids uncover mysterious surprises, unsurpassed silliness and supernatural shenanigans lurking around every corner of the deceptively sleepy little town. Amazon.com
This is our new favorite! It is one smart, irreverent, laugh-out-loud show. We love all its endearing characters, especially Mabel who can do no wrong in our opinion. Hope this show goes on for a long time.

Monsters generate their city's power by scaring children, but they are terribly afraid themselves of being contaminated by children, so when one enters Monstropolis, top scarer Sulley finds his world disrupted.
The giant, blue-furred James P. "Sulley" Sullivan (wonderfully voiced by John Goodman) is a scare-monster extraordinaire in the hidden world of Monstropolis, where the scaring of kids is an imperative in order to keep the entire city running. Beyond the competition to be the best at the business, Sullivan and his assistant, the one-eyed Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal), discover what happens when the real world interacts with theirs in the form of a 2-year-old baby girl dubbed "Boo," who accidentally sneaks into the monster world with Sulley one night. - Doug Thomas Amazon.com
A very clever "monster" movie with some adults overtones....very funny.

Winnie the Pooh - Frankenpooh and Spookable Pooh
Frankenpooh - A spooky theme runs through several stories in this collection. "The Monster Frankenpooh" finds Dr. Von Tigger turning Pooh into a somewhat familiar-looking, scary creature. "Things That Go Piglet in the Night" features the characters on a ghost chase, and "Pooh Moon" finds Pooh and Piglet searching for honey while everyone else assumes they're missing--not just missing, but taken by the Grabme Gotcha. Charming visuals, terrific characters, touching stories. A winner. Amazon.com
Spookable Pooh - It's a rainy day, and Pooh and his friends are spending it in Christopher Robin's attic. Two stories from the delightful animated series follow: "A Knight to Remember," which finds the timid Piglet transported to a magical kingdom, where he fights a dreadful dragon, and "Rock-a-Bye Pooh Bear," in which Piglet has a nightmare and is afraid to go back to sleep. That leaves it up to Pooh, Rabbit, and Tigger to show how bad dreams don't have to come true. As always in the Pooh series, the animation is better than average for TV/video (and even charmingly quaint), and the characters are great fun to be with. - Tom Keogh Amazon.com

Halloween boasts a full hour of deep-sea spooks featuring Nickelodeon's jolly sponge with the cubical trousers. In "Scaredy Pants" easy-to-scare SpongeBob attempts to come up with the scariest costume ever--and exceeds beyond his wildest dreams. "Imitation Krabs" concerns Plankton's evil robotic plan to trick SpongeBob into revealing Mr. Krab's secret krabby patty recipe. "Frankendoodle," a spoof on Frankenstein, has SpongeBob drawing a self-portrait with a magical pencil he found. It proceeds to come to life, wreaking havoc all over Bikini Bottom. SpongeBob turns into a "snailcat" in "I Was a Teenage Gary" when he's accidentally injected with pet Gary's medicine. And in "Squidward the Unfriendly Ghost," SpongeBob and pal, Patrick the starfish, mistake his grumpy talcum powder-covered neighbor for a grown-up Casper. The educational value may be minimal, but the humor quotient is high in these five installments of the popular series. For ages 6 and up. - Kathleen C. Fennessy Amazon.com
Although not all episodes are Halloween-themed, each episode is "creepy". Even enjoyable for adults, as long as you like ole SpongeBob! We sure do!
