weekly halloween cartoon special: double bill

Well Shelfers, one more week til All Hallows Eve, where ghosts and goblins roam the earth in search of full size Milky Way and Butterfinger Candy Bars. And though we have been, and will continue to do so, posting favorite posts from Halloweens past, today we have a new weekly Halloween cartoon feature!

Today's feature is a double bill. First off is a favorite, not created as a Halloween special, but it fits so well- Scaredy Cat with Porky Pig and Sylvester. Here's a bit of tricky trivia as an extra treat: Bob Clampett paired Porky and Sylvester for three shorts in which Sylvester is the mute pet who sees all of the imminent threats that could befall them, while Porky is the clueless owner who thinks Sylvester is just a "fraidy cat". The series includes our short, Jumpin' Jupiter and Claws For Alarm. Our 1948 short is the first short where Sylvester receives his official name.

Retro Commercial Break!

Next up is another classic, perhaps one of my all time favorites, this time with Donald and his nephews: Trick or Treat!

Well folks- we hope you enjoyed our double feature for Halloween fun! Stay tuned for more Shelf Halloween Madness 2009!

Oh, I know it's a penny here and a penny there, but look at me. I worked myself up from nothing to a state of extreme poverty.

Monsters lead such interesting lives.

That's a funny one with Sylvester! And I remember that McDonalds commercial too. I love that flying McNugget ghost.
