The Halloween Tree (in development)
Eight costumed boys running to meet their friend Pipkin at the haunted house outside town encounter instead the huge and cadaverous Mr. As Pipkin scrambles to join them, he is swept away by a dark Something, and Moundshroud leads the boys on the tail of a kite through time and space to search the past for their friend and the meaning of Halloween. Enhanced by appropriately haunting black-and-white drawings. But when Something whisks their friend Pip away, only one man, the sinister Carapace Clavicle Moundshroud, can help the boys find him.

In Egypt, they learn about mummification, and Ralph uses his costume to chase off priests proceeding to embalm Pip. When Ralph implores Pip to return, by explaining that Pip was the only one never to have mocked him, Pip encourages his friend to have confidence in himself. When the group is chased by a mob of witch hunters after learning about the history of witches and Jenny saves them with a collection of flying brooms while suffering a fear of heights, Pip reminds Jenny of her bravery.
In the process of learning about the holiday itself, the children and viewers, too learn the importance of friendship and courage. Gargoyles serve as utility.

And sometimes death is shown the same respect—and celebrated just as passionately—as life. In The Halloween Tree , education takes many forms.
And sometimes it starts with a pumpkin. Bradbury wanted to teach kids about the holiday. The four kids learn lessons in each of the locations they visit. Though there are four kids, yet Moundshroud keeps talking about three lessons?

Each child has a different costume though, skeleton, mummy, witch, and monster, with Pip playing the part of the ghost and Moundshroud possibly being the vampire , and tying many of these lessons to why we wear those outfits on Halloween. The animation is solid, a bit dated perhaps, but it feels familiar, like old Scooby-Doo , endearing and whimsically spooky in places, while being simply dark and foreboding in others. The music works well here and voice acting is fine, but there is little else that really stands out like the story does.
This was done by Director Mario Piluso, whom I only know from Stripperella , but Bradbury worked closely with everyone to make sure this passion project turned out the way he envisioned it. The movie must have left a little bit of a mark though, because Disneyland has incorporated elements from the movie into its annual holiday decorations on and off since , particularly the titular tree and several versions of the hanging pumpkins — which look great against the buildings.
