Halloween Cartoon Movies
It doesn't seem like a Halloween if i don't' get a chance to watch my favorite cartoon movies. When i was kid CN (cartoon network) used to air Halloween special cartoons all day. Now things are changed and they started airing funny cartoons instead of scary cartoons.But thanks to internet i have managed to pull up some movies from amazon, Netflix especially for this day. I have good collection of some of the classic cartoons in Halloween theme. Some of them are such rare that they're hardly available online or in VHS shops. If you're in search of good Halloween cartoons then read on you'll enjoy the selections.

It's set of three classic stories. You'll find these stories a bit scary. Three stories are in following order - The legend of sleepy hollow,The wind in the willows and Lonesome Ghost.

This movie is not that scary but you'll laugh more than can get scared. Story is quite different and funny too. You will find 3D animation is also less annoying compared to the new 3D animated movies.
Nicktoons - Halloween - Tales of Fright
Nick TV has it's set of cartoons for this day. There are not much serious scary stories in it. To be honest i never found this DVD interesting so skip it if you like serious scary stories.
Disney's once upon a Halloween
It's better not to disclose story of this or else you'll get bored. It has some good mix of all Disney characters for Halloween theme. Enough said.
Cartoon Network Halloween DVD Collection
There are three sets of Halloween DVD collection. First set is packed with classic cartoons on Halloween theme. Next two sets are more geared towards fun in Halloween theme. So if you want to buy then it's better if you get first set of DVD.
The Nightmare before Christmas
This movie is stop-motion based animation which shows an interesting story about Christmas. Though it's more suitable for Christmas theme but the scary part of it makes it valuable addition to Halloween movie theme.
Halloween Specials Cartoons
The Devil and the Daniel mouse
Devil and Daniel is an interesting story which is based on signing of contract with devil. I know, these are typical concepts but for animation movie it has a lot variation and different ending that usual movies.
The crown of bogg
Do you remember old clay animation movies ? Yes, this is another clay animation based movie on halloween theme. I kinda like the background soundtrack of this movie.
Witch's Night Out
Animation is not that impressive but that aside you'll enjoy the story. I wish there comes another 2D remake of this story.
The Witch who turned pink
There is nothing like classical animation with excellent art. This movie has story, cool animation and voice. You'll like this movie for sure.

Entire series of weird mysteries seems to have spooky episodes. But this one is made specially for the Halloween. If you're into Archie comics then you'll find this episode and the series entertaining.

This episode of duck tales is Halloween special. There isn't much spooky stuff in there but you know the duck tales stories, they're fun to watch.

Juniper lee is adventurous teen girl who solves mysteries and deals with monsters. This time she helps monster parents to get their kids out of human form back into monster form.
It's Punky Brewster - Halloween Howlers
This is classic animation video with art probably in early TV days. Punky Brewster didn't get much attention due to it's slow moving story lines. But their Halloween episodes is much better and kids wil surely love it.
