"It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" will be broadcast at 7 p.m. on ABC. You can't get much more classic than this 1966 "Peanuts" special. A bonus "Peanuts" cartoon will also air in the hourlong time slot.
"Scooby-Doo" will be shown at 8 p.m. on ABC Family. This 2002 movie, starring Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle
Gellar, was rated PG.

The well-reviewed 2009 animated film "Coraline" will be shown on ABC Family at 3 p.m. It was rated PG. 
"The Addams Family," starring Angelica Huston and Raul Julia, will be shown at 6 p.m. on ABC Family. This 1991
film was rated PG-13.

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy star as witches in "Hocus Pocus," will be shown at 7 p.m. on ABC Family. It was released in 1993 and was rated PG.

Hugh Jackman stars as a monster hunter in "Van Helsing," which will be shown at 7 p.m. on ABC Family. (This one might be quite bloody if I remember the trailer correctly.) The movie, released in 2004, was rated PG-13.
Monday, Oct. 31
Martha Stewart's Haunted House-themed show will be aired on the Hallmark Channel at 11 a.m. Of course it will only make you feel guilty that you didn't do more decorating, more cooking, more entertaining. So maybe skip this one!
"Casper" will be shown at 6 p.m. on ABC Family. This 1995 film stars Christina Ricci and was rated PG.
"Gremlins" is set during Christmas, but it has a Halloween feel, right? It will be shown oat 8 p.m. on CMT. This 1984 film about little creatures that you want to keep far, far away from water is rated PG, but it seems scarier to me than that!
Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy star as witches in "Hocus Pocus," will be shown at 8 p.m. on ABC Family. It was released in 1993 and was rated PG.

  1. I am so excited about Halloween this year. It's first time in a couple of years we have done anything. :)It was also the first year that my youngest saw It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. Priceless.
