At last... Frute Brute & Fruity Yummy Mummy are mine!

Pretty good flavor for both, though I prefer Frute Brute's Cherry flavor to the Orange Creme flavor of FYM.

Long, loooong ago, when I was no older than my kids are now, I received a little grey stuffed cat from someone (likely my parents, though I can't be certain). My sister also received one that was identical (though the differences in their facial features are easy to distinguish).

Little did I know just how important this little cat would become in my life.

At some point, my sister and I ended up falling asleep together in my bed. I think she was afraid to sleep in her own most of the time.

We would have a difficult time falling asleep some nights, so we would gather up some of our stuffed animals, pull the sheets up over our upright, bended knees, and perform "The Meowwy Wowwy Show".

This would entail the host, Meowwy Wowwy (my little grey cat) and his brother Smarts (my sister's grey cat) introducing a variety of guests performing different acts to entertain the rest of the animals.

Fast forward nearly 35 years...

Meowwy is still hosting the Meowwy Wowwy show, though the proceedings are a bit more extravagant now that it's my own kids playing along with me, and I have money to spend on the whole shabang...

Meet Meowwy Wowwy (manufactured in 1981, and still holding up well even in the hands of 3 to 7 year olds...

 

Today, Meowwy is decked out in his vampire cape as the gang is in the Halloween spirit (every holiday, the gang's house and stage are festooned with that holiday's décor)

His co-host on stage is no longer Smarts (my sister still has him though). Now it is Feeba (who you might recognize as someone else from The Lion King). Yes, Meowwy now has his own stage (he's no longer stuck with my lap and some bended knees).

This is the Meowwy Wowwy gang's house. This is where most of the smaller audience members hang out. It too is decorated for the holiday.

These little trouble makers are the "Super Babies". They like to make fun of the proceedings and stir up the hornets nest. Mostly by making poopy diaper jokes. Behind them is Grumpy Dog. He gets his kicks by yelling out how terrible the show is, and what an awful host Meowwy is.

In the kitchen, Alvin and the Chipmunks hang out while Theodore concocts his treat for the evening's guests. It's always something different, and usually pretty good.

The rest of the gang that can't fit in the house, sit on the Dora couch and costume box. Front row seating.

Here we see Skele-T-Bob, Penguin Halfheart (who is even older than Meowwy), One Eyed Bear, and the Ear Wax Monkeys (who enjoy throwing ear wax at everyone. Don't ask).

Other audience members. The 3 Elves used to only show up to the show during Christmas, but the kids missed them when they were gone, so now they just hang out all the time. Though, they do disappear for a couple weeks right before the "Big Day". Gotta help out Santa, right?

Well, that's what Meowwy is up to lately. Still hosting after all these years. Hopefully my kids' kids will be enjoying Meowwy's show in the future.

Anyone here still believe in The Great Pumpkin? Enough to go out in a pumpkin patch at night to wait for him?

Goosebumps have a few Halloween titles such as The Haunted Mask and Attack of the Jack o'Lanterns.

Matt at DinoDrac did a recent post on the actual product that tied into the Haunted Mask book. It was an actual glow-in-the-dark mask resembling that of the book's mask. Pretty neat.

good news and bad news time. good news, my article is awaiting submission, bad news, it's a tad short since my memory is fuzzy on what happened every single halloween of my childhood, but thankfully the monster party review that's going with it should give the article some good length

Does anyone else remember WCW Halloween Havoc?

Also, this year will be the 20th anniversary of the 1993 Halloween film Hocus Pocus.

I was a big fan of Hocus Pocus (and the witches made it into the Halloween header image, as you can see). I was always a bit smitten by the female lead.

And yes, I recall a few Halloween Havocs. They were always good fun.

Man, Halloween Havoc is something I wish would come back.

As for Hocus Pocus, fine movie.
