The Poltergeist, The Ghost make an Amazing World of Gumball Halloween

Halloween hits Cartoon Network hard this year, and The Amazing World of Gumball wants to make a good showing. That’s why, this Halloween night, October 31st, Gumball will feature not just one but two spooky episodes, ready to frighten, and entertain, audiences all over. Even the titles of each is pretty scary: The Poltergeist is first, immediately followed by The Ghost. Sounds like they’re getting right to the point in getting their spook on! The whole shebang kicks off at 7:30pm, which doesn’t leave you much time to collect, and eat, a bag full of candy before getting some animation in! Maybe even a gumball or two.

The Poltergeist

First up is The Poltergeist, which all starts so simply. Richard and Nicole are pleasantly sleeping, when they’re startled, hearing something from the attic. Has to be a ghost, right…? Or… maybe just Mr. Robinson? Seems Gumball has kept Mr. Robinson in the attic for quite awhile, and Mr. Robinson used that time to become completely immobile. No moving, no sounds, no nothing. Except for a few creaks, which scared the heck out of Richard. But the whole reason he’s up there in the first place? He’s lost his anger causing him to lose Mrs. Robinson. Now if that isn’t the saddest Halloween special, I don’t know what it is!

The Ghost

The second episode, The Ghost, stars Gumball and Carrie. Gumball, of course, is our lovable hero. Carrie is … a ghost! And while you’d think they could possibly be the best of friends, int his particular episode, all Carrie wants to do is posses Gumball’s body so that she can pretend to be alive again. And what do you want to do when you’re alive? Eat! But maybe that’s not exactly what Gumball wanted to do, which leads to a lot of internal dialog.
