Disney Announces Halloween Programming Slate

We’re only a month or so away from Halloween, so it’s not surprising that networks are already preparing their Halloween-centric shows, with the Disney, Disney XD, and Disney Junior channels staying one step ahead of the competition via the Monstober programming event.

The Monstober event – which is hosted by the Disney channel and will feature Halloween-centric episodes, movies, games, and new series premieres – will begin on Friday, October 5, 2012. Monstober will premiere the Halloween-themed season two debuts of Jessie and Austin & Ally, the premiere of the Disney Channel Original Movie Girl Vs. Monster, as well as mutant/monster, trick-or-treat and witch-filled episodes of A.N.T. Farm, Gravity Falls, Good Luck Charlie, Fish Hooks, a marathon of My Babysitter’s a Vampire and movies, including Hocus Pocus, Twitches, Monsters, Inc, among others.

What’s more, the fun will start a little early as fans can go to DisneyChannel.com/Halloween on September 28, where they can upload their own photos and transform it into a monster. Some of the entries will be shown on air. Kids will also create a haunted house maze with Monster Mania Maze, each featuring a Disney Channel show, on the site, as well as two special games based on Girl Vs. Monster – Skylar’s Chilling Challenge and Skylar vs. Deimata.

Disney XD, for their part, will be hosting their own Halloween themed programming event called Monster-Sized Monday Mayhem Monday, 7p-9:30p, which will showcase episodes of Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja, with guest star Sarah Hyland (Modern Family), Pair of Kings, Kickin’ It, Crash & Bernstein and Lab Rats. Also for Halloween, the network will air Disney Channel’s new original movie Girl Vs. Monster on Saturday, October 20 at 11a. Leading up to the premiere, on Monday, October 15, DisneyXD.com/Monster will launch the exclusive game Skylar vs. Deimata.

The preschool targeted Disney Junior, on the other hand, will get in on the Halloween act through Halloween episodes of Jake and the Never Land Pirates on Friday, October 5 at 8:30a and Doc McStuffins on Friday, October 12 at 10a on Disne
