This Monday is of course the spookiest day of the year, Halloween! No doubt, you already have your Halloween costume picked out, and you’re set on raking in as much candy as possible. But ABC would like to remind you to get home before too late, in order to catch the annual airing of the new animated classic Scared Shrekless. In a weekend where the Shrek franchise is already hyped up once again thanks to the new Puss in Boots cinematic adventure, Scared Shrekless brings Team Green on a series of haunted story adventures, with Shrek hoping to prove that nothing can scare an Ogre. The special spooks ABC on Monday, October 31st – Halloween night – at just before 8pm (listed as “7:58pm” – two extra minutes of scary!)
The half hour (or thirty-TWO minute) holiday special is set on Halloween night, with Shrek, Donkey, Pinocchio, the Three Little Pigs, Wolf, and Gingy telling scariest stories inside Lord Farquaad’s abandoned (and frightening!) castle.
Gingy starts the first story, The Bride of Gingy, Gingerbread Man’s spoof of Bride of Frankenstein, where Gingy asks the Muffin Man for a new girlfriend made with loads of sugar. Donkey and Puss tell the next story about them taking shelter from a thunderstorm at Boot’s Motel, the pair’s spoof of Bates Motel. Shrek gets to tell the final story, The Shreksorcist, a spoof of The Exorcist, about baby-sitting a crazed Pinocchio.
Which character makes it through each story without being afraid? And Which one of you can do the same, from home? Find out this Halloween!!!
