If any of you guys missed it on Thursday (or for those of you who saw and loved it, like us) NBC and DreamWorks are replaying the Halloween-themed Shrek holiday special tonight, Scared Shrekless. The network originally aired the 30 minute episode on Thursday, but brought it back due to popular demand (and horrifying relativity!) for the Halloween weekend. Halloween is Shrek’s favorite holiday – and this year, he’s planning a night of frights, ogre-style. Instead of the usual tricks or treats, Shrek ups the ante and challenges Fiona, Donkey, Puss in Boots, and the other fairy tale characters to spend the night in Lord Farquaad’s haunted castle telling scary stories. One by one, they compete through the night, putting their own fairytale spin on infamous spine-tingling tales that everyone knows and loves! The last one to be scared Shrekless wins. In the tradition of Shrek the Halls, Scared Shrekless is a half-hour animated special delivering holiday fun for the whole family. TOON in tonight, October 30th, at 8pm!
The special features Mike Myers as Shrek, Cameron Diaz as Fiona, and Antonio Banderas as Puss in Boots to relive the film franchise’s success – missing only Eddie Murphy as Donkey, with Dean Edwards filling in.
