Scared Shrekless hits ABC on Halloween night

Tonight’s special on ABC has it all: we’ve got everyone’s favorite green ogre, Shrek. We’ve got the star of this weekend’s big blockbuster debut, Puss in Boots. We’ve got three frightening stories, lots of candy, and tons of various Halloween costumes. What does it all equal? Scared Shrekless! The DreamWorks Animation Halloween themed holiday special plays tonight at just-before-8pm; 7:58pm to be exact. Yes, that’s right, it means ABC is pushing around Dancing with the Stars — see, cartoons are that powerful! The special features three tales: The Bride of Gingy, Boot’s Motel, and The Shreksorcist, each attempting to scare the other story tellers. If you make it home from candy collecting in time, be sure to check (Shrek?) it out!

DreamWorks Animation reviving Lidsville in CG

DreamWorks Animation reviving Lidsville in CG

DreamWorks Animation has made enormous strides in the world of CG animation, rivaling Disney’s Pixar for top spot in the world of cinematic cartoons. Along the way, they’ve tackled a number of subjects, including ogres, zoo animals, monsters, and aliens. So what’s up next for the studio powerhouse? How about the 1970, live-action, Saturday morning adventure about a magical hat? …seriously! The original show was called Lidsville, a Sid & Marty Krofft series (just like Land of the Lost, remade recently with Will Ferrell) that ran for three seasons. Now, Conrad Vernon (who also provided the Gingerbread Man’s voice from Shrek), Alex Schwartz, and Chris Kuser will recreate the concept in CG and 3D for today’s audience.
