The Halloween Tree DVD Review

Synopsis: Sit on the edge of your seat and enjoy master storyteller Ray Bradbury's classic adventure of four youths who try to save the spirit of their friend Kip from the ghosts of Halloween past. The four encounter a mysterious character, Moundshroud who takes them on a magical journey that sweeps them back as far as 4,000 years and touches down in exotic places all over the world like Egypt, England, France and Mexico. Along the way they discover the magic and meaning of Halloween - and friendship. This enchanting adventure features the voice talents of Leonard Nimoy as Moundshroud and the animation wizardry of Hanna-Barbera. It's a story as timeless as Halloween itself - a bubbling cauldron of thrills and suspense that will stir the imagination of the entire family. Bradbury's popular story is destined to become a perennial Halloween favorite.
Review: The Halloween Tree is a fantastic Halloween themed animated feature from 1993, based on Ray Bradbury's novel from the 1970s.  In fact, Star Trek creator Bradbury provides the voice of the narrator, while Leonard "spock" Nimoy provides another cast voice...that of the children's guide Mr. Moundshroud.  This one was well animated and a lot of fun....our kids enjoyed it thoroughly.  In an age when the holiday special is all but gone, this obscure and lost find, brought back by the Warner Archive, is such a treat!
