    Well this is pretty exciting news. It would be nice if Disney got back in to the animated Halloween specials. My brother and I grew up on those and it would be great to make some new memories with his son by having some new Halloween specials.

      Same here, my brothers and I grow up with this kind of tv shows, it would be awesome to watch some stuff like that again

  2. OMG! This is great news! Just short of a stop-motion film by Henry Selick,an animated Halloween special is the sort of thing I want to see with the Haunted Mansion!

    It would be even nicer if they would release archival titles like Mr. Boogedy.
