Can you believe it is almost the spooky season? Everyone is anxiously awaiting for the cool crisp autumn season, including the spooktacular holiday — Halloween!

And what better way to prepare and get in the Halloween spirit than to binge some of the classic Disney Halloween movies. From Halloweentown to The Haunted Mansion to the iconic Hocus Pocusthere are so many Halloween Disney films to choose from.

We recently reported Disney+ adding a brand new Halloween collection to its streaming service, but there is one Halloween special in particular I would love for Disney+ to add.

The Wonderful World of Disney released a special titled Disney’s Halloween Treat years ago, and honestly, it is one of my fondest childhood memories. We used to gather around the TV when I was younger, with a big bowl of popcorn, and watch the entire Halloween special. But now, the only way to currently find it is on YouTube.

So this sparked a thought — Why doesn’t Disney+ add Disney’s Halloween Treat to its streaming service? They already have classics including Disneyland Around the Seasons, Disney The Story of Animated Drawing and more so why not add this amazing Halloween special as well?

  • Clip of Pluto’s Sweater
