If you go to this page, and than go like 5 things down, you will see in pdf, what stuff they are going to have:

ABC Family Medianet

The stuff this year is Batman 1, 2, and 3 (older ones), America's Funniest Videos (Halloween), Addam's Family & Addam's Family Values, Corpse Bride, and some more. I think they are the ones that have Hocus Pocus instead of Disney Channel for the people that want to watch that movie.

I love the halloween town movies. Mainly because the first time I watched them was when I was with my girlfriend (now fiance) and it reminds me of us when we were in high school. Those and Hokus Pokus

You don't know how wrong you are my friend. I'm the exact same way. I guess it doesn't help that I have the word 'weird' in my username. lol. :D

I was so happy to finally get my Hocus Pocus DVD. Took me two tries to finally get it but it arrived after Halloween. I packed it up so I could enjoy it every October during the "season".

For me, even though I'm 27...it's always Disney's Legend of Sleepy Hollow (which I hardly see on tv anymore so I just pull out my trusty DVD) and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!!! I wasn't too thrilled with the Halloween towns. Hocus Pocus!!! I used to be able to recite that movie word for word...without the movie to help! LOL Love it!

And I agree about Batman and TMNT!!! So not Halloween and shouldn't be considered for the lineup.

With Batman they're going for the whole dark city of crime angle and it'll probably boost some Batman costume purchases. And TMNT is nowhere on the schedule.

While the Batman movies may not be Halloween'ish..I'm actually looking forward to them! My kid hasn't seen 2 or 3 so we'll enjoy that. One movie I'd LOVE to see in the line up is The Crow, that was my mothers favorite movie and I'd love to see it again and turn my kid on to it. "Halloween's not until manana"

I love the halloweentown movies, and the legend of sleepy hollow and charlie brown. They all remind me of when I was a kid around halloween and they put me into the spirit! I also have a bunch of old vhs's with taped halloween specials for looney toons and stuff like that.

and as for abc family, this is the same channel that plays the harry potter movies for christmas. again, neither the harry potter movies nor the batman movies are bad movies, they're just such a stretch. there are so many ACTUAL halloween and christmas movies out there, why bother?

There isn't any TMNT in the pdf but they are showing all three Batman movies on the thirteenth night.
Oops that was last year. I mixed both of them together. The reason is because I was looking at that website abcfamily, and it showed Turtles from last year, but Batman is for 2009. Sorry.

This is from 2008 in which you see the video of the turtles been show: (not this year, sorry again)

It's all about ratings. As long as Harry Potter and Batman get a lot of ratings during the holidays they keep showing them. Harry Potter is only a bit of a stretch since it involves dark themes and witches & wizards.

I'm disappointed with what they have because it seems like they're limiting every night to just 1 movie or special. Unless those are just highlights or something. What we need is all day marathons and themed days .aka. a day dedicated to ghost or vampires or whatever. I wish I was in control of scheduling, I'd make a frightfully good 13 days of Halloween.

Does anybody know if TCM is doing the classic horror movie-thon? I can't get enough of Plan 9 From Outer Space.

Harry Potter for Halloween would make more sense, but i'm saying that they show Harry Potter for Christmas. That's a stretch.

But ur right, it's all about ratings.
