Man, I wish they showed more of the older movies. I liked Scream Team, wonder why they haven't aired it the past several years. The Even Steven's and Lizzie Mcguire Halloween episodes were great too.

The movies that are noteworthy that I have seen before are Tower of Terror, and the Halloweentown movies. One of them stunk though. I forgot which one, but if you want to see any of those movies, I would highly recommend those.

I'd love to see someone - anyone - show "The Halloween Tree". It won an Emmy, for good ness sake, and I'm under the impression it was an ABC production, now owned by Disney.

For that matter, does Disney intend to show their animated "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" at all?
"Hocus Pocus"?

I tend to stay away from Disney now. Sure, it's great that they're airing all these Halloween movies, but the thought of having to endure all the ads for Hannah Montana or Jonas or what other tripe they have to offer is what keeps me away. They lost my respect after they put Brandy and Mr. Whiskers on a crappy time slot, but that's another story.

I'm pretty sure Warners owns the right to The Halloween Tree. It aired on Cartoon Network. You can find a torrent of a vhs rip online if you look.

Really? Where is the Halloween I once knew, they are taking away everything that was once good. Anybody remember on Nick "Are you Afraid of the Dark", that show actually gave me night mares. One saving factor is Chiller channel on Direct tv, they still play tales from the crypt and what not.

I am a bit disappointed at the line-up but at least they got a few classics in there...I remember in the 90's where I would go to a friend's house and we would watch "Don't Look Under The Bed", "Mom's Got A Date With A Vampire", "Hocus Pocus", "Good Ghouls Gone Bad" , etc. Those were the good days :eek:...

Disney and Nick used to be amazing but now...not so much. I'm so happy I own most of the DCOM's on dvd and some of the classic Nick shows as well. When I have my own family my kids will be able to see what so many have missed :)

I hope some of these get more than 1 or 2 airings. Phantom of the Megaplex is one of my favorite DCOMs and I don't recall seeing it last year. It's like they just played it once or something.

I love the Even Stevens and Lizzie McGuire Halloween episodes. They should always find a way to squeeze those in every October.

True. I believe that there is no region lock thingy (or whatever you call it) on it so you can play it on any DVD player. It's indeed well worth it.

where is hocus pocus!? Thats seriosuly one of my favs. I don't get why they put harry potter on. It's not really halloween so why waste slots with it? They used to have some really good movies and now it's just kinda dwindled.

It's not exactly a Halloween movie but it involves magic and magic is sometimes associated with Halloween. But I agree that they have tons of other movies they could use. Like Hocus Pocus, The Scream Team or Under Wraps, which I'm surprised they won't air this year. It's usually a staple for Disney Channel.

@ Black Friday:

Hey Black Friday, you didn't happen to get this list from Wikipedia did you? You know you can't trust everything you see on Wikipedia. I'm checking it right now and it's the only source of info on Halloween of Stars and there are no links on the page that can confirm this info.

Yeah, this might be a wait and see type of thing. I would really be suprised if they didn't play Hocus Pocus.

I wish they would play some of there older Halloween specials but I guess that is a thing of the past.
