Bunnicula, the Vampire Rabbit

Image
When strange accidents happen at the factory where Mr. Monroe works, and vegetables are drained of their juices, the neighbors as well as Harold the dog and Chester the cat suspect that the new-found family bunny is really a vampire.

Bunnicula is a children's book series written by Deborah Howe and James Howe, featuring a vampire rabbit named Bunnicula who sucks the juice out of vegetables. Deborah Howe died in 1978, months before the book first saw print. The series consists of seven books, with the latest published in 2006.

So warm up the apple cider pop the kettle corn sit back relax and enjoy this Halloween-themed edition of the ABC Weekend Special as aired over WLS Channel 7, of "Bunnicula, the Vampire Rabbit" which originally aired on January 9th, 1982.

Synopsis: The Super Monsters use their powers to get their neighbors in the Halloween spirit, then help a nervous friend see there's nothing to be afraid of.

Everybody's favorite holiday might be Halloween, but when you’ve got young children, that’s not usually the case. Sure, kindergarteners love treats, but not all of them love tricks ⏤ and they certainly don’t love masks covered in blood or zombies emerging from the grave. I remember when my girls were growing up it was all about Wonder Pet's, Yo Gabba Gabba, and Elmo when it came to a safe Halloween special to watch with them (and we still watch today).
