Spookley The Square Pumpkin Review & Blu-Ray Combo & Plush Toy Giveaway


In a world where the only good pumpkins are round pumpkins, Spookley is teased because of his square shape. Shunned by the other pumpkins, Spookley is befriended by Edgar, Allan and Poe, three hilarious spiders, who convince him that, square or not, he has a right to be the Pick of the Patch. But Big Tom and Little Tom, the pumpkin bullies in the patch, continue to tease and taunt Spookley. Encouraged by kindly Jack Scarecrow and his bat sidekicks, Boris and Bella, Spookley tries his best, but he isn’t sure he has what it takes until a mighty storm threatens Holiday Hill Farm. When the storm blows the round pumpkins across the patch towards the raging river, Spookley realizes it is up to him and his square shape to save the day.

Our thoughts:
We watched this movie with our granddaughters. It was a fun way to kick off a Halloween themed sleepover. The movie is cute, and both girls (3 & 10) enjoyed it. We really like the message, and love that we can count on Disney Junior to keep things age appropriate for younger kids. Spookley is really cute, but he doesn’t carry the story on his own, there are several other adorable and fun characters that make this movie entertaining. Jack Scarecrow is pretty cool. Also fun are the bonus features, picture books – The Legend of Lyla the Lovesick Ladybug has become a fast favorite.

The animated television special, based on the bestselling Spookley book series, has been a long time Halloween tradition for families, and will once again be broadcast this October on Disney Junior.



This year, Spookley the Square Pumpkin also returns as the “Official Spokes-Pumpkin” of National Bullying Prevention Month through a partnership with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.
