The Halloween Tree Movie Online
The Halloween Tree is a Daytime Emmy Award-winning 1993 feature-length animated television movie produced by Hanna-Barbera based on Ray Bradbury's 1972 fantasy novel of the same name. It tells the story of a group of trick-or-treating children who learn about the origins and influences of Halloween when one of their friends is spirited away by mysterious forces. The movie is often featured on Cartoon Network during the Halloween season. It features the voice of Leonard Nimoy as the children's guide, Mr. Moundshroud. The film opens to the voice of a narrator (Ray Bradbury) describing one small town's preparations for Halloween night. Four friends are shown at their respective homes donning costumes excitedly: Jenny as a witch, Ralph as a mummy; Wally as a monster; and finally Tom Skelton as a skeleton. They all hurry so as not be late meeting up with each other and the infamous Pip (described as their communal best friend and as a truly amazing person and friend which the narrator asserts by saying, "Some say that on the day he was born, all the soda pop bottles in the world fizzled over. Pipken, who could yell louder, sing better, and eat more popcorn. Pip, the greatest boy who ever lived"). Jenny, Wally, Ralph and Tom meet up, but Pip is absent. Believing it a trick, as Pip would never miss his favorite holiday, the four head to Pip's home on the edge of town. They arrive at Pip's house, only to find it bare of decoration, with no pumpkins or bowls of candy set out on the porch, and Pip being loaded into the back of an ambulance, with his parents to ride with him. A note on the door written by Pip explains that he is being rushed off for an emergency with the note saying that he did not want to spoil their Halloween but had to go to the hospital due to something about his appendix (implying that he is in severe need of an appendectomy, an operation he may die without). Pip ends the note telling his friends to continue without him and using his catch phrase, "Ready, set, go!". The four friends feel they cannot start Halloween without him, so they follow the path of the ambulance to visit him at the hospital. Tom suggests they take a short-cut through the woods, which is apparently known for being a frightening place, and Wally nervously remarks it would take them through a dark and eerie ravine.
