David S. Pumpkins wants his jacket back.

You mean, the Critic wants his jacket back. The Critic wore it for Nostalgiaween starting Oct. 4, 2016. David S. Pumpkins aired Oct. 22, 2016. Any questions?

Darkling

Doug had the jacket first. Seriously look how old some of his Nostalgiaween videos are.

To tell you the truth, I never heard if the Scary Godmother specials back in the day.
I’ve seen better animation on Jimmy Neutron (the movie and the TV show).
Nice jokes on Whose Line is it Anyway, The Magic School Bus, and Doctor Strange.
“Skeleton in the Closet”? OMG, that is funny.
I’ve seen better Halloween parties in the Halloween specials of Power Rangers, and a majority of them are clipshows.

I think I remembered that this was aired on Cartoon Network, but by god, what the hell is with the CGI? This makes Reboot look like a Pixar production! And what the hell is with all those faces!? Those are the stuff of nightmares!

Thing is… this was made by the people who made ReBoot.

Goldstar
Guest

Yep. Both this and Reboot were produced by Mainframe, which also produced the Weird-Ohs animated series that ran on Fox Family Channel. Another forgotten cartoon.

Archanubis
Guest

To say nothing of Beast Wars: Transformers.

TheGreatDeadpoolio

Don’t forget Shadow Raiders. Mainframe Entertainment pretty much made all of my childhood shows.

Aotrs Commander
Guest

I was flabbergasted for a moment, wondering how they (who did those really good, well-written shows) could have produced that…

And THEN I remembered the skeleton. And the sign-your-soul joke. And then it made more sense, because it would seem in character for them to squeeze those in, even in an ostensibly a for-small-children throwaway thing they probably did for the psycheck.

(Since in 2004, they’d be past the Reboot/Shadow Raiders/Transformers point. They may even not have had all the same team by the time they did this, of course.)

You guys are forgetting one other MainFrame Cartoon, Casper’s Haunted Christmas 😀

I find bad animation (like, ugly art & terribly animated stuff) creepy. It makes me unconfortable

It’s the uncanny valley at work.

I love the intro. I think Demo Reel was so long ago a decent amount of your fans might not even know about it. And I hate shitty animation. It always completely ruins a movie no matter how good the acting or story is.

funny as hell

I honestly thought this was insanely charming and refreshing. Sure the style is….questionable, but for some reason, it works.

Tabitha St. Germain, such a great actress in such lackluster specials.

MrGermanblood

Can you review ‘Scooby Doo and the Ghoul School’?

The Real Silverstar
Guest

The rosters for these theme months are typically picked out, shot and edited in advance, so the videos slated for this month’s Nostalgiaween are most likely already in the can; if Ghoul School is on the list for this year’s installments, cool, if it’s not, well maybe next year.

YES! Let Nostalgia-ween BEGIN! MWAAAAAH HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAA!

TragicGuineaPig

Quick question for anyone who can answer: how long after he posts an episode here does it take for Doug to post it on YouTube as well? Because this Vidme player is just atrocious.

Goldstar
Guest

It’s usually on YouTube the following day.

The Real Silverstar
Guest

Yeah, new NC videos typically go up on VidMe on Tuesday and then to YouTube on Wednesday. However if you really don’t want to wait until tomorrow, you can always download the video and watch it offline.

TragicGuineaPig
Guest

That doesn’t work so great anymore. Vidme splits the audio and video tracks, so that, if you do download the video, you get no audio.

I don’t know what it is, but YouTube just seems to work so much better; I swear, the video even looks better.

But thanks for the suggestion.

TragicGuineaPig
Guest

Thanks. I might have to start watching these a day later.

TragicGuineaPig

Okay, that “Skeleton in the Closet” gag was pretty amusing.

TragicGuineaPig

Also, did everyone remember? TODAY IS TOMMY WISEAU DAY!

Is anyone else surprised that “Melvin: Brother of the Joker” wasn’t in the “Joke Cemetery”?

Mides
Guest

It was so bad that they had to cremate it and spread the ashes in the Arctic where Norm of the North lies.

Fyrmer

I was surprised there wasn’t a “Bat Credit Card” tombstone.

Hey, I remember this movie. I used to watch it when I was a kid. Ah, good times… Anyway, it was nice seeing the Nostalgia Critic rip it apart because, for how much I liked as a kid… Yeah, it is very awkwardly done. So… Yes, this was a nice opening to Nostlgia-ween. Looking forward to next week.
Also, if you didn’t know, this film had a sequel made too. Hoping that gets reviewed too, either this Nostalgia-ween, or the next. I don’t care.

Blue Griffin
Guest

Probably next year unless it gets tossed into a sequel month.

Twilight Man
Guest

I realize that he is (arguably) running out of “So Bad It’s Funny” material but I personally do not like when he reviews “For Kids” material like this one or “Cats Don’t Dance”. OK, we get it, you liked it as a kid; you don’t know why now-a-days. That does not mean that it is awful. It’s just……. “For Kids”!!!

TheRedHawk

I’ve never seen this movie before, but I knew this was gonna get bad when I saw the first frame of the movie

Blayshy
Guest

This is creepy as fuck. And not in the good way.

JamiSings
Guest

Okay, who do I have to bribe or kidnap to get Doug to review a good movie? Like The Mummy with Boris Karloff or House Of Wax with Vincent Price? Seriously, he deserves a treat after reviewing this crud!

JohnnyElRojo
Guest

It’s me, or the living room of the Scary Godmother is the one of Courage the Cowardly Dog?
Oh my god… SHE IS THE ONE THAT FINALLY GOT MURIEL, ISN’T IT?!

Blue Griffin
Guest

I guess I was 16 when they replayed these, but I do remember enjoying this even though the animation is bad. Kinda a sit and watch while munching on candy movie or background noise.

Oh and there’s a sequel…. hope you enjoy that treasure.

Never even heard of this thing and I’ve been watching CN since the mid 90’s

Hi, Doug! Long-time viewer, first-time commenter. I look forward to Nostalgia-Ween every year! – Love the Simpsons intro! Very creative! – I remember this on Cartoon Network all the time when I was growing up. Never cared for it honestly, and I’m usually a fan of weird, off-the-wall specials like this. Glad you gave it a fair treatment, though! Couple requests – take them how you will 🙂 I’m sure you have all your Nostalgia-Ween specials picked out for this year, but maybe these could make their way into future years. – A collective review of Scooby-Doo animated movies (old… Read more »

There’s a sequel to this fun little animation, by the way. Honestly, I enjoy both of them. I know they’re not all that great, but I just had fun with them.

“God, early CGI was scary…”

Yeah, yeah some of it was…..

Jiro
Guest

Just letting you know, there’s a sequel to Scary Godmother.

Jalen Washington
Guest

Funny enough, I loved this as a kid, and I still love it now, but seeing you react to it and give your honest opinion about it is HILARIOUS to me.

Robanah
Guest

Can you review House of Wax the 2005 remake? So full of horror movie tropes, plus…. Paris Hilton lol

Hanglyman
Guest

I feel like almost nothing happened. It’s like they took 3 minutes of a normal Halloween special and stretched it out.

I never got the Closest thing until now, now that you mentioned it. Although I’m not sure if that was intentional, but I suppose it could have been. But that aside we shouldn’t just associate flamboyant male characters as gay, when they could just as well be straight or at least bisexual, or even having no sexual or romantic preference at all. But in any case, it’s up for the audience to decide for themselves; and personally I sometimes shipped him with Scary Godmother, as a surrogate mother and father couple to Anne; but if it makes others happy I… Read more »

I don’t know, I think the joke about the skeleton character being “in the closet” pretty much says what his deal is. Kids, you’ll get that joke when you’re a little older.

Asexual people aren’t typically associated with flamboyant behavior; they simply have no interest in persuing a physical/romantic relationship.

Also, not to nitpick, but the little girl’s name is Hanna Marie.

Raptor Rex
Guest

Spongebob’s Asexual.

Honore de Ballsack
Guest

considering how bad the animation is I thought her name was Hanna Barbera.

Raptor Rex
Guest

I just wanna apologize, btw if there was something wrong with what I said.

Goldstar
Guest

There’s no need for apologies. You said that Spaongebob Squarepants was asexual, and based on what I’ve seen of the character, I’d be inclined to agree. I’ve only seen the show sporadically, but he’s never expressed any romantic or sexual desires, or at least none that I’m aware of.

Raptor Rex
Guest

I mean for the previous comment I posted yestarday.

ThatLurkerGuy
Guest

No, Critic, it’s cool! Howard the Duck is good now! (When it’s not going on about politics, I mean!)

And yet somehow, with the appearance of a Skrull-tainted shapeshifting girl with clothes sometimes made of flesh and female clones of Howard and Rocket Raccoon, it’s even weirder.

mccuish

I remember enjoying this special the first time I saw it.

“John Waters wishes he was in something so kitsch”

Best line in the review!
