HF* Spookley The Square Pumpkin DVD Review

Holiday Hill Farm, where every day is a holiday. The movie starts off with a pair of cute and colourful bats who come across something they've never seen before, the bats head off to find Jack the scarecrow who soon attracts plenty of pumpkins on his short trip, to where the bats discovered something special. Jack discovers what the bats had found, a square pumpkin named Spookly. One not so nice pumpkin takes it upon himself to bully little Spookley, just because he is square, because he is different to the rest!

Jack organises his very own Olympics called the Jack a lympics, where the pumpkins and Spookley the Square Pumpkin take part in a number of races & games to win a crown. With support from the 3 spider friends Spookley has befriended, Spookley bless him tries his best to take part in the first race, and fails bless him as he can't jump like the others as they are round and bouncy and he is square and flat.

The second game is pumpkin style bowling, with the pumpkins rolling like a bowling ball to knock down aubergines, again Spookley fails because of his square shape, and the inability to roll. The third and final event is equally just as bad and see's the end of the games with BoBo being crowned the winner!

A bad storm starts off the day before Halloween and all the round pumpkins are blown into a cart with the bad gust of wins. Spookley on the other hand, stays put due to his square shape. Jack the scarecrow finds himself in trouble when a tree branch sets on fire due to the lighting, only for the branch to fall on poor Jack, setting part of his hand on fire, Spookley saves the day by putting out the flames. Spookley continues to save the day by rescuing all the round pumpkins before the cart rolls into deep water.

Spookley is accepted by the pumpkins and is happily picked by the farmer to be proudly shown off on his porch as the Halloween pumpkin, the farmer is amazed to see a square pumpkin! A happy ending after all and a lesson to us all, never judge a book by its cover.

Based on the best selling children's book The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin by Joe Troiano with lots of catchy songs, Spookley the Square Pumpkin is a certificate U and is a great buy this Autumn and the perfect Halloween gift for children of all ages! Available to buy from all good DVD retailers including supermarkets.
