Everybody’s favorite square pumpkin is now the “Pick of the Patch” this Halloween season. For the first time ever, SPOOKLEY THE SQUARE PUMPKIN can be yours to own in High Definition – available in a new Blu-ray Combo pack and on Digital HD from Cinedigm.

SPOOKLEY THE SQUARE PUMPKIN, written and created by Joe Troiano, tells the story of a square pumpkin living in a round pumpkin patch on Holiday Hill Farm. Although Spookley initially faces ridicule from his fellow patch-mates, he goes on to save the day during a terrible storm. As a result, all the pumpkins in the patch learn that the things that make you different make you special.

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. PACER, a non-profit organization based in Minneapolis, provides innovative resources for students, parents, educators, and others, and recognizes bullying as a serious community issue that impacts education, physical and emotional health, and the safety and well-being of students.  For more information on Spookley’s activities with PACER, visit: www.PACER.org/Bullying/
PROGRAM SYNOPSIS
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.

The 411:



The animations are nice and bright with a strong message about bullying. Spookley is in a pumpkin patch with a a lot of other pumpkins who are of course round. They feel that Spookley is weird, off and doesn't belong with them because he is square. They definitely do not want him to compete in the Jackolympics contest. Thankfully Jack Scrarecrow believes Spookley is a pumpkin like everyone else and deserves to compete.

  Spookley has been hearing all this negativity and doesn't feel important or like he belongs until he meets three singer spiders who tell him why he is important and why Halloween is fun! They decide they will help him to win.



I think kids will feel very bad about how Spookley is treated and hopefully will be able to identify how making someone feel bad makes you feel bad too!
