Spongbob Halloween Video DVD
SpongeBob SquarePants - Halloween
Halloween boasts a full hour of deep-sea spooks featuring Nickelodeon's jolly sponge with the cubical trousers. In 'Scaredy Pants' easy-to-scare SpongeBob attempts to come up with the scariest costume ever--and exceeds beyond his wildest dreams. 'Imitation Krabs' concerns Plankton's evil robotic plan to trick SpongeBob into revealing Mr. Krab's secret krabby patty recipe. 'Frankendoodle,' a spoof on Frankenstein, has SpongeBob drawing a self-portrait with a magical pencil he found. It proceeds to come to life, wreaking havoc all over Bikini Bottom. SpongeBob turns into a 'snailcat' in 'I Was a Teenage Gary' when he's accidentally injected with pet Gary's medicine. And in 'Squidward the Unfriendly Ghost,' SpongeBob and pal, Patrick the starfish, mistake his grumpy talcum powder-covered neighbor for a grown-up Casper. The educational value may be minimal, but the humor quotient is high in these five installments of the popular series.
The modern celebration of Halloween has its roots in ancient traditions, notably the Celtic festival of Samhain, which was observed around November 1st. On Samhain, it was believed that the veil between the world of the living and the dead was at its thinnest, allowing spirits to roam the Earth. People would wear costumes and light bonfires to ward off these spirits. With the spread of Christianity, Pope Gregory III designated November 1st as All Saints' Day, a day to honor saints and martyrs. The evening before became All Hallows' Eve, which over time was shortened to Halloween. Irish immigrants in the 19th century helped popularize Halloween in the United States, where it evolved into a community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities like trick-or-treating. Today, Halloween has become a major commercial holiday, complete with costumes, decorations, and a strong emphasis on horror and the supernatural. Its global reach and adoption of new traditions, like haunted houses and pumpkin carving, make it a continually evolving celebration that transcends its ancient origins.
