      • Mr. Tickle: Please take a seat so I can tell you (eerie music plays) The Legend of Clownfoot.
        Skeebo: I look forward to this all year long. I've been practicing my sound effects.
        JoJo: Me too. The best thing about this story is that all of us are a part of it. So first, I gotta teach you our part. We make the sound effects.

        Skeebo: You mean it?
        JoJo: Uh-huh. If you keep trying to scare us, one of these Halloweens, it's gonna work.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Toccata and Fugue

        The music played in the organ is called Toccata and Fugue, a song played by Johann Sebastian Bach.

      • Mr. Tickle: (as female singers oooh in background) Shaking in his floppy shoes / Grandpa heard a roar / Just then he turned around / A knock came on the door.
        The lyrics of this song, the music and the background vocalizing all seem reminsicent of the one-hit Halloween wonder, "The Monster Mash" released by Bobby "Boris" Pickett.
