  • It isn\\\'t really a Halloween special, and its different from the usual episodes, but its fun nonetheless.

    The episode is three different cartoons of varying quality tied together. The opening segment is the only one that directly deals with Halloween and has June and her friends going out trick-or-treating. Its fun to see the costumes everyone chooses (June goes as Elvis-the Vegas Elvis-and you\\\'ve got to see it to believe it!) The middle segment has June going to the ends of the magical realms trying to make trades for the item she needs to reverse a spell. This is the old \\\"trading chain\\\" plot done before in sitcoms and cartoons, and I think it goes on too long. The third segment has our heroine in the wrestling ring against a huge opponent. This segment seems to be inspired by the old Looney Tunes and is surprising in two respects: June (who up to now always won her battles with ease) gets clobbered; second, she finds herself on the receiving end of a good deal of cartoon violence. The violence doesn\\\'t come across as hurtful, and its fun to see how the animators distort June\\\'s features as the match continues. My one complaint about this segment was Monroe\\\'s utter cluelessness during the match- he watches as June walks around in a semi-conscious daze and assumes she is just playing to the crowd. Ultimately a fun episode, one that seems a lot different from the rest of series

      June: Huh-uh.
      Ray Ray: A naner second? (Jody runs by screaming again)
      June: Nope. (Ray Ray's monster mask falls off a tree branch and lands in Jody's arms, she screams) Ya sure gave Jody a coniption though.

    • Jody: Hey, maybe for Halloween, we could rent a scary movie?
      June: No way, you'll freak out.
      Jody: Will not. (Ray Ray jumps out of the bushes in an alien costume, Jody screams and hides behind June) It's gonna eat our brains! Now I'm never gonna get into college!
      June: Oh please with your grades you'll totally pass the S.A.T.'s.
      Jody: Grades aren't gonna help me if my brain is eaten!
