There will the thrills and chills aplenty – in a gentle, family-friendly sort of way – in Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest, an upcoming PBS Kids special that finds the mischievous monkey and his yellow-hatted pal celebrating the holiday in style.
In Boo Fest, George and his human pal Allie set off on a quest to discover whether the “Legend of No Noggin” – a story about a spooky scarecrow who haunts the countryside – is true. Along the way, George tries to find the perfect Halloween costume and also stops by a “kinda sorta haunted house” – as you’ll see in the adorable musical clip below.
The hour-long Boo Fest special airs Oct. 28 on PBS Kids. That week, the network will also feature Halloween programming from shows including Thomas & Friends and Peg + Cat. (Check local listings for airtimes).
