Bugs Bunny's Howl-oween Special

It's the first of October and Fall is here.  It's also the month where I start getting into the Halloween spirit!  As a kid, I couldn't wait to see the Halloween specials that would be shown on TV this time of year.  I just discovered this Bugs Bunny's Howl-oween Special (1978) at the store and couldn't pass it up.  This is a special that contains parts of many different cartoons with a Halloween theme.  Witch Hazel is the main attraction in this special and I always loved her.  She's the witch that would zip off the screen with a "HeHeHe" and her bobby pins would be left spinning in the air behind her.  She's always trying to cook up one of the regulars (Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, etc.).  In addition to Bugs and Daffy, we also see Sylvester and Tweety and Dr. Jekyll, Porky Pig and Sylvester at the haunted hotel, Speedy Gonzales playing Witch Hazel, and Bugs at Count Dracula's castle.  These cartoons were always some of my favorites growing up and I'm glad I could revisit them this Halloween season.
