Happy October, Kinky Kreeps!

“First of all, it was October, a rare month for boys. Not that all months aren’t rare. But there be bad and good, as the pirates say. Take September, a bad month: school begins. Consider August, a good month: school hasn’t begun yet. July, well, July’s really fine: there’s no chance in the world for school. June, no doubting it, June’s best of all, for the school doors spring wide and September’s a billion years away.

But you take October, now. School’s been on a month and you’re riding easier in the reins, jogging along. You got time to think of the garbage you’ll dump on old man Prickett’s porch, or the hairy-ape costume you’ll wear to the YMCA the last night of the month. And if it’s around October twentieth and everything smoky-smelling and the sky orange and ash gray at twilight, it seems Halloween will never come in a fall of broomsticks and a soft flap of bedsheets around corners.”

-Ray Bradbury


A very mysterious, spooky, and all-together ooky October 1st to all you groovy ghoulies and cool ghouls out there!

October is indeed a special month.  For us ho-rror aficionados, ghouls and ghosts roam throughout the year, but it’s the Halloween season when they reach their full potential and dominate this mortal plane. The wind bustles with the specters of Autumn and the monsters are no longer confined to the dark. For this most glorious month, the grotesque and beautiful become one. Those who generally dwell in the light take time to ho-nor the creatures of the dark. It’s truly the most wonderful time of the year! 🙂

For this entire month, we’ll be handing out both tricks and treats to all you wonderful freaks! We’re painting the town black-and-orange with some of the scariest, creepiest things that go bump in the night! So clap for the Wolfman and whistle past the graveyard, ’cause it’s Halloween Time, Kinky Ho-mies!! 🙂 xoxoxo

Splatterday Mourning Cartoon: The Addams Family – N.J. Addams

Ho-wdy, Kinky Kreeps!

It’s a bootiful #SplatterdayMourning, so Spring out of bed, ’cause it’s toon time! 🙂

Today is October Eve, so who better to spend this creepy-crawly day with than the family that lives Halloween 24/7, The Addams Family!
The Addams clan are certainly no strangers to cartoons, having been  (re)animated many, many times throughout the fears years. Their first cartoon series was in 1972, and they appeared on The New Scooby Doo Movies around that same slime time. They’ve been in cartoon commercials and were rumored to be starring in a full-length stop-motion film by Tim Burton, so The Addamses have a lot of animated awesomeness to their name. As great as all of those Addams Family terror-vision toons are, my personal favorite is the 1992 series, the spine-tingling subject of this #Splatterday!

Oh, howl I LOOOOOOVVE this series! First airing in 1992 and ending in 1993, this incarnation of The Addams Family was made in the swingin’ wake of the 1991 film. What was spooky-cool about this series is that they got the OG Gomez, Mr. John Astin, to once again play the freaky father! How GHOUL is that? Plus, the humor is surprisingly witty and very Addams. For a tie-in, it was pretty groovy!

It used to air on Cartoon Network and later became a staple of Boomerang’s Halloween line-up. If you saw this ‘toon on in the last few years, you knew that the Headless Horseman would be making his yearly ride very soon. To me, this cartoon is the perfect way to usher in the Halloween season and skull-ebrate the triumphant return of October. 🙂
Happy Almost October, Ho-rror Ho-mies!! Enjoy the #Splatterday spoopiness! 🙂 xoxo
