Fall is just around the corner. That means temperatures are soon going to begin turning along with the leaves on the trees. It also means the growing anticipation for the annual holiday season beginning with every kid’s favorite holiday, Halloween. In celebration of the big night, PBS Distribution has announced that it will release a new WordWorld DVD next month to both get kids excited for Halloween and educate them at the same time.
PBS Distribution will release WordWorld’s new DVD Halloween Fun on Tuesday, September 1st. The DVD features five Halloween-themed episodes from the family favorite PBS Kids series including: “A Spooky Kooky Halloween,” “Sheep’s Halloween Costume,” “Dog’s Camping Adventure,” “Nightlight,” and “One Hat Fits All.” In the collection’s opener–“A Spooky, Kooky Halloween,” it’s the night before Halloween and Pig is sleepwaking. This leads his friends to think he’s a ghost. In “Sheep’s Halloween Costume,” Sheep has a problem. Her friends all say they need pieces of her costume for their own. So it’s up to Sheep to solve this dilemma and still have a costume for herself. Bear’s friends help her deal with her fear of the dark in “Nightlight.” And in the disc’s final episode, “One Hat Fits All,” Sheep’s magician’s hat is blown away on a blustery day. Every time that one of Sheep’s friends come upon it and fix it, it takes a different shape that perfectly fits their own personalities. This leaves Sheep and her friends to wonder could her hat in fact be…magical?
