Kidtoons October 2011: Spookley the Square Pumpkin

This month Kidtoon Film’s is proud to present: Spookley the Square Pumpkin

Spookley

In a world where “the only good pumpkins are round pumpkins,” Spookley the Square Pumpkin is often teased by the other pumpkins because of his square shape. Soon, Spookley is befriended by Edgar, Allan and Poe, three hilarious spiders, who convince Spookley that, square or not, he has a right to be the “Pick of the Patch” on Halloween. A square pumpkin the “Pick of the Patch”? Not if mean round pumpkins Big Tom and Little Tom can help it. These two bullies tease and taunt Spookley because of his square roots. Although he is encouraged to continue to become the “Pick of the Patch” by kindly Jack Scarecrow and his bat sidekicks, Boris and Bella, Spookley isn’t sure he has what it takes until a mighty storm threatens to destroy the entire patch. As the storm rolls the round pumpkins across  the patch towards a raging river below, Spookley’s square shape helps him save the day.  Spookley realizes “it’s fine to be round while the weather is fair, but there are times it’s better to be a square!”

The film is about being different and learning to accept those differences.  Spookley is square in a world where every other pumpkin is round, and that makes him ashamed.  Through the story, he learns that it is this very uniqueness that enables him to save the day for all other pumpkins.  This story can be used to illustrate many kinds of differences that your kids may see in their own lives: disabilities, race, language or cultural traditions.

  • ~By learning to accept someone who is not like them, the other pumpkins learn that being different is not better or worse, it’s just different.
  • ~Finally, there’s an important lesson here about understanding that actions can cause hurt feelings.  When Big Tom and LIttle Tom tease and embarrass Spookley, it makes him want to quit the Jack-A-Lympics.  Luckily he doesn’t, because it’s Spookley who comes to rescue when the storm hits.  The pumpkins come to understand Spookley’s unique value, and apologize for their hurtful behavior, which is a great example for your kids.
