October Kidtoons Feature Spookley The Square Pumpkin Prize Pack Giveaway


"Spookley the Square Pumpkin:  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!"

This month is also National Bullying Prevention Month. This is a cause that I am completely for. If we as parents teach or children right from wrong, I don't think as many kids would be bullied. My parents taught me if I don't have something nice to say don't say it at all, and boy let me tell you if I were to have picked on another children my rear would have paid the price. I try to teach my kids that someone always needs a friend, no matter what they look like, what they wear or what kind of family life they have. I believe that as parents we can make that difference and not only help our own children but to help all the children.

  • One Spookley whirly flashlight

  1. I'm a retired teacher so bullying has happened before in my classroom. I address the issue to the parents of the bully, and let the child's parents know who has been bullied so they are aware of what is happening.

    My son is too young and I truly fear the day when someone picks on him. He's such a pure, bright soul that I hate the thought of him being hurt. As a child, I was pretty lucky and not bullied. I also had an older brother who looked out for me and I imagine that helped a lot. I taught High School English before making a major career change. In that roll, I sadly saw the effects of bullying on some of my students.

  5. I run a daycare out of my home and we deal with bullying alot. When the kids get off of the bus they like to talk about their day at school and sometimes they talk about problems they are having with other kids and right at that time we talk altogether about how we can stop bullying and how we dont become a bully either.

  8. I was bullied in the 3rd grade and still remember it 40 years later. I am happy my kids school has zero tolerance for bullying. Bullying hurts not only the one being bullied but the witnesses as well.

  9. My girls are still very young (2 and 4.5) so we have not experienced bullying. However when I was in highschool, I got picked on relentlessly - I hated high school so much and couldn't wait to go to college where I could find more like-minded people (less cliques).

  10. As a young child I was bullied but I was too withdrawn and fearful to speak up about it.

  12. My son was bullied a couple of months ago by a teenage boy he saw on weekends at the campground. We were good friends with the parents so we broached the subject with them. They turned a blind eye so we told the campground owners. The bully ended up vandalizing the campground so he got kicked out. It's been more peaceful without him harassing my son. Thanks.
