that was absolutely hillarious! 12 1/6 out of 5 poisoned halloween candies rog, where do you fid all these funny old saftey videos?

Doctor_Who Oct 2nd, 2008 07:18 AM

Nice. I can almost imagine this one intentionally being a comedy sketch.

"Mommy, I want to be a witch!"

"Alright dear, but no broom, it's too long and pointy. And that costume is too dark, wear a white one instead. And that mask will have to go. And that hat is too pointy. and that dress is too long. And you'll need some reflective tape. And a helmet. And we'd better wrap you in bubble wrap so that you won't get hurt. And some of that makeup is bad for your skin. And you can't eat any candy, because it'll all be poisoned. and you can't actually go out because some of the neighbors might be child molesters. Isn't Halloween fun?"

Wyldflame Oct 2nd, 2008 07:39 AM

Five shades of quality sir.

When I think of 70s films, I think of either porn or horror. This is definitely not porn, so this must be the best potential 70s horror film ever. There are so many possibilities. Like when the girl is trying on the mask and the mother is looking at her, there should totally be a killer walking through the next room. Or when the door opens the costumed kids should attack and devour the surprised resident.

Cruxader Oct 2nd, 2008 10:51 AM

My initial thought on that "Witch Costume" was more like KKK...

darkvare Oct 2nd, 2008 10:51 AM

why is the black kid wanting to be white and the black girl painting herself to look like a hooker

McFly Oct 2nd, 2008 11:38 AM

Is it me, or when the witch takes a spill in the beginning does she have tons of prescription drugs fly out. I would probably have to be heavily medicated too if my mother tried to dress me up in a Klan outfit with reflective tape. Also, if I would have gotten fruit instead of candy on Halloween, there would be hell to pay.

rizzo Oct 2nd, 2008 12:51 PM

Holy crap there's a costume I hadn't thought of before...Burt Reynolds! I'm gonna be The Bandit this year when I give kids candy. I'm off to grow lots of chest hair!

KrytenSyxx Oct 2nd, 2008 01:00 PM

Interesting. The white witch gettup looks more like a Klan outfit.

Gourry Oct 2nd, 2008 01:09 PM

So the kid goes trick-or-treating on Halloween and fails. By the time the mom has whipped up a whole new costume, it's like November 14th. Thanks mom!

Plus, I like how the film's advisor is a cop in New Jersey, while the kid's bag clearly shows that she's in Ohio. Even other states know to stay away from Ohio on Halloween!

Holy crap, I totally remember watching this in Elementary school around Halloween in the late 80s/early 90s. Which just goes to show you how rarely my school ever updated their educational films. Watching it brought back a lot of memories....like how that "don't wear a mask on halloween, paint your face" totally messed up my Cookie Monster costume the first year we were forced to watch it.

seesawbooy Oct 2nd, 2008 01:40 PM

The Kid at 5:06 (pt 2) is probably the scariest kid I've seen in a long time

BurnPianoBurn Oct 2nd, 2008 02:07 PM


blacksamster Oct 2nd, 2008 03:21 PM

I really like the idea of parents putting their address on your candy bag.... hey, if the kid dies at least somebody will return the bag, and Mom and Dad can gorge on candy in their grief.

TGossard Oct 2nd, 2008 03:55 PM

This was not the first time the white witch ran the streets...

SPINAL Oct 2nd, 2008 04:20 PM

HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIP #666 Never, ever, EVER, wear a mask made by Silver Shamrock.

s0n1c m0nk3y Oct 2nd, 2008 05:23 PM

RoG, you forgot to add that the girls mother was writing the address on the bag with her left hand. That's a true witch's mother if I ever saw one.

HeroliciousDeBlanc Oct 2nd, 2008 05:27 PM

What a bunch of fuckin Halloween Nazis

Mystik Tomato Oct 2nd, 2008 08:33 PM


Now I know what to do on Halloween! Nothing!

stoffhimel Oct 2nd, 2008 09:30 PM

pretty good quality for a public service video surviving since the 70s. whats next, benny and the roids?

Ferrit Oct 2nd, 2008 10:27 PM

...and what exactly is spilling all over the street after little unsafe witch girl in black ensemble gets hit by the car...or trips...or whatever it is she's doing?

It kinda sorta almost looks like crack

Julio Oct 2nd, 2008 10:57 PM

That cat getting in the middle is epic. As for the other cat... I'm not sure all those years of training, secluded in the basement, have helped me in achieving such a creepy status.

Dungeonbrownies Oct 2nd, 2008 11:32 PM

the world is crazy, thats why its far better once youre older and can go somewhere like Monster Massive or have good enough friends to host a halloween party.

theMIZER Oct 2nd, 2008 11:36 PM

I just happened to be listening to the song "Ghosts 1" by Nine Inch Nails, and it synchs up perfectly with part one of this video. Happenstance? I dont think so!

Simon Love Oct 3rd, 2008 02:19 AM

Am I the only one hallucinating on that red clown hopping around at the very end of the video?

I would also like to extend my deepest sympathies for the princess', as she probably has issues now because of this.

Furry_Fan Oct 3rd, 2008 04:19 AM

My favorite tip was putting your full name and address on your bag.. because you know that creepy pedophile stalking your kids needs to know your son or daughters full name and where he/she live.

Nick Oct 3rd, 2008 04:57 AM

Wow, that mom looks like an asshole.

Is it me, or that woman playing as the little princess' mom looks a lot like Sarah Clarke?

nilus Oct 3rd, 2008 05:14 PM

Is it me or was the KKK girls joke

"What do ghosts eat for breakfeast"
"Ghost testes" WTF!!

Great video. That reminds me I need to go buy some razor blades and candy bars for Halloween this year, need to teach those damns kids to stay off my lawn and stop ringing my doorbell!

Tanuki Oct 3rd, 2008 07:14 PM

I can't even remember a year where I DIDN'T wear a black costume...
this year I'm being the BLU Sniper from TF2 for both a halloween party on campus and for Anime USA. I even got a bloody machete to frighten small children. =D

Darkfloyd Oct 4th, 2008 03:06 AM

Hahahahaha!!! Pause it a 1:00 in and see the look on raggity anns face as the football kid takes the last cookie. Priceless.

DavidFullam Oct 4th, 2008 12:10 PM

"two distinguished gentlemen that scoff at the poor and will gladly introduce you to their wild fisticuffs should you insult their honor!"

Seriously, the second kid looks like John L. Sullivan and I fully expected him to say "I can whup any SOB in the house!"

Ah, remembering to saw off your broom handles and swords. Always a tip top Halloween safety reminder!

does that neighbourhood actually have any street lighting apart form that i tihnk iam gonig to grow myself some might fine set of whiskers

Qwertzuiop Oct 4th, 2008 07:35 PM

The KKK took my baby away

ZeldaQueen Oct 4th, 2008 11:42 PM

God, I remember being shown those things in second grade. I never wore plastic masks only because they were stifling (and there were lottsa possiblities with face paint). I recall one year I went out in a costume that was basically a black cat outfit. Oh dear! How did I ever survive?

Bejeebus Oct 5th, 2008 08:07 PM

Parents checking the candy for harmful things is a total lie. It was a scam parents started to get their hands the the best stuff.

"Ahem, little billy, I must check your candy for dangerous stuff... hmm let's see. Ohh these skittles look like they maybe have been opened, could be dangerous. Opp, and here's a snickers bar that feels a bit heavier than normal, maybe has a razor in it. That leaves you with tootsie rolls, smarties, and dum dums"

JMFabianoRPL Oct 5th, 2008 08:45 PM

"Centron" did this? That reminds me of one thing:

Crow T. Robot: A Centron production! Though we got the idea from someone else...cause we're cheating!

0dd1 Oct 6th, 2008 06:11 PM

Hey! Let's not forget about all the used syringes people put in the candies they dish out!! Y'know, because people wishing to give kids herpes without actually molesting them are extremely common!! ^_^

Geminate Oct 6th, 2008 06:46 PM

Oh come on who didn't steel their parents smokes and beer and hitch a ride to the 'rich' neighborhood to Trick or Treat? Who also hasn't peed themselves in terror after being invited into a house, just to be abducted by Satan worshipers for a few hours before finally escaping? What about vandalism? You know you deserve jail-time for all the crap you dished out to those wealthy snobs! Good times!

Jaimas Oct 8th, 2008 02:38 AM

RoG is quite astute, really, in posting this video. It will reduce the casualties from Max playing "Child Bowling" with his Buick by at least 13%.

Capt.Confederacy Oct 8th, 2008 01:27 PM

"Don't stop in the middle of the street for any reason..."

Sorry, Angie, that you tripped on your too-long, pitch-black witch costume and fell in the middle of the street. The narrator said I can't stop for any reason so I guess you're gonna be roadkill.

AllHallowSteve Oct 8th, 2008 08:19 PM

Man what the uber-polite narrator suggests for the witch drove me crazy.
"Let's make your black witch, white... annnnnnd put a giant reflective X on you... annnnnd replace your broom with a crappy cardboard one... annnnnnd get rid of your mask..... annnnd DONE. There. Now you're completely different from what you wanted to be for Halloween."

It's like the poor kid came out dressed like Darth Vader, and by the time they left the house they looked like Jar Jar Binks.


fourhorsementattoo.com Oct 16th, 2008 12:49 AM

Unfreakinbelievable.....we used to watch this movie on a filmstrip projector EVERY year in elementary school before Halloween. Priceless review of a national treasure, keep up the good work.

PolarisSLBM Nov 6th, 2008 01:44 AM

For some reason, the part that always gets me is that the video waits until nearly eight minutes in to bother mentioning the best and most useful Halloween safety tip, to bring your damn parents. But first let's CHOP HALF YOUR SWORD OFF! You'll poke your eye out, kid!

jo8136 Jul 6th, 2009 06:50 PM

that one smiling man looks like Ted Bundy
