And another fairy tale and Halloween crossover for Shrek fans. Yes, I bring you all the news. :) I've never seen any of the Shrek specials--I don't watch enough tv to remember to watch these--but hopefully this one will be fun for the family. Personally, It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is my favorite. I'm so old school.
