Fun Fall Movies from HIT Entertainment and Lionsgate

My kids really enjoy the DVD's from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment with the crew of characters. The recent DVD we got for review was: Trick or Treat Tales. This DVD stars Barney, Thomas & Friends, Bob the Builder, Fireman Sam, Fifi and the Flowertots and Angelina. This DVD will be released on the shelves tomorrow (September 1). The characters in this DVD are great about giving the message of friendship, togetherness, and adventure.
From the back:
The thrills start with Thomas & Friends in a ghostly adventure. Bob The Builder and Spud put on scary faces to protect a giant pumpkin pie from hungry crows. Barney and Fifi learn that there’s more to a costume than just dressing up. Angelina Ballerina sneaks into a costume ball and Fireman Sam saves a furry friend from a chilling experience. Enjoy the season’s sweetest collection of Trick or Treat Tales!
· Thomas & Friends – “Flour Power!”
· Barney & Friends – “Guess Who?”
· Bob the Builder – “Trix’s Pumpkin Pie”
· Fifi and the Flowertots – “Pirate Primrose”
· Angelina Ballerina – “The Costume Ball”
My kids really enjoy this DVD because it is a mini cartoon from each of these fun, loving crew. This DVD is a great selection and they all promote friends doing things together.
There is also a special feature at the end of the DVD called,“Cat Magic” – a bonus episode of Fireman Sam

Barney's Halloween Party is a fun DVD where Barney and his friends are preparing for a Halloween party at the school. Fun filled with songs like: Pop goes the Weasel, Ichy, Aquishy, Gooey, Ooey, and So many Pumpkins. Barney always has positive messages and displays of working together.
From the back:
It's Halloween and Barney and his friends are decorating the gym for an exciting party at the school. From Indian corn to smiling jack-o-lanterns, they gym is aglow with the colors of fall. Meanwhile, BJ™ and Baby Bop™ are putting the final touches on their costumes as they get ready for a fun-filled night of trick-or-treating. Finally, evening arrives, they party beings and the trick-or-treaters set out to search for goodies. Unfortunately, after a full night of trying, BJ comes up just a bit empty-handed. But when he and Baby Bop return to school, they soon find out that their friends have plenty of goodies and surprises waiting for them. Sometimes, the best treats at Halloween are good friends.

Our family loves Shaun the Sheep, and we could NOT wait to see the new DVD: Shaun the Sheep's Little Sheep of Horrors. This DVD is pretty funny! The barnyard tricks and jokes never end with this funny bone tickler. The baby sheep gets in the house, into some red stuff, and needs to be rescued. Shaun and the other sheep are freaked out from a moving glove, and there are many "pranks" performed in this all new, 6 episode, DVD. Here is a list of the 6 spooky stories: Little Sheep of HOrrors, Abracadabra, Things that go Bump, Heavy Metal Shaun, Troublesome Tractor and Sheepwalking. There are two bonus features, too: Sheep-Shearing Game, and Whack-a-Pig game. I highly recommend this DVD for a good family fun night!

These three movies are now available for purchase from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment. All three DVD's have a suggested retail price of $14.98 each.

Is the Shaun the Sheep DVD scary at all for your little ones? We love Shaun the Sheep (and your blog is where I find out about the new ones) -- but we've started to hear from our three-year-old that some movies are "too scary."
