Like Children.

This Guy Needs

To Get Out More.

Halloween--Allhallows Eve.

It's The Yearly Festival

Of The Witches.

They Cast Their Spells

And Celebrate

Their Dark Doings

At A Gathering.

Since The Time

Of The Druids And Celts,

It Has Been So.

They Summon Ghosts

And Goblins

To Do Their Bidding,

And The Dead Have Been Known

To Rise From Their Graves.

She'll Be At

The Gathering, I Bet.

What's A Gathering?

It's A Get-Together,

It's Kind Of

Like Bullwinkle.

No, Bullwinkle's

Kind Of A Moose.

Ilk Is Like Friends.

But Witches Are Just


I Didn't Think

They Really Existed.

The Question Is Not

Whether You Think

Witches Exist

But Whether The Witches

Think That You Exist.

Are You Saying

Witches Are Real?

Oh, Yeah.

There Are Good Witches

And Bad Witches.

A Bad Witch Lived In

That House 200 Years Ago,

And A Bad One

Lives There Now.

Sit Down.

Over There.

I Knew That If I'd Called,

You Wouldn't Have

Wanted Us To Come.

You're Right.

Why Did You?

Well, It's Been Seven Years

Since I've Actually

Seen You,

Ever Since

Aunt Sophia Left.

Upsetting When She Left.

Upsetting? Ha Ha Ha!

I Say!
