Collecting candy on Halloween is so far removed from my person, that I only remember waking up with hang-over’s on All Saint’s Day and hardly recall mixing up my carmel candies with my milk duds the weekend of Halloween. I can blame so many cavities on that silly “holiday” that we now measure by Wal-Mart candie sales. In a good economy the Hershey multipacks go like hotcakes, in a bad economy, it’s mostly candy corn.
For some reason the wonderful world of Youtube isn’t cooperating with me and I can’t find the full length “Trick or Treat” episode of Tales From the Darkside.
For the longest time I thought this was a Disney short. If you watch this old promo clip, you’ll see the (dare I say ‘classic’) episode at around :19. Enjoy…your cavities (diabetes) and Halloween. That’ll be my kid dressed like a Mexican pumpkin come this time next year. Watch-out-now!
