The Narration was written in the style of Dr. Seuss by my Girlfriend on my request after I'd done some animation for Daveyboyz "Zombies in Leather Jackets" music video... I really wanted to make a Halloween animation and it turned into this. I really like Halloween Artwork and how its mostly black silhouettes with an orange background so I adopted that visual style for the piece. The animation is very minimal and basic, as with the sound, as I want to keep it in the style of a Children's animated storybook.

Extra Special thanks to Eddie Bowley (Eddache/Eddegg) for his Narration. Fantastic job and it really fits the piece.

Hope you all enjoy.

Got my girlfriend to thank for the story. It's actually fantastic. I'm merely just the animator on this project. Thanks for the kind words. :)


That should be in a book or something. Awesommmee!

My Love for Jack O'Lantern

Never thought I would know
someone who could make such a thing.
Congratulation Dave
About this I could sing

Your talent i shown
dispite the simplistic style
I say this honestly
Without any guile

A fantastic Idea
unlike this here song
yours is much better
mine aint even long.

I shall stop now
before I embaress myself
and place this review where it belongs
on the rubbish shelf.

Dispite good ambition
The warning bells chime
Not sure why i started
I know i cant rhyme

Now I must return
and got back to my lab
again congratulations
Very good job Lad.

Zictor responds:

Haha thanks a lot man... these rhyming reviews seem to be catching on fast! Haha. Stay tuned... there's more to come! :D

The Best Halloween Event Animation i ever seen

I kinda liked it and the voice of the narrator was splendid!


This is a great job, I really declare
That the transforming pumpkin is quite a big scare.
Your animation is such a delight
I just wish I had seen this on Halloween night.
