Gordon (1998)

1998 - Honey, I Shrunk the Kids: The TV Show: "Honey, Let's Trick or Treat" - Halloween episodes of sitcoms are always fun. All the requisite ingredients are here: kids trick-or-treating and attending costume parties, adults dressed up and handing out candy, extreme seasonal decoration of the town, and spooky goings on. Nice to see Michael Berryman working outside of the 1970s. I have no idea why Disney refused to re-run this episode. It's not something that I would think would bother young children; even Berryman's hook-arm character is pretty benign. Consequently, this episode is a pain in the butt to locate these days. Stuart Gordon's good at directing children's horror stories. I think he should do more of it.
