Top 10 Halloween Cartoon Movies for Families in 2019
Halloween Cartoon Movies – Are you interested in Halloween cartoon movies? Here is a list of top 10 fun-filled Halloween cartoon movies for kids and families:
Most of us find this film difficult to forget, especially those of us who saw it as kids.
We’ll preface this recommendation by saying this movie definitely frightens little kids.
Still, your older kids, tweens and teens will find it an instant classic and you’ll love the chance to see it through their eyes.
Brief summary: When a greedy developer builds on sacred Native American burial grounds, the new neighborhood—including one very special little girl—endures some unwanted surprises.
2. The Nightmare before Christmas
What to do when you are the Pumpkin King but completely over Halloween?
While most folks don’t have this challenge, Jack Skellington definitely finds the grass greener on the other side.
After stumbling into Christmas Town, he’s inspired to show the world its best Christmas ever—even if it means capturing Santa himself.
While his (mostly?) well-intentioned plan is backed with ultimate passion, it turns out that the residents of Halloween Town can’t exactly master the art of creating toys the average kids would like (hint evil wooden ducks and carnivorous wreaths).
While the film is undoubtedly a little scary for younger kids, it is chock full of over-the-top Halloween-themed songs your older set will love to sing for hours on end.
Three spirit-obsessed scientists are preserved from their jobs at NYU, but they don’t let that get them down; instead, they put their talents to good use.
Using their passion for the occult as a driving force, they begin a ghost-extermination company to help New Yorkers tackle some very real ghost troubles.
Their work does not come without its skeptics, though…one even wrongly jails them for fraud! Ultimately the unlikely team aids to save the city from an ancient god.
Be warned: It’s another film that is not quite rated for the current day, and Ghostbusters is probably only appropriate for teens and older.
4. Hocus Focus
What makes a better Halloween movie than three wicked witches?
Head to the 1600s, where Sanderson sisters, (Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy) cast a spell that killed a little girl and changed her brother into an immortal black cat.
Then, fast forward to the‘90s and meet Max Dennison, who just moved from Los Angeles to Salem, Massachusetts with his parents and his younger sister.
He’ll do anything to excite his cute neighbor, Allison, who just so happens to have access to the old Sanderson House.
He even lights the Black Flame Candle, which as legend has it, will fetch back the Sanderson sisters—and does! But hey, who really believes in all that hocus pocus, anyway?
Nothing shares the creepy, crawly ’90s YA horror stories of R.L. Stine, so when we heard about a live-action movie fixed on the sequences, we were a little iffy.
Amazingly, this Goosebumps film was well-done: Jack Black leads the charge with a kooky story and plenty of laughs.
In the film, tween Zach Cooper has a huge crush on his neighbor Hannah, but he can’t quite figure out Hannah’s super overprotective Dad.
As it turns out, Hannah’s Dad is really the real R.L. Stine, and he has some pretty huge secrets to hide. Can the unlikely crew protect the town from certain disaster? Rated PG (really 9 and up).
6. Harry Potter
Literature’s greatest boy wizard is changed into one of the movie’s most charismatic under-12 heroes (a tip of the pointy hat to Daniel Radcliffe) as J.K. Rowling’s world of muggles, monsters, and mystical goings-on at Hogwarts is conveyed to life on screen.
Things will get extremely dark by the time this eight-film series ends, but the kid-friendly adaptation of book one truly makes viewers of all ages believe in magic.
Young Adam and Barbara (Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis) are certainly dead, and a new family is definitely moving into their home! What to do?
Cue Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton), in all his putrescence, is known for expelling unwanted houseguests (and solving other difficulties, too).
Together, the crew (with the assistance of living goth child Lydia) work to expel her unbearable parents and reclaim the home for good.
Marnie Piper (played by Kimberly J. Brown) is toughing it out in a household that can’t stand Halloween, but little does she know she’ll soon be living out every tween’s dream: She’s truly a witch and has magical powers.
After overhearing a discussion between her mother and grandmother, Marnie sets off to see for herself if Halloweentown is real—and boy is it ever!
It’s the truth, and Marnie (alongside her brother and little sister) faces more trouble than she bargained for. Rated TV-G (really 6 and up). Rated TV-G (really 6 and up)
9. Addams Family Values
Nothing compares to the creepy, crawly ’90s YA scary stories of R.L. Stine, so when we heard about a live-action movie centered on the series, we were a little iffy.
Amazingly, this Goosebumps film was well-done: Jack Black leads the charge with a kooky story and plenty of laughs. In the film, tween Zach Cooper has a huge crush on his neighbor Hannah, but he can’t quite figure out Hannah’s super overprotective Dad.
As it turns out, Hannah’s Dad is truly the real R.L. Stine, and he has some pretty huge secrets to hide. Can the unlikely crew protect the town from certain disaster?
10. Monster House
One house on the street is not like the others, and every teenager DJ knows it.
Unluckily, it’s harder than expected for him to persuade the police and his babysitter that their neighbor’s home is really a living, breathing monster.
DJ and his friends must embark on a wild adventure in hopes of saving the people the house has eaten (and ideally destroying it afterward).
Anxiety-prone kids should pass on this one, but young horror lovers will dig this film for its relatable characters and heartwarming ending.
