    I remember one about Spooky Spats dressed all in green.

    Here we have not songs, but for the “Dia de Muertos”, we write terrific poems named “Calaveritas”

    Ooooh I like the sound of that… would be fun to draw someday! Do remember any more of the lyrics?

    That is so neat! After I saw your post this morning, I read a bit more about the Day of the Dead and the ‘Calaveritas’ poems. Such a special celebration and tradition! Thanks for sharing :)

    So, did you wait a while after you sang the song before you opened the closet door? Just in case some of your friends might have been in there? Or did you think about doing that to some of your friends?

    It was the kind of song that we sang in a large group, all swaying and quietly singing. When we got to the last line we all just yelled “BOO!” In hopes to put a little scare into the audience ;) I was only 6 at the time but remember it so well!

    To add to your question, if we used a real closet door that would have been so much fun… and even more frightening if a ghost popped out!

    I never learned that one, but if you want spookies, try watching the movie “13 Ghosts”. Martin Milner is in it before starring in “Route 66” & “Adam 12”.

    Thanks, that sounds like a fun one! O___O Sometimes I have a hard time watching the newer scary movies but I really love the older ones!

    You’re correct. The vintage offerings, especially film noir are superior to present day shlock fests.

    Well said! I do enjoy some newer movies too but I’m an Alfred Hitchcock film fan at the core ;)

    Alas, I don’t remember it fully.
    Spooky Spats, dressed all in green
    something something , Halloween
    Then some night birds called out “who”
    (Something like) “He got so scared that he turned blue”
    It was a lame song from kindergarten.

    Isn’t it funny how the memories of childhood songs linger but the details kind of fade?!

    Glad you remember some of the lines… it starts to create a neat picture of the character.

    I’m kind of imagining a dressed-up scarecrow or a fancy ghost with the night birds around him!

    Well, nevertheless you’ve inspired me for another inktober drawing :)

    If you want to see the ‘inktober doodles’ I’ve done so far, just click the link to my instagram. Thanks a bunch!!

    Thank you, & well done on your choice of AH! I have trouble choosing my favorite example. A very early, possibly unrecognized entry is “Young & Innocent” (1937). Nova Pilbeam will be 95 on Nov. 15.
