Kidtoons is proud to present: Spookley the Square Pumpkin. October is National Bullying Prevention Month and Spookley the Square Pumpkin has been named the official Spokes-Pumpkin through a partnership with PACER Center. PACER, a national organization based in Minneapolis, Minn., works to expand opportunities and enhance the quality of life of all children and young adults, including those with any disability, and their families, based on the concept of parents helping parents . "The culture of bullying won’t end until people across the country take action and show children and teens that they care," says Julie Hertzog, director of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, which sponsors the month. "We love the way Spookley touches the heart and the mind with his message of tolerance and acceptance."
Spookley the Square Pumpkin:
In a world where "the only good pumpkins are round pumpkins," Spookley the Square Pumpkin is often teased by the other pumpkins because of his square shape. Soon, Spookley is befriended by Edgar, Allan and Poe, three hilarious spiders, who convince Spookley that, square or not, he has a right to be the "Pick of the Patch" on Halloween. A square pumpkin the "Pick of the Patch"? Not if mean round pumpkins Big Tom and Little Tom can help it. These two bullies tease and taunt Spookley because of his square roots. Although he is encouraged to continue to become the "Pick of the Patch" by kindly Jack Scarecrow and his bat sidekicks, Boris and Bella, Spookley isn’t sure he has what it takes until a mighty storm threatens to destroy the entire patch. As the storm rolls the round pumpkins across the patch towards a raging river below, Spookley’s square shape helps him save the day. Spookley realizes "it’s fine to be round while the weather is fair, but there are times it’s better to be a square!"
