Top 10 Animated Halloween Movies!

I’ve put together Halloween movie lists in previous years, but this year it is devoted to just animated Halloween movies! I decided to focus on Halloween animation after watching a new (to me at least!) film recently. I loved it and thought it was really funny! This list is my personal top ten – not in any actual order though, I’m too fickle for that sort of thing! Which are your favourites? And which animated Halloween movies have I forgotten to include?

Top 10 Animated Halloween Movies - some not-so-scary movies for kids (and fraidy-cat adults!)

Animated Halloween Movies!

I’ve taken the liberty of providing the synopsis of each Halloween movie, which has been provided by IMDB. I love that website! I must use it at least once when watching a film – whether it is to find out what film an actor has been in before, or when I recognise a voice but can’t place the name of the actor; or just for general trivia. What did we do before IMDB?!
