Return of the Children's Television Workshop--of Horror!

Welcome to Week 2 of the Countdown to Halloween! Happy Columbus Day as well, if you're lucky enough to enjoy the holiday.

Today I offer a trip to the scariest place for children 6 and under--the Children Television Workshop of Horror! Actually, it's just spooky but harmless clips from Sesame Street.

First up: although the Count is the most famous spooky Sesame Street character, the show also had more than its share of sketches involving witches. Here are several.

Wanda the Witch, brought to you by the letter W.

In case you didn't catch that, W stands for witch. Just want to reinforce the lesson.

Witches can be quite vain; they're always checking themselves out in mirrors. Especially magic mirrors.

Here, three witches learn a lesson in cooperation.

Witches aren't the only Halloween monsters on Sesame Street. Frankenstein has made a couple of appearances as well, as you can see below.

This post has been brought to you by the letters W and F. Thanks!

Fun stuff! Love the old cartoon, especially the final one. Nothing scary, just spooky 70s fun!
