A spooky selection for a haunted Halloween! Mr. Fred Fox discovers the grave of one of his ancestors and embarks on a surprising quest. His adventures shed light not only on the case of the empty grave, but also on celebrations of life in cultures around the world, the beliefs of diverse peoples, and traditions surrounding mortality. Then, a lonely vampire's greatest wish is to play with other children, but will he be accepted despite his differences? Finally, Donald is born with fingers made of chocolate. Will he try to disguise his sweet digits, or remember to be true to himself? Try out new ideas and identities with the characters in these short films! Includes films with narrations by renowned actors Christopher Plummer (Up) and Alan Rickman (Harry Potter).
