Parents Need to Know

Cory Carson series and involves some mild scares and spooky folks the characters encounter while trick-or-treating.

There are some tense moments when the characters are trapped, frightened by things that block their way, or startled by a figure suddenly appearing to say "boo!".

Even so, they're quickly resolved, and the story's emphasis on Cory's positive qualities as a sibling and a friend are what make the biggest impression on viewers.

Is It Any Good?
There's so much to like about Cory and his co-stars, and this eerie Halloween tale will put preschool fans in a festive mood for sure. A Go! Go! Cory Carson Halloween plays up the spook factor with some brief scares and surprises and some supporting characters who seem a little sinister before the truth reveals itself. And if it's adorable Halloween costumes you're looking to see, Cory and crew (and especially little Chrissy) don't disappoint there either.
Cory finds courage in being a leader and in taking care of his friends and little sister. This lively Halloween story offers opportunity for him to do both, and the example he sets is a great one for kids. Parents could point to Cory's willingness to let the lure of candy get him and his traveling partners into some sticky situations as a cautionary tale if desired, but on the whole, this festive holiday special is a sweet treat for Cory's young fans.
