Morphle: The Halloween Candy Magic Pet seems to have more of a storyline and tone aimed at preschoolers than previous iterations of the series. The animation has stepped up a notch, and the poor behaviors have gone down a notch.

It's encouraging to see multiple parts of the story that point out being honest and trying to do the right thing, such as when Mila and Morphle forgo rescuing the pretty pumpkins to help keep the bandits from falling from the sky. Mila also stops working on decorations to go tell her dad about an accident she's had after accidentally zapping someone into a gummy person. Perhaps that's why the ending seems to fall flat, when after all the hard work they put into trying to make homemade Halloween decorations for the contest, they decide to use magic to pull a last-second win. It seems to take away from the messages of working together and being honest that the show worked so hard to convey throughout the story. Perhaps if the magical pet had turned the whole street into candy-made houses, or if they'd decided winning wasn't that important, it would've landed better.
