Haunted House, Haunted Mouse


Sour balls! Gumdrops! Chocolate! Mouse is stunned as he watches goblins and skeletons and ghosts collect candy. He wants to go trick-or-treating too, so when the little bitty ghost drops her sack, Mouse scrambles inside. Now he's in for a harrowing Halloween adventure!
