* ''AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'' contains a surprisingly tragic example in the BackStory of "The Tale of the Frozen Ghost." A little boy caught his neighbor's farmhand hiding the gold from a bank robbery. He ran, but the robber caught him in the woods. The kid managed to get away when the guy ripped off his coat... and subsequently froze to death that night in the woods.
** "The Tale of the Unexpected Visitor" contains a more typical version. Two boys are caught by the MonsterOfTheWeek in giant spider webs. When the third backs into one, he's able to slip out of his jacket, leaving it stuck to the web.
