* BrokenAesop: The moral of the story is that you shouldn't judge a book (or a pumpkin) by its cover. The problem?

* ElephantInTheRoom: While the characters talk about how important pumpkins are on Halloween, they never ''once'' bring up the fact that pumpkins are annually chopped up and gutted for the holiday. [[spoiler: Even weirder, Spookley is seen glowing at the end, implying there's a candle in him, but he's clearly alive and hasn't been cut open.]]
