Go To

The kids' first Halloween in Big City is threatened when a blood moon turns all the farm animals into zombies.

Blood Moon

  • Closed Circle: Crazed animals surround the Greens, along with Remy, his bodyguard Vasquez, and Gloria, in the house. It becomes a Trapped with Monster Plot when the animals find a way in; they escape to the apartment building next door, but the animals follow them there. It turns out Bill engineered the whole thing by leaving the barn door open because he wanted to spend Halloween together with the kids, but it got out of hand.

  • Coordinated Clothes: Both Remy and Vasquez dress as hot dogs for Halloween. Remy accuses Vasquez of stealing his costume, but it turns out Vasquez always goes as a hot dog; Remy just happened to dress as one this year.

  • The Man in the Moon: The episode ends with a "Pan Up to the Sky" Ending to a close-up of the moon... which suddenly turns around to reveal Cricket's face yelling "Happy Halloween!" at the audience.
