Halloween Cartoon Idea List

Every year when I sit down to write my Halloween cartoons (usually around June) I create a list of Halloween stuff to help generate ideas. And every year I think "I should keep this so I don’t have to do it again next year!" And then I never do.

But, this year I’m putting it all down here in this post. Partially for my own reference, partially to give you an idea how my head works, and partially to see if there’s anything I missed.

OK here goes:

Halloween –

  • Pumpkins – jack o’ lanterns, seeds, carving, knives
  • Costumes – masks, pirates, hoboes, superheroes
  • Trick or treat – candy, apples, x-ray, bags
  • Witches – brooms, cauldrons, spells
  • Frankenstein – bride, bolts, bodies, scientists, fire, angry mob
  • Vampires – blood, bats, fangs, coffins, mirrors
  • Werewolves – moon, howling
  • Mummy – wrappings, tombs, arms in front
  • Zombies – brains, decay
  • Ghosts – sheets, Casper
  • Skeletons – bones, medical
  • Devil – horns, pitchfork, tail, hell, fire
  • Haunted Houses
  • Spiders – webs
  • Graves – tombstones
  • Scary movies
  • Bobbing for apples

Lemme know if I missed anything…
