Michael Jackson's Halloween

Michael Jackson and Halloween seem to go together more and more these days. First we had the spooky MJ compilation Scream, which collects every even vaguely Halloween-adjacent Jackson song, and now we have a CBS animated special entitled Michael Jackson’s Halloween, as announced by the official CBS Twitter account:

Actors including Jim Parsons, Alan Cumming, Lucy Liu, Christine Baranski, and others are part of Michael Jackson’s Halloween, which will provide a soundtrack made up of Jackson’s biggest hits with animated Halloween visuals – or do I have that backwards? In any case, CBS is obviously hoping that this special becomes a Halloween tradition in the vein of the “Thriller” video – which, let’s face it, this special can’t even hope to match.

Anyway, Michael Jackson’s Halloween will be drawing uncomfortable trick-or-treat associations in the minds of viewers after darkness falls across the land on October 27th, when the special is set to premiere on CBS.
