Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series" starring Frankie Jonas ("Jonas" TV series) that may well be the scariest episode ever of the popular, award-winning anthology series.

Scare-a-thons of both "R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series" and Scholastic's popular "Goosebumps" series based on the best-selling books written by R. L.
