Pumpkin PATCH and the Boo Brothers – Singing Pumpkin Animations

I won a Free singing pumpkin animation today on Facebook! I chose “Dead Man’s Party” to add to the other 8 animations that we have for our Pumpkin PATCH and the Boo Brothers singing pumpkin concert.

Since the Halloween of 2013 we have included these singing pumpkins in our graveyard haunt. I often get asked if I animated them. I am not the animator, but John Nielson who manages the Halloween Fun and Christmas Magic Facebook page IS the talented animator behind the Disneyesque Singing Pumpkins that I use. He also has Singing Snowman animations and animations that you can project onto a wall, your garage door, or other flat surfaces. Check out his website and his Facebook page to find out how you can add your own singing pumpkin concert to your Halloween haunt.

Halloween 2014

Our Halloween Haunt for 2014 had to be the bare minimum since we were selling our old house and building a new one. I set up the Singing Pumpkins as if they were having a concert.

“In Concert Tonight Only! Pumpkin PATCH and the Boo Brothers.”

The playlist of songs were This Is Halloween, Blue Moon, Ghostbusters, Grim Grinning Ghosts, Thriller, and Yo Ho, Yo Ho (A Pirates Life For Me). The entire “concert” was over 20 minutes long.

Here is a video of our 2013 haunt.

New props for 2013

I made my wife’s Ford Flex look like a hearse with cardboard cut-out landau bars wrapped in HVAC tape. I made a cardboard casket out of a neighbor’s baby crib box to put in the back of the “hearse.” I used an inexpensive MP3 player and speakers with a voice yelling, “I’m not dead yet. Let me out!” The ghoul driver was an animated prop I made at a previous Rocky Mountain Haunters Gathering with two deer motors moving the head up and down and side to side.

The Singing Pumpkins were a huge hit. You can purchase your own animations at TheSingingPumpkin.com.
