I don't remember anything like that and considering I was a HUGE Arthur fan in third grade back in '04, I'd probably would have heard of it.

Likewise, I've never heard anything about this.  I remember coming across what looked to be a special edition of the Arthur's Halloween book one time while strolling through an arts and crafts store, but that's the only unusual Halloween-related item I know of.

I remember when the Arthur forums at the time (namely the Yahoo Group) talked about this, around when the BSB special came out.

The only thing I could find was a blurb on the no-longer-existing Arthur Worldwide (before Marc Brown Studios) website via the Wayback Machine archive...

Link.

I guess it got canned at some point for whatever reason. A shame though, an hour-long Halloween special on the same level as Arthur's Perfect Christmas or It's Only Rock n Roll would have been awesome.

It was probably added to IMDB in anticipation it would be finished. I would point fingers at the mediocre reception the BSB special received in regards to why it may have been cancelled. Arthur's just one of those programs that works best as a TV cartoon, without any feature-length specials.

I suppose you're right.Still,it could have been the special that turned the show around...if you ask me,they should've stuck to specials based on holidays.

Sorry to revive such an old topic, but I figured this was the most appropriate place to write about this...

An "Arthur Halloween special" may actually be a possibility, after all these years. This video ( http://www.azpbs.org/kids/ ) features the PBS Kids programming director briefly mentioning such a special (at 36:15 in the video; the entire conversation in context begins a few minutes before then). We do know that Seasons 20 & 21 will bring 2 specials, one of which is centered around D.W.'s birthday. Maybe the second one is Halloween-related? A word of caution: this was part of a Q&A session; it's possible the director was just spouting out a random show and tied it in with a holiday to allude to some kind of special programming event. At one point in the video, both he and the VP couldn't even think of one of PBS Kids' STEM shows confused, so this is by no means a confirmed announcement of a Arthur Halloween special/movie/event. Just something worth noting! Only time will tell.
