The Halloween Show
Cassandra..... Mary Wickes
Marvin, Jr...James Bond III
Television talk show host Paul Thurston does not believe in witches and makes it known during an interview. His snide, mocking tone infuriates Cassandra, the head of a powerful coven.
Cassandra plots revenge, telling fellow witch Minerva that a "hit-witch" will be unleashed upon Paul. Minerva herself faces punishment should she reveal the plan to her young witch niece, Tabitha who works for Thurston. The hit-witch turns out to be an eight-year old girl named Paula, who claims to be Thurston's daughter and promptly moves in, thus ruining a romantic evening for Thurston and his date.
Even though Minerva conveys Thurston's predicament to Tabitha without directly stating the details, Cassandra spitefully puts a hex on the food-loving Minerva's taste buds.
Tabitha tries unsuccessfully to persuade Thurston to retract his unkind statements, then tries to talk Paula into being merciful. But the hit-witch, who reveals that she is really an 85-year-old who has refused to grow up, merely promises more trouble for Thurston.
On Halloween night, Thurston is trick-or-treating in his apartment building with Paula and Marvin, Jr., the son of producer Marvin Decker. The mischievous hit-witch turns Thurston into a werewolf and Junior into an oversized turkey, much to the consternation of the neighbors.
Tabitha traps the trio in an elevator and convinces Paula to release her spells. She then convinces Paula that growing up can fun - especially if there are boys around. Attracted to Junior, Paula decides to give it a try.
Tabitha clashes with a very powerful head witch who has been enraged by Paul Thurston's mockery of witchcraft and has vowed revenge.
