It's Halloween and Jack and his ghouly family and friends have put together a haunted house. As the rhyme goes along, we meet a ghost, a witch, a mummy, a fairy, a monster and more. At the end of the rhyme, we see that all of the characters are actually just friends and family dressed up in costumes.
