There’s a line in Pulp Fiction where Samuel L. Jackson’s character Jules talks about how he doesn’t get to eat cheeseburgers all that much because “my girlfriend is a vegetarian so that makes me a vegetarian.” Well, that same principal applies to Halloween when it comes to me and my dog Banky. Halloween is by far, my favorite holiday, so of course that makes it Banky’s favorite holiday too.
I would like to think that she rather enjoys it too, since whenever I take her trick-or-treating dressed in costume, the kids all want to pet her and the parents fawn over her. And there’s always that house that offers doggie treats, too!
Well, this year turned out to be a bust as Banky injured her left ACL and we spent the afternoon getting a soft cast put on her leg. By the time we got home, darkness had fallen and curfew restrictions had cleared the streets of trick-or-treaters. That meant that Banky didn’t get a chance to show off her “Jake” hat that she got as part of the new “Adventure Time” DVD compilation “Jake the Dad.” (See gallery above) The DVD collects 16 episodes featuring Jake and Lady Rainicorns’ pups, showing Jake as a “worrywart of a dad in need of a power nap!”
Banky had to settle for watching Dad eat all the Halloween candy that he never got to give away, along with episodes of “Regular Show”, from the “Fright Pack” compilation. The 14 episodes also include a “Villains Gallery” in addition to a whole bunch of spooky fun!
Both DVD collections are available from Cartoon Network and will make a welcome addition to your family home video collection! Find them on the Cartoon Network Store and Amazon.com!
Thanks to Cartoon Network for helping Banky get over missing out on Trick or Treating!
