Spooky but not too spooky. Gnarly, but not nightmare fuel. It’s a Spooky Season spectacular on DStv’s School Of Laughter.
From making a new BFF out of an ancient mummy in Disney’s Under Wraps, to a haunted castle adventure with Mickey Mouse and sinister kitchen nibbles with Matilda Ramsay, there’s plenty of treats and no tricks in store for kids of all ages.
So turn off the lights, sit around the eerie glow of the TV and let DStv spin you a story.
