A curious youngster moves to Salem, where he struggles to fit in before awakening a trio of diabolical witches that were executed in the 17th century.
Sean Murray played the human Thackery Binx. He was dubbed over by Jason Marsden, voice of the cat Binx, for consistency.
Before they go trick or treating, Dani tells Max there is a full moon out. The movie is set in 1993, and the last time Halloween had a full moon was 1974. The next one will be in 2020.
The Walt Disney logo at the start is tinted blue (the one at the end has the usual coloring).
When shown on The Disney Channel in the UK on Hallowe'en night 2005, most of the previous cuts were reinstated, with only a few scenes cut out. When the witches are hanged at the start we don't see their bodies or legs during the scene, we cut straight after Binx's father orders the hanging to shots of the crowd wincing at the sight of the hanging, and then to Binx's father ordering the cat away. The scene in which Billy gets his fingers cut off on the street is also cut out, as is the scene where he cuts his mouth open so he can speak with Max's knife. All other scenes remained intact, including the scenes where Billy loses his head twice. The last time it was shown, the headless scenes were removed and it prompted complaints from viewers who said the film was hard to understand with so many edits. They also complained that the headless scenes were done comically with no references to pain or blood and as the film was only a PG, and made by Disney themselves, so surely it wouldn't upset children who would find the funny side of it. All recent showing of the movie now have the headless scenes put back in.
