It’s Halloween candy time on ABBOTT ELEMENTARY, and the children are bouncing off the school walls from sugar highs. This was not intentional from the staff’s perspective, and they are walking the halls trying to find the culprit. 

This episode turned the theme around and made it all about facing your fears, even if they have to do with “ghosts, ghouls, and making new friends.” All it will take is “patting down kids, following the candy trail, and asking Ava (Janelle James) for help. Janine (Quinta Brunson) never looked so good. 

ABBOTT ELEMENTARY showcased a fun, humorous holiday story. It is a show the entire family can watch together, and there aren’t enough of those anymore, especially at Halloween. Sometimes everyone needs to “start over” and keep the janitor close at their side. He is a hoot.

It is available to stream on ABC Television.
