Disney's DTV Monster Hits

I posted some of these links a couple of years ago but they all got taken down; lucky for me (and maybe you? Were you a kid in 1987?), somebody posted all of Disney's DTV Monster Hits on YouTube in 5 chunks:
(Huey, Dewey, and Louie Trick or Treating; Bad Moon Rising; Monster Mash)
(Somebody's Watching Me; The Great Mouse Detective [which had recently come out when this aired]; The Headless Horseman; Evil Queen Transformation sequence from Snow White)
(Evil Woman; Donald Duck's Friday the 13th; Superstition; Snow White's would-be assassin; You Better Run; Sorcerer Mickey)
(That Old Black Magic; Dreamtime; Heffalumps and Woozles; Sweet Dreams)
This is, like, my 10-year-old self in a nutshell. We taped it off TV and my sister and I watched it over and over and over, regardless of it being Halloween or not. The framing device is cheesy as heck, but the editing is really well done and I still get chills watching it. I consider myself a pretty huge Disney nerd, but as Dave and I have been going back and watching a ton of the original cartoons lately, I find myself remembering the DTV versions better than the real things, and sometimes more fondly. I am a product of the 80s, no doubt.
Anyway, THIS is Halloween to me.
