I MEAN, I REMEMBER IN MY HOUSEHOLD, THIS IS ON EVERY HALLOWEEN NIGHT. >> WHEN YOU SAY IT STARTED OFF SLOW, WHEN IT MIGRATED TO TELEVISION, AND THEY PLAYED IT AT HALLOWEEN WEEK OR THEY PLAYED IT JUST THE NIGHT OF HALLOWEEN, AND THEN THEY PLAYED IT A WEEK OF HALLOWEEN, AND THEN THEY PLAYED THE TWO WEEKS BEFORE, AND SUDDENLY IT WAS A WHOLE FULL MONTH AND SUDDENLY HALLOWEEN BECAME A THING. >> IT'S BEEN 30 YEARS, SO GENERATIONALLY, WHAT'S HAPPENED IS, THIS GENERATION HAS GROWN UP AND HANDED OFF TO THEIR KIDS. >> YOU ARE OUR IDOLS. >> IDOLS? >> WAS THERE HESITATION OVER THOSE 30 YEARS? DID YOU EVER -- DID ANY OF YOU HESITATE TO THINK THIS WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO DO IT AGAIN? >> I NEVER DID, BECAUSE I HAD SUCH A BLAST THE FIRST TIME. >> YEAH. >> I DON'T THINK -- I DON'T THINK I EVER THOUGHT THAT IT WAS SERIOUSLY BEING DISCUSSED. I NEVER GOT THE IMPRESSION THAT IT WAS A CONVERSATION THAT WAS HAPPENING BETWEEN PEOPLE WHO GET TO MAKE THOSE DECISIONS, AND WHEN IT FINALLY BECAME REAL AND OFFICIAL, LIKE THROUGH PROPER CHANNELS, NOT JUST A RUMOR, TO MY KNOWLEDGE, WE ALL SAID YES IMMEDIATELY. >> WHEN I POPPED IN THE TEETH FOR WINIFRED. >> I'VE POPPED IN THOSE TEETH MANY TIMES. >> HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE LOST THE TEETH? >> I'VE NEVER LOST THE TEETH. ♪ I PUT A SPELL ON YOU AND NOW YOU'RE MINE ♪ >> THERE'S SONGS TOO. THERE'S SO MANY, CAST A SPELL ON YOU, WE LOVED THAT. BUT NOW THERE ARE TWO SONGS THAT EVERYBODY'S PROBABLY GOING TO START SINGING THIS TIME AROUND, TOO. >> LET'S HOPE SO. >> YEAH. ♪ WE WERE RUNNING WILD AND SO REVILED, RAISING CANE UNTIL WE GOT EXILED ♪ ♪ BUT TIMES ARE CHANGING, NOW WE'RE ON THE ATTACK, YEAH, THE SPELL IS GOING TO HIT YOU BECAUSE THE WITCHES ARE BACK ♪ >> THE FIRST TIME AROUND, THE WITCHES SEEMED TO BE A LITTLE CREEPIER, MAYBE A LITTLE MEANER. >> TWIST THE BONES AND BEND THE BACK. TRIM HIM OF HIS BABY FAT. >> IS IT THIS TIME THAT THEY'VE MELLOWED A LITTLE BIT? HAVE WINNIE AND HER SISTERS MELLOWED SOME? >> IT'S TIME.

IT'S TAKEN AWAY A LITTLE BIT OF THE LENGTH OF THE RUNS WE DO, AND THE KIND OF TIME WE SPEND UP HIGH IN THE AIR. IT'S MORE LIKE A TASTING MENU INSTEAD OF, LIKE, YOU'RE GETTING A WHOLE THING. >> AN ENTREE. >> YEAH. I'M NOT DOING A LA CARTE ON EVERYTHING. BUT IT'S STILL GREAT. >> INTEND TO LIVE PAST SUNRISE, WE HAVE TO STEAL THEIR SOULS. >> WHOA, WHOA, WAIT, CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS? >> ARE WE ALREADY THINKING ABOUT HOCUS POCUS 3? >> SOME PEOPLE ARE. >> TOO SOON? >> THERE'S NO TOO SOON. .
