It must be a Halloween miracle—the Potter Puppet Pals are back in our lives once more! For the first time in over a year, the Potter Puppet Pals’ YouTube channel has uploaded a new video, and at 13 minutes long, it’s the longest episode on record. The Halloween-themed episode, titled “Harryween”, is the first full-length episode released on the channel in over three years, though several charity videos and shorts have been uploaded since then.
The episode is full of Puppet Pals’ signature humor and hilarious quips from our favorite characters: Harry, Hermione, Ron, Snape, Dumbledore, and Voldemort. The video follows Severus Snape as he retells the frightful tale of a day known as Harryween. Hermione, going full meta by dressing up as a witch, and Ron, decked out as a unicorn, attempt to get Harry into the Halloween spirit…a task that might be a little difficult for obvious reasons.
Dumbledore (dressed as Voldemort), tells Harry that tonight is a night to celebrate him, not the horrors of his past. “Tonight is anniversary of the night you, yes you, Harry Potter, kicked Voldemort’s ass with your pudgy baby leg,” Dumbledore reminds Harry sagely. Of course, Harry is still angsty as ever. “I don’t like Halloween. I don’t like Harryween. I don’t like any ween,” he wails. “Just ween me alone!”
In his anger, Ron ends up in a dangerous situation, and Harry (with Ron and Batman’s help) must save the day from Voldemort’s evil schemes. Do they succeed in defeated the Dark Lord once and for all? Dive in below to find out!
The episode was created by Neil Cicierega, Emmy Cicierega, Ben Cicierega, Alora Lanzillotta, and Max Pacheco.
