Once Upon a Halloween is a 2005 direct-to-video film in DVD made by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment in the UK. It featured the Evil Queen (from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs) and other various Disney Villains. The film also features clips from various Disney animated films, as well as shorts and songs including, "Sidekicks and Henchmen", the song that was sung by Pat Carroll who provided the voice of Ursula with lyrics written by Marty Panzer and Dan Grady.
On the night before Halloween, the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs plans to conquer Halloween, and asks her cauldron (Voiced by Corey Burton) to show her several villains, to find which one of them gets to help her in her plan. She sees villains such as Peg Leg Pete (as Tiny Tom from Officer Duck), Ursula from The Little Mermaid, Captain Hook from Peter Pan, Yzma from The Emperor's New Groove, Professor Ratigan from The Great Mouse Detective, Alameda Slim from Home on the Range, and Judge Claude Frollo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The cauldron also explains its origins and the Horned King, both from The Black Cauldron, being the Queen's cauldron one of the cauldrons that were owned by the Witches of Morva.
- All of the orginal bridge sequences were produced in CGI rather than traditional animation. The rest of the scenes, on the other hand, focus on the traditional animated films of Walt Disney Feature Animation.
- Although the Spirit of the Magic Mirror appears on the DVD cover, he does not have any appearance in the film. Also Cruella De Vil, unlike the other villains on the cover, who have scenes centered on them, she only appears in small compilation sequences.
- Although the Big Bad Wolf, Anastasia and Drizella do not appear at any point during the film, they do appear in the bonus content sections of the DVD. On the other hand, Alameda Slim does not appear, despite being one of the central villains in the film.
- A game in the DVD allows the player to go into the Evil Queen's Castle searching for 3 villains (Big Bad Wolf, Jafar, and Maleficent), visiting the Magic Mirror room, a unknown area with a useful carpet, some containers and a door (possibly an area unseen in the film), the queen's lab, dungeons, a garden, and a swamp (which is believed to be the haunted forest).
