Also, Nickelodeon websites,, Neopets, Shockwave and ParentsConnect will feature new Halloween content and games.

The company will be producing "chill-filled"episodes of "SpongeBob SquarePants," "True Jackson, VP," "The Wonder Pets!," "Glenn Martin, DDS" and other shows that it promises will be spine tinglers for kids from toddler to tween.
