The Costume Quest cartoon is full of the power of candy-fueled imagination

The series will air on Amazon Prime next month

Petrana Radulovic is an entertainment reporter specializing in animation, fandom culture, theme parks, Disney, and young adult fantasy franchises.

Frederator Studios’ Costume Quest animated series will finally air on Amazon Prime starting March 8, nearly four years after the cartoon was announced. A debut trailer introduces us to the kid heroes, inspired by the cast of the original Double Fine Productions games.

The little town of Auburn Hollow has been plagued by monsters for the past 10 years. It’s up to four trick-or-treaters — Wren, Reynold, Everett, and Lucy — to use their imaginations to unlock the power of costumes and defeat the nougat-powered monsters on Halloween.

Double Fine Productions’ Costume Quest series of adventure RPG games, which follow a similar plotline, kicked off in 2010, followed by a 2014 sequel. Meanwhile, the Costume Quest animated show has been in the works from Frederator since 2015.

Frederator is also responsible for Adventure Time and The Fairly OddParents, as well as the popular webseries Bee and Puppycat and Bravest Warriors, via Frederator Digital’s YouTube channel Cartoon Hangover and VRV. This is not the studio’s first animated work based on a video game; Frederator also produces Netflix’s Castlevania.
