ALEX CHADWICK, host: Kids, do not let Mr. Unger's notions about Halloween dampen your own holiday spirit. Certainly he's not going to discourage young Ben Biankini(ph) of Woods Hole, Massachusetts.


I think I will be Wolverine from "X-Men." Oh, yeah, like I might be, like, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, like, dragon arm, painting my arm with scales, like making big claws out of cardboard. And the other arm, a knight's arm, like we could buy this fake armor or something.
