Synopsis by Hal Erickson

This half-hour cartoon special manages to mix entertainment and education into an enjoyably balanced blend. It all begins when typical American youngsters Tad and Terry joins the magicial Sir Scrabble on a visit to the pumpkin patch, which turns out to be the first leg of their journey to the land of Nonsense. Here the kids find that all the Scrabble People are unhappy because learning has been forbidden. Using their own schoolroom knowhow, Tad and Terry set about to enlighten the Scrabbles--and to transform Nonsense into Makesense. First syndicated in the US on October 31, 1985, A Pumpkin Full of Nonsense was released to home video in 1987.
