Bruno's Boogie Nights (also known in Spanish as Bruno y los Bananamigos: La historia de terror meaning "Bruno's Horror Stories") is a 3D Mexican/Japanese flash animated television film based on "The Little Adventures of Bruno" and the original series "Bruno and the Banana Bunch". The film serves as the sequel for the first film, Bruno Gets on Live. This special was partially produced in Mexico by Anima Estudios but Genndy Tartakovsky (creator of Samurai Jack), Craig McCracken (creator of Powerpuff Girls) and Rob Renzetti (creator of Teenage Robot) animated the project and directed the film, making the animation a homage to 1960s Halloween specials and classic Tex Avery shorts. Although their mouth movements are drawn for the Spanish lip actions, the English translation was accurate. The short features several differences such as Janet's age, the songs sung and the location.

Unlike the movie, the special will air in The Hub later in mid-November 2012, following as a four episode pilot for a brand new series. Also unlike the original movie, music videos (which have been removed since the show's fifth season) are now granted back to the show. Also unlike the movie, the Aquabats, John Cena and Adam West return to play their respective characters. Also, some of the footage from Horror Stories (based on the Spanish title "La historia de terror") were used for the show.


Bruno goes trick-or-treating on his first Halloween night ever, but he encounteres in a pseudo-Oriental land known as "Sayanora" where it's being hosted by Shogun Kentozuno. But unfortunatley, an evil Boogeyman named Razznik uses an army of evil spirits to turn the citizens into Boogeycreatures causing him to take over the world. The only way to stop him is to find the legendary Jaguar Jam which is located in Pennsylvania but goes to Transylvania by mistake where he encounters Count Dracula, his daughter, The Wolfman, Frankenstein and other creatures.

  • This special will air on The Hub in mid-November 2012 as a four-episode pilot for a brand new series.
  • The majority of the cast from Tartakovski's previous works, Hotel Transylvania, reprise their roles from the movie, although their acting was tone down a bit so their won't be any copyright issues with Sony Pictures Animation. This is especially as Genndy Tartakovski, Craig McCracken and Rob Renzetti working on the show.
  • This is the only episode where American animations animated the series in a Mexican animated studio located in Mexico.
  • The special is based on the spin-off of the original Bruno series but none of the characters from the spin-off make an appearance in the film.
  • There were several changes made to the film. For instance, Bruno is shown with a green face throughout the series (although it could be for Halloween, although the archived footage was edited as well). Also, Janet was portrayed as a popular shallow teenager with a bad habit and lack of freedom. In this special, she is portrayed as a young 3-year old with the same hair style and face but wears a purple dress, sucks on a pink pacifier and keeps on many pacifier sucking noises when she appears, homaging Maggie Simpson. Also, Jhack Lemon lacks the glasses he wears in the show. Ami does not wear her trademark sailor fuku uniform, but insteads wear flashdancing outfits. Also, Postman Pat has a smaller mustache and is much more skinnier than he was in the original special. The characters also have large, beady eyes and have long shoes, homaging Genndy's old cartoon works. Some of the characters don't even speak much in Sayanora, being a homage to Genndy's previous show, Samurai Jack that does the same style.
