Spookley the Square Pumpkin is found in the pumpkin patch by two bats, Bella and Boris. The round pumpkins tease Spookley, which made him sad. At first the other pumpkins make fun of him because Spookley is square. Later, Jack (the scarecrow) allows him to compete in the 'Jack-a-Lympics' contest. Three spiders, who show sympathy for Spookley, decide to help him in the Jack-a-Lympics just so they can help themselves to the prize, a crown made of candy corn. One of the spiders is revealed to have a crush on Bella. Eventually, Spookley shows kindness to the other pumpkins that made fun of him by saving their lives on the farm during a terrible storm, since he's immune to the storm's strong conditions. At the end, it shows the farmer finding Spookley and carrying him to his house where he places Spookley on the porch lit up with a candle for all to see. The other pumpkins begin to glow as well.
