In addition, YouTube has commissioned Spanish dubbed versions of the series, which will be available on the Mr Bean Spanish YouTube channel, and released themed compilation episodes available on ZeeToons YouTube channel.

Produced by Tiger Aspect Kids & Family, part of Banijay Kids & Family, the 15-minute special is available on the Cartoons For Kids YouTube channel and on the YouTube Kids app.

The “Corpse Talk: Halloween Special” takes place in the graveyard studio where host Adam (actor and YouTube star Joe Sugg) is joined by Mary Shelley (Julia Davis), author of Frankenstein; Bram Stoker (Ardal O’Hanlon) author of Dracula; and finally, the discoverer of King Tutankhamun’s tomb, Howard Carter (Tony Gardner). Through Adam’s chat-show banter, we discover how Frankenstein was created on a rainy holiday, Bram Stoker is introduced to gaming and how many underpants Tutankhamun needed in his afterlife. We’ll also find out which is the scariest story and which of the guests…or host…is the most scared!

“Corpse Talk is a great introduction to history, which strikes the perfect balance between comedy, entertainment, and learning. We’ve achieved our goal of the audience learning through laughter, as well as me! I’m really pleased that YouTube has let us have some more fun in the Corpse Talk studio.”
