Title card

Thriller Night is a 2011 computer-animated short film, containing most of the Shrek cast singing and dancing to a parody of "Thriller" by Michael Jackson.

Dean Edwards and Sean Bishop reprised their roles as DonkeyPrince Charming and King Harold. However, Mike Myers, Antonio Banderas, and Cameron Diaz did not come back as Shrek, Puss in Boots, and Princess Fiona and they were replaced by Michael Gough, Holly Fields, and André Sogliuzzo.

Synopsis

The special starts with Shrek (Michael Gough) bursting out of a movie theatre angrily, followed by everyone else, including Princess Fiona (Holly Fields), Puss in Boots (André Sogliuzzo), and Donkey (Dean Edwards), who are all fine. Fiona checks if Shrek's all right and he replies that he actually wanted to see something scary because it is Halloween. As Shrek walks off, Donkey and Puss try to cheer Shrek up by singing Thriller. They begin to walk through the street (with Shrek annoyed by Donkey singing), and everyone begins to sing along. Puss (who plays the role on Vincent Price) tags behind and points to the graveyard, where many characters are rising from the dead: This includes Prince Charming (Sean Bishop), Rumpelstiltskin (Walt Dohrn) and Fifi (Frank Welker {uncredited}), the Fairy Godmother (Pinky Turzo {whose wand was bent}), Lord Farquaad (Sean Bishop), the Headless Horseman, Captain Hook (Ian McShane), Mongo (Conrad Vernon), King Harold (Sean Bishop {in his frog form}), and the Pied Piper (Jeremy Steig). Everyone surrounds Shrek, Donkey, and Fiona (who prepares to do Karate on the zombies). The Pied Piper then begins playing his flute. Shrek tells Fiona that it's time to go, but when he turns around, she's now a zombie (much to his horror), and Puss and Donkey also become zombies. Everyone starts to dance, and so does Shrek (against his will). Singing eventually ensues, led by Donkey. At the end of the song, Shrek manages to break the Pied Piper's flute, complaining that he is going to be sore in the morning. As he turns around, he sees everyone (zombified) coming towards him to kill him. Donkey then yodels as he and the others close in on Shrek, preparing to eat his brains.

Shrek wakes up screaming and it is shown that he's really in the movie theatre. He asks if it is over. Unfortunately. he is told that he only slept through the previews and he has 3 more hours of children and puppets, much to Shrek's distress and he shouts out, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!".

But right before the short film ends, Puss comes out from the black background laughing evilly (also similar to Vincent Price) and then hisses.
