Jack Stauber’s OPAL is a new animated special by creator Jack Stauber (SHOP: A Pop Opera, Now and Then).

The quarter-hour special is executive produced by Dave Hughes (Off the Air, Adult Swim Smalls), Matt Harrigan, and Keith Crofford, and produced by Williams Street Productions.

Smalls-O-Ween are bite-sized shorts for your Halloween haul of previously released shorts that match the evening’s genre.
