The Haunted Hathaways
Michelle Hathaway and her two daughters, Taylor and Frankie, move to New Orleans and discover that their new house is already occupied by a dad and his sons… who happen to be ghosts.
As the newest member of the gymnastics team, Taylor is responsible for hosting a team sleepover. Unfortunately Frankie and Louie team up and try to scare Taylor and her friends out of the house.
Taylor finds herself in a pickle when Michelle forbids the use of ghost shortcuts right after Taylor tells her teammates that (secretly with Miles' help) she can win the cash prize at the science fair and get them new uniforms.
An argument between Ray and Michelle leads them to switch roles and attempt to parent the other person's children. Lo and behold, Michelle is unable to wrangle the boys and Ray is thrown by the intricacies of girl social antics.
Frankie is not the best player on her school volleyball team, so Ray gives Frankie a one-time "boost," but when Frankie is left to rely on Louie's erratic abilities, she must find the inner confidence to step up on her own.
When Michelle leaves Miles to babysit an ever-scheming Louie and Frankie duo, they think they've pulled the ultimate prank, but Miles and Michelle get the last laugh.

Nothing specifically educational, but the show includes positive messages about overcoming differences, self-esteem, and family unity.
The show celebrates nontraditional family structures as illustrated by two devoted single parents and their respective broods. It also explores themes like compromise, fitting in with peers, and embracing change, all with messages that reflect self-awareness and tolerance. Though the cast includes white and African-American characters, racial differences are never an issue in the stories.
Positive Role Models
Both Michelle and Ray are great parents who set positive examples for their kids to follow. Though their situation isn't ideal, they make it work for everyone's sake and expect the same from their kids. There's often some playful rivalry between siblings and among the four kids, but it's always light-hearted and never does any real damage.
Violence & Scariness
Physical comedy is funnier than it is worrisome. There are some surprises at the hands of the ghosts, who pop in and out of scenes and can change their appearances and rearrange their body parts, but it's not meant to be scary.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Haunted Hathaways is an entertaining sitcom that boasts positive, worry-free family entertainment. The story is fresh, the characters are delightful, and the positive messages it sends about families and relationships are worthwhile for viewers of any age. Although three of the main characters are ghosts, they're funnier than they are scary, so even young kids can watch without worry. There are two examples of exemplary single parents, and it's through their influence that the kids learn to compromise for the benefit of the group. This likable series is a fun spin on the traditional family sitcom.

Wait. How is this TV-G?
Best show ever, what's the story.
Michelle Hathaway (Ginifer King) and her daughters, Taylor (Amber Montana) and Frankie (Breanna Yde), aren't sure what to expect when they relocate to New Orleans following Michelle's divorce, but nothing can prepare them for the surprise awaiting them in their new home, where they're met by a family of ghosts. Ray Preston (Chico Benymon) and his sons, Miles (Curtis Harris) and Louie (Benjamin Flores Jr.) have haunted the house for years, and they've never met a resident they couldn't scare away, but the Hathaways put up a fight and refuse to give in. Eventually the two sides agree to a truce and vow to share the house, but that doesn't stop the hijinks as these two families learn to live alongside each other.
Is It Any Good?
THE HAUNTED HATHAWAYS is a charming sitcom that touches on issues many families can relate to, like sibling rivalry, coping with unexpected change, and being open to new ideas. The supernatural aspect notwithstanding, this could be the story of any family, whether single- or two-parent, large or small, blended or not. The characters' interplay yields plenty of laughs -- thanks to a talented cast and comical set-ups that play on the ghosts' special tricks -- but there are just as many heartwarming moments that extol positive family relationships.
But perhaps the best attributes of The Haunted Hathaways exist in what's missing from the show. There's no strong language, no suggestive dialogue, and (even with ghosts in the mix), no real scares. Despite the obvious racial and gender divide among the characters, these differences don't come into play, so stereotypes are nonexistent. What's more, as the characters evolve from cautiously tolerating each other to building real relationships that transcend their differences, they rewrite the concept of what defines and unites a family.

Kids: How do the characters relate to each other beyond their obvious differences? What unique traits do they come to like in each other? How are our lives enriched by being around people who are different from us?

The Haunted Hathaways began airing on Nickelodeon in 2013, and ran until 2015. The show followed the Hathaway family, which consisted of two single-parent households that became linked after moving into the same house in New Orleans. Michelle Hathaway, played by Gina King, is a widow with two daughters, Taylor and Frankie, played by Amber Montana and Breanna Yde, respectively. Ray Preston, played by Benjamin Flores Jr., is a single father with a son named Miles, played by Curtis Harris.
The show is essentially a sitcom that merges family dynamics with paranormal elements. The Hathaways move into an old house that they soon discover is also home to a ghost family that has been living there for over 100 years. The ghost family consists of a father, a mother, and a daughter, who died over a century ago. The father, named Ray, is played by Chico Benymon, and the mother, named Louie, is played by comic actress, Missi Pyle. The daughter, named Meadow, is played by Amber Frank.
The main plot of the show revolves around how the two families try to coexist and adapt to their new living situation while dealing with the paranormal activity that surrounds them. The Hathaway family members all have unique personalities that clash with the ghost family members. For instance, Michelle is a strict disciplinary mother who owns a bakery, while Ray is easy-going with his parenting style and is a professional basketball player. This creates a lot of hilarious moments in the show as the two parents bounce off each other. Similarly, Taylor is a typical teenage girl who loves things like fashion and makeup, while Meadow is a ghost teenage girl who doesn't quite understand why humans are so obsessed with these things.
The comedic aspect of the show is well-executed, as it features a lot of physical humor, witty one-liners, and situational comedy. The Hathaway and ghost families often find themselves in difficult circumstances. For example, they might be forced to share the same bathroom while one family is trying to get ready for a school or work day, and the other family is trying to deal with supernatural occurrences. The writers also insert loads of pop culture references that are sure to resonate with the younger audience.
The Haunted Hathaways also touches on important themes, such as family relationships, acceptance of those who are different from us, and the idea of never judging a book by its cover. The two families initially have preconceived notions about each other based on stereotypes and ignorance, but as they get to know each other, they realize how similar they are. They learn to appreciate each other's differences, and in some cases, they even find ways to help each other grow as individuals.
The show was well-received by young viewers and parents alike, as it managed to balance humor and heart with supernatural elements. Its cast was also seen as a strength, with most of the actors delivering excellent performances. It was also refreshing to see a show featuring a family that was racially and culturally diverse.
Overall, The Haunted Hathaways was a charming and entertaining show that blended family life with haunted happenings. It featured a great cast, fun storytelling, and a perfect mix of scares and laughs, making it a great option for families to enjoy together.
The Haunted Hathaways is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (58 episodes). The series first aired on July 13, 2013.
