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.
