"Welcome to Hauntlywood" is a sneak peek to "Frights, Camera, Action!". It was released on the Walmart website and is expected to be included on Walmart's version of the "Frights, Camera, Action!" DVD. Being complementary to the other TV special, "Welcome to Hauntlywood" also heavily promotes the Frights, Camera, Action! - Hauntlywood doll assortment.
The entirety of Monster High has been invited to the premiere of Veronica Von Vamp's latest movie. Spectra reports on the event, delighted by all that is going on but eager for an actual scoop. She spots her fellow student Operetta talking with Honey Swamp, who did camera work for the movie. Spectra decides to eavesdrop in hopes of getting information about the movie's content.
To her horror, Operetta and Honey describe a movie that sounds everything but entertaining. They talk about how “she”, whom Spectra assumes to be Veronica, just sleeps and watches the grass grow. Having heard enough, Spectra rushes to them and calls for the premiere party to be ended if there's only such a boring movie to celebrate.
Amused, Operetta and Honey explain they weren't talking about the movie, but about their grandmothers, whom they've discovered are best friends. Spectra is relieved she assumed wrongly for the sake of the premiere party, but is sad that this means she has no scoop. Operetta offers her another scoop to make up for it: her grandmother's secret ghoulash recipe.
- The premiere party is depicted as happening differently than it does in "Frights, Camera, Action!". This can either mean "Welcome to Hauntlywood" represents an alternative sub-continuity or takes place long after "Frights, Camera, Action!" and concerns another premiere party.
- The mini-TV special is not necessarily called "Welcome to Hauntlywood". The file itself is called "MH_Operetta_Promo", which is barely a title. The Walmart page is the thing titled or tagged "Welcome to Hauntlywood", which works well as a title for the mini-TV special.
