Identify movie where woman and baby are killed by exploding mailbox prank

Movie identification request: There's a movie that features a group of friends who grew up together and are now back together as adults. When they were kids, some of them put a cherry bomb or some other big explosive in a woman's mailbox as a prank, and while they were watching for it to go off, she came out to get the mail carrying a baby. They tried to stop her (I think) but the explosive went off, and presumably she and the baby were killed, traumatizing the boy who did it (?) for life. For years, I've thought that was "12 and Holding" but I just watched that today, and while there are some similarities, that's not what I thought it was. Can anyone identify the movie with the exploding mailbox for me? IMDB didn't seem to find anything using obvious keywords.

And everyone lived happily ever after...

I-can't-believe-I'm-using-my-question-for-this-Filter: I saw a cartoon movie as a kid and can't remember what it was. I thought it was Care Bears but the two plot summaries for their movies aren't ringing a bell. Something was going around turning kids and/or bears into dark blobs of unhappiness. [more inside]

Rainy everyday but one...what's this movie?

Challenge: find me that movie/tv movie for children. I remember this one from my childhood, but don't remember the title. Can you help? It rains every day except once a year. All of these children are in school and looking forward to the sun coming out. One little girl is locked in a closet by some mean bullies and misses the sun coming out. She misses the grass growing, the flowers blooming, and all the frolicking. The end is her running through the flowers/rain after she got out somehow. Anyone remember this? Probably late 70s or early 80s.

Identify this monster tale?

I'm trying to track down something I remembered watching on television a long time ago. The only thing I can really remember is the climax of the story, which I vaguely recall was about these parents or caretakers (babysitters, perhaps) telling two young children about some kind of bogeyman. At the end, a giant arm reaches through the front door and grabs them while the children watch. I have a feeling it could have been an episode of an Outer Limits type show, or maybe a Trilogy of Terror type thing.

Help me find out more about my beloved "Kung-Fu Master" t-shirt, and, in the best of all possible worlds, replace it when it dies. [more inside]
