What Are Your Favorite Halloween TV Specials?

By Kelly Conaboy / October 25, 2012 - 11:00 am

Halloween is just around the corner, which makes this upcoming weekend the perfect time to gather around the television with your friends and family and watch all of your favorite Halloween TV specials! Yay! Yayayayay! Halloween TV specials are perfect because they are never scary, because apparently there are people out there who do not like to be scared (?), but they are still festive and a fun way to celebrate this special time of year. (For those of you who do not think that Halloween is a holiday that necessarily needs to be celebrated, and that maybe the holidays that you’re forced to celebrate are enough, I want to say this: WHAT? Holidays are the best! Enjoy them when you can! What’s wrong with you? Go to the dollar store and get some spooky decorations and put them up around your house, you will enjoy it! #YOLO.) Plus, for whatever reason, just about EVERY television show has done at least one Halloween special. After the jump I’ve posted clips from a few of my favorites, though I’m sure I’m forgetting many, many wonderful other favorites, which you will have to provide. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITES? Boo!

Freaks and Geeks: “Tricks and Treats”

Friends: “The One With The Halloween Party”

Boy Meets World: “Who’s Afraid Of Cory Wolf”

The Office: “Halloween”

It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

The Simpsons: “Treehouse of Horror V”

The Young Ones: “Nasty”

All wonderful. All festive. None scary. Now it’s your turn!
