October is full of great holiday-themed episodes of some of my favorite TV shows. Enjoy a peek at some of what I consider to be the best Halloween specials from my childhood!
#5. The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror
Even casual Simpsons fans (like me) tune in for the annual Halloween special. They’re too much fun!
#4. Roseanne – “Boo!”
Roseanne did a Halloween special every year, but this one is by far the best.. Dan & Roseanne set up a haunted house in their home and try to scare each other. As a kid I always wanted to build a haunted house for trick-or-treaters at Halloween, so I loved this episode!
#3. Salute Your Shorts – Zeke the Plumber
Show of hands.. who remembers this?? The first time it aired, my parents were working late and I was home alone in my room, watching it on my lil 13″ television. It scared me so bad that I closed my door and refused to come out until I heard my parent’s car in the driveway. Pure awesome.
#2. Garfield’s Halloween
Man, I grew up watching this. You just can’t beat classic Garfield.
#1. It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
No explanation needed. Is there any other viable option for the #1 slot here? C’mon.
