Needs to be repeated.

/The costumes alone were some of the best on TV.

I like the Treehouse of horror "Citizen Kang" Seems more appropriate every election cycle.

I voted for Kodoos

I, for one, would like to see a 24h Treehouse of Horror marathon.

List fails miserably without the Halloween Newhart.

"They've kidnapped Gene Barry!"
 
2012-10-28 10:30:35 AM
The original Treehouse of Horror, specifically the interpretation of "The Raven"

I was going to call bs on the link for not including epidemiology in the list, but then I found it in its proper spot, right at number one

I'm with Oldiron_79 and Stavr0 - just give me some Treehouse of Horror and I'm all set. The aforementioned "Citizen Kang" ("Very well - abortions for some, miniature American flags for others!") and "The Shinning" ("Shhh, you wanna get sued!") are, of course, phenomenal, but I also especially loved "Clown without Pity" ("The toppings contain potassium benzoate...that's bad.") and "The Devil and Homer Simpson" ("'Dear Homer, I.O.U. one emergency donut. Signed, Homer.' Bastard! He's always one step ahead!").

Came here to say this. List is a loser.

jchic: THIS!


It's tradition to watch that episode on Halloween. The whole Matthew list of costumes is great too. And the scariest part of the episode? The psychic predicting Bill's death. Easily one of the most terrifying moments in TV.

I was going to say the same thing. Roseanne and Home Improvement had some great Halloween episodes.

Some of the psych halloween episodes are great.

This year's Sunny Halloween episode was great. McPoyles on bath salts.

Looking forward to the Venture Bros special.

Pyramids of Mars, ep. 1. At least it had a Universal Monster vibe.

Still not as good as "Who Got Dee Pregnant". The escalation of the joke of "Dee as a bird" was very well done, with the great payoff of an ostrich onscreen.

Friday the 13th, the series, when they were trapped in the Vault, I think

So much this. They had some really great Halloween episodes, especially in the earlier seasons. Their Halloween version of A Christmas Carol is my personal favorite.

Stavr0: I, for one, would like to see a 24h Treehouse of Horror marathon.


eh, you'd only watch the first 10 episodes or so before turning it off.
 
2012-10-28 01:04:48 PM
They picked the wrong Buffy episode. The season 2 episode were they turn into their costumes was better
 
2012-10-28 01:15:06 PM
...The Phineas and Ferb Halloween ep. Funny in and of itself, but an all time hysterical, stand-up-and-applaud-in-your-own-living-room moment when Dad asks a question about horror movies.


/gotta see it, couldn't possibly explain it

Well this isn't much of a horror movie where are the rock and roll musical numbers.

No Treehouse of Horror where Bart was riding the bus and saw the monster wrecking it? Fail.

This!

And the author's breadth of TV exposure seems to be limited to the last 5 years, and the CB special that they watched in the 6th grade. There should be a minimum age requirement for anyone to generate a "best ever" list of anything.

The new South Park ep was pretty farking great.

Half the list could have been Treehouse episodes. If you have to limit it to one, it's hard to argue against The Shinning.
 
2012-10-28 01:48:41 PM
The list fails without "Pink Eye" from South Park.

Also, the uncomfortable humor of having Louie's daughter dressed up in blackface as Frederick Douglas is actually a bit undone in Season 3 when her mother is shown to be African-American. Or maybe it just adds to the weirdness. I'm just not sure.

Came here to say this. Gachnar was cool enough, but the costumes were better.

Gunny Highway: Great episode.


Venture Bros. dressed as Star Wars characters and Hank as The Bat.

Anya is a bunny, your argument is invalid.

Good to see the Freaks and Geeks episode make the list...Would have liked to see the That 70's Show Halloween episode with copious references to Hitchcock movies.
 
2012-10-28 02:49:39 PM
Rosanne owned Halloween. it was their "Christmas episode" from what i remember them saying in some interviews.
 
2012-10-28 02:53:40 PM
Reaper had a great one too. As well as The Real Ghostbusters.

Rosanne, Home Improvement, Martin.

The New Adventures of Beans Baxter episode "A Nightmare on Beans' Street" is one of my favourites. Especially who they cast as "The Pumpkin Princess".

Another good Halloween episode was the Invader Zim Halloween episode. (Even if they did rip off the plot from the Dark Seed video game.)
 
2012-10-28 03:51:48 PM
The X-Files - "Home"

While not really a Halloween episode, it was billed as a Halloween special and then subsequently banned from being re-aired on TV for a few years. You know a show is good when it's too graphic for Fox to show again.
 
2012-10-28 03:53:49 PM
MLP's "Nightmare Night" episode was a fun one in my opinion.
