I liked it better when it was still called "Garfield in Disguise."

I personally think that the Heath Ledger Joker opening to The Office episode one year was the best.

Night Court, "Death Takes a Halloween"'

Greatest personification of Death ever!

Oldiron_79: I like the Treehouse of horror "Citizen Kang" Seems more appropriate every election cycle.

I voted for Kodoos


It's REALLY close for me. The one they mention (The Simpsons, "Treehouse of Horror V") wins barely because it's just so solid from beginning to end. "The Shinning", "Time and Punishment" ("Stupid bug, you go squish now!") and "Nightmare Cafeteria" ("Oh great, now I gotta work in the dark?") are all near perfect television.

The one with "Citizen Kang" loses mainly because "The Thing and I" (the one about Bart's "evil" twin) is kinda weak.

The English Major: Newsradio. Dave proving he can let his hair down by wearing Lisa's dress.


This only because I have a thing for Dave Foley in drag.

That is the most pathetic excuse for a Halloween episode list I have ever seen. Had a couple mandatory entries but the rest of the crap, are they serious?

This reads like a list that the author said "well it's halloween, guess I need an article about it. Hmmm I like TV. I know, I'll ask people in the office to name some shows you have seen that has Halloween episodes"

oukewldave: This reads like a list that the author said "well it's halloween, guess I need an article about it. Hmmm I like TV. I know, I'll ask people in the office to name some shows you have seen that has Halloween episodes"


"in the last year or two." is missing from that last sentence.

Mad_Radhu: Jgok: Mid_mo_mad_man: They picked the wrong Buffy episode. The season 2 episode were they turn into their costumes was better

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

Anya is a bunny, your argument is invalid.


The bunny suit covered her cleavage, so YOUR argument is invalid :P

Capt. Sparkles: 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.


I was going to mention that one. That one was disturbing in a great way.

King Of The Hill: Hilloween. The Old-fashioned Hallowe'en of Hank's childhood vs the overbearing self-righteous misuse of the Church by Junie Harper. I'm on Hank's side of the argument, and when Peggy reads the riot act to Luanne, that should be written in stone.

The christmas episodes of Two Guys and a Girl were one-offs that were fun and clever, they actually killed off most or all of the cast in at least one of them.

sno man: list fails without some Rosanne love.


KrispyKritter: sno man: list fails without some Rosanne love.

^^^^^^^^^^^This.


ding ding ding!

after spending a large portion of my weekend watching the marathon of rosanne halloween episodes, i couldn't even bother reading beyond your posts (#s 2 & 3 of this thread)!

the pranks, the costumes, the true smiles you could see on the faces of the cast members who all obviously had real fun making those episodes...those are true classics!

the cosby show one was great...and as for the simpsons they should just say every treehouse of horror...and of course the great pumpkin is great

but list = fail for exclusion of rosanne!

garfield and friends was one of the best shows every (cartoon or otherwise) and the specials were always good too. don't know what the heck happened post-series with the crappy 3d animated shows...and i just can't bring myself to watch the live-action movies

i'd also forgotten about the home improvement halloweens. they were about as good as rosanne. you could tell folks on those 2 shows and on cosby were really into it.

and the king of the hill "hilloween" got me all ticked off at religious lady, and had me praising hank for standing up for tradition!

Stark Raving Mad halloween episode is my favorite of all time. NPH, Tony Shalhoub, Eddie McClintock. One of the best short lived sitcoms ever.

Pretty much any Treehouse of Horror from the 90s gets it done for me. Maybe even a few from the early 2000s.

They wrote a contract, written in blood...Even if it meant returning from the grave

That's a great episode. I like Bobby siding with his dad despite not understanding the issue at all.

Glad they include Community, but I'd choose this one instead:

That one absolutely crushed it. I rarely LOL while watching stuff by myself, but that did it.
