Before catching new episodes of Comedy Bang! Bang! and The Birthday Boys tonight, why not spend the day revisiting some great Halloween moments on TV? Yeah, we know you’re probably at work, but let’s be realistic here, you’re wearing a costume and eating candy. Odds are today is one big party, anyway.
7. The Office
While everyone else goes all out for Halloween, Jim Halpert was the king of genius slacker Halloween costumes.
6. Saturday Night Live
SNL has done a number of great Halloween-themed sketches over the years, but last year’s Wes Anderson parody is one of the best. Speaking of which, “Stop-Motion Mouse” would make a great costume.
5. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown TV special
No matter how bitter and cynical we get with age, the Peanuts gang still warms our hearts. Or maybe it’s this candy corn-flavored whiskey we’ve been drinking.
4. Parks and Rec
Who knew Ann’s Halloween party would kick of a tradition of awesome Halloween episodes where Tom is even more over-the-top than usual?
3. The Muppet Show
You can’t get much more Halloween than Vincent Price. Watch him scare the stuffing out of Kermit and crew.
Every year, Roseanne went above and beyond with their Halloween episodes. In fact, they were doing the tricked-out pumpkin carving before anyone.
1. The Simpsons
The “Treehouse of Horror” series has become such a long standing and popular tradition that even Hollywood big hitters like Guillermo del Toro lend their talents to the couch gag. How many movie references do you spot in this opening?
