* ''WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows'' has a yearly tradition of doing a special Halloween episode of his series One Hit Wonderland on a song tangentially related to spooky themes, in episodes entitled "One Hit Wonderland Spook-tacular"s. He broke the tradition once in 2015, simply not being able to come up with a song and instead doing one of his standard Pop Song Reviews for Halloween that year. His Halloween episodes are as follows:

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* {{Grimm}} had the second season episode La Llorona, featuring the titular spirit abducting children and drowning them, and Monroe borrowing a morningstar from the trailer to use in his decorations.
* ''Series/TheBradyBunch'': "Fright Night," from Season 4, is all about ghosts and ghouls and the kids scaring each other. Originally aired in late October 1972, this episode is often rerun on Halloween.
* ''Series/TheDukesOfHazzard'': "The Ghost of the General Lee" and "The Hazzardgate Horror" are two supernatural-themed episodes that were originally aired around Halloween, and are often shown in reruns at that same time of the year.
* ''Series/EvenStevens'' had an episode where everyone starts acting weird after getting eye exams. Turns out Ren was brainwashing everyone and turning them into "Renplicates" (The plot is a little reminiscent of Invasion of the Body snatchers.) In the end Ren is unable to fully make Louis, the only one that she hasn't turned yet, into a Renplicate. This then cuts to Louis telling the story to Beans. Louis tries to convince him that this is not a story and actually happened despite things appearing as if none of the events ever happened.
* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'': Each season except the seventh has one.
** Season 1: Sabrina's cousin Amanda is introduced as she has to attend a family gathering and sends a double to Harvey's Halloween party.
** Season 2: Sabrina throws a Halloween party of her own with Other Realm termites in the house and talking furniture.
** Season 3: Sabrina's Great Aunt gives her a doll for a present that locks down the house and summons monsters to scare Sabrina and her friends
** Season 4: Sabrina gets attacked by zombies. Or so it seems. When they finally get to her, all they do is dance to the tune of ''Larger Than Life'' (in what is obviously a parody/reference to Music/MichaelJackson's ''Thriller'' music video).
** Season 5: She throws another party only this time without her aunts' permission and it involves Roxie falling for Frankenstein
** Season 6: Sabrina and her friends end up living a who dunnit murder game
* ''Series/{{Goosebumps}}'': The afromentioned original series books were adapted into TV episodes.
* ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'', unsurprisingly, had several of these.
* ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'' did one of these every year the show was on the air.
** one even had Roseanne [[YetAnotherChristmasCarol being visited by the ghosts of Halloween past, present, and future to teach her the true meaning of Halloween.]]
* ''Series/NightCourt'' had several Halloween episodes, including one where resident JerkAss Dan cheerfully "sells his soul" to a man in a devil costume, who then reveals a worrying amount of detailed knowledge about Dan's life and crimes. It turns out [[spoiler: it's an elaborate practical joke.]]
** There's also one where Harry has a defendant locked up for contempt after he claims to be Death... and people mysteriously [[DeathTakesAHoliday stop dying]].
* ''Series/HomeImprovement'' did tons, maybe one every single year, often involving the Taylors throwing a Halloween party, Tim inventing new extra-spooky Halloween decorations, impromptu scary prank competions, etc. Highlights of the series.
* ''Series/FamilyMatters'' did this once every year. In one of the more famous episodes, we meet an evil ventriloqist doll come to life named Steevil. In the final Halloween episode, he returns with a partner named Carlsbad.
* ''Series/{{Newhart}}'' had a Halloween episode in which all the residents of Stratford (except Dick Loudon, [[OnlySaneMan natch]]) become convinced that an [[Literature/TheWarOfTheWorlds alien invasion]] is imminent.
* Even ''Series/{{MASH}}'' was able to take time out from the horrors of war to indulge in some Halloween tomfoolery. In the episode "Trick or Treatment", the staff don costumes and share ghost stories, unaware that an apparently dead soldier outside is actually clinging to life. Fortunately, Father Mulcahy realizes the mistake just in time and the soldier is rushed into surgery to save him.
* The ''Series/{{Benson}}'' episode "The Stranger" has the governor's mansion visited by a "Mr. G. Reaper" on a stormy Halloween night.
* ''Series/FraggleRock'' had an episode (not explicitly referred to as a Halloween episode, but it ''was'' released on at least one Halloween-themed home video release) called "The Terrible Tunnel" about a place where Fraggles went and supposedly disappeared.
* ''Series/FreaksAndGeeks'' managed to squeeze one of these into its short run. In fact, "Tricks and Treats" was actually the second episode of the series.
* ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'' episode "Haunted".
* ''Series/WhatILikeAboutYou'' did two, one in each of its third and fourth seasons. Interestingly, in the third season, only Holly's circle dressed up, while in the fourth, only Val's circle did.
* ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' did a Halloween episode ("Chuck vs. The Sandworm") that among other things featured Halloween decorations, a Halloween party (with Chuck & Morgan going as a sandworm from Dune), and Morgan's new clothes style being mistaken for a Gordon Gekko outfit.
* ''Series/ThePretender'' had an episode where Jarod discovered Halloween. At the end of the episode, he goes trick-or-treating dressed as the scariest thing he knows: [[spoiler: Mr. Raines]].
* ''Series/LizzieMcGuire'' had one where [[AlphaBitch Kate]] took control of organising a Halloween dance and insulted Miranda's Day of the Dead traditions, kicking off a plot where evil spirits decided to punish them for it [[spoiler: but of course it turns out to be a prank to get back at Kate with Miranda's parents in costume]].
* Halloween episodes tend to be rare in British series as the occasion is less of a big deal in the United Kingdom, but ''Series/MyFamily'' (often cited as an "American-''style''" sitcom) did have one - which, for no apparent reason, was released in March.
** BritishBrevity? Just a guess, but it probably finished it's season in April and didn't return again until January, therefore there wouldn't have been much choice.
* ''Series/{{QI}}'' has had three: the series D episode "Death", the series G episode "Gothic" and the series H episode "Horrible".
* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', Halloween is a holiday for the supernatural, and there's an unspoken rule about vampires and other supernatural terrors keeping to themselves and staying out of trouble for that day, but that doesn't make it any easier for the Scoobies.
** Season 2 had "Halloween", where the trick-or-treaters in Sunnydale are subjected to a literal case of BecomingTheCostume thanks to Giles's former friend, Ethan Rayne. This unfortunately includes Buffy, who chose to dress up as an 18th century lady in an effort to impress Angel, and becomes a DistressedDamsel for the duration of the spell. And just when you think things couldn't get any worse, Spike finds out about Ethan's antics through Drusilla, and comes pretty close to offing Buffy.
** Season 4 had "[[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS4E4FearItself Fear, Itself]]", where someone getting blood on a supposedly fake mystical symbol makes the college HauntedHouse significantly more lethal, subjecting Xander, Willow, Oz, and Buffy to their current fears. Xander gets rendered invisible to the others (being left behind while the others are at college), a simple tracking spell of Willow's gets ''way'' out of hand (getting too far out of her league with the magicks), Oz transforms and accidentally hurts Willow (losing control and hurting those he loves), and Buffy gets stuck fighting a bunch of zombies by herself (being abandoned by those she loves and being alone because she is the Slayer). Also memorable for introducing Anya's fear of bunnies, [[Awesome/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Giles making a door with a chainsaw]], and [[spoiler:the five inches tall Gachnar]].
** Season 6 had "All the Way", where Dawn sneaks out to raise hell with her friend Janice and a couple boys, only to discover they're part of a group of vampires trying to rebel against the "Halloween holiday" spirit. Also provides setup for some of the events in "[[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS6E7OnceMoreWithFeeling Once More, With Feeling]]". (Willow using a spell on Tara, Xander and Anya's engagement, Giles's fear that Buffy isn't taking responsibility because of him)
* ''Series/QuantumLeap'' had a surprisingly spooky MindScrew of a Halloween Episode. Sam jumps into a horror novelist living in Maine (who is totally not Creator/StephenKing) to whom really strange and creepy things are happening. Sam is seeing things nobody else does, people are dropping like flies, Al is behaving weirdly and Ziggy can't tell anyone anything. Then things get downright scary and Al goes from just acting strange to flat out evil. [[spoiler: After he finally jumps again, Al appears and tells Sam that Ziggy hasn't been able to find or reach Sam since before his last jump and Al hasn't seen him since then either.]] [[note]]The episode has another layer of infamy add to it. From the very first time it aired back in 1990, weird events have been associated with this episode. This episode has the highest incidence of VCR / cable / local station failure than any other episode aired. There have been numerous reports of VCR?s cutting out during the taping of this episode, local station and cable companies dropping their signal. [[TheScottishTrope Even mentioning it by name is hazardous]], as one net. Leaper can attest. He lost his job AND his net - hence ''QL'' fans usually refer to it as "The Halloween Episode" or "The B**giem*n".[[/note]]
* ''Series/PushingDaisies'' did a Halloween episode in their first season. The plot centered around the cast trying to track down a "ghost", and actually aired on October 31st. The second season episode didn't fall on the same date and wasn't about Halloween, but the show still managed to put its cast in costumes that week.
* ''Series/{{Angel}}'' had a company Halloween party for the evil supernatural law firm, analogous to a company Christmas party.
* On ''Series/{{Reaper}}'', the office that takes back captured souls is closed for the holiday. Also, the Devil ''hates'' Halloween because it's too commercialized and has become the one day when people ''don't'' believe in him.
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'' had a Halloween party featuring Chandler & Ross in the lamest arm wrestling match ever.
* ''Series/That70sShow'''s Halloween episode was an Creator/AlfredHitchcock homage.
** They had another where the gang visits their old and run-down elementary school, with Fez dressed as none other then 1960's Batman.
* ''Series/{{The Office|US}}'' (NBC series) has had three episodes set on Halloween. The first episode had Michael having to fire an employee (he had waited until Halloween because firing employee is a scary thought for him). The second had Dwight, Kevin and Creed [[ItsBeenDone all dressed as Heath Ledger's version of The Joker]]. The third had everybody competing in a costume contest to win a coupon book.
* ''Series/GhostWhisperer'''s Halloween episode has Melinda investigating a headless horseman.
* In the ''Series/{{Bones}}'' episode "Mummy in the Maze," Brennan, Booth, and [[TheLabRat "Squints"]] work to solve the murder of a girl left in a Halloween maze while getting ready for a Halloween party. Costumes include the captain of the Titanic, a cow (well, the back end of one), Comicbook/{{Catwoman}}, and Cher. Brennan and Booth end up catching the bad guy while dressed as WonderWoman and a Squint, respectively.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' has "It's the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester." A man dies from eating [[RazorApples candy filled with razor blades]], a girl drowns in boiling water while bobbing for apples, and the brothers attempt to stop two witches from raising the demon Samhain before [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Castiel and Uriel]] destroy the town.
* ''Series/UltramanTiga'' episode 8, "Halloween Night". This is a typical Halloween episode, with cast in costumes, kids trick-or-treating, and a Halloween-themed enemy, except that the series is from Japan, where Halloween was rarely celebrated. The episode specifically mentions that the town in question celebrates it and that it may someday be celebrated all over Japan. They turned out to be correct; the popularity of Halloween in Japan has drastically increased since the time period.
* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' had three: "Witch Hunt", "Murder 2.0", and "Code of Conduct" in that order.
* On ''Series/{{Castle}}'', Rick Castle dresses up as [[{{Series/Firefly}} Mal Reynolds]] during his Halloween episode. His daughter tells him that it's [[ActorAllusion been five years and he should just get it over it]]. In the same episode, the BodyOfTheWeek is found in a graveyard with a stake through his heart.
* ''Series/TalesFromTheDarkside'' of course had a few usually involving some miser trying to ruin the Holiday for everyone. One ep focused on a debt collector who made a tradition of running a spooky house (basically just things rigged to scare people) and having those that owe him money have their kids go inside and search for the receipts. If they found it, the debts would be cleared. Course the collecter would do his best to scare the kids away before they could. However one particular Halloween, real monsters come to pay a visit and well..you can imagine what happens.
* ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' being an anthology series, didn't have a particular traditional Halloween Episode, instead it delivers ''The Grave'', a western GhostStory about a gun-for-hire who takes on a seemingly easy bet to visit the grave of his recently-deceased rival. Of course, being ''The Twilight Zone'', he gets more than what he bargained for.
* ''Series/TheLateShowWithStephenColbert'' went all-out on its [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLiZxWe0ejyv8yakskAfIzs6WwsGsRVDVI October 30, 2015]] episode; completely redecorating the Ed Sullivan Theater in Halloween fare, Colbert dressing as a vampire for the whole show, and dedicating the whole episode to Halloween-based subjects, including a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTXW-tO-fOs performance]] from the satanic metal band Music/{{Ghost}}.
** The October 31, 2016 episode sadly did not go to the same level and was not a full Halloween episode, though it did have a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXXBOpNEOrw&index=1&list=PLiZxWe0ejyv8bXivokxPYQ1ssABO2evHs Halloween-themed opening sketch]] and a special interview with ghost hunters [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qg0Hwjb5YtI&index=6&list=PLiZxWe0ejyv8bXivokxPYQ1ssABO2evHs The Ghost Brothers]], as well as an acknowledgement and a few Halloween-based jokes in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLH36Tr-8pE&list=PLiZxWe0ejyv8bXivokxPYQ1ssABO2evHs&index=2 monologue]], which house band Jon Batiste and Stay Human played out with [[Music/MichaelJackson Thriller]].
* ''Series/CriminalMinds''
** The episode "About Face" is set around Halloween, and featured a villain who killed his victims by cutting their faces off, after terrorizing them a bit with missing persons flyers with their image on them that he'd cover the inside and outside of their houses with.
** "Devil's Night" has [[PyroManiac a serial arsonist]] who always strikes during Halloween festivities.
* ''Series/{{Reba}}'' has one, in which Reba attempted to pull pranks on her family and to get her youngest child to get into the spirit of scaring people on the holiday.
* There are two Halloween episodes in ''Series/{{Charmed}}'', the first being "All Halliwell's Eve" in season 3 where the sisters get sent back in time to colonial Virginia. Contains three {{Shout Out}}s as Phoebe dresses up as Elvira and Piper dresses up as Glinda. Phoebe also cackles while riding a broomstick. Another episode in season 8, "Kill Billie Vol. 1", is set on Halloween but has a separate plot entirely.
* ''Series/AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'' has "The Tale of the Twisted Claw" which featured two boys trick-or-treating at the house of a witch who gives them a magical claw that grants wishes.
* The ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' fought the [[http://powerrangers.wikia.com/wiki/Frankenstein_monster Frankenstein monster]] in "Life's A Masquerade" and the [[http://powerrangers.wikia.com/wiki/Mighty_Morphin_1_Monsters#Pumpkin_Rapper Pumpkin Rapper]] in "Trick or Treat" in season one. In the next season, [[BigBad Lord Zedd]] traps Tommy in a dimension with several monsters in ''Zedd's Monster Mash''.
** In ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'', the episode "It Came From Angel Grove" featured the surprise return of Lord Zedd and Rita, as Adam awoke on Halloween to find his friends and the rest of the town (including Zordon) transformed into a Universal Horror parody of itself - [[spoiler:which in the end turns out to be AllJustADream.]]
** The ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'' two-parter "Ronny on Empty" was set around Halloween, concluding with a costume party held at the mansion.
** ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' has "Party Monsters", an episode where all the previously slain monsters have a Halloween party in the afterlife, discussing their encounters with the Samurai Rangers and how they almost beat them. In short, it was just a ClipShow.
*** ''Samurai'' has now had a second: "Trickster Treat", which is not a clip show though it uses less original footage than "Party Monsters" did and that's not counting Sentai footage.
** ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'' has ''Raising Spirits'', another clip show where the group goes to a Halloween party. The monster of the week looks in his crystal ball to see the past of the five teenagers with attitude, but keeps seeing the Power Rangers defeating monsters, not realizing that they are one in the same. Also there was a Megaforce [[http://www.nick.com/videos/clip/power-rangers-megaforce-halloween-promo.html Halloween safety PSA]].
** ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' also has a Halloween clip show, "The Ghostest with the Mostest"; one of the Rangers is kidnapped and replaced, but because they were in identical costumes, no one (including the audience) knows who was taken. The clips are used as the Rangers answer questions about their past to prove their identities.
* Surprisingly enough, unlike ''Power Rangers'', it wasn't until 2016's ''Series/DobutsuSentaiZyuohger'' that ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' would have it's first Halloween episode.
* The 8th episode of ''Series/UltramanTiga'' focused around the host of the titular Ultraman stopping a Kaiju who was disguised as a witch.
* ''Series/BarneyAndFriends'' has a direct-to-video entry called "Barney's Halloween Party." It actually covers Halloween traditions well, but emphasis is placed on dressing up and playing pretend, rather than anything scary.
* In a season three episode of ''Series/VeronicaMars'', Logan and Veronica go to a Halloween party dressed as Jack and Meg White of the White Stripes. Their costumes, however, are pretty lame.
* The second season of ''Series/{{Glee}}'' had one of these, with a ''[[Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow Rocky Horror Picture Show]]'' theme.
* ''Series/TheBill'' had a Halloween episode with the cops on stake-out swapping ghost stories from their past careers, each of which [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane could have had a rational explanation]], until [[AgentScully DS Stanton]] [[SkepticismFailure encountered a definite ghost]].
* ''Series/{{Community}}'' had one in each of its first four seasons.
** "[[Recap/CommunityS1E07IntroductionToStatistics Introduction to Statistics]]" has Annie hosting a Dia Del Muertos party. Notable for Abed's Franchise/{{Batman}} costume/voice.
** "[[Recap/CommunityS2E06Epidemiology Epidemiology]]" (screencapped above) has the dean [[TooDumbToLive getting biohazardous material from an army surplus store and thinking it's taco meat]], which starts a {{zombie apocalypse}}. Strangely for a show with no fantasy elements, they manage to handle the resolution in a way that leaves the episode entirely in continuity.
** "[[Recap/CommunityS3E05HorrorFictionInSevenSpookySteps Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps]]" has Britta discovering that one of the group displays homicidal tendencies, and pressuring the group into telling scary stories in an attempt to weed out the killer.
** "[[Recap/CommunityS4E02ParanormalParentage Paranormal Parentage]]" has the group visiting Pierce's mansion, which he claims to be haunted.
* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' had a minor one in Season Two. The main plot was about J.D.'s brother, but the B-story was that some of the staff were in costume, and Cox and Kelso's annoyance at "this, the mother of all non-holidays".
* Some talk shows have a tradition where the hosts dress up for Halloween. Usually, this involves elaborate costumes and themes or skits. In the case of ''Live with Kelly'', it's basically a perennial sketch show.
* ''Series/TwoGuysAGirlAndAPizzaPlace'' had three that really ran with the concept:
** "Two Guys, a Girl and a Psycho Halloween": A psycho killer that looks like Berg is killing off the main characters one-by-one. [[spoiler:Turns out to be [[Series/TheDrewCareyShow Mimi]] in disguise, trying to get her own show... and all the pizza she can eat.]]
** "Halloween 2: Mind Over Body": A mad scientist switches Pete and Ashley's brains and then Berg and Sharon's. HilarityEnsues.
** "The Satanic Curses": Jealous of their status as TrueCompanions, Irene summons Satanic powers to curse Berg, Pete and Sharon. Berg becomes increasingly deformed, Pete grows Ashley's head on his shoulder and Sharon grows a penis.
* ''Series/UglyBetty'' had one in its first season, where Betty's idea of celebrating is to dress up as a butterfly for what is supposed to be a costume party at work. Betty shows up in her outfit... only to find out that there is no costume party (it appears Marc [[ItsACostumePartyISwear made a series of prank e-mails]]).
* ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' had a two part Halloween episode, the first part dealt with the annual party at a jock's house. The second was a dream induced by a sugar crash in which Ned was a vampire who was having trouble passing his "turning into a bat" exam, Cookie was a werewolf looking for a transformation trigger to chase off Franken-Loomer, and Moze was a ghost looking to kill someone because she was the only ghost at school.
* ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'' had one in season two where Cory thinks he's been bitten by a werewolf and one in season five where Jack dates a girl who claims to be a witch. Another episode, "Boys II Mensa" from season one, had a Halloween-themed B plot.
* In the ''Series/SmallWonder'' episode "Haunted House" (1987), the Lawsons think a ghost has invaded their house after the electricity goes out, so they call a pair of bungling ghost hunters named Dickens and Fenster. No one seems to be aware that an electrified Vicki is responsible.
* ''Series/HawaiiFiveO'' had one in the second season, "Ka Iwi Kapu." Five-0 investigates the murders of two college kids out [[FirstPersonCamera shooting video]] for a [[Film/TheBlairWitchProject documentary]] on legendary [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Hawaiian ghost warriors]] in an [[AncientTomb ancient Hawaiian graveyard]] at [[TemptingFate midnight]] on [[AllHallowsEve Halloween]].

* ''Series/{{Dinosaurs}}'' had an episode which originally aired on October 31 where Robbie, stuck home baby-sitting Baby, told a scary story about becoming a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent were-caveman]]. This scared Baby so much he was going to tell on Robbie unless he was given candy. Since there was none in the house Robbie took Baby next door to ask for some.
-->'''Neighbor:''' Is this some kind of trick?
-->'''Robbie:''' No, it's just a treat for the baby.
** They're so successful getting candy that they decide to do it every year.
* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "Catspaw".

* While it did air 1 day before Halloween ''Series/MostExtremeEliminationChallenge'' pitted Real Monsters and Advertising Mascots against each other (At least on the Broadcast version).
* In the ''[[Series/BabylonFive Babylon 5]]'' episode "Day of the Dead", several of the main characters are visited by deceased associates on the Brakiri holiday of that name. It's [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane left ambiguous]] whether or not this is a genuine supernatural phenomenon, an issue blurred further by the existence in this universe of telepathy (including [[LivingMemory residual mental "echoes"]]) and [[SoulJar techniques of storing and capturing people's essences]].
* ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryMurderHouse'' had a two-part Halloween story, which is the only time the ghosts are allowed to walk outside the house.
** The second episode of ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryAsylum'' is called "Tricks and Treats" , originally aired close to Halloween, and takes place on the night before Halloween, but whether Halloween is relevant to the episode is unclear; it might be the reason the kid who is brought into the asylum is possessed, but nothing confirms that.

The episode "A Room Full of Heroes" sees Frasier holding a Halloween party where each partygoer comes as their personal "hero" (for instance, Martin comes as Joe [=DiMaggio=], Daphne as EltonJohn, Roz as WonderWoman and Niles as his father); Frasier himself dresses as UsefulNotes/SigmundFreud, and one of the main jokes revolves around all the children thinking he eats brains.
* ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' had two: the RashomonStyle "Who Got Dee Pregnant?" in season 6, and season 8's "Maureen Ponderosa Wedding Massacre", which is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin about a wedding gone horribly wrong]] (the action doesn't actually happen on Halloween but involves a lot of the tropes present in such episodes).
* ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'': It's almost a ritual.
* ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' had a couple of Halloween episodes. The first one had Penny hosting a Halloween party at her apartment and the four guys all dressed up as Franchise/TheFlash and had to change their costumes.

* ''Series/HappyEndings'' had one entitled "Spooky Endings" where most of the cast went to a huge Halloween bash and the married couple handed out candy to trick-or-treaters in the suburbs... and wind up getting their door stolen.

* ''Series/TheDailyShowWithTrevorNoah'': [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvhqTNzpmYo Halloween 2016's]] episode is a variation that focused more on AdultFear focusing on a [[BadFuture dystopian future]] comprised of all the worst case scenarios if Donald Trump won the election [[spoiler: ...he did weeks later]]. While it has tons of NightmareFuel there are moments of BlackComedy here and there to be consistent with the tone of the rest of the show.
* ''Series/SeventhHeaven'': The first season had a Halloween episode where 6 of the 7 family members actually go out to celebrate Halloween but Mary (a young Creator/JessicaBiel) makes a point to stay home alone to eat ice cream, have a bath, and dance around the house ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyLw-jt2qrA the scene]] is rather well-known still), stating that "This is the ''only'' evening of the year I can have the house for myself!" (given that they are a family of 7 (later even 9) that also constantly have visitors, that's probably fair). The rest of the episode figured AnAesop where younger sister Lucy initially was scared of a disfigured old man but learned that she shouldn't judge people on their appearance, and he actually had a Heart Of Gold. Catherine Hicks, who played the mother in the series, later said that out of all the 11 years of episodes, this was her favorite one.
* ''Series/NewsRadio'' had one Halloween episode.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''' annual "WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror" episodes, which are anthologies containing [[ThreeShorts three short stories]] with a horror theme (PlayedForLaughs, of course, and non-canonical to the show's universe). Oddly enough, in later seasons most of these have premiered ''after'' Halloween, due to {{Fox}}'s World Series coverage pre-empting its Sunday prime time lineup at the end of October each year. Season 27 had ''two'' Halloween Episodes, the usual "Treehouse of Horror" and "Halloween of Horror", a canon episode that takes place in Springfield on Halloween.
* ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' episode "The Shaving" takes place on Halloween. Shake tries to teach a monster named Willie Nelson the way of scaring someone, by the end it seems Willie can't scare anyone. [[NotSoHarmless Then the trio looks in the attic.]]
* ''The WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker Show'' got a Halloween Special called "Spook-A-Nanny". It's included as an extra on the first ''Woody Woodpecker and Friends'' DVD collection, and [[SoBadItsGood worth watching for its cheese factor.]] Oh, and ghosts wearing Beatle wigs. No, really.
* WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck starred in a bunch of shorts with a semi-scary atmosphere, such as "Donald Duck and the Gorilla", "Donald's Lucky Day", and "Duck Pimples", but the true Halloween episode is fans' favorite "Trick or Treat", where Donald's [[JerkAss assholish]] treatment of his nephews leads to a witch helping the boys to get the best of their uncle.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/MickeysHouseOfVillains Mickey's House of Villains]]'' could be considered a Halloween episode of ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse''. There, the Disney animated villains kick all of the good guys out of the House and rename it the House of Villains. Jafar gets Mickey's job as the master of ceremonies, while Captain Hook and Hades get Donald and Goofy's jobs as chief assistants. The rest is your usual HOM stuff, with showing scary shorts instead of the usual upbeat ones.
** Other examples include the episodes "Halloween with Hades" and "House Ghosts".
* ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGoofs'': A Dracula-like vampire is the new guest at the house. He bites Gorgious as revenge for taking a red can, turning him into a vampire. vampire!Gorgious then later bites the aliens on their sleep, thus turning them all into vampires. In the end, he makes the vampire a cake for his birthday with garlic in it, which turns him into a human (as opposed to killing him). He opens a window to see the sun for the first time...and all of the aliens turn into ash.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'': Remember the ''Buffy'' Halloween episode where [[BecomingTheCostume everyone became the costumes they were wearing]]? Same plot, only with the Yugopotamians and four OmnicidalManiac robots thrown in for variety.
* ''WesternAnimation/TUFFPuppy'': Happy Howl-O-Ween episode has the villains stealing Halloween candy, and Keswick creating an army of zombies who are craving for candy.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutron'' takes great pleasure in pushing this trope to its stereotypical limit. In the episode, Jimmy creates a monster wheel designed to turn his friends into authentic monsters (a closer examination of the wheel shows Michael Jackson as an option) - the only problem is, the invention works a little too well, and Carl and Sheen end up as a real vampire and a real werewolf. They bite Cindy and Libby, who then join the ranks of bloodsuckers/flesheaters, and before you know it the whole town is out for a good ol' fashioned monster-mob.
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{CatDog}}'' episode "[=CatDogula=]" had Dog get bitten by Peruvian vampire ticks, so Cat tries desperately to find a cure. In the process, their friends are also bitten by the vampire ticks and turned into vampires. At the end, Cat drowns everyone in garlic juice, which cures everyone (even the Peruvian ticks). At the end, Winslow shows up, and reveals that he was bitten by a werewolf.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMask'': Skillit uses his powers to summon a zombie cowboy, a ghost knight, and a demonically-possesed warlock to crash the Coco Bongo's annual Halloween party. In the end, the Mask vanishes them to Skillit's home dimension by making them say the word "mask" backwards.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheTwistedTalesOfFelixTheCat'': Felix is persuaded to join the Black Cat Society, a secret society for people dressing and acting as black cats. He runs away when they try to take off Felix's mask (i.e., his face). When they discover that he is an actual black cat, they name him their king.
* ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'': Pinky sells his soul to the Devil so that Brain can take over the world. [[ChessWithDeath Brain then challenges Satan to a gymnastic competition for Pinky's soul]], and loses. However, when Pinky signed the contract giving his soul to the Devil, the Devil forgot to give him some sort of gizmo (with a really weird name and a vague explanation of its function), thus rendering the contract null and void, and saving Pinky's soul.
* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'': "Tiny Toons' Night Ghoulery": A parody of ''Creator/RodSerling's Series/NightGallery'' with Babs Bunny in the Serling role. One story is a parody of ''Frankenstein'' with Elmyra as Doctor Frankenstein, Dizzy as Igor, and the Gossamer as Frankenstein's Monster. Another is a parody of Creator/StephenKing's ''Literature/PetSematary'' with Elmyra's dead pets coming back from the grave as zombies. Another is a parody of ''Film/AbbottAndCostelloMeetFrankenstein'', with Buster Bunny and Plucky Duck as the titular duo, respectively. The final story is a parody of ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet", with Plucky as the Creator/WilliamShatner character and the gremlin from the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short ''Falling Hare'' as the monster (it also, to some extent, spoofs the final segment of ''Film/TwilightZoneTheMovie'').
* ''[[WesternAnimation/GarfieldSpecials Garfield's Halloween Adventure]]'' has the titular cat and Odie trick-or-treating. But when attempting to cross a river on a boat for extra candy, the two end up in a haunted mansion. Also features [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiIJw6dIAwQ really]] [[EarWorm catchy songs]].
* ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' has had at least two episodes specifically set during Halloween: "The Headless Horseman of Halloween" and "A Halloween Hassle at Dracula's Castle".
** The Day of Dead is used as the reason for Mystery Inc. to visit Mexico in the direct-to-DVD movie ''Scooby-Doo and the Monster of Mexico''.
** Halloween is the day used for ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheGoblinKing''.
** ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' used the Halloween episode straight.
** ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo'' has "Ghost Who's Coming To Dinner" In it, the gang meets an a real-life ghost on Halloween night and help him clear his name when a fake ghost attempts to scare everyone away.
** Not specifically a Halloween episode, but Creator/CartoonNetwork used to run an all-day ''Scooby-Doo'' marathon on the last day of daylight-saving time, meaning you'd get 25 hours of the show in one day. One year, during the commercial breaks, they ran bits of a ''Scooby-Doo''–themed version of ''Film/TheBlairWitchProject'', which eventually featured the line, "Maybe this time we shouldn't have meddled."
*** Also, Cartoon Network UK & Ireland once ran a marathon of Halloween-themed cartoons on the morning of April 1 as an AprilFoolsDay Joke.
* The ''WesternAnimation/PacMan'' cartoon also had two Halloween episodes: "Pacula" and "Trick or Chomp".
* Creator/HannaBarbera's version of ''WesternAnimation/TheLittleRascals'' had one: "Fright Night", in which three of the Rascals went trick-or-treating. I don't recall all of the details, but I do remember that Darla [[WholesomeCrossdresser dressed so as to resemble Alfalfa]].
** Four other episodes were similarly themed, though not specifically set on Halloween: "Rascals' Revenge", in which Butch and Woim dare the Rascals to enter an abandoned house; "Grin and Bear It", in which the Rascals' camping trip is disrupted when the Phantom Lumberjack abducts Porky; "Falling Heir", in which Spanky inherits a supposedly haunted castle, and "Wash and Werewolf", in which the boys watch a 3D horror movie and Alfalfa later thinks he's become a werewolf.
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' had one, "Along Came a Spider", in which Bumblebee, Bulkhead and Sari go trick-or-treating, dressed up as Dracula, a ghost (with a costume made out of a striped fumigation tent, so he looks more like a walking billowing circus), and Optimus Prime, respectively. [[spoiler:Also, Blackarachnia appears to confront Optimus about their past.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' had a Halloween episode, "Trick or Techrat", having the Holograms fixing a haunted opera house--and Terri, one of the Starlight Girls, learning not to scare at every thing.
* ''WesternAnimation/ClassOfTheTitans'' had a Halloween episode in which Hecate, the goddess of witchcraft, tried to escape from her prison in the moon. It also introduced Theresa's mystical powers.
* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' had an episode where the girls went to a party in their transformed fairy outfits.
* ''WesternAnimation/AaahhRealMonsters'': When Ickis, Krumm, and Oblina go to do their daily scares, there's a mixup with a kid wearing a Halloween costume of an Ickis-like creature. Krumm and Oblina go to the kid's Halloween party, believed by everyone to be just kids in costumes, and the kid goes to the monster world. The day after Halloween, everything is cleared.
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy's Boo-Haw-Haw'' had the Eds attempt to follow a map to "Spookyville", the ultimate trick-or-treating neighborhood. Unfortunately, an overdose of B-movies on [[CloudCuckoolander Ed's]] part causes him to hallucinate that the other kids of the cul-de-sac are movie monsters out to get him and his friends, and HilarityEnsues.
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' episode ''Last Laugh'' is considered a Halloween episode, despite the fact that the series is supposed to take place during the summer.

* The short-lived ''WesternAnimation/LloydInSpace'' had an episode in which the gang goes into a HauntedHouse type thing, only to come out to a version of the space station in the far future where it's completely deserted and a monster has apparently killed everyone. It turns out to be some variation of AllJustADream, but man, that whole episode was basically MoodWhiplash.
* There have been a few in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. The first, called "Pinkeye", is about Kenny becoming infected with a zombie virus and turning most of the townspeople into zombies; the second one is "Spookyfish", involving Stan receiving a killer goldfish from his aunt and meanwhile alternate universe versions of the boys show up; the third is "Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery", which involves the rock band Music/{{Korn}} solving a mystery involving pirate ghosts in an AffectionateParody of ''Scooby-Doo''; the fourth is "Hell on Earth 2006", involving Satan throwing a Halloween party; and the most recent one is "A Nightmare on [=FaceTime=]", in which Randy purchases an abandoned Blockbuster Video and [[Film/TheShining begins acting like Jack Torrance]], while Stan's attempt to use [=FaceTime=] results in his friends [[ItMakesSenseInContext being endangered by a group of killers]].
* There have been a couple in ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill''. The first one concerns a religious fanatic trying to ban Halloween from Arlen. In the second (definitely one of the series' darker episodes), Luann moves in with a schizophrenic millionaire who owns a pork processing company.

* The second ''WesternAnimation/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|2003}}'' 'toon had "All Hallows' Thieves", an adaptation of a comic book story of the same name, which featured baddie the King of Thieves and his attempts to use an army of goblins in order to have them steal a bunch of stuff for him.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' had three such episodes.
** "When Halloween Was Forever": A pair of ghosts free Samhain, the Spirit of Halloween, whose goal is to create a permanent Halloween night.

* ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'' has the episode "Spooky", featuring an experiment that can [[YourWorstNightmare transform into their worst fears.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' had two that come to mind. One (during the Nickelodeon run) a half hour special that had Doug going to the amusement park Funky Town to ride a scary ride and end up getting locked in it after the park shuts down for the night. Another (Disney run this time) had him (and eventually the other kids) thinking his best friend Skeeter was a vampire.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLifeAndTimesOfJuniperLee'' one had the title character trying to fix a spell that turned monsters into humans (which their idea of a Halloween costume) and having to go through a complicated barter system which at the end involve her having to wrestle (as in WWE-like wrestle) a monster to help get the last thing she needs.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' has the hour-long special ''[[PoorlyDisguisedPilot Underfist: Halloween Bash]]'', which was going to be a SpinOff (until Creator/CartoonNetwork decided not to make the series). It involves Halloween candy taking over the world and Irwin's vampire-mummy powers finally forming. General fan consensus is that it was amazing.
** Previously there was also "Billy and Mandy's Jacked Up Halloween".
* "Trick or Treat" from ''WesternAnimation/WhereOnEarthIsCarmenSandiego'': After Zack and Ivy attempt another trick on Franchise/CarmenSandiego, she pays them for their second trick attempt at arresting her.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' has one of the most plot important episodes as a Halloween episode. It involves plot advancement on who the Green Goblin is, and it is actually the set up for another episode when [[SecretIdentity Peter]] [[ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself arrives in his Spidey suit]].
* On ''WesternAnimation/HomeMovies'' the gang was on their way to a Halloween party but they all ended up at the hospital when Brendon's stepmom went into labor and Coach [=McGuirk=] had a heart attack. Not the best place for Melissa to dress like the Grim Reaper.
-->'''Coach:''' Omigod, it's Death.
-->'''Melissa:''' Coach, it's me, Melissa!
-->'''Coach:''' Omigod, it's Melissa.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicSchoolBus'' had a Halloween special that was two spookily themed episodes from the series tied together by a live-action sequence where an old caretaker told two kids terrifying stories about [[spoiler:kids learning about sound and bats.]]

** Another episode, "Nightmare on Grace Street", had a look-a-like friend that was annoying everyone with bad jokes the whole episode, then [[spoiler:went Ax Crazy and tried to kill both Cleveland and his entire family.]] Cleveland and Rallo spent the episode trying to prove they weren't scared.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' has a few.
** While not taking place during Halloween, "One Good Scare Ought to Do It" and "The Monster of Phineas-n-Ferbenstein" aired in October for Season 1.
** "That's the Spirit" and "The Curse of Candace" aired together, but only the first one is specifically Halloween themed. The second one has Candace thinking she's a vampire.
** Season 4 has "Drusselsteinoween" and "[[FaceYourFears Face Your Fear]]", the first one has Vanessa throwing a Halloween party in the castle her father inherited. The second one was about Doofenshmirtz creating a machine that cause animals to grow bigger and he tested it on a bat [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes which he is afraid of.]] Like before only the first one was on Halloween.
** Another episode is "Terrifying Tri-State Trilogy of Terror", which just like the Simpsons Tree House of Horror series was in a three shorts format. Although the shorts were not Halloween themed, they did air in October.
** "Night of the Living Pharmacists" is another one. It's about Doofenshmirtz creating an inator that turns people into zombie versions of himself.
* As part of a special series that ran throughout October 2011, Cartoon Network premiered new Halloween themed episodes as part of their Monday night scheduling block. The five shows participating were ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'', ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'', ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' and ''Magazine/{{MAD}}''. The other show, ''WesternAnimation/SecretMountainFortAwesome'', did not participate due to the sheer newness of S.M.F.A. The premieres culminated on Halloween Night (which fell on a Monday) in which each episode was shown during a marathon.
** ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' had "Terror Tales of the Park", ''à la'' [[TheSimpsons Treehouse of Horror]], consisting of a series of smaller episodes. In true Treehouse of Horror fashion, [[spoiler:none of the episode is canon]]. The first part of the episode is about a Victorian age doll named Percie that Pops had as a child who has a compulsive need to draw on people's faces, which climaxes as the doll comes to life and attempts to kill Mordecai, Rigby and Pops to fulfill his need. The second part features Muscleman and High Five Ghost as they plan to crash an RV into a bottomless pit only to find the late owners, a metal band named Skull Bash, have not left. The third part features Mordecai and Rigby trick-or-treating. Rigby eggs the Halloween Wizard's house and pays for his crime. It is revealed that the entire story was told by [[spoiler: the Halloween Wizard, disguised as Rigby the entire time]].
** The following year had "Terror Tales of the Park II" which had the same format of three separate shorts, but had a framing device to link them all together; in this case, the Park staff are on a journey to a Halloween party and tell the stories to pass the time. Mordecai's story, "Payback", involved Mordecai accidentally killing his Uncle Steve, and Uncle Steve's corpse subsequently haunts Mordecai to settle his UnfinishedBusiness. Margaret's story, "Party Bus", has Mordecai, Rigby, Margaret and Eileen take the "Party Bus" to the movies instead of their late taxi; however, as the party on the bus proceeds and the other guests start to collapse from partying too hard, they realize that [[LifeDrinker this party's]] [[RapidAging a killer]]. The final story, told by Benson, is "Wallpaper Man", an homage to Stephen King's story ''TheLawnmowerMan". Mordecai and Rigby are tasked with applying new wallpaper to the house but they are swayed by a television offer from Jan the Wallpaper Man, who will wallpaper an entire house for free. However, Jan's sinister red-and-black wallpaper turns the house's interior into a claustrophobic maze, with the other park employees trapped in the center. Mordecai and Rigby must rescue their co-workers and confront Jan, who has a dark agenda and a [[BigCreepyCrawlies monstrous secret...]]
** The ''Johnny Test'' episode is titled "Johnny Trick or Treat". Johnny accepts a dare by a mysterious card impaled on his door. In order to see a real haunted house and cash in on a large amount of candy, he must spend a night in a house and wear a tutu. He is joined by Dukey and Jillian, only to find the house is rigged with traps. They successfully complete all of the tasks, only to be eaten by a giant maggot. With Jillian in danger, [[spoiler: the master of the house, Darth Vegan, tries to save them, only to have his plans ruined. When it is revealed that there was no candy]], Johnny and the rest of the crew teleport to a party attended by Susan, Mary and Agents Black and White, where he [[spoiler: wins a candy making machine for first place in a costume contest]].
** The second ''Johnny Test'' episode called "The Johnny Who Saved Halloween". Johnny and several other kids are in a contest to collect the most candy in order to win a literal mountain of candy.
** ''Adventure Time'' parodies ''TabletopGame/{{Clue}}'' and ''Literature/AndThenThereWereNone'' in the episode "The Creeps". Members of the cast are assembled at a [[HauntedCastle mountain-top castle]]. Each of the characters gains an alias as part of the invitation:
*** Finn as Prince Hotbod
*** Jake as Randy Butternubs
*** Princess Bubblegum as Lady Quietbottom
*** BMO as Professor Pence
*** Lumpy Space Princess as Duchess Gummybuns
*** Cinnamon Bun as [[AtrociousAlias Guy Farting]].
** The costume party goes awry as characters are killed off and the party turns into a mystery when it is revealed that a ghost has possessed one of them and intends to murder them. [[spoiler:Jake and Lady Rainicorn reveal that they are the ghost and that none of the character were killed. Finn asks how Jake got the house to come to life. [[SequelHook Jake doesn't know what Finn is talking about and the crew leaves the castle.]] Finn keeps the memory in "his vault". The ghost that appears becomes a ''very'' important ChekhovsGunman later.]]
** A second ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' Halloween special, "From Bad to Worse", aired a week later. The episode deals with a ZombieApocalypse and is a continuation of the premiere "Slumber Party Panic". Finn, Jake, Rainicorn and LSP are seen running through the Candy Kingdom avoiding the now zombified denizens. After making it to the castle, Princess Bubblegum explains the infection is her and Cinnamon Bun's fault. Princess Bubblegum says she will make the antidote again but before she can, she is bitten by a zombie. Before being changed, she tells Finn to [[YouWillKnowWhatToDo let science do the work]] to create the formula again. It is up to the four to create the formula. In an EurekaMoment, Finn realizes that PB's last words meant for them to use [[spoiler:Science, the lab rat. [[AmplifiedAnimalAptitude The lab rat creates the formula]] and Finn tests in on Jake who returns to normal. Unfortunately, the effects are reversed after Jake is bitten again. Out of ideas, Finn covers himself in the antidote and [[HeroicSacrifice flings himself into the fray]] and is chewed by the zombies]]. The last scene shows the Candy Kingdom [[spoiler: fully cured, [[UnexplainedRecovery Finn in a state of well-being]] and Princess Bubblegum awarding Science with a medal for heroic bravery]].
** ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' has the episode simply titled ''"Halloween"''. Carrie the ghost helps get Gumball and Darwin into a ghosts-only Halloween party using ghost potion. However, an overdose of the potion turns Gumball and Darwin completely into ghosts, triggering a CosmicDeadline to get them back into their bodies or else they'll be dragged into the underworld. To make matters worse, [[spoiler:Anais also drinks the potion and Gumball must save her as well]].
** ''WesternAnimation/{{MAD}}'' had the episode "Kitchen Nightmares Before Christmas/How I Met Your Mummy". Within the episode were ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' and ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' references, as the title implies. Other references included [[Franchise/{{Scream}} ScreamX20]], [[ScoobyDoo Scooby Doo: Ruining Halloween Since 1969]], and ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales [[Series/TalesFromTheCrypt from the Crypt]]''.
** While not necessarily Halloween material, some episodes that premiered did contain horror elements.
*** ''Regular Show'' "Camping Can Be Fun"
*** ''The Amazing World of Gumball'' "The Poltergeist"
* ''WesternAnimation/KickButtowski'' had the [[IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming predictably named]] "Kick Or Treat", where Kick accepts a challenge from Kendall to go trick-treating at the scary OldDarkHouse across the street. Turns out the house is [[spoiler: owned by a nice old lady who loves Halloween so much that she went completely overboard with the special effects.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** There's "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E4LunaEclipsed Luna Eclipsed]]" where the ponies celebrate the day as [[YouMeanXMas "Nightmare Night"]] and a certain literal [[EnsembleDarkhorse/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Ensemble Darkhorse]] shows up, being determined to change her frightening public image she made [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E1MareInTheMoon back in]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E2ElementsOfHarmony the past]]. At first, it wasn't really working out all that well for Princess Luna, [[spoiler: and it goes to the point where she ends up decreeing the cancellation of Nightmare Night forever]]! However, [[spoiler: Luna eventually learns that the young ponies actually ''like'' being scared by her, and she declares that Nightmare Night's back on]].
** The Season 5 episode, [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E21ScareMaster "Scare Master"]], Fluttershy steps out of her cottage on Nightmare Night and tries to celebrate the holiday with the other Mane Five. It's very awkward at first, until she manages to pull off the scare of a lifetime on them, which is where we learn why Fluttershy doesn't traditionally celebrate Nightmare Night, she hates seeing her friends scared and frightened, even if it is just for laughs.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'' episode "Scared Of You" is this in all but name.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' had "W is for Witch", in which the girls were able to [[ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself get away using their Guardian identities in public]] in order to capture Nerissa. However, thanks to the series' serial storyline, when Toon Disney [[ExecutiveMeddling elected to air this during a Halloween-themed marathon]], it was shown ''earlier'' than it was supposed to be, effectively spoiling viewers to a number of future plot points.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' did one of these where Stan tried to outdo his neighbor's haunted house. His solution? Bring in caged serial killers. [[spoiler:And then Roger frees them...]]
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' only has one, oddly. It was from season 9, where Chris and Meg went to a party, Stewie and Brian dealt with a bully that stole Stewie's candy and Quagmire getting revenge for a prank by Peter and Joe. [[spoiler:Lois becomes the bully for the bullies and actually scares Stewie a bit, Quagmire pretends to be possessed by a Japanese UsefulNotes/WorldWarII pilot, and ''[[SurpriseIncest Meg and Chris accidentally make out with each other]]''.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ScaredySquirrel'' make fun of the holiday and called it Halloweekend, making it a ParodyEpisode. Scaredy proves to a CampGay bird (that is, his boss) that he can scare people. But his boss' mom yelled at Scaredy.
* The 2010 version of ''[[WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies2010 Pound Puppies]]'' had "A Nightmare on Pound Street". It wasn't a Halloween Episode in the sense of the "[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Treehouse of Horror]]", but it was set on Halloween, and the hopeful adoptee was a "creepy-looking" puppy named [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy]].
* ''WesternAnimation/DangerMouse'' had "The Good, the Bad and the Motionless", which took place on Halloween, as DM tells Colonel K that Penfold is carving up a swede.
-->'''Colonel K:''' Good heavens, DM. I didn't know he could play tennis!
-->'''D.M.:''' Tennis? Oh, no. Not Bjørn Borg, sir. Not that sort of swede. It's the vegetable kind.
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}'' cartoon's Halloween episode, "Laugh Of The Party," had B.J. livening up Lydia's Halloween party with Party People In A Can. They're all Neitherworld denizens, so the party was rather unorthodox, even for Halloween. A year later, the episode "Bewitched, Bothered and Beetlejuiced" had Lydia dressed as a witch for Halloween, only for her cat Percy to get catnapped by a soiree of witches.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' had "The Terrifying Tales of Recess", which was similar in structure to "WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror" (but more G-rated), possibly because a good amount of the ''Recess'' staff worked on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
** The TV-movie "Taking The Fifth Grade" had its third segment taking place on Halloween where Spinelli decides she's too old for Halloween traditions and nearly ruins it for her friends.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheWeekenders'' has Tino's friends refuse to go trick-or-treating with him so he comes up with an elaborate prank to scare them on Halloween anyway.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries'' there was a similar plot to the live action's season 2 episode, with Sabrina and Gem competing to have better Halloween parties and Sabrina ends up summoning real ghouls from the Netherworld to help her out.
* ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'' had Pepper Ann and Milo get ready for trick-or-treating, only for Pepper Ann to consider the two of them too old after all of their classmates tell her that they don't plan to trick-or-treat. [[spoiler:Pepper Ann and Milo go despite this, and an ending montage reveals that their classmates secretly joined in.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': While Halloween doesn't exist, "[[Recap/StevenUniverseS1E41HorrorClub Horror Club]]" has all the elements of a typical Halloween episode. Fall, blowing leaves, cooler weather, scarecrows, costumes, flashlight under the chin, and a haunted lighthouse. WordOfGod has also confirmed that it's a Halloween special.
* The fact that ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' takes place over a single summer doesn't stop it from having a HalloweenEpisode. "Summerween" explores [[YouMeanXmas Summerween]], a second Halloween in the summer because Gravity Falls loves the holiday that much. Soos tells the legend of the Summerween Trickster, a phantom who kills those who do not accept the holiday. Dipper, wanting to attend a party instead of trick-or-treat, attracts the Trickster who holds the lives of he and his friends in the balance in exchange for five hundred pieces of candy. [[NightmareFuel/GravityFalls Knock knock, indeed]].
* "WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs Halloween Special" was really a regular Saturday-morning cartoon episode, and it was mostly about celebrating Jokey's birthday, though one of the subplots is that Hogatha the witch wants to celebrate Halloween by scaring little children, only for her holiday to be ruined by one of Gargamel's spells. There's also "Monster Smurfs", where the Smurfs celebrated a similar holiday called Spook-A-Smurf Eve.
** ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfsTheLegendOfSmurfyHollow'' is this for ''Film/TheSmurfs'' film series.
* The sixth episode of ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures''' fourth season, "Fright Fight Night" is set on Halloween, dealing with Paco being possessed by one of the [[PlotCoupons Oni masks]] and the heroes having to get it off before [[BigBad Tarakudo]] is able to corrupt him.
* ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'''s Halloween Episode had Chuckie freaking out over the possibility that Tommy might have a crush on Kimi and so running off on his own on Halloween when there's dangerous teenage gangs about.
** The show also had two other horror-themed episodes that would have fit this trope, only they weren't set on Halloween. "Curse of Reptar" was an AffectionateParody of ''Poltergeist'' and "Interview With a Campfire" had the kids get lost in a colonial mine that was said to be haunted.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'''s Season 2 episode "The Honking", a parody of werewolf movies where after spending a night at his late uncle's haunted castle, Bender is transformed into a werecar that runs over people every night. Season 6's "Ghost in the Machines" and Season 7's "Murder on the Planet Express" could also be considered as examples. The former sees Bender become a robot ghost and begin to haunt Fry by possessing machinery while the latter is a parody of ''Film/TheThing1982'' and ''Film/{{Alien}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/ElTigre'' episode "The Grave Escape"; Taking place on ''Dia De Los Muertos'', Manny feels he's getting too old for the holiday (Despite his father and Grandpapi being all for it) when Sartana of the Dead attacks with a monster formed from Miracle City's unremembered dead("Sartana of the Dead!?" Cries Rodolpho, "Attacking on the Day of the Dead!? Actually, that makes sense."). Manny and Frida end up getting sent down to the Land of the Dead, where they recruit Riveras from the past to get back to the surface in order to defeat Sartana, including the original [[LegacyCharacter El Tigre]], which does prove that (For Manny) indecision ''does'' run in the family.
* Despite being predated by 4 months in the US and one month in Canada, the ''WesternAnimation/{{Grojband}}'' episode "Dance of the Dead" takes place during Halloween night.
* ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' - one episode has the kids trick-or-treating without the parents for the first time. They take the ferry to the greener pastures of the island where the rich families live. Another episode has them miss Halloween altogether when they get stuck in their alleyway cardboard box fort at the mercy of a creepy classmate of Louise's. Still another has Tina falling for a ghost discovered in the Belchers' basement.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBros'' has the "A Very Venture Halloween" special. Interesting in that it is a SynchronousEpisodes with the Season 5 premiere "What Color is Your Cleansuit?", taking place entirely with the first "commercial break" of that episode. It also contains one of the biggest plot revelations in the series so far despite being a "special" episode, namely that [[spoiler: Dean finds out that he and Hank are clones]].
* The ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "Broomstick Bunny" has Witch Hazel concerned about her appearance, wanting to stay the ugliest witch of all ("I'm so afraid of growing pretty as I get older!") then encounters WesternAnimation/BugsBunny, trick-or-treating in an ugly witch costume.
** "A-Haunting We Will Go" has WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck's nephew encountering Witch Hazel while trick-or-treating in the exact same costume Bugs used. (The rest of the cartoon has Daffy dealing with WesternAnimation/SpeedyGonzales, who Witch Hazel has turned into her exact double so he can fill in for her while she takes a vacation.)
** "Corn on the Cop" is also set on Halloween, and has Daffy and [[WesternAnimation/PorkyPig Porky]] as police officers trying to apprehend a bank robber who looks just like Granny.
* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' released at least two Halloween specials, titled "Bugs Bunny's Halloween Hijinks", and "Bugs Bunny's Howl-Oween Special".
* ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall'' is an odd example, because depending on how you look at it, either [[Recap/OverTheGardenWallChapter9IntoTheUnknown the ninth episode]] or [[spoiler:the whole miniseries]] takes place on Halloween, due to [[spoiler:[[YearInsideHourOutside no time passing in our world]] while Wirt and Greg are in the Unknown]].
* The ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' episode "October 31st".
* In "Every Poe Has A Silver Lining", a ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'' episode, the squad visits Edgar Allan Poe the day before Halloween and attempt to fix him of his TastesLikeDiabetes attitude. When Poe finally becomes the moody, dark-hearted writer the world knows him to be he walks outside to a rainy Halloween night and scares some trick-or-treaters.
* ''{{WesternAnimation/Arthur}}'' has the episode "Hic or Treat" which is set on Halloween and involves a plot of DW having a case of hiccups she can't get rid of until Arthur scares her. While it isn't strictly set on Halloween, "The Fright Stuff" involves a costume party, and a ghost character.
* The PBS adaptation of ''Literature/BerenstainBears'' has an episode called Trick or Treat.
* The PBS animated adaptation of ''Literature/CliffordTheBigRedDog'' has the episode "Boo!" all about Jetta bragging about how brave she is. After the whole town is spooked by a ghost movie, Jetta learns that everyone has fears but it is OK.
* The 2000 series of ''{{Literature/Madeline}}'' called the New Adventures of Madeline had a Halloween episode where the girls visit America and learn about Halloween, with a subplot of a mysterious lost earring.
* The TV series adaptation of ''Literature/CuriousGeorge'' has the one-hour special ''A Halloween Boo Fest'' involving George trying to create the perfect Halloween costume and learning the story of the haunted scarecrow named No-Noggin.
* ''WesternAnimation/MaxAndRuby'' has at least ''three'' Halloween Episodes.
* ''WesternAnimation/JuliusJr'' has the season 1 episode ''Dressed for Spook-cess'', where Worry Bear and Ping muct co-operate to match their costumes before they go trick-or-treating.
* On ''WesternAnimation/EllaTheElephant'', "Frankie's Perfect Pumpkin" has the kids in costumes and trick-or-treating, though most of the story is actually spent on hunting for Frankie's lost pumpkin.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheProudFamily'' has "A Hero For Halloween" - as the title suggests, it doubles as a SuperheroEpisode.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheCatInTheHatKnowsALotAboutThat'' has ''The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Halloween'', a nearly hour-long special featuring the group journeying so that Sally and Nick can find the perfect Halloween costumes.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' had "Eye of the Beholder", in which Goliath and Elisa are forced to team up with Xanatos to save the life of Xanatos' fiancee Fox after a cursed artifact turns her into a monster. We also get to see Goliath, Elisa, and the other Manhattan Clan gargoyles attend a Halloween party where Elisa goes dressed as [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Belle]].
* Disney XD's WesternAnimation/MarvelUniverse block has had several, usually involving Doctor Strange, Blade, and/or Dormammu showing up.
** ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' had three: the first was a one-hour special that premiered on the Disney Channel rather than Disney XD and sees Spider-Man team up with Blade and several other Marvel Monsters (named the "Howling Commandos") to stop Dracula after he puts Spidey's team under mind control and has them recover an artifact that would make him invulnerable to sunlight. The second is a crossover with ''Series/{{Jessie}}'' where Spidey and Jessie Prescott are stuck in a museum on Halloween night while the latter accidentally resurrects Morrigane Le Fey. The third has Spidey, Doctor Strange, and Scott Lang team against Baron Mordo when he casts a spell to make all the trick-or-treaters [[BecomingTheCostume become what they're dressed up as]] to feed off the negative energy from the spell and make himself stronger.
** ''WesternAnimation/HulkAndTheAgentsOfSMASH'' also had a Halloween team-up with the Howling Commandos, where the two groups must put aside their differences to prevent Dormammu from enslaving all of humanity.
** ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'' had its episode featured Hulk, Iron Man, and Thor work with Strange to recover the Eye of Agamotto when its stolen by Dormammu.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' has the episode "The Price of Admission" all about a scary movie and Lincoln's bad nightmares induced from watching it against his parents' wishes.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': In "Hungry Larry", Marco's dad is bummed because no one finds his haunted house scary, so Star tries summoning a real monster named Hungry Larry to haunt the Diaz house and scare trick-or-treaters. [[GoneHorriblyRight It works all too well]] when [[spoiler: the kids, Janna, Marco, Mrs. Diaz, and even Star are SwallowedWhole by Hungry Larry and Mr. Diaz has to save them.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBeaks'': The first season had a TwoShorts-styled one, in which the first segment sees Harvey and his friends visit a corn maze that proves much scarier than it seems, while the second was about the cast telling pass-around scary story. In the second season, it was a half-hour episode parodying [[YetAnotherChristmasCarol A Christmas Carol]]. Both episodes also feature a goblin-like creature named the Blargus, who is Littlebark Grove's spirit of Halloween (he only appears in the first season episode's second segment though).
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': The episode "Let's Play Scaredy Cat", where [[TheDitz Stumpy]] raises the dead and causes a zombie apocalypse, forcing Mr. Cat to fight off all the zombies [[spoiler: by himself after Kaeloo and Quack Quack also get turned into zombies.]]
* On ''WesternAnimation/CreativeGalaxy'', "Arty's Boo-tastic Halloween" is a double story-length special in which Arty goes out trick-or-treating in the Creative Galaxy with his friends, visits a number of planets, and helps out along the way.
* Interestingly, ''WesternAnimation/LittleBear'' has an episode that appears to take place on Halloween, but nobody refers to it as such. Instead, the holiday is known as "Goblin Night", when goblins are said to play tricks on people. In the episode, Little Bear and his friends dress up (Mitzi is even wearing a goblin costume), try to scare each other and eat corn and pumpkin seeds in front of a campfire.
* The 1992 ''WesternAnimation/TheAddamsFamily'' animated series had a Halloween episode called "Puttergeist", which had Wednesday and Pugsley investigate the legend of a golfer ghost known as the Puttergeist.
