* ''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.

Probably the most well known of these are ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' "TreehouseOfHorror" episodes, but most American kids' and genre shows have them. While neither [[SantaClausmas Samhain nor All Saints Eve]] is ever mentioned, the similarly themed (but more upbeat) Dia de los Muertos (Nov 1-2) might be if the characters are on a visit to Mexico.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''' annual "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 will bring ''two'' Halloween Episodes, the usual "Treehouse of Horror" and "Halloween of Horror", a canon episode that takes place in Springfield on Halloween.

* 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.

* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', Halloween is a holiday for the supernatural, but that doesn't make it any easier for the Scoobies.

* 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.

* Every year, the main characters from ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' (plus others, such as Marshie, Stinkoman, or The Goblin) get dressed up in costumes and do stuff. They are often dressed up as some obscure pop culture icon from the '70s, 80's, or 90's, although we will occasionally be relieved of guessing too hard with some costumes such as Tingle, HelloKitty, ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}'', [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Zoidberg]], or [[StreetFighter M. Bison]]. The events are different each year, such as one memorable Halloween where you got to give the characters candy in an interactive game. There are also a few traditions, such as an appearance from The Goblin, Coach Z going as a hip-hop artist, the "Witch's Brew" catchphrase, or Marzipan cross-dressing (Lampshaded when Homestar said that Marzipan's cross-dressing was starting to freak him out).
** Can't forget this one: Always, ''always'' click near the Poopsmith to see the easter egg with Homsar.

** The 2003 cartoon "3 Times Halloween Funjob" had [[FourLinesAllWaiting a series of separate, simultaneous plots that all come together at the end]]: Marzipan and Strong Sad host a seance to contact the ghost of a dead houseplant, Strong Bad and his posse throw eggs and toilet paper at places and people (with the King of Town desperately trying to invite himself along), while Homestar goes trick-or-treating with Pom Pom, Bubs, and Coach Z.
** In the 2004 cartoon "Halloween Fairstival", Strong Bad tries to help the Cheat cure a case of the hiccups at the eponymous Halloween event, which features Coach Z's "haunted locker room", Bubs' [[StockShticks cliche-ridden comedy act]], and Marzipan's "Chorus of Autumnal Vegetables".

** 2008: Another cold opening shows the Evil Gamer plotting another HostileShowTakeover from within his "[[SuperVillainLair Castle of Evil]]", coming up with a plan to kill the Irate Gamer with ''MonsterParty''. The Irate Gamer himself, meanwhile, is not invited to the biggest Halloween party in town, leaving him stuck at home getting unwanted visitors. He decides to vent his frustration by reviewing bad games, and finds that a ''Monster Party'' cartridge has mysteriously appeared on his occult shelf. While he reviews the game, characters from previous episodes show up, and the Irate Gamer gets more unwanted visitors. Eventually, the Irate Gamer beats the game, unleashing the devil. The devil wants to take over the world, but gets distracted by a {{Voltron}} figure while trying to kill the IG, and both of them go to drink apple juice at a bar, despite protests from the Evil Gamer.
