I love Halloween episodes, especially the animated shows like The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror’s. My list obviously includes one of them, there’s so many out there, it’s hard to choose a favourite. My list includes another episode that I’m sure you might have seen as a kid. Enjoy reading and watching!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Fear, Itself
I had trouble choosing a Halloween episode from Buffy, I only wanted to pick one for this list, and I feel that this one is my favourite for a few different reasons. Willow and Oz’s costume as Joan of Arc and her relationship with God was adorable. The gang has to travel through a real haunted house to find the party, and defeat a demon that turns out to be miniature. It’s fun to see them do traditional Halloween things, like carving pumpkins, eating candy and going to a haunted house. I think this was the episode we find out Anya has a fear of bunnies, too!
The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror V:
This is a classic Halloween episode, I watch it almost every year. This one features The Shinning, where the Simpson family has to stay in a haunted house for Mr. Burns that makes Homer go crazy. The other stories include time travel and the school starts cooking children… and serving them for lunch. It ends with the family getting turned inside out and doing a dance, a little disturbing, so here’s the clip!
Goosebumps: The Haunted Mask
Who didn’t watch Goosebumps when they were a kid? I still haven’t seen the movie yet, I want to see it so bad! I hope it features the ‘haunted mask’ in any way, this episode really freaked me out when I was a kid. This and the ‘alien sponge’ thing, Eeek. Who wouldn’t be scared of your freaky Halloween mask never been able to come off turning you into a monster! (Click image for source)
The Office: Business School
The pranks on The Office are the best. A prank that Jim is turning into a vampire for Halloween was pretty funny, even more so after learning Joss Whedon directed this episode. This clip pretty much sums up the episode itself.
Bob’s Burgers: Hauntening
This episode was the newest episode of Bob’s Burgers and I was pretty impressed by it. It has that randomness that Bob’s Burgers has while following a story that makes it awesome. The plot is pretty much the family tries to give Louise something she’s never experienced before for Halloween, being scared. Unlike Teddy, who is scared by a dancing witch, so funny.
Here’s a video if the ‘Boyz 4 Now’ – I Love U So Much (It’s Scary) that they show at the end of the episode.
