    i love halloween. one of my fav things about this time are all the halloween specials.

    so what are some of your favorite episodes of halloween specials. please keep this thread dedicated to TV, after this thread loses steam we can do movies and other media. special thumbs up if you can tell us what time and network a special is playing on. also big props if they are on netflix and you can tell us

    Home Improvement - all of them
    Home improvement always had good halloween specials. the premise of the show and tim allens humor made it a perfect match for halloween hi-jinx. its also really fun to see tim allen get his comeuppance and get scared.

    boy meets world - and then there was shawn. season 5 episode 17
    this is one the best boy meets world episodes of the later seaons. an excellent parody of scream and i know what you did last summer. even features a prime jennifer love hewitt. beyond the excellent comedy, the episode features a great character arc and theme absent from many of the later episodes of boy meets world... and something that is rare in horror parodies.

    roseanne - all of them
    usually they run halloween marathons of roseanne around this time. most of them are quality

    even stevens - a very scary story . season 2 episode 13.
    this one features one of the funniest costumes i ever seen. it starts with louis stevens as a penguin jockey for halloween. i tried to remake this epic costume for halloween once. the episode is your typical zombie story set in the even stevens world.

    the office - halloween. season 2 episode 5
    the first three seasons of the office were excellent then it quickly went to crap. this is one of those good episodes. michael has a ridiculous funny costume of course and is faced with firing someone from the office. but the real magic is the subtle interactions between jim and pam in this episode. when jim finds a job else where and pam actually suggests he should apply for it.

    doug - dougs halloween adventure . season 4 episode 4.

    freaks and geeks - tricks and treats. season 1 episode 3.

    South park - the early halloween episodes of South park are some of my favorite sp episodes

    Girl meets world recently had a cute halloween episode. I am sure disney will be replaying it many times in the next few weeks.

    some other great series to watch (not halloween related episodes but overall good for the mood)

    are you afraid of the dark

    "Haunted History of Halloween" narrated by Harry Smith. I could (and do) watch it on loop.

    South Park's are all classics.

    Gotta love the haunted Blockbuster Video from last year.

    Dawson creek (I'm serious, it had a good first season).
    I think it was a Friday the 13th special, but same thing.

    not the same thing, but bravo used to show a top 100 scary movie moments countdown every halloween. it was one of my favorite things to ever be on tv.

    can't even remember the lame tv show specials. i think Family Matters had one with a ventriloquist dummy that looked like Urkle. I'm not saying it was good.

    I check out the Peanuts Gang Halloween special every year. I seem to remember Garfield having a good one.

    It's cool Inigo, I remember that too and it was pretty good. Rosanne has been mentioned but the scene where she's locked in the shed or something and Dan is slowly walking towards it with a chainsaw (from memory), fucken classic.

    HAHA Yea! That show (Rosanne) is criminally underrated.
