What is your choice for the best Halloween TV episode of all time? Be specific and give some details why it is so great.
I mean The Simpsons win this hands down to the point it is unfair. They have 26 options of episodes since Treehouse of Horror was started in the 2nd season. The fifth installment is not only my favorite Halloween episode, it’s my favorite Simpsons episode of all time. The Shining spoof, the time travel segment, and Nightmare Cafeteria are three brilliant segments plus that great finale song!
I was going to cite the same episode of The Simpsons! It’s so sharply written and unlike most recent Treehouses manages to convey a full story in 3 seven to eight minute segments will full beginning, middle and ends. Another one I’m partial to is the Roseanne from season 5 where Roseanne doesn’t want to celebrate because Becky isn’t there and it ends up being a Christmas Carol takeoff. Between some awesome sight gags and some very sharp dialogue (particularly the scene at the lodge where she’s watching friends and family badmouth her Halloween tricks) it’s a personal favorite of mine.
