I did the vomiting pumpkin one year with the sign next to it saying "Too much candy for me."

It was a hit.

5 Indispensable Halloween Specials

Submitted for your perusal are these five classic examples of old school animated specials. Before The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror changed the game, they were all we had. And we loved them in spite of their unbridled cheesiness.


Garfield's Halloween Adventure: Before Jim Davis's lethargic feline had his own Saturday morning cartoon, he graced the small screen in a series of primetime specials including this 1985 fright-fest. Garfield's Halloween Adventure finds Garfield and Odie discovering a mansion haunted by ghostly pirates searching for a long-buried treasure. While certainly spookier than your typical Scooby Doo villain, they ain't exactly Captain Barbossa. The aged cabin boy who relates the tale of their blood oath, on the other hand, is moderately terrifying.

Disney's Halloween Treat: Originally aired as a part of The Wonderful World of Disney anthology, Disney's Halloween Treat is essentially a highlight reel of Disney's most sinister and supernatural moments, as well as a veritable love letter to the villains of yore. And while Captain Hook and Cruella certainly hold their own, the show is handily stolen by the inclusion of the epically animated Night on Bald Mountain sequence from Fantasia and the comically dire Headless Horsemen versus Ichabod Crane sequence cribbed from The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad.

Bugs Bunny's Howl-oween Special: This Looney Tunes special from 1978 similarly collects a number of classic clips with a shared focus on supernatural slapstick. These toons are tied together by vignettes featuring the character Witch Hazel, complete with her trademark flying hairpins. Several of this special's finer moments (including Bugs's dual with Count Blood Count) are also included in the Daffy Duck's Quackbusters compilation.

The Halloween Tree: While based on the 1972 novel of the same name, this animated special didn't appear until the early nineties. It is of particular note due to its geeky pedigree, as the cartoon features the voices of acclaimed author Ray Bradbury, the writer of the book, as narrator and Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Moundshroud. Therein the sinister Moundshroud takes a group of neighborhood friends on a dazzling adventure through time to uncover the origins and influences of Halloween, while the life of one of their own hangs in the balance.

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown: And, of course, the pièce de résistance is this 1966 Peanuts masterwork. While the main focus of this special is Linus's all-night stakeout of the sincerest of pumpkin patches and Snoopy's battle with the Red Baron – both of which fantasies, you'll remember, ultimately prove fruitless – it is also ably characterized by the charming dialog of its tertiary the-gang-goes-trick-or-treating subplot, most obviously through Charlie Brown's own "I got a rock." It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is the Velvet Underground of Halloween specials; while not without its flaws, it rocketed from the mid-sixties to influence practically all those that came after.

So, who actually holds the world record?

Zombie world record broken in Nottingham
A new world record for the largest gathering of zombies has been set in Nottingham.
By Urmee Khan
Last Updated: 11:53PM GMT 31 Oct 2008

Thousands of zombies, covered in fake blood and face paint, took to the streets for the Halloween event.

The record was broken when 1,227 people dressed as zombies gathered in the Old Market Square.

They then performed a choreographed zombie dance to Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'.

Although the dancing began at 5pm but it took officials from Guinness World Records half-an-hour to zerify the numbers.

The previous record was set in the US, when 1,124 people attended Monroeville Mall, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in November last year.

The event in Notttingham was part of the GameCity festival.

Iain Simons, festival director, said: "We were staggered by the number of Zombies that turned up to help us beat the attempt. Everyone got into the spirit of the afternoon and the Thriller dance was incredible."

"As any self-respecting zombie knows, it's very important that they come together and dance the Michael Jackson Thriller dance because that's what zombies do when they congregate" he added.

This year is the 25th anniversary of the Thriller video. The 14-minute film was first broadcast in December 1983 and it has become one of the most famous music videos in the world.

Margaret Robinson, who helped arrange the event, said: "It has been fantastic, we have had a huge turnout, far better than we expected, you can't move for dancing zombies.

"We are all zombies tonight, we are all undead, I am covered in blood - very happy."

In March the city also set a record for the most Robin Hoods when 1,119 costumed people gathered at the castle.
