Disney's Trick or Treat - 1952 Staring Donald Duck, and his nephews Huey, Duey, & Luey
Disney's Lonesome Ghosts - 1937, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, & Goofy as the original ghost hunters
Disney's Halloween Treat - 1982, A collection of Disney's spookiest cartoon moments, hosted by a talking pumpkin
The Pumpkin that Couldn't Smile - 1979, Starring Raggedy Ann & Andy, and a manic depressive pumpkin (don't worry, it has a happy ending, ha)
The Halloween that Almost Wasn't - A 1979 ABC special with Judd Hirsch as Dracula, super hokey & awesome, also sold under the title "The Night Dracula Saved the World"
Disney's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow - The 1949 Classic, narrated by Bing Crosby (swoon!)
Witch's Night Out - A Trippy 1978 cartoon originally aired on Canadian TV, with colorful, boobalicious characters with adjective names
Halloween is Grinch Night - 1977, This one freaked me out as a kid, but I always watched it anyway
Disney's Haunted Halloween - 1984, An educational cartoon also hosted by a talking pumpkin & Goofy on the history of Halloween. Of course, Disney Halloween cartoons are highlighted too
Disney/Silly Symphony's The Skeleton Dance - The 1929 graveyard classic
The Worst Witch - 1986, staring Fairuza Balk (before The Craft ha) & Tim Curry in one of his best lyrical performances, "Anything Can Happen on Halloween". This one is quintessentially 80s the the best/worst way, including the songs. This was what we loved before Harry Potter.
Disney's Mr. Boogedy - 1986, This is a rare one, a creepy tale with John Astin (the original Gomez Addams) of a family that moves to Lucifer Falls. I miss the days when Disney had a dark side... Also included in this link is the sequel, Bride of Boogedy. You'll recognize Kristy Swanson, pre-Buffy.
I tried to find "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" (1966), but the full movie is no where to be found on YouTube. I have it on my computer in its entire, director's cut form. So, here instead is my favorite part of the show, Sally's Rant
SPOILER ALERT: Here is the opening for this years Treehouse of Horror (by Guillermo del Toro) airing on Fox this Sunday
