A Collection Of Halloween TV Specials

Who can concentrate with Halloween (the movie) releasing this week and Halloween (the holiday) just two weeks after that? Nobody, that’s who! It’s just time to goof off and watch some creepy comedy. Me gusta el stupido.

The Scooby Doo Project 1999

Somebody dug this up from the Cartoon Network archives and plastered it on YouTube. It’s the Scooby Doo gang doing a parody of The Blair Witch Project, which it turns out is pronounced “air witch” with the “BL” silent because there’s no witch.

Say what you will about the Scooby Doo gang, they’re the only four young people and a dog we’ve seen go into and out of so many haunted houses without losing any skin, which is more than we can say for most of the characters in horror movies.

Vincent Price's Once Upon a Midnight Scary (1979)

Next we have the Prince of Horror himself, the much-missed Vincent Price, presenting an anthology of three horror tales.

Those tales include The Ghost Belonged To Me, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and holy wolfman nards, The House With a Clock in its Walls! Wait, we just had this movie, stop feeding us crazy pills!

Elvira Macabre TV 1986 Halloween Special

So here’s the Queen of Halloween Elvira be-bopping her way through a TV special. She turned out a lot of these over the years, so search around, you’re bound to find more.

Sure, you remember that, but how about that time Vincent Price and Elvira appeared on the Tonight Show together?

Tragically, the substitute host had to spend the whole time talking about her hefty chest and awkwardly playing peekaboo with Cassandra Peterson’s photo because he didn’t even know Elvira was in character. Be nice if they could have cut the host out of it and then these two titans of horror entertainment could have had a conversation with, you know, each other.

Hey, but she cites Plan 9 as her faves. Sigh, ?Elvira?!

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

Finally, what Halloween is complete without this heartwarming holiday classic, which first aired in 1966?

Oops, we’re so sorry. Apparently we pooped up and found Bring Me the Head of Charlie Brown by Jim Reardon, who would go on to direct The Simpsons. Please excuse our technical difficulties. Anyway, this is more what we have in mind for a Peanuts Halloween special around here.

Two more days till Michael, two more days till Michael...
