Almost every TV series finds the time to showcase all of the major holidays at least once during their run, but over the decades, TV generally shows out for Halloween like no other. The best drama series' use the horror and fear-themed day to bring characters' innate doubts and fears to the surface, while the best sitcoms go balls out with costumed mischief and assorted hijinks in their Halloween episodes.

With the season of tricks and treats upon us, Complex collected the best of both to create a definitive list of the best of the best, specifically those episodes that directly deal with the actual holiday. So if you don't see insert-popular-spooky-drama, it's because, while scary on a weekly basis, it never actually celebrated All Hallow's Eve proper. Grab a bag of candy and settle in for the night to watch The Best Halloween Themed TV Episodes.
