6.  Zoinks!  This funny-spooky animated series had a number of Halloween episodes, including one featuring KISS.

7.  The Halloween episode of this musical series featured songs from “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”

8. Sisters Laura and Mary try to play some Halloween pranks but instead get spooked themselves in this series based on popular children’s books about 19th century settlers.

9. Liza Minnelli guest stars as the mother of a murdered child in a Halloween episode of this crime drama.

10. The teen star of this series and his cousin want to go to a Halloween party and try to top each other to win dates.
