How many of these spooky classics do you know?

1.  This animated comedy goes all-out on Halloween every year with its popular “Treehouse of Horror” series.

2.  It makes sense that this series about a witch would have memorable Halloween episodes.  Probably the best-remembered featured an adventure filmed on location in Salem, Massachusetts, home of the witch trials.

3.  A brave and curious little animated girl has to help a little monster find his way home before midnight.

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.

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.
