OWOOOOOHA! It's real scary, keeds!
Halloween has really come into its own as a holiday in Toobworld over the last twenty years. And I think the thanks for that go more to 'Roseanne' than to 'It's A Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown'. All of the other shows took their cue from the Conners' Halloween spectaculars when they realized there was comedy gold in them thar costume ideas for a big party scene. (See "Slutty Pumpkin" from the first season of 'How I Met Your Mother' - Oops! Too late! It aired last night!)
My personal favorite Halloween episode from a TV series?
"Take Me To Your Louden" from 'Newhart':
"Michael seeks to create an Orson Welles-style panic when he programs The War of the Worlds on Halloween night. Dick desperately tries to control the panicked guests at the inn's costume party."
As for my sitcom life, I have to work at the hotel tonight. I figure I'll wear the same costume I do every year. My TV Land cap, my NBC logo baseball jacket, my Late Night with David Letterman sweatshirt, and my CBS backpack.
I go out as a rerun......
