In the world of TV series, it's not uncommon to come across episodes that don't seem to directly relate to the main plot, known as specials. These specials can deal into various topics, but often, they are related to highly celebrated holidays loved by the show's directors. There are Christmas Specials, 4th of July Specials (American Independence Day), and, of course, Halloween Specials.
In Halloween Specials, fans have the opportunity to see their favorite characters in themed costumes, often accompanied by comedic scenes that you wouldn't typically catch in the main storyline. Essentially, these episodes are fillers, meaning they usually have nothing to do with the plot and are inserted when the writers run out of ideas on how to carry on the series. However, despite the fan service and filler nature, they have their charm and never fail to captivate viewers each year.

So in this article, I've decided to gather what, in my opinion, are the best Halloween Specials!
