You can't go wrong with the classic Andy Griffith 'Haunted House' episode, but my second-place seasonal favorite is 'The Ghost of A. Chantz' (The Dick Van Dyke Show). Spooky - and hilarious!
Too bad Wagon Train, Heat of the Night and Matlock didn't have Halloween episodes. They're among my favorite shows ... even today ... and what's better, they're not on in the middle of the night.
My favorite Halloween episode is a Route 66 episode entitled "Lizard's Leg and Owlet's Wing." I watched it again on DVD last night, exactly 56 years to the day when it originally aired. The guest stars were Lon Chaney, Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre. During the story Lon Chaney dressed up as The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Mummy and of course the Wolf Man. Boris Karloff dressed up in the Frankenstein's Monster makeup for the last time. Peter Lorre was just Peter Lorre no matter what he dressed up as. The plot concerned the 3 of them deciding to set up a film company to make new classic horror films, but there was a disagreement as to whether or not the old monsters could still scare the then-modern audiences. To resolve this, the trio dressed up and snuck around the Chicago O'Hare Airport Hotel during a secretaries' convention, creating havoc. Yes it was a humorous episode. Many of your MeTV viewers have probably never seen this classic of TV, but to an old monster kid (67 years old) who grew up on & loved the old Universal classics, this Halloween episode wlll never be topped!!! P.S. among the cast of secretaries were Betsy Jones-Moreland (a frequent actress in the old Roger Corman films) and Jeannine Riley, one of the original daughters in Petticioat Junction. Her role was the most pivotal one to the plot.
