Tune in Friday and Saturday for a cauldron full of classic Halloween episodes
Watch MeTV for perfect holiday programming, from a haunted Happy Days to a spooky Bonanza. Plus, Svengoolie hosts Super Sci-Fi Saturday Night!
Halloween is more than creepy decorations, candy and costumes. It's about feeling like a kid again. Nothing gives you those warm and fuzzy feelings of childhood quite like classic television. To celebrate the holiday, MeTV has lined up a monster slate of TV tricks and treats. From sitcoms to westerns to superheroes, our schedule is filled with that All Hallows' Eve spirit. Pop on MeTV for the perfect backdrop to your Halloween parties or candy dispensing.
Saturday evening, our very own Svengoolie will host Super Sci-Fi Saturday Night. Perennial costume inspirations Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Spock will lead into a beautiful new print of Boris Karloff's Frankenstein (1931).
