We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to share their favorite Halloween-themed TV episodes. Here are the spooky results.

1. Boy Meets World: "And Then There Was Shawn"

This is hands down the best Halloween episode from any TV show. It’s so freaky and, even now, I can’t watch it alone! –malloryc40b8b0326

2. Parks and Recreation: "Halloween Surprise"

Leslie as Rosie the Riveter + Jerry’s fart attack + the amazing surprise at the end makes it one of my favorite TV episodes of all time, not just in the Halloween category.

3. Buffy the Vampire Slayer: "Fear, Itself"

Best Halloween episode ever. You have a scary haunted house, fun costumes (Giles in a sombrero, Anya as a bunny, I mean, come on), and the best demon slay in the entire series.

Fox

Both Halloween episodes from this show have been amazing, but if I had to pick, I'd say the first one is the best.

Let me paint a picture for you: Castle opens the episode wearing his Space Cowboy costume. Enough said.

The ghost train episode of Pretty Little Liars is freaking perfect! They've got all the thrills, with a little bit of Halloween fun, and just enough new secrets revealed.

14. The Simpsons: "Treehouse of Horror"

FOX

The Simpsons is know for their yearly "Treehouse of Horror" specials. If you're looking for the ultimate Halloween treat, watch their older episodes, particularly the ones where they parody Dracula and The Shining.

15. Roseanne: "Boo!"

Their very first Halloween episode in Season 2 was absolutely hilarious. What's better than Dan and Roseanne playing pranks on each other?–jordans43125d2f3

Dwight gets his head stuck in a pumpkin. You really can't top that.

17. Community: "Epidemiology"

NBC

I don't think any Halloween episode can beat this one. They're fighting zombies while ABBA plays in the background, and Troy tries to save the day by being a nerd. Brilliant.
