I'm back when she was hot."by Jeremy HayesBuzzFeed ContributorFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink Halloween costumes are essential to a good time in October! TV shows have given us some classics, so you know I had to rank them. Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Paramount Pictures *NOTE* I only selected one outfit from each character. Some shows had more Halloween episodes than others, so I had to limit a spot per character or family-themed costumes. Here are the 31 best Halloween costumes from TV show characters: 31. Ross as a spud(nik) (Friends) Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF NBC You know...like Sputnik? The most memorable terrible costume on TV and it HAD to make my list.#HeTried 30. Kevin Malone as Charlie Brown (The Office) NBC Kevin Malone brings his A-game with a callback to another character that will appear on this list.Black and gold always looks good. 29. Patrick Star as "I don't know who I am" (SpongeBob SquarePants) Nickelodeon It gives SpongeBob Scaredy Pants a fright, but nothing too intimidating about a pink starfish with glasses and a mustache. 28. Teddy as a nurse (Bob's Burgers) FOX Is there a better friend than Teddy? What friend do you have that would dress up as a nurse for you (on Halloween night) and take care of you? 27. SpongeBob SquarePants as the ghost of the Flying Dutchman (SpongeBob SquarePants) Nickelodeon It doesn't really scream "Flying Dutchman," but Patrick did his best to help his buddy out.What lies beneath is way more terrifying. 26. DJ as the The Alfalfa-nator (Roseanne) Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF ABC Bold. Although, the Alfalfa costume would have sufficed for DJ. 25. Phoebe as Superwoman (Friends) NBC The ribbons are adorable, and the costume actually seems comfortable, like Ross's giant potato costume. 24. Rosa Diaz as the Bride of Frankenstein (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF FOX Don't mess with Officer Diaz.I love that it is her actual hair and not a wig. The white paper stripe in her hair is hysterical. 23. Tina Belcher as a mommy mummy (Bob's Burgers) FOX Tina Belcher has had a lot of great costumes in Bob's Burgers, but this one stands out the most to me. The baby being a mummy, too, is a nice touch. 22. Roseanne and Dan as a ventriloquist and dummy (Roseanne) ABC Very clever to have Dan be the one used as a puppet, and the design for both of them is spectacular. 21. Tim Taylor's zombie costume (Home Improvement) ABC As far as '90s shows go, Home Improvement and Roseanne really went all out on Halloween episodes.Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor's undead makeup is some of the best I've seen on a TV show. 20. Lucy as a witch (It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown) CBS I love this clashing look by Lucy. A white sheet, a green mask, and a red witch's hat.She tried to warn Sally not to stay in that pumpkin patch. 19. Snoopy as an ace pilot (It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown) Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF CBS Snoopy versus the Red Baron is a yearly tradition.He may go down fighting, but kudos to that red scarf. 18. Haley as Mother Teresa (Modern Family) ABC There are a lot of great costumes on this list, but Haley throwing on a headscarf with her dress is too funny.Thus birthing the amazing line: "I'm back when she was hot." 17. The Party as Ghostbusters (Stranger Things) Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Netflix Everyone wants to be Venkman.The Stranger Things gang really went all out in Season 2, and the proton packs are very impressive. 16. Kelly Kapoor as Katy Perry (The Office) NBC From the Wonder Bread-looking dress to the green wig, this costume is an outrageous attempt at Katy Perry. Love it. 15. Monica as Catwoman (Friends) NBC I don't even watch Friends, but I saw "Friends Courteney Cox Catwoman" in Google Images, and I have never hit the search button quicker. I obviously have a Courteney Cox bias, but the outfit is pretty sweet. 14. Louise Belcher as Anton Chigurh (Bob's Burgers) FOX She seems a little young to know who this character is, but it is fitting for her. I love the taped-up 2-liter as the prop. 13. The Johnson family goes retro (Black-ish) ABC The Johnson family has had some of the sickest Halloween costume themes on TV, but I made the tough call of their retro look over their Black Panther theme and Incredibles look.There is just more individualism in their Jackson family theme, and the colors all pop together! 12. Stewie as a duck (Family Guy) FOX The duck costume is adorable.He was bitten by a vampire ducky, and this is him now. Accept him. 11. Michael Scott as MacGruber (The Office) Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF NBC Not MacGyver...MacGruber.He brings the energy, and I don't know anyone who doesn't like Michael Scott. 10. Charles Boyle as Mario Batali (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) FOX Like other characters, I would not have guessed it right away, but hey, Boyle always has the spirit in his costume choices. 9. Troy as Sexy Dracula (Community) NBC Lazy? Ingenious? You decide. I, for one, think it's hilarious. 8. Linda Belcher as a Cher-iff (Bob's Burgers) FOX Linda's best costume by far. The ratio between sheriff and Cher seems unbalanced, but that's what makes it great. 7. Darlene's The Birds homage (Roseanne) ABC This suits Darlene's character so well. Gruesome, but also a hilarious reference to Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. 6. The Pritchetts as the Bat-family (Modern Family) ABC Some of the best trick-or-treater themes I've seen.The comically cheap Batman mask really stands out compared to the lavish colors of the family's costumes. 5. Sandy Cheeks as a pet goldfish in a bowl (SpongeBob SquarePants) Nickelodeon "I don't get it."The best way to celebrate Halloween in Bikini Bottom, if you are a land critter. 4. Salem as a ghost (Sabrina the Teenage Witch) Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF ABC There's something adorable about Salem in a ghost costume. The puppet's movements make it that much funnier. 3. Dwight as a Jack-'o-Lantern (The Office) NBC Daring costume, but with no exit plan, Dwight has to wait for this pumpkin to rot.For some reason, the carved-out face of the pumpkin is too funny. 2. Gene Belcher as Turner & Hooch (Bob's Burgers) FOX One of my favorites ever on Bob's Burgers, and again, a surprising reference that someone Gene's age would get. I guess Bob watches a lot of '80s films with the Belcher kids. 1. Charlie Brown as a ghost with too many eyes (It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown) Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF CBS "I got a rock."He got a little carried away with the scissors, but thankfully for us, he gave us one of the most memorable Halloween costumes on TV.
