In 1977, "Halloween Hall o' Fame" aired on CBS as part of the Sunday night hallmark "The Wonderful World of Disney." Inside a loose framework, wherein Jonathan Winters played a security guard at the Walt Disney Studios, were several of the studio's classic cartoons and a wonderfully wicked vibe.
This was followed by another "Wonderful World of Disney" special, "Disney's Halloween Treat," which aired in 1982 and was immediately succeeded by the much more comprehensive "A Disney Halloween" the following year (it was sort of a greatest hits compilation and also featured footage from the Haunted Mansion).
What these specials did, beside provide a wonderful dose of pre-Halloween fun, was showcase some of the best, most wicked shorts and segments from Disney's history. Here are some of those (and more), to put you in the perfect pumpkin-carving mood.
