TV Episodes for a “Not so Spooky” Halloween

If you’re like me, I love the cute and playful side of Halloween. More of the “baking seasonal treats” and “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!” and less of the “gory exorcism murder nightmare fuel” stuff. But hey, no judgment if that’s your jam.

Every year I try to find TV episode and movie options that are on the “fun” not “freak me out before I try to go to sleep” side of the holiday and always wish I had a list of options to choose from so voila! Here you go. My list of TV Episodes for a “Not so Scary” or “Not so Spooky” Halloween.
