A Disney Halloween was a 90-minute Halloween-themed television special that included portions from both Disney's Halloween Treat (1982) and Disney's Greatest Villains (1977) featuring classic short cartoons and excerpts of various villains from Disney feature films. It was hosted by an offscreen narrator and the Magic Mirror from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (played by Hans Conried). The opening and closing credits feature footage from the Silly Symphonies short "The Skeleton Dance", as did Disney's Halloween Treat, but the coloring on the skeletons has been changed to green.

The special first aired on October 1, 1983 and was shown during October for the following years on ABC and the Disney Channel until the late 1990s.

Introduction[edit]

In some versions, Disney's then-chairman, Michael Eisner, introduces the special along with Mickey Mouse (Wayne Allwine) and Minnie Mouse (Russi Taylor) in their incarnation as costumed characters from the Disney theme parks. Mickey tells Eisner that Goofy is on his way and "has been working on his costume for a month". There is a knock on the door we see Goofy's "costume": Michael Eisner, overdubbed with Goofy's (Bill Farmer) voice.
