"Disney's Halloween Treat" is a 47-minute Halloween-themed clip show which first aired on The Wonderful World of Disney in 1982 and featured a compilation of Disney animated shorts involving spooky or supernatural themes as well as excerpted segments from Disney feature films. The credits also featured footage from Disney's Haunted Mansion ride. The special was narrated by a jack-o'-lantern puppet, which was also used in an educational short to talk about Halloween safety called Disney's Haunted Halloween. The opening and closing credits feature an orange colorized version of the 1929 Silly Symphonies short The Skeleton Dance, as well as its own theme song, sung in the opening and closing credits. The lyrics were written by Galen R. Brandt with music by John Debney.

It was shown throughout the 1980s up until the mid-1990s. It was also released on VHS in 1984. As of today, Disney's Halloween Treat has not been released on DVD.

Another similar special titled A Disney Halloween aired in 1983 which featured segments from both "Disney's Halloween Treat" and the 1977 episode "Disney's Greatest Villains."
