"Disney's Halloween Treat" is a 1982 Halloween-themed episode of Walt Disney which originally aired on October 30, 1982.


The episode is narrated by a jack-o'-lantern puppet (voiced by Hal Douglas) and features a compilation of classic Disney short cartoons involving spooky or supernatural themes as well as excerpted segments of various villains from Disney feature films. The opening and closing credits feature an orange colorized version of the 1929 Silly Symphony short The Skeleton Dance as well as its own title theme song, sung in the opening and closing credits. The lyrics were written by Galen R. Brandt with music by John Debney.

Another similar special titled "A Disney Halloween" aired in 1983 which incorporated segments from both "Disney's Halloween Treat" and "Disney's Greatest Villains" (1977). "Disney's Halloween Treat" was rebroadcast throughout the 1980s up until the mid-1990s. It was also released on VHS in 1984. As of today, it has not been released on DVD or Blu-ray.
