Jonathan Winters as The Watchman and Jack-o'-lantern
Jonathan Winters stars as a night watchman working late at Walt Disney Studios on Halloween night. He is accompanied by his dog, Peanuts. The night watchman, bitter about working on Halloween night, stumbles upon the prop room at the studio and begins acting out scenes with various props. Eventually, he finds a crystal ball containing a talking Jack-o'-lantern (also played by Winters). Jack-o'-lantern is hiding out from Halloween because it's no longer scary like it was back in "the olden days".
The dialogue between the night watchman and the jack-o'-lantern is interspersed with three Halloween-related Disney cartoons that jack-o'-lantern shows the night watchman in his crystal ball and which the audience gets to enjoy. After the cartoons, the night watchman provokes the jack-o'-lantern to come out of hiding and go celebrate Halloween. Then, jack-o'-lantern uses his magic powers to switch places with the night watchman. He laughs and heads out into the night to mix with the trick or treaters.
- Trick or Treat (1952) features Huey, Dewey, and Louie as they go trick or treating; Donald Duck plays a mean trick on them and the boys seek revenge with the help of Witch Hazel.
- Pluto's Judgement Day (1935) shows Pluto asleep and dreaming he is on trial for tormenting cats featuring a jury of felines who instantly proclaim he's guilty.
- The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1949) segment from The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad and narrated by Bing Crosby. This cartoon takes up the rest and most of the episode.
