Mystery Magical Special (also known on screen as Marc Summers' Mystery Magical Tour) is an American television special aired on Nickelodeon. Advertised as a Halloween-themed program, the special was originally produced in 1986, but continued air, often multiple times, every October for several years afterward, ceasing after 1996.

Primarily, the special was designed to show off the talents of stage magicians Lance Burton and Tina Lenert, as well as capitalize on Marc Summers' then-newfound popularity as the host of the game show Double Dare. Shiri Appleby and Jonathan Brandis and Trenton Teigen also appear, and John Astin (best known for his role of Gomez Addams) makes a cameo appearance. Filming took place at The Magic Castle in Los Angeles, CA.
