Nick or Treat! is a Halloween block on Nickelodeon that aired every Halloween from 1985 to 2002. It was taped at Nickelodeon Studios.


The hosts for the show were Radar the Bat, Joey the Werewolf, a hunchback person, Pumpky the Jack-o'-Lantern, and Fred Newman himself during the blocks. All of the Halloween characters were performed by Newman.


The contestant is a kid on the phone who has 6 houses to get prizes from. He/she has 40 seconds to go to each house to find the prizes. The contestant must say what house they want to go and press a number on the phone to open the door. While the contestant is running to each house, obstacles, such as ghosts or witches, are in the way. Inside one of the houses could be one of the characters from Aaahh!!! Real Monsters saying that they don't have any prizes for the contestant, if the house does not have prizes. However, the other houses could have prizes in them, such as video games, video gaming systems, television sets, The Nickelodeon Pack (an assortment of gifts from different shows which was the biggest prize on the show), and CD Roms. The object of the game was to get the most prizes before the 40 seconds was up.


The sponsors for Nick or Treat were McDonald's and Playskool.


It is returning as part of TeenNick's The Splat block in 2015.
