Halloween on TV has become a staple of October viewing, which is why it's always fun to revisit spooky shows of yore.

Screener has culled hundreds of hours of Halloween TV down to the best of the best, so without further ado, here are 10 of our all-time favorite Halloween shows that did fright right.

'Roseanne,' Season 2

The Conners were the undisputed kings of Halloween, kicking things off in Season 2's "Boo," which saw Dan (John Goodman) and Roseanne (Roseanne Barr) engaged in a battle of Halloween pranks. The show did an annual Halloween episode for seven glorious years.

'The Simpsons,' Season 6

The annual Treehouse of Horror episode is an October classic. It's hard to choose the best one, but we're going with Treehouse of Horror V -- "The Shining," "Time and Punishment" and "Nightmare Cafeteria."

'My So-Called Life,' Season 1

"Halloween" is a polarizing episode of this beloved one-season wonder, but we liked it. It was spooky, funny and gave us the always-delightful pairing of Rayanne Graff (A.J. Langer) and Brian Krakow (Devon Gummersall).

'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' Season 2

This supernatural teen drama did Halloween episodes twice. Season 4's "Fear Itself" was a lot of fun, but it can't top Season 2, where Ethan Rayne's (Robin Sachs) spell turned everyone into living embodiments of their costumes.

'Friends,' Season 8

Thanksgiving was "Friends" go-to awesome holiday, but in Season 8, they did a Halloween episode that featured some amazing costumes, Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) freaking out at trick-or-treaters and Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) falling for her sister's fiance (guest star Sean Penn). Oops.

'How I Met Your Mother,' Season 1

The first season of "HIMYM" was full of great episodes, but "The Slutty Pumpkin" might just take the cake candy. It was made even more delightful when the Pumpkin actually showed up in Season 7, played by Katie Holmes.

'The Office,' Season 5

Halloween was generally more of a throwaway gag on "The Office" -- they didn't devote entire episodes to it, more so the show simply had characters come to work in costume. The highlight was in Season 5, where there were three Jokers at the office and poor Pam (Jenna Fischer) at corporate didn't know that no one would dress up.

'Glee,' Season 2

In Season 2, the McKinley High students put on a production of "The Rocky Horror Show" and it was predictably awesome. Amber Riley made for one heckuva Frank-N-Furter.

'Modern Family,' Season 4

The Claire (Julie Bowen) and Phil (Ty Burrell) are Halloween lovers in the vein of the Conners, pulling pranks and scaring the pants off the neighborhood kids. Nothing tops Season 4's "Open House of Horrors," where Claire actually made a dad have a heart attack at the front door.

'Pretty Little Liars,' Season 3

The annual "PLL" Halloween episode was always full of secrets revealed and dead bodies uncovered. It's hard to pick between "The First Secret," "This Is A Dark Ride" and "Grave New World," but we're going to give the prize to "Dark Ride." The costumed Liars were trapped on a train with Adam Lambert, a murderous Queen of Hearts and a couple dead bodies. It doesn't get any better than that.
