Halloween is just a couple of weeks away and I thought I would share some of my favorite Halloween episodes from Roseanne. In fact TVLand aired all of the Halloween episodes and I watched all of them!! LOL!!!
Roseanne ran from 1988 to 1997 and starred Roseanne Barr and John Goodman. It was an original family sitcom that centered around a working class family struggling to make ends meet and who suffered the same problems as many of their viewers. From seasons 2 through 8, Roseanne had special Halloween episodes every year.
While most families (and TV shows at the time) would make a big fuss over Christmas, the Conners considered Halloween to be the best holiday of the year. The family would spare no expense to decorate their house and come up with most gruesome tricks to play on each other and their friends. They also expected for one another to come with the most creative and gruesome costumes and pranks.
Today, I would like to share a few of my favorite Halloween episodes from Roseanne.
