"Disney's Halloween Treat" is a 47-minute Halloween-themed clip show which first aired on Walt Disney in 1982 and featured a compilation of Disney animated shorts involving spooky or supernatural themes as well as excerpted segments from Disney feature films. The credits also featured footage from the Haunted Mansion ride. It was narrated by a talking jack o'lantern, which was also used in an educational short to talk about Halloween safety called "Disney's Haunted Halloween". The opening and closing credits feature a colorized version of the 1929 Silly Symphonies short "The Skeleton Dance", as well as its own theme song, sung in the credits. The lyrics were written by Galen R. Brandt with music by John Debney.
It was shown throughout the 1980s up until the mid-1990s. It was also released on VHS in 1984, but has not been released on DVD.
