Halloween Hall o' Fame is a television special that first aired on October 30, 1977 as part of The Wonderful World of Disney. The special featured Jonathan Winters as a security guard working late at the Walt Disney Productions studio on Halloween night. He is accompanied by his dog, Peanuts. Winters, bitter about working on Halloween night, stumbles upon the prop room at the studio and begins acting out scenes with various props. Eventually he finds a crystal ball containing a talking pumpkin, Jack O'Lantern (also played by Winters). Jack O'Lantern is hiding out from Halloween because it is no longer scary like it was in "the old days". The dialogue between the security guard and the pumpkin is interspersed with Halloween-related Disney cartoons, that Jack O'Lantern shows the security guard in his crystal ball and which the audience gets to enjoy.
