"BOO!" Roseanne (Season 2, Episode 7)
Roseanne is the queen of Halloween. Or, the Halloween "master," as she deems herself in this Season 2 episode, which finds her fighting for the title with husband Dan (John Goodman). The two one-up each other with a series of diabolical gags, including a fake electrocution, a feigned (and bloody) hand injury, and, eventually, a massive prank Roseanne pulls on Dan with the help of his prospective business associate.
Roseanne was famous for its Halloween episodes, and did eight in its nine-season run, but "Boo!" is hands-down the best. It’s the least flashy, rooting itself in the Conner household, which, despite blue-collar financial limitations, blossoms with drug-store decorations. Their Halloween spirit is infectious and familiar, a soothing distraction from the bills on the table. That’s Roseanne in a nutshell, and what makes the show’s Halloween entries so special.
