Lethal Listings: 7 Halloween TV Specials You Might Have Forgotten

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman and A Charlie Brown Christmas. If you and your family didn’t tune in, you had to wait a whole year for another opportunity to watch them. Holiday Specials were once a staple in the homes of most Americans and Halloween was no exception. Join us as we do the Time Warp again and resurrect 7 Halloween TV Specials You Might Have Forgotten…On 2GuysTalkingHorror!
