"DISNEY'S 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.
After the cartoons, the night watchman provokes the jack-o'-lantern to come out of hiding from the crystal ball and go back to celebrating Halloween the way he's supposed to because the trick or treaters are counting on him to show up tonight. Then, jack-o'-lantern uses his magic powers to switch places with the night watchman. He laughs and heads out into the night to mix with the trick or treaters. Meanwhile the night watchman says that it look's like he's going to have a nice Halloween after all and incidentally if they see Mr. Pumpkin head on their block tonight he tells them to make sure that come backs before midnight or else.
Due to the extreme rarity of the film, the quality is approximately 8.5-9/10.

"A DISNEY HALLOWEEN" is a 90-minute Halloween-themed television special which originally aired as part of The Wonderful World of Disney on October 29, 1983.
The special is hosted by an offscreen narrator (voiced by Hal Douglas) and the Magic Mirror (using re-edited vintage footage of the late Hans Conried) which incorporates segments from both "Disney's Halloween Treat" (1982) and "Disney's Greatest Villains" (1977) episodes featuring classic short cartoons and excerpts of various villains from Disney feature films. The opening and closing credits feature footage of the 1929 Silly Symphony short "The Skeleton Dance", as did "Disney's Halloween Treat", but the coloring on the skeletons has been changed to green, orange, and dark green. The special was rebroadcast during October for the following years on ABC and The Disney Channel until the late 1990s.

"DISNEY'S GREATEST VILLAINS" was originally an episode of The Wonderful World of Disney. It was a somewhat updated version of 1956's "Our Unsung Villains", featuring additional Disney villains after 1956, up to and including Madame Medusa, the villain in the then-upcoming Disney film The Rescuers. But it would be shown again in reruns, the last time being on the Vault Disney block of programming on the Disney Channel. In 1983, portions of "Disney's Greatest Villains" were incorporated into the 90-minute special A Disney Halloween.
This DVD presents the UK version, which was released on video in the UK in 1983. This version featured additional Disney villains and was hosted not by the Magic Mirror, but by Shere Khan and Kaa from the Jungle Book.
