With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to give in to the spirit of the holiday season with the best Halloween-themed episodes in the history of television. And for this article, we’ll be taking a look at The Office Halloween episodes in one of the best rankings you’ll come across on the internet.
Although NBC’s workplace sitcom ended its run of nine seasons back in 2013, The Office still continues to grow in popularity pretty much because of the hilarious memes and the offensive yet outstanding comedy that the phenomenal crew of the show has offered.
Whether you like The Office or not, there’s no denying the fact that the documentary drama has registered itself as a rerun series due to its tone of unique comedy. With the special holiday season episodes accounting for some of the most rewatched episodes, it’s no surprise that people come to revisit the shenanigans of the Dunder Mifflin employees and relive moments of fun and laughter in the spookiest way possible.
The Office Halloween Episodes: Ranked!
Without further ado, let’s dive right into the ranking of the best Halloween episodes from The Office.
#6 Employee Transfer (Season 5 Episode 6)
The best thing about the episode is the outrageously fantastic Halloween costumes that the cast is dressed up in apart from Jim who is only wearing his perfect facial expressions along with a name tag that says ‘Dave’.
In the corporate office in NY, Pam finds herself being the only one dressed in a costume and a Charlie Chaplin one at that. Talk about feeling silly, amirite? Well, the situation only takes a more hilarious turn as she is not able to remove her grease mustache.
Meanwhile, at the Scranton office, the trio of Creed, Kevin, and Dwight arrives in the same Heath Ledger’s Joker costume from The Dark Knight. Aside from the hilarity of the costumes, the rest of the episode features the Halloween drama that you shouldn’t miss out on.
#5 Here Comes Treble (Season 9 Episode 5)
The opening of the episode definitely serves as its highlight with Dwight wearing a jack-o’-lantern on his head in an attempt to scare his coworkers. Not only does he fail in pulling off the prank, but he also gets stuck in the pumpkin.
While enlisting Jim to help him out, the latter suggests smashing the pumpkin off with a baseball bat. With that idea being out of the question, quite clearly, Dwight decides to let it rot off with the estimate of about a month.
In other events, things don’t go quite as planned for much of the cast as well. Pam (dressed as Dr. Cinderella) and Jim (not dressed as usual) end up in a fight after the latter offers investors $10000 more than what the duo previously agreed on.
#4 Koi Pond (Season 6 Episode 8)
The plot of the Koi Pond episode features the Dunder Mifflin employees making fun of Micheal after he falls into a koi pond while at a meeting with clients. Although, things take a turn for better or worse as a security tape reveals that Jim could’ve stopped Micheal’s fall.
While this revelation upsets him, Micheal’s mood is soon lifted as he realizes that Jim is jealous of his sales skills. The two make it up as Jim eventually becomes the victim of office mocking.
In other events of the episode, Pam and Andy go cold calling in order to rope in more sales. The plot turns up the interest of the fans as the duo ends up posing to be a married couple to try and land a sale.
#3 Spooked (Season 8 Episode 5)
This marks the first Halloween episode that doesn’t feature Micheal Scott. The plot follows Andy, as the new manager, assigning Erin to set up the Halloween party to impress Sabre CEO – Robert California.
However, things take a twist as Andy enlists the help of the Planning Committee after Robert shows up with his son, Bert, who remarks on the party being more tailored to kids rather than adults.
In other events of the episode, Pam and Jim are arguing whether or not ghosts are real after the former claims to have encountered one at her old workplace. Meanwhile, Dwight and Bert bond over the episode in one of the most unimaginable ways.
#2 Costume Contest (Season 7 Episode 6)
This episode marks as one of the best The Office Halloween episodes with the number of creative costume changes for the Halloween contest that everyone thinks is worth $15000. In a series of events, Jim finally gives in to the tradition by dressing up as Popeye to match Pam’s Olive Oyl and even bringing Cece to the party dressed as Swee’Pea.
Meanwhile, Darryl pitches an idea to Gabe without involving Micheal which pisses him off into rallying everyone at the office into calling him a backstabber. Apart from all that, the fact that it was the last Halloween episode featuring Micheal before Carell left the series.
#1 Halloween (Season 3 Episode 5)
Making its way to the top of the best The Office Halloween episodes, we’ve got the very first Halloween-themed episode of the series. Apart from having one of the most well-constructed scripts, the episode gets played to its perfection by the amazing cast.
The plot follows Micheal’s ordeal to fire an employee by the month-end as per orders from Corporate. Micheal being his natural procrastinating self drags the situation to the very day of Halloween where he has to now decide which Dunder Mifflin employee to let go.
In other events, Jim and Pam join hands to post Dwight’s résumé online as the latter begins to get on his nerves. Even though Dwight ends up getting shortlisted for the phone interview, he blows his chances by getting into an argument with the caller.
And while he goes up to Micheal to tell him about his refusal of the offer, Micheal gets annoyed because that would have solved his firing problem. The whole episode is just too perfect with all the chaos brewing in the office.
