The Paul Lynde Halloween Special is the Only Thing Worth Watching This Week

This week, you will be force-fed lists of horror movies to watch, Halloween classics to revisit, and the ever-unfunny "Treehouse of Horror" episodes from The Simpsons.

Ignore these lists. The Paul Lynde Halloween Special is the only thing worth watching this week.

Shot in 1976 and aired exactly once, the hour-long special is a crash course in camp, featuring Paul Lynde, Donny & Marie Osmond and Betty White. Margaret Hamilton reprises her role as the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz. Florence Henderson sings a disco version of "That Old Black Magic." KISS plays three songs. Paul Lynde is fabulous. The entire thing is bonkers.

Without further ado:
