Each year, the Halloween Cartoons feature the characters dressed in different costumes, usually of pop icons and celebrities.

The costumes are generally "vintage," in that they feature characters who were popular in the 80's and 90's, although it is uncertain if this is simply a style choice, or done deliberately to give the cartoons a more "timeless" feel.
