Television characters have long had a love affair with Halloween, sometimes even celebrating the holiday by repping their favorite TV characters! Sounds pretty meta, but mostly, it's a ton of fun. Check out this rundown of TV characters who've dressed up as their favorite TV characters for Halloween."Fantasy Island" when they dressed up as Mr. Roarke and his sidekick, Tattoo, for a Halloween costume party. Cam didn't originally plan to channel the proprietor of TV's most mysterious island; the matador costume he ordered to show off his 32.4-pound weight loss arrived as a bull costume instead! Not to mention getting Lily to trade in her princess tiara for Tattoo's white suit was no easy task either. But in the end, this father-daughter duo queued up the cuteness. De plane! De plane! "Scooby Doo" gang for Halloween. While red-haired Tessa was a natural to dress up as Daphne, and Lisa (Allie Grant) made a groovy Velma, the guys got it all wrong: Malik (Maestro Harrell) and Ryan (Parker Young) both dressed up as Fred. So where's Shaggy? In a deleted scene, apparently. "Popeye," with Jim (John Krasinski) dressing as the spinach-loving sailor and Pam (Jenna Fischer) dressing as Olive Oyl. Baby Cece even turned up as Swee'Pea. But perhaps even more memorable was when Mindy Kaling's character, Kelly, dressed up as "Sex and the City" character Carrie Bradshaw in the series' 2008 Halloween episode. Let's just say Kelly needed a little more practice walking in Manolos! The Bionic Woman,' what would I wear?" the character of Bill (Martin Starr) asked himself as he gazed in the mirror on the short-lived sitcom "Freaks and Geeks." What followed was a hilarious montage detailing his transformation into Lindsay Wagner's 1970s character, OSI agent Jaime Sommers, as he talked to an imaginary Steve Austin and Oscar Goldman and feigned a bionic ear. The finished costume wasn't particularly bionic, but you can't find a character more determined to get into character than this one. Check out Bill's transformation here. "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo"- themed Halloween. According to TV Guide, show creator Ryan Murphy teased that the character of Shania (Bebe Wood) "loves that show, so they decide to go en masse as that family." And there's more TV character costuming to come: Jane (Ellen Barkin) doubles up on the blue eye shadow and zaps herself into "Bewitched" character Endora (check out a pic here). In fact, there will be 15 character costume changes in this Halloween-themed episode. With any luck, that even leaves room for a cameo by Glitzy the pig! All we want to know is, who's mixing up the go go juice?
