Why did The Golden Girls never do a Halloween episode?

This troubles me.

They did the golden showers episode

It would be like drag queens going as drag queens. Redundant ... and nobody would know the difference.

Oh please, if they had, it would have just been another flashback episode where they remember past Halloweens. One poignant, one silly and one set in Brooklyn in the 1940s with Lynnie Green as Dorothy.

Someone at NBC needs to explain. I'm furious about this.

Honey, EVERY episode was a Halloween episode.

Because it was a show about senior citizens and Halloween was primarily a children's holiday back then.

Dorothy did reference that one Halloween when half the kids in the neighborhood wore Freida Claxton masks.

Let's dig them up and have them do a zombie-themed episode right now.

They tried it once, but the neighbors weren't pleased that their children came home with samples of Metamucil instead of candy. (And Blanche's costumes were pretty risqué, too.)

You apparently don't remember the one where Bea Arthur's cock was the "trick" used to scare the neighborhood children away.

R10, Dorothy and Miles kissed on the lanai; they didn't have an affair.

Fuck you, R17.

I agree, fuck R17.

Great video, r19. I wonder if Dakota will grow up to be gay?

Remember the episode when Dorothy fights the woman for the Ninja Turtle mask? It was a present for her grandson. That should count. Plus, they've dressed up as cats and that one time Dorothy was suppose to be the other half of the costume (but she threw Rose aside to hang with her writer friend). Not exactly Halloween but still dressing up.

Gonna come off like a frau, but I loved that video R19 posted.

A Halloween episode?

How gauche.

Since Halloween is the time for Frieda Claxton costumes, can I ask a question: are there very few big old trees in Florida or something? I'm from the Northeast and I truly never remember any discussion of the age of any tree in our neighborhood, nor of anybody caring if a neighbor wanted to tear a tree on their property down. Does the girls' obsession with Mrs. Claxton's tree make sense because the Florida ecosystem doesn't include many 200-year-old oaks so wanting to tear one down really would cause neighborhood controversy? Or is it just a far-fetched hook to hang a flimsy sitcom episode on?

Dorothy's wedding dress was all the Halloween costume we needed.
