My thanks to Retrocrush for putting this list of the worst Halloween costumes of all time together. (Though I suspect, it would be fair to say the worst Halloween costumes of the 70s.) Why did marketers believe you needed to put the name of the show on the darned costume? Shouldn’t the costume’s utter lameness itself sell it?
And I can’t help but agree: the thought of some kid trick-or-treating while wearing a Gabe Caplan mask just fills me with sadness. A hat tip to Mr. Snitch as well, for providing the link to the 100 Scariest Monsters at the same site.
