Over the decades, Saturday Night Live has brought some wild holiday sketches to millions of households. When it comes to Halloween, they tend to up the ante in terms of complete insanity. We take a look at some of the best Halloween sketches to arrive from the Emmy-winning series.

The Merryville Brothers: Haunted Castle

The Merryville Brothers skits are simply built for Halloween. In 2012, host/musical guest Bruno Mars joined the attraction as a new member. During the sketch, the three brothers sing, dance, and show off their knife collection. This specific sketch includes a cameo appearance from Tom Hanks as the fourth member.

Firelight

In 2009, Twilight became the hottest thing in theaters. A couple weeks before the release of The Twilight Saga: New Moon, SNL unveiled their own love story with “Firelight.” Taylor Swift plays Stella Swan, who falls in love with Phillip Frank. Unlike those hot vampires in Twilight, Phillip is a creepy Frankenstein that’s scared of fire.

NBC

Graveyard Song

While hosting SNL in 2014, Jim Carrey dug deep into his spooky side in “Graveyard Song.” In this sketch, Carrey, along with Taran Killam, keep butting into plans to scaring some graveyard visitors. With their consistent need to drop their names every other second, they accidentally let the visitors go.

Stefon On Halloween

City correspondent Stefon has been delivering tips on SNL for years. When it came to Halloween, he couldn’t resist giving people some advice for browsing NYC during the holiday. With outrageous descriptions of clubs, this sketch was wall to wall laughs. As expected, the 2012 sketch included Bill Hader breaking character.

NBC

Haunted Elevator

In 2016, Tom Hanks transformed into David S. Pumpkins for the sketch “Haunted Elevator.” The character shows up to spook guests at the 100 Floors of Frights attraction. With his dancing skeletons, he concludes his elevator stints by asking, “Any questions?” The sketch was mostly inspired by the “Little Superstar” viral video.
