Episode Summary

Trick or Treat
An unusually clever Halloween episode that actually makes a point about the impact of Halloween scares on very young children while cleverly poking fun at the structural games of recent horror films. Bobby's gross costume frightens Oscar more than he wants to let on, ruining his favorite holiday of the year, and Porter's anger is partly directed at the sadistic pranks Bobby used to play on him as a child. But when Bobby tries to comfort Oscar after a particularly bad nightmare, everyone finds themselves trapped in a series of Chinese box nightmares as each character in turn wakes out of the previous character's dream. Ultimately Porter takes Oscar to see a psychologist friend, who just happens to be costumed as Death, and who explains that we sometimes deal with our real fears in life by dressing up as fears that we can handle.moreless
