It’s been several years since the fast food chains have given fans of Halloween something to get excited about. Gone are the days of the Burger King Universal Studios Monsters and the McDonald’s Halloween McNugget Buddies. However, we can still be thankful for McDonald’s McBoo Pails! Recently, they have all been licensed and usually with properties that have very little to do with Halloween. That, however, is changing this year. For the first time in several years, McDonald’s is giving us a Halloween Happy Meal to remember… McBoo Buckets adorned with The Peanuts, as they appear in the classic TV special “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!”
The “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” Halloween Happy Meal toys will be unleashed at the end of October. Each bucket comes with a set of “Great Pumpkin” character stickers that can be used to decorate the bucket. Limited time only, while supplies last.

For several years, Halloween selections at fast food restaurants were slim to none. In recent years that has changed. A few years back, McDonald’s reintroduced an old Halloween staple – the McBoo Bucket or the McBoo Pail. After years of being absent from the Halloween season, it made a triumphant return and has been at the fast food chain every year since.
This year, the McBoo Buckets are returning. Just as in the old days, there will be three designs. However, as opposed to featuring Ghosts, Witches and Pumpkins, these new pails will feature the cast of Scooby Doo. They will be coming to McDonald’s restaurants in the mid-October.
But you don’t have to wait until then to get your hands on some Halloween goodness at the nation’s number one fast food store. Right now, McDonald’s is featuring Hotel Transylvania Happy Meals. The animated movie monsters have been transformed into toys and are now being given away with the purchase of a Happy Meal. Collect everyone from Count Dracula to Murray the Mummy. Available while supplies last.
