    Halloween is less than a month away and here at TeenNick, we're looking forward to the big night by throwing it back two decades. The '90s were a magical time when the only thing orange was an iguana (or soda!) and inspirational quotes came from Uncle Tito, not Instagram.

    Happy Halloween!


    As you prepare for an evening of sugary sweetness, allow us to first tempt you with a little ear candy! Halloween might not claim an entire genre of festive tunes (Christmas...always tryna outshine!), but we gathered a few terror-iffic tunes that are sure to have you getting spooky with it!

    Thriller - Michael Jackson
    The man, the legend, the icon. It just isn't Halloween if you don't get your groove on to some "Thriller."

    Thriller/Heads Will Roll - Glee
    Your favorite Glee stars revamped Micheal's hit and warped it with Yeah Yeah Yeah's "Heads Will Roll" in their 2011 Superbowl special.

    Superstition - Stevie Wonder
    Creepy, crawly, and oh so fun! Nothing like a Stevie Wonder throwback to get you saying "Superstition IS the way."

    Disturbia - Rihanna
    RiRi never disappoints, and in her hit song "Disturbia" she went for a haunting look that scored her a #1 slot on Billboard's Hot 100 back in 2008. Five years later, it's like the darkness is the still the light.

    I Put a Spell on You - Screamin' Jay Hawkins
    You probably know and love this tune from the classic film Hocus Pocus, but we're giving the spine-chilling original a little love.

    Bad Romance - Lady Gaga
    She wants your loving, she wants your revenge. But she also shocked you with a dark, hypnotizing song that had an a equally daring music video.

    Britney Spears - Toxic
    Britney wowed us all in this pop gem. Who knew it would be such a great song for a spooky night?

    Ghostbusters - Ray Parker, Jr.
    If you've ever slipped the line, "Who you gonna call?" in a conversation, you have this song to thank.

    Monster Mash
    Classic, fun, and something Mom and Dad can sing along to (unfortunately).

    Blow - Kesha
    When Ke$ha opened the song with a sinister laugh, "Haha... dance," she was referring to your potential Halloween plans. Dance the haunted night away!

  • Sabrina Spellman's Outfits: Halloween Perfection Or Bad '90s Fashion?

    Posted on 10/29/2013 by baileyb2112


    The magical night of scary movies, candy apples and jack-o-lanterns is upon us. It's a night when we all remember that you are never too old to go trick-or-treating. While stuffing our faces with free candy is always incredible on its own, one of the best parts of Halloween has to be the COSTUMES!

    Whether you've had your outfit planned for weeks or you're still trying to find that perfect costume at the last minute, who better to give you some spooky ideas than the ultimate teenage witch herself, Sabrina!

    This high school sorceress certainly had plenty of memorable outfits over the years, whether she was dressed for Halloween or not. Sabrina embraced the '90s in every aspect of her style, as did her high school and college friends. But it wasn't always the best decision. Let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we? Can you tell whether these iconic looks from Sabrina the Teenage Witch are costumes or just hilariously bad '90s fashion?


    Let's start with an easy one. While Sabrina's reasons for dressing like a Pepto Bismol-pink can-can dancer are unclear, this feathery and sparkly getup definitely isn't something we would have seen in the '90s. It's a costume!


    This next look from Sabrina's later years is a little more unfortunate. While Morgan is wearing the same lovely pink Sabrina donned in the can-can costume, we have bad news: this one is no costume. These girls were just sporting traditionally bad '90s (or early 2000s) fashion...


    While Sabrina's shirt may appear to be covered in weird bats or spiders of some kind, this one doesn't have anything to do with Halloween. Just an outfit for school in the '90s!


    No ambiguity here: Sabrina and her friends are definitely dressed for Halloween. Smile and get in the spirit, guys!


    Did Sabrina and Jenny plan their Halloween costumes together this year?? Unfortunately not. Both girls simply fell victim to bad '90s fashion, and somehow ended up wearing the same strange combination of suede top and patterned pants. Sigh...


    Aahhh, here we go. Sabrina finally embraced the witch inside! We think this magically appropriate costume is perfect for Halloween.


    Yep, you guessed it...none of these cast members are in costumes. The bright colors, sheer fabrics and animal print are all wonderful parts of bad '90s fashion...and we can't get enough of it.

  • Where my were-animals at?

    Posted on 10/27/2010 by Lisa

    Are you feeling kind of riled up, kind of reckless, and maybe a little extra hairy? You're probably turning into a were-animal. Don't wait -- take the "Which Were-Animal Are You?" quiz now.

    I just took the quiz to get in touch with my own were-identity and got:

    BTW, if you haven't seen Victoria Justice's new movie The Boy Who Cried Werewolf yet, it's on TeenNick tonight at 5pm. (I'm currently watching The Boy Who Cried Were-Owl, but only in my head.)

  • Degrassi Halloween Minis!

    Posted on 10/26/2010 by Mary

    'Tis the season! For little tiny chocolate bars, and little tiny Degrassi minis, where our beloved Degrassi characters can "go there" in ways that just would not make sense otherwise.

    Last night we saw the monster moon transform Wesley into Holly J (the horror!). (Vid is over here!)

    And tonight we see Eli fend off the suspiciously overzealous advances of Clare (she's always been the kind of girl who looks for brains in a guy).

    Two more vids are coming (they're on TV during the 9pm Degrassi airings, and then online afterwards).

    Oh and check out this cute li'l pic of Munro and Aislinn behind the scenes at the shoot. Awww/ewww.

    Posted on 10/25/2010 by Lisa

    This halloween candy quiz just told me I'm a blue gummy spider, so if you see a blue gummy spider anywhere this week, DON'T EAT IT. (It might be me.)
