On Sunday, Oct. 7, don't miss these frightfully funny Halloween-themed animated episodes, and find out what the fan-favorite characters are wearing for Halloween:

THE CLEVELAND SHOW - (7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT) - "Escape from Goochland"

Donna dons a sexy Halloween costume that gets her in trouble with the cops, and Roberta and Cleveland Jr. play pranks around Stoolbend when they dress up as Donna and Cleveland. Meanwhile, Cleveland and the gang visit their rival high school in Goochland for the annual football game, but when they have a run-in with Cleveland's arch-nemesis, Chet Butler (guest voice Rob Riggle), they must find a way to escape their enemy's home turf. Cleveland Brown, Jr.: "I was gonna go as a cupcake, but I was afraid I would eat myself. So I am going as a salad but might end up tossing myself. Holidays, huh?"

THE SIMPSONS (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) - "Treehouse of Horror XXIII"

In the opener of the 23rd annual "Treehouse of Horror," THE SIMPSONS goes back to ancient times when a Mayan Homer and Marge are witnesses to the prediction by ancient calendar makers that 2012 will be the end of the world. In "The Greatest Story Ever Holed," the first of three spine-chilling stories, the Springfield Subatomic Supercollider creates a black hole that terrorizes the city, sucking up everything in its path. Then, in "UNnormal Activity" the Simpsons install cameras all over the house when things start to go bump in the night, and Marge discovers it may have to do with an unholy pact she made some years prior. In the final thrilling tale, "Bart & Homer's Excellent Adventure," Bart time-travels back to 1974 to buy a comic book at cover price, but inadvertently disrupts Homer and Marge's courtship and becomes the son of Marge and Art Ziff (guest voice Jon Lovitz) in present-day Springfield. Homer Simpson: "I am going to dress as a sober father taking my kids around, but secretly I'll be loaded to the gills." Marge Simpson: "And little does Homer know I'll be switching apple cider for his Duff."

BOB'S BURGERS - (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) - "Full Bars"

The Belcher kids break their Halloween tradition when they ditch their usual trick-or-treating route and venture off to Kingshead Island, a posh neighborhood known for distributing full-sized candy bars. Meanwhile, Bob and Linda attend Teddy's annual "Black and Orange" party. Bob Belcher: "Every Halloween, I put on a Hawaiian shirt and boom: Instant 'Magnum P.I.' It's not just the moustache. I really look like Tom Selleck. Everyone agrees. Why are you laughing?"

FAMILY GUY - (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) - "Ratings Guy"

The Griffins are selected to have their television viewing habits monitored. But Peter takes his participation too far when he tries to control the airwaves. Featuring the guest voices of J.J. Abrams (FRINGE), Jon Hamm ("Mad Men"), Dick Wolf ("Law & Order: SVU"), Mark Burnett ("Survivor") and Sandra Bernhard ("The L Word"). Stewie Griffin: "Whatever has the most glitter. Then I'm going to wait in the bushes and spray the kids who don't compliment my outfit with a garden hose." Meg Griffin: "I'm going as a ghost, because I'm going to kill myself before then." Chris Griffin: "I'm going as a serving of mashed potatoes."

AMERICAN DAD - (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) - "Killer Vacation"

A tropical vacation for the Smith family turns out to be anything but relaxing when Stan must kill the resort's activities director, whom the CIA insists is an ex-war criminal. Then, Hayley and Jeff try to rekindle their fading romance, while Roger, as his latest persona, Abigail Lemonparty, falls for an older gentleman. Roger Smith: "Honey Boo Boo. Obviously. B**** isn't the only one who can holler for a dollar." Stan Smith: "I'm not revealing my costume until October 31st. But I'll give you a hint. He's a super funny and successful British comedian whose name rhymes with icky smurf face..."

Tune in Tuesday, Oct. 30 for another night of bloodcurdling comedy:

RAISING HOPE - (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) - "Don't Ask, Don't Tell Me What To Do"

It's "Gay Christmas," a.k.a. Halloween, and Sabrina (Shannon Woodward) asks Jimmy (Lucas Neff) to hang out with her gay best friend and his partner. But first, Jimmy asks Burt (Garret Dillahunt) to do some recon by spending time at the local gay bar. When Burt keeps going back to the bar, Virginia (Martha Plimpton) wonders if he's enjoying his time there a little too much and tracks him down in costume on Halloween night.

BEN AND KATE - ( 8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) - "Scaredy Kate"

Kate (Dakota Johnson) gets invited to her hot neighbor's Halloween party, so BJ (Lucy Punch) tries to help Kate break free and be someone completely out-of-character for the night. Meanwhile, Ben (Nat Faxon) and Tommy (Echo Kellum) decide to stay home and hand out candy to the trick-or-treaters in hopes that they'll meet some hot moms, but the night takes a turn when Tommy unknowingly eats some of BJ's "candy" from Amsterdam, and Kate bonds with Will (guest star Geoff Stults), a single father.

NEW GIRL - (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) - "Halloween"

Jess (Zooey Deschanel) gets a job as a zombie at a haunted house, but is more frightened of her changing feelings towards Sam (guest star David Walton). Then, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece (Hannah Simone) are (unfortunately) perfectly matched in the costumes they're wearing, while Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Shelby (guest star Kali Hawk) are worlds apart in theirs. Also, Nick (Jake Johnson) gets a visit from a former college crush (guest star Maria Thayer) who shows her affection in a scary way.

THE MINDY PROJECT - (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) - "Halloween"

Josh (guest star Tommy Dewey) invites Mindy (Mindy Kaling) to a Halloween party, and Mindy stresses out about finding the perfect costume to impress him. Meanwhile, Danny (Chris Messina) and Jeremy (Ed Weeks) leave work early to finally take their driver's license tests, much to Danny's embarrassment.
