They call it a Happy Meal for a reason, my friends—and this news is bound to make you smile.
McDonald’s casually dropped the news this week that every kid’s favorite fast food dinner is about to be served up the old-fashioned way: in a nostalgic plastic Halloween bucket.
That’s right, Boo Buckets are baaaack!

McPunk’n, McBoo, and McGoblin (that’s right, they have names!) will make their spooky season appearance starting October 18th at participating McDonald’s locations for as long as supplies last.
McDonald’s first introduced the pails back in 1986, making them the holy grail of trick-or-treating vessels for children of the ’90s. Collecting fun-size candy bars and tiny packages of Sixlets from your neighbors was just a little more satisfying when you had one of these clutched in your little costumed hand.
Buzz about Boo Buckets is all over social media, ranging from trips down memory lane and TikTok videos featuring new uses for the pails.
Do our mom’s homemade McDonald’s costumes and proof of original boo bucket love allow my brother and I a boo bucket hookup in TX?? Lol! Our mom was the best at Halloween costumes pic.twitter.com/V819fWRbnS

Now that we former kids have kids of our own, you better believe a whole bunch of us will be grabbing Halloween pails for our offspring. Maybe we’ll even share the McNuggets and fries first!
