McDonald’s says, “We heard you loud and clear,” and has announced that its beloved Halloween Happy Meal pails will return for this spooky Halloween season.

This morning on Joel and Maryann in the Morning it was the topic of discussion as we reminisced about all the fast food nostalgia lately, including McDonald’s new adult Happy Meals being offered with all of its iconic characters like Hamburgler, Mayor McCheese, and Grimace.

Not only do these throw back buckets hold your meal, but the pails with a ghost-faced character called McBoo, a Jack-O-Lantern called McPunk’n, and a green-faced pail named McGoblin can also come in handy for hauling candy come trick-or-treat time.

For the collectors out there, the boo buckets are available with three versions of each character up for grabs while supplies last between October 18 and October 31.

Though they date back to 1986, it’s the first time in six years the buckets will be made available.
