McDonald’s Confirms Halloween Happy Meal Pails Are Back for 2022

With rumors circulating online in recent weeks, McDonald’s officially announced today that their iconic Halloween Happy Meal pails – lovingly named McBoo, McPunk’n, and McGoblin – will be back this month for the first time in six years.

The trick or treat pails, which first debuted 1986 as a fun way to serve a Happy Meal, will return to participating McDonald’s restaurants nationwide from October 18 through Halloween, October 31, while supplies last.

Though it has been six years since the pails were last been seen on menus, their spirit has very much been kept alive thanks to loyal and nostalgic fanbase.

McBoo, McPunk’n, and McGoblin will each be available in three different designs, all of which you can see below.
