The series originally aired as a pilot in October 1983 as "Trick Or Treat" starring Barnard Hughes. Apparently, this was before it became "Tales From The Darkside". The original broadcast wasn't intended as a episode of it until the "Tales From The Darkside" intro was tacked on future repeats of it.
