Has McDonald’s finally heard the cries from Gen X’ers and Millennials for the return of Halloween Happy Meal Pails? Rumor has it that they have and we just might get our beloved Mcdonalds Halloween buckets for the 2022 spooky season!

Mcdonalds Halloween Buckets is reporting that a site called Nightmare Nostalgia seems to have the inside info about McDonald’s bringing back its beloved Halloween Boo Buckets.

Nightmare Nostalgia shared what looks like a leaked calendar page of McDonald’s events, listing the Halloween buckets arriving on Oct. 18 and running through Halloween, Oct. 31. But without confirmation from McDonald’s, this is just speculation.

Back in 1986, McDonald’s created Halloween-themed bucket happy meals, which can could also be used as a trick-or-treat pail. Brilliant idea! The three original designs were named McBoo, McPunk’n, and McGoblin. They all looked similar with jack-o-lantern faces. A few years later, a different designs were added to the mix. According to, the buckets haven’t been available since 2016, so a come back would be such a fun thing to have this year!

Hopefully we can get a yes or no from McDonald’s soon for all of the anxious retro fans!
