McDonald’s just announced the return of the iconic Happy Meal Halloween pails.

“We heard you loud and clear… if spooky season doesn’t include McDonald’s Halloween Pails, then you don’t want it,” Mickey D officials quipped.

The trio of pails, McBoo, McPunk’n and McGoblin, first debuted in 1986.

Guests who want one of the nostalgic pails can order a Happy Meal at participating restaurants from Oct. 18-31.

“They may have vanished for a while... but that didn’t stop you from finding clever ways to keep their spooky spirit alive – from potting plants in them to using them as OOTD accessories,” officials said in a press release.

The last time the pails were seen was in 2016 when they had a “Charlie Brown” theme.
