"Terror Tales of the Park" is the fourth episode of Season Three (and forty-fourth episode overall) of Regular Show and the first Halloween special of the series. It first aired on October 10, 2011.

Synopsis

Mordecai, Rigby and the other groundskeepers tell each other scary stories.

Plot

First, Pops tells a story about a doll who likes to draw on people's faces. Mordecai, Rigby, Skips, Muscle Man, and Hi Five Ghost are displeased with Pops' not-so-scary tale. Pops remains oblivious to this fact, and states that Percy's scariest trait was his "unusual desire to mark on things." This leaves Muscle Man to claim that Pops' story was lame.

Muscle Man then tells a story about crashing cars into the crash pit. Upon finishing the story, Rigby tells him that it wasn't any better than Pops' story, which leads Muscle Man to challenge Rigby to tell a better story.

Rigby tells a story about being turned into a house by an evil wizard, after egging his house. Once the story is over, Muscle Man calls the story weak and Rigby surprises everyone by turning into the said wizard, breaking the fourth wall as he wishes the audience a happy halloween.
