Honey Boo Boo's family as zombies for Halloween You better walking deadneckognize zombie boo boo child!

Last night marked the return of everyone’s favorite redneckognizable pint-sized superstar as TLC aired the first of three Here Comes Honey Boo Boo “Holladay Special,” this one featuring the Thompson family as they prepare for (and recover from) Halloween!

The episode featured all sorts of Honey Boo Boo hi-jinx including Halloweenifying the front yard with inflatable decorations, a trip to the pumpkin patch, carving jack-o-lanterns (with a pumpkin innards fight and Uncle Poodle putting his head inside a “50 lbs at least” jack-o-lantern and not being able to get it out), a lengthy discussion about marannaise and Mama June’s mayophobia, a trip through a corn maze that resulted in Mama June having to “pop a squat” after getting lost, trick-or-treating at the Milledgeville Country Club because “Duh, that’s where the rich people live!,” and the sorting of Halloween candy — which was essentially Mama June eating samples and Honey Boo Boo filtering out all the fruits and vegetables and tossing them in the yard for the deer. (Gotta keep those deer healthy y’all!)

Here’s an excerpt clip from the episode:

Ah, but of course the most important part of the episode was… Halloween costumes! The family packed up and headed down to the (used?) costume shop where they tried on numerous hilarious outfits before each made their final, secret selections. Here is what each of the Thompson family members went as for Halloween…

Alana (Honey Boo Boo) went as a goth jester — or something like that.

Baby Kaitlyn was a hot dog

Going along with Kaitlyn’s hotdog costume, Chickadee (Anna) and Chubbs (Jessica) dressed as ketchup and mustard (In deference to Mama June’s phobia, neither went as mayonaise, though baby Kaitlyn was reported generating some of her own throughout the night.)

Sugar Bear went as a bear. Honey Boo Boo thought the costume lacking, so she went tot he kitchen and retrieved a 5-pound bag of sugar (about one pitcher of lemonade’s worth) and handed it to her pop so he could be Sugar Bear.

Poor Pumpkin (Lauryn) mishandled a car keys toss from Sugar Bear, which apparently caused some pretty serious damage to her right eye, causing her to miss out on the trick or treating festivities and costumegery.

That just leaves Mama June! After having her hair dyed blonde earlier in the episode, Sugar Bear got inspired and ordered her a costume of… Marilyn Monroe’s famous white dress from The 7-Year Itch! (You know, the one that gets blown up by a vent on the sidewalk?)

Sugar Bear was clearly moved by the vision of Mama June Monroe, leading to one of the greatest Here Comes Honey Boo Boo animated gifs of all time:

I guess we can add bears to the list (along with gentlemen) of things that prefer blondes!

Sadly, Mama June thought the outfit was too revealing and eventually opted to allow her daughters to do one of their favorite things (wrap stuff in free toilet paper) and go as “Mummy June.”

Be sure to tune in next Sunday night at 9/8c for a brand new Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Holladay Special, this time with a Thanksgiving theme! (Can you say Rednecksgiving?)

    That’s disgusting and a total disgrace not only to human kind but to marilyn monroe herself! Hefty ladies like her should NOT go as marilyn monroe..sorry.. Hate this comment if you want, but I am entitled to my opinion

  • michele

    I bet Marilyn is rolling over in her grave. Some things should not be captured on film and this is one of them.

  • Tobie

    I do not see how anybody can sit through 60 minutes of this garbage. I tried. I had enough when the kid couldn’t even pronounce mayonnaise.

  • Kay

    All of you shut the f*** up !!!! One thing this family is doing that all of you should try is loving life and enjoying family. Never heard them judge anyone, complain or not have a smile on their faces.

    • michele

      And you seem to have about as much class as they do. 🙂

      • Geniya

        She is standing up for her and that is very classy. You tried to insult Kay for standing up for June. Looks like you’re the one with no class.

        • michele

          Telling people to shut the —- up is classy? Must be part of the family.

          • Geniya

            Well you see if you happen to use a swear word in your context, when you are standing up to someone. It shows a lot more class then insulting someone for it.. You’re probably just one of many internet bullys out there because in the real world o wait you don’t have a real world.

            • michele

              That’s like calling the kettle black.

  • Star

    That family knows the meaning of true unconditional love. They’re always so happy. I love them.

    • Sandy

      Do your research on the unconditional love part. June didn’t even want her oldest daughter Anna, She let family members take her after she was born and eventually had her taken away and given to Grandmother. She only recently bribed her back home for sake of their show. Four kids from 4 different men.. she knows all about lovin’ alright…..

  • Fig

    Discussing fat family. I feel sorry for the baby..she should have been adopted out, that way she wouldnt end up like trash like the rest of the family..if they can have a show then everyone should be able to do the same since they are not famous for anything.
