The TODAY anchors always dress to impress on Halloween.

While we’re still a few weeks away from revealing their Halloween costumes, if history has taught us anything, it’s that their 2022 appearance is bound to be incredible.

Remember when Jenna Bush Hager and Savannah Guthrie stepped onto the fake soccer field as cheerleaders for the Dallas Cowboys? Or the days when Al Roker channeled his inner superhero and dressed up as Batman?

If not, don’t worry! Refresh your memory by scrolling through this list of TODAY’s very best Halloween costumes over the years.

We’ve got them all: Jenna, Savannah, Al, Hoda Kotb, Dylan Dreyer, Carson Daly, Sheinelle Jones, Craig Melvin, and Willie Geist, along with past anchors Kathie Lee Gifford and Meredith Viera.

Whether you’re looking for a clever costume idea (for yourself or with your best friends) or just love all things Halloween, you’ve come to the right place. So, put on some Halloween tunes and let’s reminisce, shall we?

Let’s say that Carson and Savannah, who dressed up as Danny and Sandy from “Grease,” merge as “rama lama lama ka dinga da dinga dong.”

Nobody – and we mean nobody – puts Willie and Jenna in a corner. They really impressed us by re-enacting Baby and Johnny’s last dance scene in ‘Dirty Dancing’.

The TODAY gang went out of their way to bring their favorite 80s music and movie icons to life.

Willie dressed up as the ultimate school skipper, Ferris Bueller. Peter Alexander and Jenna clearly felt the need for speed when they dressed up as Goose and Maverick from “Top Gun”. A harbinger of the film’s second life, wouldn’t you say?

Kathie Lee and Carson both take the stage solo: she went as the Material Girl herself and he went as Bruce Springsteen, New Jersey’s very own Bruce Springsteen.

Good morning, my neighbors! Craig took us back to 1988 when “Coming to America” ​​was released.

Look at Savannah, all dressed up as 80s trendsetter Cyndi Lauper. To see? Girls really just want to have fun!

Great Shot! Al and Dylan were the perfect duo as Doc and Marty McFly’s costumes from “Back to the Future.”

Sheinelle is simply the best (better than the rest) as the legendary Tina Turner.

Finally, Hoda as none other than Elton John. The feathers! The sparkling shades! Everything!


The Opry takes over TODAY! The anchors went full for the country in 2017.

We hardly recognize Al dressed as country legend Willie Nelson anymore.

This is something you don’t see every day: “Kenny Rogers” walking the streets with “Billy Ray Cyrus”, aka Carson in costume.


The decade that brought us Beanie Babies, Tamagotchis and dial-up internet is the inspiration behind these 90s costumes.

Al played Steve Urkel from the ’90s sitcom ‘Family Matters’.

Hasta la vista, honey! Carson is all decked out as the Terminator and also rides a motorcycle, just like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Our guess: he’ll be back!

Hoda and Kathie Lee drove us crazy when they dressed up as the hosts of “Regis and Kathie Lee”. But in a super fun twist, Kathie Lee switched places with her former co-host.

Charlie, TODAY’s Puppy with a Purpose (a service dog in training), got his own Halloween makeover as a real Beanie Baby.


Good grief! The TODAY anchors went crazy, we mean “Peanuts,” when they dressed up as characters from Charles Schultz’s beloved Charlie Brown comic.

Carson is almost unrecognizable because Linus and Savannah are so cute dressed as Sally, Charlie Brown’s starry-eyed sister.

Hoda and Kathie Lee are perfect with their Snoopy and Woodstock costumes. Now, where’ the Red Baron?


Live from TODAY, it’s Saturday night! The TODAY crew pays tribute to the iconic late night comedy sketch show by dressing up as some of the SNL’s most memorable characters.

Savannah, Jenna and Meredith have recreated SNL’s “Mom Jeans,” a sketch that debuted way back in 2003. Time flies!

Hoda and Kathie Lee cast as Garth Algar and Wayne Campbell from ‘Wayne’s World’. Party on, Hoda and Kathie Lee.

Here are Hoda and Kathie Lee as the Flintstones, a modern Stone Age family. Well, technically only Kathie Lee is a Flintstone – Wilma to be exact. Hoda is dressed as Wilma’s always pragmatic neighbor, Betty Rubble.

We pity the fool! Last, but certainly not least, here is Al as the incomparable Mr. T from “The A Team.”


The TODAY show stopped Halloween in 2012 after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. The year before, however, it was positively royal. To celebrate the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, TODAY anchors have been throwing themselves into their British best days.

We especially love Hoda and Kathie Lee dressed as Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice. Their fascinators are, well, fascinating.

What a great transformation! Savannah really rocked us when she showed up as Prince Charles, the future King of Britain.


Luck? Lucy? She’s here. Well, Hoda does. Kathie Lee went as her neighbor and partner-in-crime, Ethel Mertz.

Arriving in the nick of time to save the world (or at least Halloween), Al is dressed as Superman.


Way back in a square far, far away, there were a bunch of TODAY anchors showing their love for “Star Wars”. Thanks to a partnership with Lucasfilm, the TODAY gang has gotten an intergalactic makeover, and we can’t help but get stars in our eyes just looking at these photos.

The power is strong with Hoda and Kathie Lee aka Yoda and C-3PO.

Al, decked out as a riotous rebel, Han Solo seems poised to board the Millennium Falcon and save the galaxy from Lord Vader.


In 2008, the TODAY anchors got their happily ever after — somehow.

Kathie Lee and Hoda spent hours in the makeup chair turning into The Big Bad Wolf and Little Red Riding Hood. Oh, grandmother, these are fantastic costumes!

It’s the truth, we swear! Meredith is fantastic in this Pinocchio costume and Al runs as The Gingerbread Man.


The monsters really came out in 2007.

Al gives us vampire vibes in this costume, made to look like grandpa from ‘The Munsters’.


Yes Matie! What is a pirate’s favorite letter? You would think it’s the ‘c’, but it really is the arrrr. Corny dad jokes aside, Al as Davy Jones from “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” is nothing short of brilliant.


Holy superheroes! Look at that Batmobile!

Again, the trophy goes to Al for this Batman costume, which looks like it came straight out of the movie.
