Nick or Treat! was an interactive children's game show block that aired every Halloween in between Nick shows. The show was shot at Nickelodeon Studios.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The contestant was a kid on the phone. To start the game, he/she was shown a computer-generated neighborhood with six houses to get prizes from. The houses, by number, were as follows:

  1. Coff Inn
  2. Bad Manor
  3. Estate of Shock
  4. Dark Chateau
  5. Quivering Heights
  6. Rotten Acres

The contestant then had 40 seconds to go to as many houses as possible and hopefully get the prizes. The contestant had to say what house they wanted to go to by number, and press the matching number on the phone to open the door. While the contestant "ran" to each house (the picture zoomed in on the chosen house), obstacles, such as ghosts or witches, would be in the way. Some houses had a lead character from Aaahh!!! Real Monsters (either Ickis, Oblina, Krumm, or the Gromble), saying that they didn't have any prizes for the contestant if that house didn't have a prize. However, the other houses did have prizes in them, including Aaahh!!! Real Monsters merchandise (including the namesake video game by Sega or a VHS tape by Sony Wonder), a Sega Genesis video game and gaming system, Playskool Cool Tools, a new television, and the Nickelodeon Grab Bag (an assortment of gifts from various shows, and the show's biggest prize). The proportions of the monsters and prizes changed from game to game.

Generally, contestants were able to go to two or three houses before time expired.
