1986 Webster - Witchbusters

Webster is an American sitcom tv series that aired on ABC from September 16, 1983 to May 8, 1987, and in first-run syndication from September 21, 1987 to March 10, 1989. The series was created by Stu Silver. The show stars Emmanuel Lewis in the title role as a young boy who, after losing his parents, is adopted by his NFL-pro godfather, portrayed by Alex Karras, and his new socialite wife, played by Susan Clark.

Like NBC's earlier series Diff'rent Strokes, Webster featured a young African-American boy adopted by a wealthy white family. The focus was largely on how this impulsively married couple had to adjust to their new lives and sudden parenthood, but it was the congenial Webster himself who drove much of the plot.

Witchbusters is the Halloween episode from the 4th season of the series that originally aired on Oct 31, 1986. Here is the synopsis: Webster meets a lonely woman on a dare from his friends and finds out that she is not the witch they said she was. Halloween, Webster, and Diff'rent Strokes were a few of my favorite things when I was a kid in the '80s.
