Halloween Spirit

In Trick Or Treat,Ponch and Jon are on patrol on Halloween. They chase a speeding van that was carrying 13 black cats. When it stops, they all ran away in front of Ponch.

The CHP Central is on a Halloween spirit.Grossie shows up with a jack-o- lantern that's supposed to look like Getraer.On the streets, Ponch stops at a store to fill his saddlebag with candy, an angry father blames Ponch for making his kid run away when Ponch told him he'd put handcuffs on him.After a hobgoblin broadcast, Ponch and Jon find two women trying to steal a street sign. They convince them to forget about the scavenger hunt and get invited to a party.That night, a woman dressed as a ghost robs a deli and Ponch and Jon chase her. Ponch has to tend to a ghost caused accident and she gets away. Ponch and Jon find a kid who had his candy stolen and Ponch offers them some of his.

Later, Ponch and Jon check out the local "haunted" house for the missing kid. After a while, they find him in the kitchen.After a third hobgoblin broadcast, Jon notices a woman stealing candy. They chase her to her house where they find out she's just looking for her engagement ring. Jon finds it in her own candy bowl.Back on the streets, Ponch and Jon chase the ghost again. They catch them in the end.

This is definitely one of the best episodes of CHiPs of all time.This was an enjoyable one especially after having the spirit of Halloween among the CHiP officers at CHP Central.
