All-New Halloween Spooktacular!" is the sixth episode of the American television miniseries WandaVision, based on Marvel Comics featuring the characters Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch and Vision. It follows the couple as they try to conceal their powers while living an idyllic suburban life in the town of Westview, New Jersey. The episode is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise. It was written by Chuck Hayward and Peter Cameron, and directed by Matt Shakman.

Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen reprise their respective roles as Vision and Wanda Maximoff from the film series, starring alongside Teyonah Parris, Evan Peters, Randall Park, Kat Dennings, and Kathryn Hahn. Shakman joined the series in August 2019. The episode pays homage to sitcoms of the late 1990s to early 2000s, specifically Malcolm in the Middle, and also to general Halloween-themed television episodes; the main characters dress in Halloween costumes based on the costumes from their appearances in Marvel Comics. Filming took place in the Atlanta metropolitan area, including at Pinewood Atlanta Studios, and in Los Angeles.

"All-New Halloween Spooktacular!" was released on Disney+ on February 12, 2021. Critics enjoyed the episode's comic book-accurate Halloween costumes and Peters' performance, and highlighted a scene between Vision and Hahn's character Agnes.
