What are you supposed to be?

"Can't you guys tell? I'm the rapping paper!"

During Halloween, the characters dress up in costumes, in which they often engage in Halloween-related activities. Many of these costumes are icons or celebrities, most of which were popular/created the 1970s, '80s, and '90s, leaving most of the other characters unable to identify who a particular character is supposed to be dressed as.

This is put quite frankly by The King of Town in Halloween Potion-ma-jig, in which he says, "I wish you'd dress up as something I could recognize! Pop culture... mumble grumble!"
