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 go trick or treating. Many of these costumes are icons or celebrities from 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!"
