Underfist: Halloween Bash is a spin-off of the popular Cartoon Network original series, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. The special features five recurring characters from Billy and Mandy in lead roles, as they form a group to fight evil. Although this was aired as a special on its own, Underfist could have become a series but most of the Billy & Mandy staff had already departed and Cartoon Network opted not to greenlight it.

While Hoss Delgado and Skarr were overpowered by a giant chocolate bar with lollipop arms and 3 candy skeletons and Fred Fredburger spelling his name before helping them. A Lion randomly appears out of nowhere and attacks Skarr.

After Hoss, Skarr, Fred and Jeff fought off the first wave of the candy army. Hoss said that property damage was kept to a minimum when the whole neighborhood was almost completely destroyed. Hoss then states that he can finally go home and finish his novel and that he was eating one instead of writing it.
