I didn't watch this show when it first aired, but have caught some reruns on TBS. I first caught this one earlier this year in April. Doug (Kevin James) wants to decorate his house for Halloween at the urging of his friend Deacon (Victor Williams), but Doug's live-in father-in-law Arthur (Jerry Stiller) forbids it. Arthur later has a heart attack after seeing that Doug has decorated the house for Halloween anyway. Arthur then reveals that he hates Halloween and explains why. Meanwhile, Deacon worries that his son might be gay when his son rejects a Darth Vader costume his father has purchased for him in favor of a Powerpuff Girls costume. His son had wanted to be a superhero, but Deacon did not know of any African American superheroes, and rejected Doug's idea of his son going as Shaft.
