It seems daytime television was bit by the '90s bug this Halloween. 

Today kicked off the morning Halloween nostalgia with a nod to TRL. Co-host Carson Daly returned to his faux MTV digs on the NBC set while donning a rendition of his TRL threads, complete with a black manicure and lengthy sideburns.

Following suit with the bistakguc theme, Daly hosted a countdown of the notable moments of the decade, including The Terminator, Pulp Fiction, and Demi Moore's pregnant Vanity Fair cover—and all of Today was included. 

Tamron Hall and Willie Geist got into character as Uma Thurman's Mia Wallace and John Travolta's Vincent Vega from the Quentin Tarantino classic to perform the signature twist from the plaza.Al Roker put on his best Steve Urkel impression while it didn't take much for Savannah Guthrie to get into character for Moore's magazine spread.

Daly switched gears and hopped on a motorcycle to play The Terminator, but there wasn't anyone more in character than Kathie Lee Gifford who channeled her legendary former co-host Regis Philbin to portray her time on LIVE! two decades ago. Her daytime sidekick, Hoda Kotb, teased her hair and threw on a yellow power suit to resemble Gifford in all her '90s glory. 

Famous for flaunting tons of skin in years past, Matt Lauer kept covered up while channeling Jerry Seinfeld and his puffy shirt from that interview on Today

Jenna Bush Hager topped off the Halloween bonanza by dressing like her famous grandmother, former first lady Barbara Bush, to do the macarena. Don't forget about puppy Charlie—he did his best Beanie Baby impression.

Over on Good Morning America, the co-hosts channeled yet another reviving '90s trend—Pokémon. 

Joined by a bevy of costumed kids, co-host Robin Roberts lead the pack to catch 'em all Pokémon Go style. Lurking around the GMA set were plenty of Pokémon and celebrities dressed in costume ready to be captured, including one giant Michaelchu. 

Dancing With the Stars pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy and fiancée Peta Murgatroyddid a twirl as The Joker and Harley Quinn while co-host Lara Spencer showed off her best Hamilton impression.
