Jimmy Kimmel’s Annual Halloween Prank Left Children Crying, Cursing, And Threatening Their Parents

Jimmy Kimmel once again asked parents to pull the ultimate Halloween prank: pretend to eat their children’s hard-earned candy, and record their devastated faces as they struggle with the news.

This is the third year Kimmel has implored his viewers to pull the treat-less trick, so he was predictably flooded with submissions as parents rushed to breach the unwritten parent-child trust contract in favor of a few seconds of network TV glory. It may have taken a few extra days to wade through all of the clips, but the resulting compilation does not disappoint: much like the Halloween candy they think they’re being deprived of, the kids’ reactions range from very sweet to extremely sour.
