It may not be officially Halloween yet, but the Today show and Good Morning America may have already taken home some best costume awards.

GMA brought their pop culture A-game with a series of epic and hilarious costumes, and the Today show truly brought the characters from the Peanuts cartoon to life.

“This is our Super Bowl, our Christmas, our Thanksgiving we live for this all year long!” tweeted the Today show, attributing the quote to cohost Savannah Guthrie.

The festivities then took off in full swing, with the Today show hosts revealing their get-ups as the Peanuts gang.

Natalie Morales and Tamron Hall took on Marcie and Peppermint Pattie, Al Roker was a stellar Charlie Brown, Willie Geist went as Schroeder, and Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford were Snoopy and Woodstock, with Regis Philbin as the Red Baron.

Guthrie and Carson Daly were one adorable couple as Linus and Sally, while Matt Lauer as Lucy kept up his streak of dressing up as the opposite sex for Halloween.

Today‘s own in-house pup Wrangler even got in on the action.

And last but not least, Meredith Vieira crashed the Today show’s Halloween extravaganza as an unbelievable Pig-Pen.

The GMA gang, meanwhile, got into a very different but equally impressive pop culture theme.

Robin Roberts and TJ Holmes were an incredible Cookie and Lucious Lyon duo from hit show Empire, George Stephanopoulos rocked out as Ed Sheeran, and Lara Spencer took on a favorite celebrity impersonation, Donald Trump, joking that the ratings for the episode were going to be “huge.”

Ginger Zee didn’t let her pregnancy stop her from getting in on the fun with her own over-the-top costume: The Incredible Hulk.

Sara Haines and guest Nick Lachey were picture-perfect as Barbie and Ken, and Amy Robach got to be Taylor Swift and her entire “Bad Blood” crew. Paula Faris played on Swift’s alleged feud with Katy Perry, dressing up as the pop star and refusing to watch Robach’s performance as Swift.

The GMA cast also debuted their own trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with Robach as Yoda, Spencer as (Mrs.) Chewbacca, Jesse Palmer as Poe, Holmes appearing as Finn and Zee taking on Rey and Leia.
