Happy Halloween! In several countries Google will run a neat and scary interactive doodle for Halloween on the homepage. Last year Google recorded a video outside Google’s headquarters in Mountain View for the Halloween doodle, this year it’s a Haunted House. As you can see in the video below the doodle consists of several effects, clicking on the doors of the haunted house brings up some scary monsters and in the trash can at the left there’s even a black cat. The skeleton next to the door with number 13 is also animated just like the black spider and the black bird.

A working copy but also all the doodles Google placed for Halloween since 1999 plus all the logos from YouTube and Orkut can be found here. Like said above last year Google recorded a video for Halloween and in 2010 Google made a doodle with Scooby Doo. In 2009 Google went just as far by editing the Robots.txt with some special Halloween lines next to the animated logo that year. The logo from 2008 is also special because that one had a Triforce Easter Egg in it which was later removed.
