Halloween 2018: Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest parody classic TV characters on 'Live!'

It's "Live!" with Laverne & Shirley!

Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest totally transformed into iconic TV characters of years past for this year's go-big-or-go-home Halloween episode.

In addition to parodying the beloved '70s sitcom, the duo also tackled TV classics including "Saved by the Bell," "Friends" and "I Love Lucy," for which Ripa's husband Mark Consuelos made a dapper Ricky.

A particular highlight was Seacrest as the magical genie of "I Dream of Jeannie" -- the man knows how to rock a bikini top!

Outdoing Kelly and Ryan's costumes from last year was a tough task: In 2017, the costume theme was "biggest pop culture moments of the year" -- characters from "Wonder Woman," "Stranger Things" and "Handmaid's Tale" all fit the bill.

And of course we can't forget (it's burned into our minds) Ryan and Kelly dressing up as... each other.

No one can say ABC cuts corners for Halloween.
