Watch Jimmy Kimmel’s Most Hilarious Halloween Prank: Parents Stealing Candy From Their Kids

Nothing says November like children's tears

Every year there are a few surefire signs that fall is upon us: pumpkin spice lattes return, leaves begin to fall and Jimmy Kimmel gears up to convince parents to terrorize their children in the name of comedy.

The late night host — whose regular bits include feuding with Matt Damon and embarrassing random passerby — has made an annual tradition out of creating a video supercut of kids reacting to their parents when they tell them they ate all of their Halloween candy. The segment has run on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in early November every year since 2011, garnering a mixed response from the public.

But for better or worse, the tear-inducing — but often hilarious — prank is here to stay.

Watch all five of the past videos below.

2011: The first one

2012: “I never want to go trick-or-treating again”

2013: The one where all the candy was in the laundry room

2014: The one with the drawers

2015: “I wanted to try Skittles”
