Halloween is still a day away, but TODAY’s anchors got into their holiday getups bright and early Friday morning — and their group effort was totally nuts!

Yes, the Today Show gang showed up as Charles Schulz’s “Peanuts” gang for this year’s celebration.

Al Roker, who offered a mysterious tease of his costume Thursday, suited up as everyone’s favorite beleaguered protagonist Charlie Brown.

Or, as he put it, “I’m actually Charlie James Brown!”

Here’s hoping he gets more than a rock if he goes trick-or-treating later.

As for Matt Lauer, he tapped into his feminine side for the holiday — as he’s done before (and before that … and, you get the idea). This time he dressed up and the comic’s snarkiest kid, Lucy.

Savannah Guthrie channeled Charlie Brown’s yellow-haired, Linus-loving little sister, Sally.

And, of course, where there’s Sally, her “Sweet Baboo” — played to perfection by a blanket-clutching Carson Daly — can’t be far behind.

Natalie Morales decked out as the intellectual Marcie, while Tamron Hall took on the role of Marcie’s athletic BFF Peppermint Patty.

Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford represented Team Animal as beloved duo Snoopy and Woodstock, respectively.

And Dylan Dryer really got into the weather by catching the breeze as Charlie Brown’s kite!

Finally, our pal and former TODAY anchor Meredith Vieira stopped by and rounded out the “Peanuts” family as the dirty, dusty and downright lovable Pig Pen.

Good grief! What a group.
