The first Simpsons Halloween
11 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The first Halloween Simpsons Homer saying he loves Halloween and he is about scary Lisa and Bart in the tree house before it dose, Lisa and Bart tell each other scary story's.

The first story is Bad Dream House Where the Simpson's move into a haunted House and soon learn why the house was really cheap as it haunted and while they stay the night, strange things start to happen, like blood on walls and everyone trying kill everyone.

This story was great spoof of The Amityville Horror and also find it its really funny when Maggie head turns around just like The Exocist.

The second story is Hungry and the Damned The Simpsons are in the back garden and they abducted by Aliens with one eye and they hear they are gust Aliens feed them the best food, while Lisa thing otherwise and find out that making them fat so they could eat them but that was not true after all and makes on the Aliens, so Aliens send the Simpsons back to Earth.

They had good funny jokes in this story and it not as good as the first story but did like the away the Aliens look, scary for cartoon but not really scary.

Back in Treehouse Lisa reads Edgar Allan Poe's classic tale of horror We see as the Narrator , Marge as Lenore and Bart as the raven.

I did not find that story that funny at all but okay but I did like the end of episode, at the end of episode Homer says he hates Halloween because kids story's scared him.

Really good Simpsons Halloween episode.
