Storyline

In Bartificial Intelligence, Bart falls into a coma after trying to jump into a swimming pool off a window ledge. Dr. Hibbert says that this coma is permanent, so the Simpsons get a robot for a son. Bart wakes up, only to be abandoned by Homer. He stays with some robots and becomes a robot himself, able to destroy the robot that replaced him. In Survival of the Fattest, Mr. Burns invites a bunch of people, including Homer, to a hunting party. But it turns into World's Most Dangerous Game when Burns starts killing everyone he can with his gun. Homer stays alive and Marge defeats Burns and Smithers with a frying pan. In I've Grown a Costume on Your Face, a witch turns Springfield residents into the costumes they were wearing at a party. Lisa, who is Albert Einstien, tries to solve everything. She finds that Maggie can turn them back to normal, being a witch. No one wants to be normal again, but Maggie turns everyone into pacifiers. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Homer suggesting they make the robot's head explode using the phrase "this statement is a lie" is a reference to the episode "I, Mudd" of the original Star Trek, in which Kirk and Harry Mudd defeat a robot with that phrase. See more »

Not the best of the Treehouse Series, but not bad either
8 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Treehouse of Horror series in the Simpsons show tells 3 horror-inspired tales in time for Halloween each year.

"Bartificial Intelligence" has a comatose Bart placed in a hospital and his position in the family filled by a robot in a riff of A.I. Bart exacts his revenge in a bloody and funny way. There is a mini spoof of The Exorcist right after this.

"Survival of the Fattest" is the best of these three tales. It has Burns hunting the Simpsons characters on his property similar to The Most Dangerous Game. The highlight is when Burns kills Apu who laughs and says, "You cannot kill a Hindu." He is then reincarnated as a rabbit only to get stuck in a bear trap and beg Jesus for help.

"I've Grown a Costume on your Face" has everyone in Springfield turned into their Halloween costumes by a witch and only Maggie can break the spell. This one was only about 3 minutes long and ended abruptly with a mediocre resolution.

Bottom Line: Not the best of the Treehouse series.

Rating: 5.5/10
