One of the best Halloween episodes
11 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This Halloween start with Marge coming out telling the us the viewers again that Halloween is even more scary then last year and tells the people to put there kids to bed

Homer watching horror movie and two older kids come to knock on the door and Homer gives them candy, so they won't egg the house, but they still do anyway.

Then Bart and Lisa come with of sweets and Bart, Homer and Lisa don''t waist no time and then Marge tells them if you eat to much candy to have nightmares.

Later that night all 3 have nightmares. Lisa as nightmare, when family have go on Holiday, where Homer buys Monkey paw that grant 4 wishes as Lisa wish peach in world then Aliens are back again.

This absolutely hilarious, I could stop laughing in this story as Lisa wish Peace, Homer says Lisa that very selfish of you" classic line. Great story.

After the nightmare Lisa goes to sleep with Bart who also end up having a nightmare.

This Bart as magic powers and can do anything wants and everyone knows about it and scared of him and until it turns homer in Jack in Box and then come really friends and give homer is body back.

One best Hallowen story ever told, i loved it really funny.

They both end up in bed with Marge and Homer, then Homer as dream that Mr Burns fires him and then he get a gravedigger job, while is resting and Mr burns looking for brain and then Homer and takes him and cut in brain open and insert in the robot which turns out to be just like Homer then give brain back homer, then kick the robot only for it to fall on to Mr Burns and is get stuck underneath and Smithers has to thing to do is stick Mr Burns is head on to Homer, Homer wakes find it all a dream or was it?

This was great spoof of Frankenstein and was was really funny.

Halloween Episode not to be missed 10 out 10
