Trivia

The episode 'Smart and Smarter' in 2004 dealt with Maggie's intelligence, but some earlier episodes like this one had subtle hints she is smart; when Homer is in the third dimension trying to alert the family, Maggie looks around and shakes the shell to see if he is in there. See more »

Goofs

The aliens, Kang and Kodos, are shown hitchhiking. They sport a destination sign reading "EARTH CAPITAL". It *could* be attributed to English presumably being their second language, but the word they wanted was "CAPITOL". See more »

Best Treehouse of Horror episode!
25 July 2019 | by kennyk1995See all my reviews

This is a truly great episode. Grew up watching it end it was absolutely scary and enjoyable. Years later it is still one of the best Simpsons episodes. Each of the three segments are truly unique. You will really enjoy each one of them.
