Effectively Creepy and Funny!
28 February 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

In the third episode of the second season of Simpsons, we get to witness their first Halloween. This episode is an episode of three shorts and each one is unique to their own. Each short is really creepy and sometimes a little funny. I liked how Marge, at the start of the episode, said this was not for kids. I also like the guest voice talent in James Earl Jones.

In this episode, "Treehouse of Horror," Lisa and Bart are swapping stories in the treehouse and these stories involve the Simpsons moving into an old haunted house, them getting picked up by aliens whom the Simpsons believe they are going to eat them, and an interpretation of Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven.

Overall, this is a very good episode that has some bone-chilling moments. It may not be as funny as past episodes and it still is, but I would not expect that in a Halloween-centered episode. I also liked the last line of Homer's. That was really funny. I rate this episode 9/10.
