Trivia

Orson Welles narrates ever-stranger sound effects until his sound effects man walks out on him. This is a homage to the radio program A Prairie Home Companion (2006), where Garrison Keillor often works calls for outlandish effects into his narratives in order to show off the versatility of sound effects man Tom Keith.

Goofs

Most of the school kids are gathered on and around the basketball courts, in the panned out shot of the school grounds, But in the very next shot, when Bart's walking up to the school bullies with the Golem, they're now all gathered around on the grass. See more »

Much Better
6 March 2007 | by tfmgamesSee all my reviews

OK... This episode was much, much better than the previous episode. I don't go much on Halloween episodes, but this one is one of the best and out of the 18 and thats pretty good.

The first story was a bit silly, but it did have the funniest part out of the 3, the Dr. Phil scene.

The second story, I really liked it. It was different, and it really worked. There wasn't really any real funny bits, but it was really well done.

The third story, (there was an add in the middle of it, it kind of killed it) but it was good. I liked the World War I bit, with Grampa.

In conclusion: from best to worse; 1: Married to the Blob (Because of the Dr. Phil bit) 2: You Got to Know When to Golem (It was well written) 3: The Day the Earth Stood Stupid (The ad spoiled it, it also felt like it wen't for too long.)

Ironicly it is in the same order as the episode.

Anyway a 7/10 for the whole episode. Really well done.
