On the annual spooktacular Halloween special, Bart and Lisa are transported to a demon-filled alternate universe after Bart reads a set of Aramaic symbols he finds on the underside of his desk; Moe's "Clockwork Orange"-style gang is disrupted when Dum (Homer) falls for a girl (Marge) who wants him to give up the thug life; and, in an homage to "The Others," the Simpsons are visited by their former Tracey Ullman-era versions of themselves.

The "sex view blockers" in the segment "A Clockwork Yellow" are a reference Eyes Wide Shut
(1999) where foreground actors were digitally added to obscure some sex acts by Warner Bros. for the film's US release. Kubrick had final cut privilege on his films and had already approved a final cut of the film shortly before his death, but the film was given an NC-17 rating by the MPAA while he was contractually obligated to obtain an R-rating or lower. The digitally added foreground actors were added to avoid making any changes to the edits of the film. See more
In the segment about Moe's "Clockwork Orange"-style gang of thugs, Moe convinces police officers Lenny and Carl to rejoin the gang for one more job. Moe pulls off his bowler hat along with two more bowlers on his head and says, "I still have your bowler hats." But when the gang goes out dressed in their old thug clothes, Carl is wearing a beret instead of his bowler that Moe gave him. See more
