Well, I'm here with another meme.
This time, as there are less days before Halloween, I decided to make another meme. This time, it's about the 10 Best Moments of The Simpsons' TreeHouse of Horror.
Selecting the best moments of the Simpsons' Halloween Specials wasn't too easy, because, especially among the first 15 seasons, there were so much I liked too much. Well, leaving aside this speech, let's start:#10: The Raven: This was one of the first Simpsons' Halloween Specials. This episode is a spoof of the tale "The Crow" by the great horror writter Edgar Allan Poe. In this adaptation, Bart is depicted as the raven, Homer finds himself in the role of the poem's lead character, while Lisa and Maggie are seraphim. Marge appears briefly as a painting of Lenore. James Earl Jones narrates. The episode then returns to the treehouse and Bart, Lisa and Maggie, who are not frightened by any of the stories. They climb down from the treehouse and sleep peacefully the whole night. Homer, on the other hand, lies in his bed terrified. As additional data, Bart seems so cute as a crow XP!
#9: Double Tie: King Homer & Attack Of The 50 Foot Eyesores: I tied both because they feature spoofs to gigantic creatures (King Kong & The 50ft Woman). Well, I'll talk about every episode:
-King Homer: This was featured in Treehouse of Horror III. Here, in a parody of King Kong, Marge joins Mr. Burns and Smithers on an expedition to Ape Island to find the legendary King Homer. After landing on the island, Mr. Burns, Smithers, and Marge stealthily approach a native tribe, but are spotted due to Marge’s hair protruding over the bushes. The villagers agree that "The blue haired woman would make a good sacrifice" and tie her to a post as an offering. The sound of drums summons King Homer. Marge is initially terrified but sees the friendly side of Homer when he is attracted to Marge's perfume and the two form a friendship. Nonetheless, Mr. Burns is determined to capture King Homer and Smithers knocks Homer unconscious with a gas bomb before being swallowed alive by a sleeping Homer. Returning to New York, the group display King Homer at the Broadway theatre. The photographers' flashes enrage King Homer, who breaks free from his restraints, squashes the reporter, eats Barney's peanuts, breaks through into the wall into a nearby theatre and eats Shirley Temple. He abducts Marge then attempts to climb the Empire State Building, but is unable to get past the second story of the building. King Homer collapses in exhaustion and Marge helpfully suggests that he eat more vegetables and fewer people. In the end, King Homer and Marge get married. The story ends with the wedding, and King Homer eating Marge's father (although Marge is not upset).
-Attack Of The 50 Foot Eyesores: One of the best moments, which was featured in “Treehouse of Horror VI”. Here, after stealing the giant donut from the statue in front of the donut shop, the statue cames alive, and it makes the other advertising statues came alive, and attack Springfield. So, in order to stop this, Homer must return the donut to the Lard Lad statue, and all Springfield people must ignore every advertising.
#8: Time & Punishment: This episode is a parody of "A Sound Of Thunder" by the great sci-fi writter Ray Bradbury. Here, after trying to fix the toaster, Homer turns it accidentally in a time machine, transporting him to the Prehistoric Age where, accidentally, he kills some creatures (including dinosaurs), making his life suffer several changes, causing time paradoxes. This episode features also Mr. Peabody & Sherman.
#7: The Island Of Dr. Hibbert: This episode is a spoof of "The Island Of Dr. Moreau" by Herbert George Wells. Here, during the vacations of he and his family in an island, after Marge was kidnapped, Homer tries to find what's happening, only for discover that the owner of the Island turned to several people (including Homer's family) in animals.
#6: The Fright To Creep And Scare Harms: This was featured in the same special like the before mentioned (Treehouse of Horror XIII). Here, after reading in the tombstone of a man named "William H. Bonney", who wished a World without firearms, Lisa convinces to the people of get rid of their firearms. However, for her misfortune, "William H. Bonney" was actually the legendary bandit Billy The Kid, who resurrected alongside another evil gunmen, who started to attack Springfield. Now, the unique hope for save the city (and the world) is Homer, who decides to travel in the time, in order to say to the Springfield people that they must use their weapons for kill the corpses of the villains, before they decide to resurrect!
#5: The Shinning: Now, a good spoof to the best horror film ever! YUP! I'm talking of "The Shining" (1980), the great horror masterpiece by Stanley Kubrick!!! Well, here, during their lounge at Mr. Burns' Mansion, Homer gets crazy because he hasn't beers and TV, making him even desiring to...KILL HIS FAMILY!!! The spoof to the scene of "Here's Johnny!!!" wasn't to creepy...IT WAS COMICAL!!! (Nice tribute and spoof to Jack Nicholson!!!)
#4: The Thing And I: One of the weirdiest moments ever. Here, the strange noises from the vault at the roof of the house, make Bart and Lisa try to investigate everything, only for discover an ugly boy similar to Bart, who was actually, his siamesse twin!!!
#3: Double-Tie: The HOmega Man & Fly VS. Fly: Both episodes were featured at the "Treehouse of Horror VIII". I'll talk about every of them:
-The HOmega Man: This episode spoofs a movie with the same title (the original film's title doesn't have a "H"). Here, by the blame of the jokes of Mayor Quimby about the French, the French Government shoots a powerful nuclear missile, which destroys Springfield, and kills several people!!! Now, Homer, depressed and happy of believing that he was the last survivor, he decided to make everything he wanted. However, some of the people turned in mutants, who now, are decided to kill Homer!!!

However, when Bart tried to use it, he discovered that he can fusion some living creatures (like he did with the cat and the dog). So, he decides to fusionate himself with a fly. However, he finishes having the body and the size of a fly, while his body and the head of the fly!!! Now, he tries to make the mutant creature enter alongside himself in order to recover his life.
#2: Bart Simpson's Dracula: This episode makes a spoof to the stories of vampires (the TRUE vampires!!! (let's be honest...Twilight is an insult to the vampire archetypes...)). Here, after visiting to Mr. Burns in his mansion, Bart turned in a vampire, who turned in vampire to his friends, and he wanted to attack Lisa!!! So, now, in order to recover Bart's sanity, Homer willtry to kill Mr. Burns, who's the true mastermind of the vampires.
And now...NUMBER #1!!!
#1: Homer 3D: YUP!!! This episode, who's the most popular among the fans, is the best Simpsons' Halloween Moment ever!!! Here, after trying to hide from Patty & Selma, Homer enters to a new dimension, where everything is...3D!!! However, there's a little problem: this universe could be destroyed accidentally; so, Bart must resuce to his father. I'll never forget the first time of seeing Homer in 3D!!!
