10 Simpsons Halloween Specials That Will Have You Screaming... With Laughter

- Page 1

Ever since the show's second season in 1991, the Treehouse of Horror Halloween special on The Simpsons have been some of the show's funniest episodes. Each of them has three separate segments that parody famous spooky movies and stories, and they're always amazing. Here are 10 segments that are especially funny!

The Shinning (Treehouse of Horror V)

In this parody of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, Homer takes the family to his new job as a winter lodge caretaker, but a lack of TV or beer makes him quickly lose it.

Citizen Kang (Treehouse of Horror VII)

Kang and Kodos abduct President Bill Clinton and opponent Bob Dole ahead of the 1997 election, and the results as they try to take over Earth are hilarious.

Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace (Treehouse of Horror VI)

Groundskeeper Willie is Springfield's own Freddy Krueger thanks to a PTA meeting where the parents let him burn to death while they discussed the lunch menus, and only Bart and Lisa can stop him.

The Devil and Homer Simpson (Treehouse of Horror IV)

Homer sells his soul to the Devil (who turns out to be Ned Flanders) for a donut, and the results are both horrifying and hilarious.

The segments just keep getting better...
