Best Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror episodes

I recently hosted a night in which my friends and I sat and watched a pile of the over 25 Treehouse of Horror episodes. Since watching them all was impossible, we picked 9 of the best ones.

Here they are:

“TREEHOUSE OF HORROR IV: TERROR AT 5½ FEET,” SEASON 5, EPISODE 5

Bart fights off a demonic little gremlin aka the Twilight Zone episode Nightmare at 20,000ft.


“TREEHOUSE OF HORROR VI: HOMER³,” SEASON 7, EPISODE 6

 The episode where Homer turns 3D and contains numerous awesome mathematical easter eggs.


“TREEHOUSE OF HORROR V: TIME AND PUNISHMENT,” SEASON 6, EPISODE 5

Homer invents a time toaster and is totally unprepared for the consequences of time travel.


“TREEHOUSE OF HORROR VI, NIGHTMARE ON EVERGREEN TERRACE,” SEASON 7, EPISODE 6

This homage to Nightmare on Elm Street sees groundskeeper Willie as Freddy Krueger. Equal parts funny and creepy, plus the Stephen King’s It” twist ending of Spider-Willie is just perfect


“TREEHOUSE OF HORROR III: CLOWN WITHOUT PITY,” SEASON 2, EPISODE 3

Another Twilight Zone homage to the episode Living Doll as a possessed Krusty doll. As far as I’m concerned, this segment was also the pop culture moment that put the term “frogurt” into the lexicon.

“TREEHOUSE OF HORROR XIX: IT’S THE GRAND PUMPKIN, MILHOUSE,” SEASON 20, EPISODE 4

This 2008 episode is a clear satire of It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. It also has a fantastic take on Mad Men and an Election Day bit on a malfunctioning touch-screen voting machine that mocked the Florida election.


“TREEHOUSE OF HORROR VII: CITIZEN KANG,” SEASON 8, EPISODE 1

The installment from this particular edition where Kang and Kodos come to earth and impersonate Clinton and Dole in their thwarted effort to take over earth. It was brilliant.


“TREEHOUSE OF HORROR I: THE RAVEN,” SEASON 2, EPISODE 3

Homer gives a rendition of Edgar Allen Poe’s classic tale of terror The Raven. Homer as its protagonist, Marge as his lost Lenore, and Bart as the interloping raven.Narration by James Earl Jones.


“TREEHOUSE OF HORROR V: THE SHINNING,” SEASON 6, EPISODE 5

 

Simpson’s homage to The Shining. The best of them all IMHO.
