The tradition of airing a Halloween-themed episode exists From the second season of the series. Specifically, the first horror episode, The Treehouse I, was the third episode of the second season, on October 25, 1990.
The 34th tree house will consist of 3 parts. We still don’t know the title of each one, but we know what it will be like. In one of them, Bart will become an NFT and Marge will have to rescue him through Blockchain. In another story, Lisa will try to hunt down a serial killer, an obvious parody of “The Silence of the Lambs.” Finally, in the final part, a terrifying plague will arrive in Springfield, turning the city into a city inhabited by lazy people, with zombie-like behavior, beer lovers. This is also a parody, specifically of Planet Terror.
The Simpsons horror specials are not only a tradition on the television scene; Some of its episodes became masterpieces of animation. The now legendary slogan “Don’t look at me, I voted for Kodos” was born from Special VII in 1996, which was joined by other iconic moments, such as when Homer lost his head in Special V, in an obvious reference to Shining, or when Mr. Burns is revealed to be a Dracula very similar to Coppola’s version in the Part 4 special. From the beginning they emulated legendary films.
