Treehouse of Horror I-XXIII
The Simpson's Halloween Specials!
Beginning in the second season, the writers of The Simpsons were given free reign to write a Halloween episode for the series. The first episode of its kind featured Bart, Lisa, and Maggie telling ghost stories in their treehouse on Halloween night. The series got its name, "Treehouse of Horror", from this episode.
In the THOH episodes anything goes. The episode usually consists of at least 3 short segments with the writers drawing on classic tales of horror. These have included famous horror films, the works of Edgar Allen Poe, episodes of The Twilight Zone, and other well-known horror concepts. There are also spoofs and gags, including an appearance by the space aliens Kang and Kodos and the changing of the production staff's names in the credits.
