I watch, and blog, and watch and blog and watch. It's the Simpsons every day!

You intergalactic hussy!

Treehouse of Horror IX

Couch gag: Freddie Krueger and Jason (from the Halloween films) are sitting on the couch, wondering where the family are. 

Director: Steven Dean Moore

Guest voices:
Robert Englund as Freddie Krueger
Ed McMahon as himself
Jerry Springer as himself
Regis Philbin as himself
Kathie Lee Gifford as herself

Synopsis: 1) Hell Toupee: Snake is executed and Homer has his hair transplant. The hair tries to kill everyone who witnessed Snake’s final crime, including Bart. 2) Terror of Tiny Toon: Bart and Lisa are zapped into an Itchy & Scratchy cartoon. 3) Starship Poopers: Maggie is revealed to be the daughter of Kang.

Discussion: Regular readers will know that I’m not a huge fan of the Halloween episodes. This one is no exception. 

Hell Toupee is a somewhat original idea. There’s this supposed phenomenon where donor recipients can have some characteristics of the donor. It’s an interesting field. Anyhoo, Homer ends up with Snake’s hair and the hair goes on a killing spree. It’s gory, it’s violent and pretty satisfying to a gore fan like me.

Terror in Tiny Toon shows Bart and Lisa zapped into Itchy & Scratchy and trying to get away from the violence. It’s OK, not terrific. A good idea, well executed (heh), love the live action shot of Lisa and Bart falling into the pot of soup.

By far, the best segment is Starship Poopers, where Maggie is revealed to be Kang’s daughter. It’s always good to see Kang & Kodos being used in a storyline as opposed to just appearing briefly because the writers forgot to write them in. Marge was abducted by Kang and Kodos and impregnated against her will. The truth is discovered when Maggie loses her baby legs and grows tentacles. Hilarious! The family, plus Kang, end on up on the Jerry Springer show to fight it out. Brilliant!
