It’s almost Halloween and that means it’s time for another Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror episode. Although I haven’t watched the Simpsons regularly in years, I always watch the Treehouse of Horror of episodes. I’ve recorded everyone and each year I update my DVD (now 4 DVDs) with the newest episode. While they’re not as good as they used to be, each one usually has a few classis moments. Here are two of my favorites:
I’ve always noticed a few cinematic references in episodes of the Simpsons, but the list of Simpsons Scenes and their reference movies is just too cool. I never realized how many there were. The sad part is for all the ones pictured, I remember at least one more. Hopefully someone will put together part 2.
On a similarly titled note, the 19th season premier last night (He Loves to Fly and He D’ohs) referenced this summer’s The Simpsons Movie in the intro. A destroyed Springfield was shown being cleaned up and rebuilt and Spider-Pig makes an appearance in the couch gag at the end of the intro.
While I don’t watch the show on any sort of regular basis like I used to, it still cracks me up any time I manage to catch a few minutes. Almost 20 years later and it’s still funny (maybe not as much) and still packed with pop-culture references (more of which I now catch).
