Three terrifying tales of menace and murder.
Written by Conan O'Brien, Bill Oakley, Josh Weinstein, Greg Daniels, Dan McGrath and Bill Canterbury
Directed by David Silverman
Additional cast: Pamela Hayden, Russi Taylor, Frank Welker
Special guest voices: Phil Hartman (as Lionel Hutz)
Premise: In The Devil and Homer Simpson, Homer makes a pact with the Devil - his soul for a doughnut. Nightmare at Five Feet sees Bart's schoolbus menaced by a monster. Dracula features a vampiric Mr Burns out for blood.
Tombstones: Elvis - Accept It, A Balanced Budget, Subtle Political Satire and TV Violence.
Homage: The Twilight Zone again, although this time there are also nods to Night Gallery, with Bart in the role of its host Rod Serling. The closing sequence is a reference to Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown, another seasonal cartoon special.
Mmmmm: ...forbidden donut.
Look out for: Hell's Jury, including Blackbeard and Richard Nixon.
Notes: Probably the best of the Treehouses of Horror, with many notable sequences. We're particularly fond of Hell's Dept of Ironic Punishments and Chief Wiggum's attempts to deal with Dracula.
