12 Days of Simpsons, Day 9: Best of ‘Treehouse of Horror’

Grinch, schminch. The best seasonal animated program is surely the annual “Simpsons” Halloween special (aka “Treehouse of Horror”) full of classic film references, pop culture, obliviousness from Homer and hell-raising from Bart. (You can catch up on the “TOH” specials thanks to the FXX broadcast of  “Every Simpsons Ever” marathon, which wraps up Monday.)

We at ArtsPage HQ think the first “TOH” is the best of the bunch — it introduced viewers to the slavering aliens Kang and Kodos, depicted a “Bad Dream House” and, best of all, turned Bart into the title character of Poe’s “The Raven,” with Homer as the narrator.

IMDB says it’s Season 5 thanks in part to its parody of “The Shining.” The Boston Globe liked “The Devil and Homer Simpson” — No. IV.

Yada, yada. Catch the next “Treehouse of Horror” in the marathon at 8:30 a.m. today (Friday, Aug. 29). It’s “TOH XVII.”
