all pumpkins are racist! but I admit it!

The Treehouse of Horror episodes of The Simpsons have always been my favorites, and now they’re the only ones I watch:

There’s something really wonderful about The Simpsons freed from the need to be nice, or even realistic. And because it’s a cartoon, they can get away with far more disturbing imagery than live-action shows could. This is almost the only horror you get on TV these days, which is a shame, because I miss The Twilight Zone, Tales From The Darkside, and Tales From The Crypt. (Never was an Outer Limits guy, although I think I understand the appeal.)
