Treehouse of Horror Rewatch Day 8

The Simpsons is now in its 26th season, which means the annual Treehouse of Horror Halloween episode is turning 25! Ratings are on a 0-5 scale, with 5 being the top, of course.

Treehouse of Horror XII (Season 13)  2 Weak Sauce!
  • Hex and the City - 2.5 The Leprechaun brought this up a full point.
  • House of Whacks - 2.5 George Lazenby?
  • Wiz Kids - 2 Oh Harry, you ass kiss.
"You know what's even better? Jesus. He's like 6 leprechauns"

 Treehouse of Horror XI (Season 12) 3.5 Yeah, the Simpsons joking about Copyright Law not so funny.
  • G-G-Ghost D-D-Dad - 4 Good times.
  • Scary Tales Can Come True - 3 The classic "avoid the trope" horror movie is redone, but with fairy tales. I like it.
  • Night of the Dolphin - 4 It's great that Homer thinks the glory hole was an impressive invention.
"Snakes. Nature's quitters."
"Why are the oafs always the first to go?
"Whoa, whoa. I'm just trying to get in (to heaven). I'm not running for Jesus."
"Mmmm... alcohol and night swimming -- a winning combination"
"Ya gotta hand it to those dolphins -- they just wanted it more."

 Treehouse of Horror X (Season 11) 3.5 OK, nothing to see here, move along..
  • I Know What You Diddily-iddily-Did - 3.5 Marge kills Flanders, 
  • Desperately Xeeking Xena - 4 A full segment of the Comic Book Guy? Yes, please!
  • Life's a Glitch, Then You Die - 3 If only the whole thing had been mocking C-list celebs.
"If you haven't been probed by these two, you haven't been probed!"

Treehouse of Horror IX (Season 10) 4 This is definitely the end of an era.
  • Hell Toupée- 4 When this first came out, it seemed like sci-fi. But now we're all too aware of the horrors of possession by hair transplant.
  • The Terror of Tiny Toon - 4.5 Ever wondered what would happen if Bart and Lisa entered a cartoon?
  • Starship Poopers - 3.5 Jerry Springer. Ugh.
"Hey, Apu, you got a breakfast cereal for people with syphilis?"
"Wow! If your fly weren't open, you'd look just like Roger Moore"
(Newsman Kent Brockton) "Filthy old bartender Moe Syzlak has watered down his last highball"
"Homer, do something! The ceiling's not a safe place for a young baby!"
"Holy Flurking Schnitt!"
"Somebody needs to learn your green ass some responsibility"
