Description

The second season of The Simpsons contains the very first installment of "Treehouse of Horror," an episode containing a trio of terrifying short stories that would become a tradition for the show every year around Halloween. The three tales all take place outside of the normal continuity, as members of the Simpsons clan deal with situations out of science fiction, fantasy and horror flicks (the segments were often spoofs of popular films or TV shows). The most-memorable story this time around is "Hungry Are the Damned," a parody of an old Twilight Zone episode in which the family grow suspicious that a pair of seemingly friendly aliens are planning to eat them. Other Season 2 highlights include a flashback episode depicting the high-school courtship of Homer and Marge and an uncredited appearance by Dustin Hoffman as a substitute teacher who inspires Lisa; Hoffman was one of the first in a long line of big-name celebrities who lent their voices to characters in Springfield.~Jack Rodgers
