Second Episode of 90-Minute SIMPSONS Mini-Marathon
THE SIMPSONS hand out screams and scare up laughs in this edition of their annual, bone-chilling Halloween special. The horror starts in "Married to the Blob," when a meteor falls to Earth and reveals a green goo that Homer mistakes for a marshmallow. After Homer eats the goo, he turns into a rampaging blob with a never-ending appetite that even guest voice Dr. Phil McGraw can't stop. In "You Gotta Know When to Golem," Bart brings Golem (guest voice Richard Lewis as a legendary monster from Jewish folklore) to life and forces him to carry out his ghastly bidding. But when the creature is finally freed of his evildoing, Marge, Bart and Lisa create a female monster (guest voice Fran Drescher) that captures Golem's heart. In the final scare, "The Day the Earth Looked Stupid," a fake radio broadcast convinces the residents of Springfield that they're in the midst of an alien invasion, throwing the town into pandemonium � which only worsens when the invasion stops being a hoax and becomes reality in the "Treehouse of Horror XVII" episode of THE SIMPSONS, Sunday, Nov. 4 (7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
