Treehouse of Horror XXIV
Couch Gag From Horror Master Guillermo Del Toro
First of Four All-New Halloween-Themed Episodes!
The opener of the 24th annual "Treehouse of Horror" is from Guillermo del Toro and features monsters and classic characters from horror films throughout history. In "Oh The Places You'll D'oh," the first of three spine-tingling stories, Homer rides around Springfield wreaking havoc as "The Fat in The Hat" in a rhyming Dr. Seuss-ian tale. In "Dead and Shoulders," Bart is beheaded during a kite accident, his head is attached to Lisa's body and they must live together as one. The final terrifying tale, "Freaks no Geeks," features Mr. Burns' traveling circus, The Burnsum and Bailey Circus, which has stopped in Springfieldland in the 1930s. Trapeze artist Marge and Strong Man Homer are performers and things go awry when circus freak Moe starts to make advances towards Marge in the all-new "Treehouse of Horror XXIV" episode of THE SIMPSONS airing Sunday, Oct. 6 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

DESCRIPTION: (from FOX's press release, May 2015) FOX has renewed THE SIMPSONS for unprecedented 27th and 28th seasons, which will take the series to 625 episodes. "I've outlasted Letterman, Jon Stewart and 'McDreamy,' because I have something they don't: a costly 200-donut-a-day addiction," said Homer Simpson. The longest-running scripted show in television history, THE SIMPSONS exploded into a cultural phenomenon in 1990 and has remained one of the most groundbreaking and innovative entertainment franchises, recognizable throughout the world. Currently airing its record-annihilating 26th season, THE SIMPSONS has won 31 Emmy Awards, 31 Annie Awards, a 2015 People's Choice Award, was the first animated series to win a Peabody Award and was nominated for an Academy Award in 2012 for the theatrical short "The Longest Daycare." "The Simpsons Movie" was a hit feature film, the mega-attraction The Simpsons Ride at Universal Studios has received historic expansion updates with the addition of "Springfield" and the show was honored with a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2000. It has been named the "Best Show of the 20th Century" by Time magazine, and called the "Greatest American Sitcom" by Entertainment Weekly in 2013.
