    I love Halloween and I love The Simpsons, even after all these years I still never miss an episode! So, the perfect combination is of course The Simpson's Halloween Special "Treehouse of Horror". Since it first aired on Oct. 24, 1990, I have always looked forward to every Simpsons Halloween Special (even though in recent years it has aired in November!) and here CHERNOBOG'S LAIR presents the Top 10 Simpson's Treehouse of Horror (Sequences, not episodes)!
#10 "It's the Grand Pumpkin, Milhouse," (Ep. XIX, 11/02/2008) In a homage to the Peanuts classic "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" except this time the great pumpkin comes and goes on a rampage!
#9 "Starship Poopers" (Ep. IX, 10/25/1998) Maggie is the illegitimate child between Marge and Kang, then they end up on the Jerry Springer Show!?
#8 "The Thing and I" (Ep. VII, 10/27/1996) Bart Simpson and his separated conjoined twin Hugo!
#7 "The Island Of Dr. Hibbert" (Ep. XIII, 11/03/2002) The Simpsons are turned into animals in a parody of the "Island of Dr. Moreau"!
#6 "Desperately Xeeking Xena" (Ep. X, 10/31/1999) Bart and Lisa become superheroes and Comic Book Guy becomes the villain The Collector and kidnaps Xena (Lucy Lawless)!
#5 "Hungry are the Damned" (Ep. I, 10/24/1991) This is the first appearance of alien invaders Kang and Kodos, who have appeared in every Halloween special since!
#4 "The Shinning" (Ep. V, 10/30/1994) A Simpsons parody of Stanley Kubrick/Jack Nicholson's version of Stephen King's "The Shining"! And no, I didn't spell it wrong!
#3 "The Devil and Homer Simpson" (Ep. IV, 10/30/1995) Homer sells his soul for a donut, classic!
#2 "Dial 'Z' for Zombie" (Ep. III, 10/29/1992) The Simpsons + Zombies = Awesome! Homer: "Take that Washington! Eat lead, Einstein! Show's over Shakespeare!"
#1 "The Raven" (Ep. I, 10/24/1991) This is and always will be my favorite sequence! As a Simpson's and Edgar Allan Poe fan, this was perfect, although they did shorten the poem it was portrayed beautifully and masterfully read by James Earl Jones!
