Hello my lovely readers!
This week I’m participating in the Thursday Movie Picks series by Wandering through the shelves. For a change the topic focuses on TV instead of movies – and it’s a Halloween special. So let’s talk about The Weird…
A little note before I get started. I decided to focus this post on animated show. When I read about the topic the episodes below were the first things to come to my mind, so it’s animation exclusive. 😉
Hell on Earth 2006 – South Park:
South Park featured some great Halloween episodes but this one is my favorite – and also the weirdest one. In Hell on Earth 2006 Satan wants to throw a Halloween party My Super Sweet Sixteen style and wears a Britney Spears school girl costume. Weird enough for you?
Treehouse of Horror – The Simpsons:
When we talk about Halloween episodes nothing is more classic than the Treehouse of Horror episodes featured in every Simpsons season since the second one. The one I enjoyed most the original – the first Treehouse of Horror episode ever broadcasted. It’s split into three stories: one is about a haunted house. The second one deals with the Simpsons being abducted by aliens. But my most treasured story of all is The Raven. The poem by Edgar Allan Poe is brought to life in this episode. And what’s weirder than a raven saying only “nevermore”?
Nightmare on Ocean Avenue Street – Bob’s Burgers:
The Halloween episodes featured on Bob’s Burgers are always brilliant. I just watched this year’s special and I am so excited. The best (and the weirdest) thing are costumes: Louise is a dragon with a girl tattoo, Tina is a nun of your business. The kids have to have a thief who steals all the Halloween candy. So it’s upon the Belcher children to save this holiday!
