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 the first of three spine-tingling stories, Homer rides around Springfield wreaking havoc in a rhyming take on a popular children's 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.
The Simpsons focuses on a family of five. There is the father, Homer, a dull-witted, alcoholic, lazy, but lovable man. He often gets his family into crazy situations but always manages to fix things. The mother, Marge, is a stay at home mom who keeps the family together. She is the ideal wife and mother though she can be a little naive at times. She always does what she thinks is best for her family.
Next is Bart, the 10 year old boy who lives on playing pranks. He gets into a lot of trouble but is generally a good kid. Then there is the neglected middle child, Lisa. Lisa is the brain of the family and sometimes feels left out because of that. She is an outcast at school because of her talent. Finally there is Maggie the baby. Though she doesn't say much she is well known especially for her red pacifier.
