From the iconic, trend-setter “Treehouse of Horror” episode of The Simpsons in 1990, The Simpsons have produced these Halloween Three-Parters every season since and they aren’t showing a sign of stopping. In this annual tradition we see the Springfield characters, that we’ve grown to love, take part in non-canon stories to scare, amuse and to reference popular Horror and Non-Horror movies. Over the 28 years we’ve seen 84 segments (including the segments of this year) so whilst there is a gold-mine of hilarious, iconic and chilling segments there are also the segments that are just randomly annoying or just passable so over October I decided to rewatch all of the Treehouse of Horror episodes to familiarize myself with each one and to give a fun ranking of ALL 84 segments.
There are so many factors to take into consideration when I ranked these segments and because of the vast amount of segments there are surely going to be segments that are interchangeable and may change as time goes by so doesn’t quote me on this ranking. This post is my opinion and I may or may not have opinions different to yours or to other places so please just respect that and enjoy …
Hey guys and welcome to an October Edition of Springfield Showcase where I post all the Halloween related screenshots uploaded to Sam’s Springfield Showcase over at TOuk. I announced SSS (Sam’s Springfield Showcase) recently and got some really fun screenshots posted and even though this “spooky” edition wasn’t posted on Friday the 13th, I hope you can still be inspired by some of the amazing tappers over at TOuk.
If you want to get featured in this monthly showcase then make sure to make a TOuk account and post over at the SSS – ALL details on this post. But for now, here we go!…
Treehouse of Horror 2017 seems to be the event that is receiving a range of opinions for the hate, the mediocre and the love and for me personally I’m enjoying the overall theme of the event, looking forward to building a Hogwarts style area, can see some super fun content for me but I can see the drag and the mediocrity for people that aren’t Pot(ter)heads like me.
But whether you love or you hate this Marmite event, there is content coming up and I’m sure there’s something for everyone and I definitly think that EA have done an good job at adding some classic items for some not into the Magical tone and I think people need to put in perspective how many years EA have done these events and the struggle EA would have had with making everyone happy with not that much classic THOH content left.
Due to the popularity of the Item Calendars – to me and to my beloved readers – It thought people would appreciate a Calendar to show the upcoming content in the game so – quite obviously – there are going to be SPOILERS so please DON’T read ahead if you’d rather not read that kind of content.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED …
Hello my beautiful Tappers and welcome to an interview that is extremely late. Back in late May/early June, I interviewed Michael Price – which was really fun – and I asked him if there were any Simpsons writers that also worked on The Simpsons Tapped Out. He told me about J Stewart Burns who writes for The Simpsons and also helps over at Tapped Out. I soon had his email and was very excited to get a response quickly – especially since he started his reply by saying his wife was about to go into labour! Really don’t know why I didn’t post this interview nearer that time but found this post in my drafts recently …
So I am extremely grateful that J Stewart Burns got back so I hope you enjoy his answers …
