The Simpsons took to Twitter to deliver some alarming news: 2020’s “Treehouse of Horror” episode won’t air until after October is over.
No, it isn’t ideal, but it certainly isn’t the first time this has happened.
“Treehouse of Horror” episodes XI – XIX all aired in November, including “The Island of Dr. Hibbert,” the final segment of “Treehouse XIII.”
But this year it seems especially potent. And while it is only one day after Halloween, the Nov. 1st airdate just happens to be two days before the election.
While the initial trailer for “Treehouse XXXI” features reasons not to vote for Donald Trump, this is hardly the first thing The Simpsons has had to say about the Trump presidency. This image portrays a Trump moment from Season 28, Episode 19 “Looking for Mr. Goodbart.”
But there is oh so much more to “Treehouse of Horror” than just politics. Take a look, for example, at the latest image The Simpsons uploaded to Twitter:
The iconic family hasn’t looked this 3D in quite some time. Perhaps this is a callback to perhaps the greatest “Treehouse of Horror” of all time: “Treehouse of Horror 6”?
Homer3 was incredibly cutting edge for it’s time. There have been 3D Simpsons video games, Lego Episodes, Claymation episodes, and over 30 years The Simpsons has been on the air, but none quite as iconic as Homer’s first 3D appearance.
The Simpsons season 31 is currently airing on Disney+ and the 32nd season continues on Fox Sundays at 8pm.
