THE SIMPSONS SCARE UP THREE BONE-CHILLING TALES
OF THE STRANGE AND SUPERNATURAL IN "TREEHOUSE OF HORROR XIX"
ON "THE SIMPSONS" SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18, ON FOX
The frightfest begins with "Untitled Robot Parody" when Bart buys Lisa a knock-off of a Malibu Stacy convertible for Christmas. Later that night, the car morphs into a robot and instructs the other toys in Lisa's room to also transform. Soon, other giant robots appear and make Springfield the ultimate battleground. The scare-ific tricks continue in "How to Get Ahead in Dead-Vertising" when Homer accidentally kills Krusty. The clown's crooked lawyer enlists Homer to kill other celebrities so their likenesses can be exploited free-of-charge. For a fee, Homer goes on a killing spree and whacks Prince, George Clooney and William Shatner. Meanwhile in heaven, Krusty convinces other dead celebrities to stage a revolt and descend upon Homer. In the final Halloween scare, "It's the Grand Pumpkin, Milhouse," Lisa accompanies Milhouse to a pumpkin patch to await the appearance of the Grand Pumpkin. When he finally appears, the Grand Pumpkin goes on a rampage to avenge all pumpkins carved and tortured in the name of Halloween in the "Treehouse of Horror XIX" episode of THE SIMPSONS airing Sunday, Oct. 18 (7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
