Here's the poster for the episode:

Nice! :)

Feels like almost all Treehouse posters are neat. Episodes are a different matter, though my biggest complaint is they just feel too rushed...

Anyhoo, I'm curious about the "Stranger Things" parody. Haven't actually seen an episode but know enough about it. "The Shape of Water" is an interesting choice. It's not really horror per se, though it does have some horror-like elements so it could work. It's also a callback to another recent Treehouse. Don't think they've said what the Homer and Mr. Teeny one is about... you know what first came to mind? The Twilight Zone episode "Eye of The Beholder". Interesting twist if it is. Would be so cool! Its been forever since they've done Twilight. They chose a good one if so. Now they just need to do "Number 12 Looks Just Like You" with Lisa and Marge!

Awesome poster Dan, thanks for linking! :)


Yeah, IIRC they also did “To Serve Man” back in Season 2 (with James Earl Jones!) plus “It’s a good life” with Bart (who else??) in the Bill Mumy role. (Also “Clown Without Pity” from season 4 was partially based on “Living Doll” aka Talking Tina.)

Oh my God Dan that is so brilliant! . And Lisa is so perfect for Marilyn!!

Season 19 is finally getting a DVD release. Woo-hoo!

This is the first post movie season, with the exception of a few hold-overs. Has its share of good and bad episodes, one for instance... "That 90's Show". The commentary for that one should be a hoot. :lol:

One issue I had with the season overall is it had a bit too many death fake outs. When one really happened it didn't have a strong as impact as it should have. Aside from that, it contains a few of my favorites; "Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind", "Apocalypse Cow" and "All About Lisa".

Speaking of The Movie...Matt Groening had something to say regarding that:

Rare short feature on The Tracy Ullman shorts. (Matt Groening is so young! :wink: )

Cool. Tracey's attempt at Bart reminds me more of one of the Happy Little Elves or Itchy & Scratchy when they lost their edge. "Lemonade". ;)
