    If you use noscript or something like that you’ll have to check the permissions.

    For those experiencing issues with the player, there is a YouTube version now available via Fox’s Animation Domination channel.

    I’m glad to know they have this planned but I’m waiting til Sunday to see it. I’m just glad the Treehouse of Horror actually falls in October this year.

    That was amazingly excellent. All those references to classic horror writers/movies/etc. I really appreciated all the shout outs to horror writers (I caught King, Bradbury, Poe, and Lovecraft) and Alfred Hitchcock. Plus I caught a glimpse of “Zippy the Pinhead” as he appeared in the movie “Freaks.” That’s a deep cut right there.

    AMAZING.

    I loved the shout out to the authors too! I really liked Bradbury with the Illustrated Man.

    There is a version of it on YouTube from the channel Animation Domination that works in Canada, so it’s might work for you depending where you are.

    I know! I felt that I caught a lot of it, but I know I missed a lot. Give it a couple of days and I’m sure someone will have screengrabs of every reference.
