  1. For those wondering where the newer Halloween episodes are, I suspect that Ten doesn’t want to have to edit them to fit into the G-rated timeslot of 6pm.

    Prehaps they could take Friends off for the week and give us some of the newer ones at 7pm.

  2. More recent Treehouse of Horrors or Halloweens or even whatever they called the season 19 one… I forget what that was called but it wasn’t TOH or Halloween.

  3. The earlier Halloween Specials (early- mid-1990s) are so much better written and animated than the Mike Scully years (season 9-12) and post-Scully years. Run the classics alongside the new ones and you’ll see what I mean.

  4. What is wrong with them? Just a couple of weeks ago, they were advertising a “rock week” and during the Olympics, it was the stupidely named “D’ohlympics”. Fine, they can show them like that but why advertise something that’s been on a MILLION times!

    And I noticed that they cut out a part in tonights episode. I know the episodes practically off-by-heart and I know they cut a part out!

  5. Bah. They’re only playing the older ones. 🙁

    Would’ve been nice to see some of the later Halloween episodes that we haven’t already seen several dozen times.

  6. Good to see Ten going with the classic and funnier Treehouse episodes! It’s such a shame that none of the other channels give much notice to Halloween, it’s normally Ten with a Simpsons week and a couple of the Foxtel movie channels….

  7. They seem to play the same Tree House of Horror eps over and over. It would be nice to see some of the later ones or do Ten not have the rights to show them?
