Opening segment

In the opening scene, Homer tries to vote for Democratic Senator Barack Obama in the 2008 American presidential election, but the voting machine is rigged to turn his vote into one for Republican Senator John McCain, and after six attempts to vote for Obama, the machine kills him.


In a parody of Transformers,” Bart buys for Lisa a Malibu Stacy convertible from a 99 cent store for Christmas, which turns out to be a Transformer. The robot transforms all the technology in Springfield into robots so they can wage war with each other. In an attempt to end the fighting, Marge asks why the robots war with one another; as it turns out, they can’t even remember. Thanking Marge, the two sides declare that they will work together to conquer the human race, using the residents of Springfield in a game of foosball.

 How to Get Ahead in Dead-Vertising

While taking Maggie to daycare, Homer encourages her to enjoy a poster featuring Krusty to make her feel better there, when Krusty arrives to have the poster destroyed as his likeness is copyrighted and used on the poster without his permission, making Maggie upset. Outside, Homer shoves Krusty in retaliation for making Maggie cry, sending him flying into several playsets before landing in a wood chipper where he is shredded. Homer is later approached by businessmen who have heard of his deed and explain that the likenesses of dead celebrities can be put in commercials for free since they often refuse to sponsor certain products, so Homer starts killing celebrities such as George Clooney, Prince, and Neil Armstrong for them. In Heaven, the dead celebrities are outraged by these exploits. Krusty convinces dead celebrities to descend from Heaven and stage an attack upon everyone who benefits from these exploits, with Krusty blowing Homer’s head off with a shotgun. However, Homer gets revenge by locking the celebrities out of Heaven before they return.

 It’s the Grand Pumpkin, Milhouse

In a parody of It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” Milhouse is waiting in the pumpkin patch for the Grand Pumpkin on Halloween, and Lisa accompanies him because (as she puts it) his glasses fog up when he cries, which he would probably do to learn that the Grand Pumpkin doesn’t exist. Soon, Lisa leaves in frustration when she sees everyone at school having a Halloween party. Using his childlike belief, Milhouse’s tears bring the Grand Pumpkin to life. However, the Pumpkin is appalled to find that his kindred pumpkins are being carved up on Halloween, and vows revenge by eating several people whole, including Homer, Groundskeeper Willie, and Nelson. Realizing that Milhouse can bring things to life by believing in them, Lisa tells him about “Tom Turkey,” a symbol of Thanksgiving, who comes to life and kills the Grand Pumpkin, freeing everyone he ate. However, when Tom Turkey learns of what people do to turkeys on Thanksgiving, he vows revenge and starts eating the children as well.

 Next episode is titled “Dangerous Curves” it airs on Sunday, November 9th
