List Rules Vote up your all-time favorite Treehouse of Horror Halloween segments.

Get ready for a fright as we rank the best Treehouse of Horror segments of all time. Starting in Season Two (all the way back in 1990), Simpsons Halloween episodes have aired every year, with each episode consisting of three frightfully fun and unique segments that reference everything from classic literature to the latest pop culture. That's a lot of Halloween goodness.

The great thing about Treehouse of Horror is the fact that these episodes exist outside the show’s main storyline. Therefore, you can have Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and the rest of the Springfield crew embark on all sorts of zany adventures without having to adhere to specific plot points. Bart can be a raven, Mr. Burns can be a vampire, and Homer can be the savior of all mankind. 

With so many awesome Simpsons Halloween episodes to choose from, there’s no way you can vote up only one - especially since there are three segments to each Simpsons Halloween episode! But don't be scared, you don't have to. This list of all the Treehouse of Horror segments from The Simpsons means you can pick your favorite Treehouse of Horror segments, no matter what particular episode they were on. Be sure to vote up all the best Treehouse of Horror segments so other folks can see which they should watch first.
