Top 10 Most Disappointing The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror Segments

For every great Simpsons Treehouse of Horror segment, there are bad ones, and there are ones that end up having a lot of wasted potential. While most of these segments aren't all bad, some of them just felt like the writers could have done more with them.

The Top Ten

1 Coralisa Coralisa

I really was looking forward to this a parody of the movie Coraline though the animation when Lisa enters the other world is impressive sadly it's the only positive about this segment they literally do nothing interesting with it Lisa quickly decides to get buttons sew'd on her in a matter of minutes then Marge and Bart also enter the door and do the same and Homer enters to and nothing really happens, they completely wasted a great idea. - egnomac

It would been better if while Lisa was still having second thoughts, Homer, Marge, Bart, and Maggie are imprisoned. They would remained imprisoned if Lisa lose a game to Other Marge and her Other family, or Lisa's family are free if Lisa beats Other Marge, with a twisted ending.

Over hyped. This segment could have been exactly based from Coraline's plot, with an ending distinctly similar to the original. If that have been the way, then this segment would been better.

This one sucks. The others are better - NightmareCinema

2 The Diving Bell and the Butterball The Diving Bell and the Butterball

Fart-spider-man-hero will help you!

That wasn't terrifying at all, that was obnoxiously annoying and stupid! It is nothing but stupid fart jokes and all the crap!
The Simpsons should put "Horror" back in "Treehouse of Horror". I'll bet Matt Groening I can write a better Treehouse of Horror segment better than this stupid piece of crap!

P.S. Bring back the tombstone gags and the wraparound scenes. And cancel Family Guy!

I expect this kind of stupidity with Family Guy but not from The Simpsons they are much better than this having Homer being paralyzed by a spider and then communicates with them by farting, are you sure the people of Family Guy didn't write this it just seems like the kind of thing they would do. - egnomac

Family Guy writers are collaborating with The Simpsons, that's nothing new that's why got too many seasons - MickeyMouse

The Simpsons > Family Guy

3 Desperately Xeeking Xena Desperately Xeeking Xena

This segment should have been centered more on Bart and Lisa with superpowers instead of shoehorning Lucy Lawless as Xena and make her the whole focus of the segment, Bart and Lisa basically become side characters and get easily knocked out by The Collector and Xena ends up saving the day what a waste of a segment. - egnomac

4 Reaper Madness Reaper Madness

Be live it or not Family Guy actually did an episode like this and did it way better and while both Peter and Homer end up having to do Death's job what separates the two is Peter doesn't actually want to carry out Death's job while Homer takes too much pleasure in his powers to kill anyone and straight up abuses them until he is forced to kill Marge, the segment felt very weak in my opinion. - egnomac

The Simpsons > Family Guy

5 Tweenlight Tweenlight

Twilight parody.

6 Dry Hard Dry Hard

Yet another parody of a popular movie franchise, sadly it feels very rushed and tries to do too many things in a very short amount of time. - egnomac

7 In the Na'vi In the Na'vi

Again it feels like they could have done a lot more with it, plus it lacks a lot of the laughs and just fell flat. - egnomac


"HEY! LISTE-" oh wait wrong type of navi - mattstat716

8 There's No Business Like Moe Business There's No Business Like Moe Business

So musical centred.

9 The Day the Earth Looked Stupid The Day the Earth Looked Stupid

What? This was a great segment! It had "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire", by The Ink Spots. And adding to this, it's from the Fallout series, specifically Fallout 3.

Just crap

10 Homerzilla Homerzilla

It started out good being in black and white similar to King Homer but gets ruined when they cut to the present day and deciding to remake Homerzilla and it flops. - egnomac

The Contenders

11 Telepaths of Glory Telepaths of Glory

Parody of Chronicle again it was another missed opportunity, they could have ended the segment with Milhouse going mad with power and Bart and Lisa have to stop him but the minute were its reveled that she has Telekinesis too it pretty much killed the segment. - egnomac

12 Mr. & Mrs. Simpson Mr. & Mrs. Simpson

Season 19

13 The Fright to Creep and Scare Harms The Fright to Creep and Scare Harms
14 MoeFinger MoeFinger

GoldFinger parody

This one fells way out of place for a Simpsons Halloween segment. - egnomac

15 War & Pieces War & Pieces


16 It's the Grand Pumpkin, Milhouse It's the Grand Pumpkin, Milhouse

It was funny when Nelson bullied Milhouse, like giving him a wedgie or punches.

17 Wiz Kids Wiz Kids

Why didn't Daniel Radcliffe guest star in this episode instead of the Twilight parody?

Good spoof of the Harry Potter franchise but they could have done more with it. - egnomac

18 Heck House Heck House
19 Send in the Clones

Peter Griffin is a clone.
Also see the Homer from the old show. 1987-1989.

Let’s al go out for some frosty chocolate milkshakes! - Tgamez

20 Life's a Glitch, Then You Die

Y2k bug was a scam.

21 Citizen Kang

Anything heavy on dated political humor is not worth my time sorry

Homer actually voted for Kodos!

22 The Genesis Tub

What the heck?! This segment is one of the best, although it would been interesting if more was shown. Such as Lisa's future of being marooned in The Genesis Tub Universe, or aftermath.

23 In the Belly of the Boss
24 Starship Poopers
25 Hex and the City
26 Bartificial Intelligence
27 Gotta Know When to Golem
28 All the Places You'll D'oh!
