Trivia

The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror (1990) is the only "Treehouse of Horror" to use the tree house motif and is so far one of two "Treehouse of Horrors" that don't use the spooky names. The second is The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror XIII (2002).


Quotes

Leonard Nimoy: What follows are lies, but they are entertaining lies. And isn't that really what we mean by true? The answer... is no.


Goofs

The interior of the family's home changes from time to time, e.g. the size of the archway and what room it leads to.


Crazy Credits

In the episode "The Old Man and the Key" the closing credits are a parody of the ending of The Beverly Hillbillies (1962), with the Simpsons standing in front of a doorway waving at the audience, while banjo music plays. When the Gracie Films logo appears, Lisa is heard saying, in a hillbilly accent, "This has been a Gracie Films Presentation, y'all".
