The Simpsons Parodies Mad Men, Charlie Brown on Treehouse of Horror

The Simpsons Parodies Mad Men, Charlie Brown Tonight

The Simpsons may not be must-see TV for me like it was a few years back, but I still try to make a point of watching the annual Halloween special, the Treehouse of Horror. Even though it usually airs after Halloween (thanks a lot, World Series), it keeps me in the spooky holiday mood with clever horror parodies.

I'm especially excited for this year's (19th!) episode because it includes a takeoff on one of my favorite Halloween traditions: It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. The producers even got the rights to use the film's classic score, which is basically burned into my brain from years of watching the TV special.

There's also a Transformers parody, and another of Mad Men called "How to Get Ahead in Dead-Vertising," which features Homer Simpson falling through the sky just like Don Draper in the opening credits. Will you be watching this year's Treehouse? You can watch a snippet of the Mad Men parody if you

Loved the lollipop at the end of the clip. I thought the little clip afterwards was just ok...not great but not awful either, but I loved the opening scene montage though.

I love how this show still manages to stay so fresh after so many years on TV. They really have so many terrific people working on it tirelessly, I'm sure :)

Wow...that Simpson-ized Mad Men sequence is fantastic (love the donut and then the lollipop). I've missed the Halloween special the last 2 years but I think I'm going to have to catch this!

CBS needs to play our Charlie on the day or eve of the Holiday. I don't think anyone would be upset to preempt the crap they air
