I enjoy their Hamlet too.

Simpsons Halloween specials used to be incredible and they were often really creepy.

Agreed. The early ones were great.

Still some of my favourite episodes, especially the one with the 13th day of the 13th month quote and the "Just Don't Look" song about the adverts.

Not looking very hard, eh?

(Anonymous) 2017-05-18 06:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Any suggestions then?

I love this adaptation of "The Raven". I tend to like most of the adaptations on The Simpsons, like the ones based on The Odyssey and Hamlet.

I've liked most of the adaptations they've done tbh, they make them fun yet still mostly in-keeping with how the stories went.

My boyfriend once told me I'm really good at history cos I was telling him basic details about a bunch of historical figures/stories, but most of the stuff I'd picked up from Simpsons adaptations haha. And I agree with you, OP, this is one of my favourite adaptations too.

Lmao I love this comment.

It really is one of the better enactments. I was just thinking about this the other day too.

+1000 It's brilliant. I still seek it out on YouTube regularly to watch it over. It has to be one of the best things the Simpson ever did.

Your ideas are intriguing to me and I would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

OP, I agree and I love you

Simpsons adaptations are awesome. One of my favourites is Season 4 episode 2: A Streetcar Named Marge. You have A Streetcar Named Desire, The Great Escape, The Birds and numerous Ayn Rand references all wrapped up on one episode.

...I really need to see this.

I feel the same way towards their parody of The Little Whorehouse in Texas. In fact, I prefer the Simpsons version over the original version. At least the townsfolk gleefully admitted they were perverts and let the house stay, while the play had a more somber ending due to politics.

I love things that have silliness surrounding them but play the central concept (in this case, the words and Homer actually being haunted/terrified) straight. It's just a combination I really enjoy. I'll forever hear 'Take thy BEAK from out my heart, and take thy FORM from off my door!” if I read the poem. (And 'eat my shorts' 'BART!')
