Woah, the Halloween Special airs in October? I must've been out of it for a while, because I seem to recall giving up when Treehouse of Horror started to become Fox's proud first-weekend-in-November tradition.

This being after a long run where Treehouse of Horror was the only new Simpsons I watched, which started probably some time in the 15th or 16th season (though, with hindsight, I don't know why I stuck around that long…).

GDT might bring me back, at least long enough to see someone sharing a YouTube Link to the opener on Facebook, sorta like with the Banksy one…
