The Treehouse of Horror
Back in the 1990’s “The Simpsons” creators conjured up a series of Halloween Specials. Spooky themed episodes of the Simpsons called “The TreeHouse of Horror”. They were animated scary stories told in the Simpson Family TreeHouse and had a horror, supernatural or science-fiction theme.
“The Raven” based on the famous poem by Edgar Allen Poe was the third episode of these. In this episode Homer Simpson is the lead character in this hilarious animated version of The Raven.
There is an an introduction by Lisa with most of the narration and storytelling by American Actor James Earl Jones who sets the mood perfectly with his atmospheric voice. Homer quotes lines from the poem and interjects doing part of the narration himself.
Who is The Raven?
In this case it’s Bart Simpson! He is depicted as the Raven and is driving Homer to distraction. Lisa and Marge are depicted as Seraphims.
“The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe (1809 – 1849) is one of the most famous poems ever written. It is internationally renowned for it’s musicality, stylised language and supernatural haunting ambience.
I won’t detail the whole of this Simpsons animation. You can watch it for yourself! Prepare to be horrified.
