Simpsons Halloween Special Includes Furry Nod
This evening's Simpsons Halloween Special (the thirteenth and final edition) featured as its final tale of horror a take-off on the Island of Dr. Moreau, called "The Island of Dr. Hibbert". In a reverse twist on the original plot by H. G. Wells, instead of animals turning into people it featured the extended Simpsons cast turning into animals.
Plot highlights: Homer has a romantic encounter with his wife after she turns bestial, and then at the conclusion of the tale he tries to convince the tribe of townie therianthropes to convert back to human, with an impassioned speech. "But all you do is eat! and sleep! And mate! And roll around in your own filth! And mate! And... Umm... Where do I sign up?" Homer joins the pack (as a walrus hominid, aptly), and they all live happily ever after.
