The Simpsons Season 34 will continue the series’ custom of airing a Halloween-themed episode, as many viewers know from prior seasons.
The producers of the show this year, however, went all out and made the horror celebration a two-part event, the first half of which aired last week and was a parody of Stephen King’s It.
But The Simpsons also did the unexpected for the traditional “Treehouse of Horror XXXIII” by adopting an anime style in order to parody the immensely popular anime series Death Note.
FOX has released photos showing the Simpsons’ regular cast members, including Dan Castellaneta’s Homer, Julie Kavner’s Marge, Yeardley Smith’s Lisa, and Nancy Cartwright’s Bart, transformed into their trademark spiky-haired anime forms.
Marge’s blue hair doesn’t stand out too much because unusual hair colors are common in anime series, and Homer is apparently switching from Duff beer to sake to get blind drunk.
In this parody of “Death Note,” Bart assumes the role of a mischievous death god while Lisa Simpson plays the role of protagonist Light Yagami in her investigation of a mysterious notebook.
When longtime series EP Matt Selman discussed the upcoming Treehouse of Horror with Entertainment Weekly in July, he hinted that the popular episode would continue to grow in scope and scale:
The Simpsons Death Note Parody Release Date
This one-off installment, titled “Death Tome,” will air on all Fox channels on October 30, 2022, at 8 o’clock p.m. EST. After waiting until October 31, you can finally watch the episode on Hulu. Photos from the parody, which feature several familiar faces from Springfield, have been posted online.
The first picture features Lisa Simpson reading Death Note while Disco Stu and Ned Flanders look on, the second picture highlights Homer and Marge as they appear in the anime, and the third picture features Lisa facing off against Ryuk, the Shinigami.
DR Movie, who animated the original Death Note anime, also animated the Simpsons parody. The special will be both a parody of and an homage to the acclaimed anime’s brand of psychological suspense.
The Death Note Episode Of The Simpsons Has Its First Teaser Trailer
The internet has been swept up in the release of the first footage from the special. In the preview, an animated Lisa Simpson is seen walking down the street, distraught about pollution and animal cruelty.
She is then overheard saying, “The human race is 20 cow farts away from total extinction, and we deserve it.” The ‘Death Tome’ notebook she was looking for suddenly landed in front of her.
The notebook states, “Anyone whose name is written in this DEATH TOME will meet their death…and be DEAD,” and it continues, “You must specify how the victim will die, and you may NOT kill the same way twice.”
There Will Be Three Episodes In Treehouse Of Horror XXXIII
The Simpsons air a special episode every year called Treehouse of Horror for Halloween. This year’s holiday special will be the 32nd installment, and in addition to Death Tome, it will feature two more episodes.
The first episode, titled The Pookadook, will be an homage to the film The Babadook, and the third episode, titled Simpsonsworld, will be a parody of the show Westworld. The public’s response to the news of the Death Note parody on The Simpsons, meanwhile, has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic.
One fan tweeted, “The Simpsons doing a Death Note parody is something I never knew I needed,” while another said, “Let it be known that the crew behind The Simpsons actually went out of their way to commission an actual anime studio to animate their Death Note parody for the upcoming Treehouse of Horror.” It’s the same company that made the Death Note cartoons, too!
