“The human race is 20 cow farts away from total extinction, and we deserve it,” she is heard saying. A notebook then suddenly falls in front of her that says ‘Death Tome’.
“Any person whose name is written in this DEATH TOME will meet their death…and be DEAD,” reads the notebook, adding, “You must specify how the victim will die, and you may NOT kill the same way twice.”
Treehouse of Horror XXXIII will Feature Three Episodes
Treehouse of Horror is a Halloween Special episode of The Simpsons which releases every year around the festival. This year will be the 32nd edition of the holiday special and will feature two more episodes apart from Death Tome.
The first episode, titled The Pookadook, will pay homage to The Babadook, and the third episode will be a Westworld spoof titled Simpsonsworld. Meanwhile, the public reaction to the announcement of The Simpsons Death Note parody is extremely positive.
“The Simpsons doing a Death Note parody is something I never knew I needed,” tweeted a fan, while another wrote, “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 even the same studio that animated Death Note!”
