In this year's gruesome grouping of Halloween gore, Homer gets a killer new hairdo, Lisa and Bart discover first-hand that TV violence is bad, and Maggie gets her first tooth and a glimpse of her real father. In the first segment, Homer's brain is taken over by Snake when he gets Snake's hair in a transplant. With Snake controlling him, Homer kills Apu and Moe and then sets his sights on Bart. Luckily, Chief Wiggum saves the day by busting a cap in the evil hair piece. In the second story, Bart and Lisa get sucked through the fourth wall into the land of Itchy and Scratchy in the cartoon world. At first it's all fun and games, but when Itchy and Scratchy try to kill the two Simpson kids, their only escape is through Homer's inept flipping of channels. As they flip through the dial, Bart and Lisa wind up in the most frightening place of all: Live with Regis and Kathie Lee. In the final segment, the appearance of Maggie's first tooth leads to a confession Marge never wanted to make: Homer is not Maggie's real father. Kang, the drooling alien, actually inseminated Marge. Now Kang is back and he wants his baby. Homer and Marge refuse to give Maggie up. There's only one thing for the two parties to do: Go on The Jerry Springer Show and fight it out on national television.
