Ascending the stairs to the top of the lighthouse, Homer discovers that the lighthouse is operated by a computer. Enraged, Homer shatters the lighthouse's giant light.

Treehouse of Horror III (season 4) (SOLD!)

Simpsons

Episode Synopsis:
In this year's scarifying special, the Simpsons gather for a Halloween party and exchange ghost stories. In the first tale, told by Lisa, Homer buys Bart a talking Krusty doll with a few glitches: It tries to kill Homer with a knife and strangle him to death. No one believes that the doll is really trying to kill Homer, but when Marge calls the toy company's customer service numbers, it is revealed that the doll was accidentally set to 'evil' instead of 'good.' In the next story, told by Grandpa, Homer plays King Kong to Marge's Fay Wray. Mr. Burns plays a maniacal millionaire who plunders the jungle in search of mythical giant gorilla. The gorilla falls in love with the millionaire's beautiful assistant and carries her to the top of the Empire State building. After a messy confrontation with the army, the gorilla and the girl get married and live happily ever after. Finally, Bart tells a story in which a spell from a book of witchcraft bring Springfield's dead to life. The only thing that can send them back to their graves is the right spell.

This Scene:
Burns: Smithers, this is a golden opportunity! If we can get him alive, we can put him on Broadway! Dead, we'll sell monkey stew to the Army!

King Homer enjoys playing and smelling Marge's hair (much to her liking). Mr. Burns instructs his armed men in how to bring down a giant Homer.

King Homer only feels a stinging sensation from the rifle bullets, and is only mildly distracted when Lenny fires a ship cannon. Placing Marge in a tree, the ape places Lenny in his mouth.

Treehouse of Horror IV (season 5) (SOLD!)

Simpsons

Episode Synopsis:
In this year's tricky triptych of terror, Bart presents three Halloween treats based on paintings in the "Fright Gallery." In the first story, Homer sells his soul to the devil (played by Ned Flanders) for a doughnut. When the devil wants to uphold Homer's side of the bargain, it's up to Marge and Lisa to argue why Homer's soul shouldn't be sucked into hell for all eternity. In the second installment, Bart has a nightmare about the school bus crashing that might just be coming true the next day during his commute. Bart spies a goblin on the side of the bus that could cause a crash, but no one believes him until it may be too late. And finally, Mr. Burns invites the Simpson family over to his castle for dinner where he bites Bart, turning him into a vampire. As Bart and his newly minted vampire friends wreak havoc, Lisa enlists Homer to kill Mr. Burns, the head vampire. When Homer drives a stake through Burns' heart (after some near misses and some outright bad aim), Lisa realizes that Burns wasn't the head vampire and that there's still the mother of all bloodsuckers to dispatch.

This Scene:
Skinner has decided to seat Uter next to Bart. Uter offers Bart another lick of his flavor wax, and Bart accepts the offer, cringing. Bart suggests that Uter loosen the ropes that bind him, and he gladly complies: "Ja, das ist gut."

Bart looks out the window again to see the gremlin continuing to remove the nuts from the wheel. He looks below his seat and sees a box of flares, but the four flares have been removed. Jimbo is the culprit this time: he's lit them and put two of them in Martin's pants. Bart goes over and grabs one without Martin noticing, but he inadvertently knocks the other one loose. So he puts it back.

He walks over to the window and pulls the "Emergency Release" lever, but the pressure difference between the air inside and outside the bus tries to suck Bart and everyone else out of the bus. He manages to keep his grip nonetheless. He brandishes the flare, and the gremlin notices. Just then, Homer drives by and blares his air-horn, greeting Bart with a cheerful "Hey, boy."

Special Notes:
Treehouse of Horror cels are highly sought after and very difficult to source! The gremlin on the bus scene is as rare as... well, gremlins on buses!!! This special original production cel setup comes matted and ready for framing.

Treehouse of Horror VII (season 8) (SOLD!)

Simpsons

Episode Synopsis:
In this year's spooky series of Halloween stories, Bart discovers that he has a special new sibling, Lisa discovers that she is a God to a race of tiny people, and the American people discover that Bill Clinton and Bob Dole are actually aliens Kang and Kodos. In the first segment, Bart investigates noises from the attic and learns that his formerly conjoined twin, Hugo, is locked up there. Hugo is a wild, fish head-eating savage who was locked away because Dr. Hibbert determined that he was evil at birth. When Hugo captures Bart and tries to sew himself back together with his brother, it's up to the doctor to save the good twin. But can he tell for sure which is which? In the second tale, Lisa generates microscopic life inside a plastic tub that quickly evolves into a full-blown species of tiny humans. The tiny people consider Lisa their God. In the final story, Kang and Kodos beam Homer aboard the spacecraft and ask him who the President is. Homer thinks it might be Bill Clinton…or is it Bob Dole? Kang and Kodos beam Clinton and Dole aboard, assume the identities, and both run for President. Homer makes it his mission to expose the two false candidates.

This Scene:
Homer creeps back into the house with an axe, attempting to sneak up on Bart and kill him, but Bart transforms him into a jack-in-the-box. Marge gently suggests that the two see Dr. Marvin Monroe, who says that Bart is merely desperate for paternal affection. Despite being a jack-in-the-box, Homer spends quality father-son time with Bart, and soon they become a normal, loving family.

Who Shot Mr. Burns (season 7) (SOLD!)

Simpsons

Episode Synopsis:
An entire nation tunes in with rapt attention as Mr. Burns' assailant is finally revealed. At first, all signs point to Smithers, and Burns' right-hand man confesses when confronted by the police. But new evidence emerges that clears Smithers, and Homer Simpson becomes the main suspect. Based on DNA evidence and a lack of alibi, Homer is detained by police. He escapes custody, however, and rushes to the hospital, intending to get revenge on his boss for not remembering his name. At the hospital, with members of the Springfield Police Department, the Simpsons, and various townspeople standing by Burns' bed, the true shooter is revealed. Burns points into the crowd and gasps as he recalls that Maggie Simpson shot him after a tug-of-war over a lollypop. Since Maggie cannot be tried as an adult (or even a child), no charges are brought and she is free to live out her life as a cold-blooded would-be assassin. Guest Star: Tito Puente as himself.

This Scene:
Smithers awakens from his drunken binge to find Mr. Burns in his shower; alas, it is only a dream. When he awakens for real, he discovers the truth. Mr. Burns is still alive after being shot. Smithers wonders whether he tried to kill Mr. Burns. He then confesses to a priest, but it's really a police trap and he is arrested.

Special Notes:
The cel has been signed by Mike Scully, executive producer. On the toilet of all places.... no, Mike wasn't on the toilet when he signed the cel, he signed it "on" the toilet in the scene... oh, you know what we mean! The matting has also been signed by Scully: "Smithers, I seem to be missing something very important. Mike Scully"; Includes a sketch by Jim Reardon, director: "Pinch me, I'm dreaming! Jim Reardon"; Finally it has been signed by none other than Mr Burns himself (well, ok, Harry Shearer): "Smithers - there's plenty of hot water for all! C.M. Burns".
