Later, Lucy Lawless is answering questions about ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' while dressed as the titular character, when she is abducted by the Collector (Comic Book Guy), who puts her in a mylar bag and plans to marry her. Stretch Dude and Clobber Girl run to the rescue, but are defeated by the Collector, and put into a DeathTrap. In the meantime, Lucy Lawless tricks the Collector, knocks him into his own death trap, and saves the superheroes. She then flies off into the sunset with them. Clobber Girl protests that Xena can't fly, to which Lucy replies that [[IAmNotSpock she's not Xena]], she's Lucy Lawless.

In this year's Halloween special, Marge accidentally kills Ned Flanders, Bart and Lisa become superheroes, and Homer causes a technological apocalypse when his work computer is the only one that isn't [[MillenniumBug [=Y2K=]]]-compliant.

In this year's Halloween special,
!I Know What You Diddly-Iddly-Did

The Simpsons are driving on a foggy night, and since Homer forgot to put the fog lights on,
Marge accidentally kills pulls over to be safe. She ends up hitting Ned Flanders. No one else is there, but when they're returning from Flanders' funeral, they find that someone has painted 'I know what you did' on their door, freaking the family out, since it means that someone saw them kill Flanders.

That night, while the family is sitting at the couch during a thunderstorm, the phone rings ominously. Homer picks it up, and the voice at the other end says "I know you're alone". But wait, Homer's not alone. The voice asks if it's Maude
Flanders, Bart and Lisa become superheroes, on being told that he's speaking to Homer Simpson, apologizes. Turns out, it's Moe, and he had the wrong number. Then, a flash of lightning illuminates the room- and reveals that 'I know what you did' has been written all over the walls.

The family sees a dark figure in a raincoat, carrying a hook. They run away, but the car has also been covered with 'I know what you did'. They drive away,
and Homer causes pleads with God to save his life. Right then, the car runs out of gas, and the raincoated figure is right behind them. Homer directs the family to hiding places (the abandoned amusement park, the pet cemetery, the spooky roller disco, the lake where the sexy teens were killed a technological apocalypse hundred years ago tonight), but before they can, the raincoat-wearing person catches up to them. Turns out, it's Flanders.

Marge says that it's impossible for him to be alive, since she killed him, but Flanders says that they can't kill the undead. Turns out, he was attacked by a werewolf just before she hit him. Also, the moon is full tonight. The family runs away, leaving Homer behind to be attacked by Werewolf!Flanders.

! Desperately Xeeking Xena

This short opens while the police are x-raying candy to see if it's safe (and some of it isn't- one kid's bag has a hidden razor blade and syringe). One kid tries to force a large bag of candy through the machine, resulting in it breaking and spewing beams of radiation around the room. Lisa and Bart are hit by one, which throws them against a wall, and a set of bleachers falls on Lisa. Principal Skinner is horrified that she's been crushed- now what will happen to their mathletics team?

But then she gets up, holding the bleachers over her head. She then throws them through the roof and into the sky. The X-Rays gave her SuperStrength. Bart wonders if he got powers, and stretches his eyeballs to look around himself. At first he thinks he didn't, before he catches on to what he's doing. Bart realizes that he has stretching powers, and proclaims that he must "only use this power to annoy". He then proceeds to use it to mess with Principal Skinner. Lisa tells Bart that with their powers, they can become superheros. And, as Stretch Dude and Clobber Girl, that is exactly what they do.

Later, Lucy Lawless is answering questions about ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' while dressed as the titular character,
when she is abducted by the Collector (Comic Book Guy), who puts her in a mylar bag and plans to marry her. Stretch Dude and Clobber Girl run to the rescue, but are defeated by the Collector, and put into a DeathTrap. In the meantime, Lucy Lawless tricks the Collector, knocks him into his work computer is own death trap, and saves the only one superheroes. She then flies off into the sunset with them. Clobber Girl protests that isn't [[MillenniumBug [=Y2K=]]]-compliant.Xena can't fly, to which Lucy replies that [[IAmNotSpock she's not Xena]], she's Lucy Lawless.

! Life's a Glitch, Then You Die

It's near midnight on December 31, 1999, and Springfield anxiously awaits the new millennium. However, Homer forgets to update his work computer, leading to the Y2K bug running rampant. Everything with a computer chip (including a carton of milk) fails, and cue ApocalypseAnarchy. While the family are walking through Springfield, they see a rocket, which will be used to send the best and brightest of humanity to start a new civilization on Mars. Lisa is allowed on, but she can only choose one of her parents. She immediately chooses her mother, and Lisa, Marge, and Maggie get on the rocket.

Homer and Bart are upset about being left behind, but then they see another rocket, this one unguarded. They get on and the rocket blasts off, but while they're on it, they realize that the rest of the passengers are various washed-up celebrities. And then only Lisa's rocket goes towards Mars- the rocket Bart and Homer are on is headed for the sun. As the celebrities start up a musical number, Bart reassures his father that at least they'll be dead in 5 minutes. Homer says "Not fast enough!" and ejects them both into space, where they smile with relief as their heads swell up and pop offscreen.
