* DownerEnding: The third segment has [[spoiler: Springfield still in ruins three years after Kang and Kodos took over the town, with the aliens bemoaning that the humans still hate their presence, it's implied that they're all enslaved and dissected and with explosions going off every so often.]] This isn't helped by the gloomy-sounding instrumental of the closing theme song heard in the credits.
