* TooDumbToLive: Despite finding the vampire lair, Lisa and Bart should've beat feet back to the dining room and tried to warn their parents instantly. Instead they linger around long enough for the vampires within to awaken before finally fleeing. Even then, Bart winds up getting caught and bitten because he couldn't resist the lure of a "Super Fun Happy Slide''.

Some time later, the family is traveling at night to Pennsylvania, where Burns has invited them to dinner. At the manor there's even more obvious evidence of Burns being a vampire (i.e.: he mentions the family being "fresh victims of his ever growing army of the undead" over the entrance's intercom, his shadow has a life of its own, the "punch" served is blood, etc.) but only Lisa notices. Lisa "accidentally" spills the "punch" on Bart and her and they head off to get cleaned up. As they head back they discover Burns' vampire lair (oddly easily accessible) and investigate. As Lisa looks through Burns' autobiography ''Yes I Am a Vampire'', Burns' vampire minions rise and advance on the two. The kids flee but Bart stops when he sees a lever for a "Super Happy Fun Slide". Knowing it's a trap, Bart pulls it anyway and slides back down into the lair...where a group of vampires are waiting for him. A vampire woman pulls him off the slide and pins him down as the rest of the undead minions gather around him and bare their fangs menacingly. In flies a bat who morphs into Mr. Burns himself and Bart is presented to him. Though forgetful of Bart's name ("Well if isn't little..uh...boy"), Burns is more then happy to feed on his blood.
