* UnexplainedRecovery: Willie is alive again without explanation after his ghost is defeated. This is possibly a reference to how Freddy Krueger always came back.



* VillainDecay: Willie has come back to life (somehow) and attempts to threaten the Simpson children again but is now much less competent than he was while he was a spirit, losing both his gun and one of his shoes.

* VillainDecay: Willie has come back to life (somehow) and attempts to threaten the Simpson children again but is now much less competent than he was while he was a spirit, losing both his gun and one of his shoes. This is likely a reference to Freddy Krueger becoming a more comical figure over the many sequels to ''[[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984 A Nightmare On Elm Street.''

* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Martin's death throes. No violence discretion shot for him.



* LighterAndSofter: Compared to the rather grisly fifth ''THOH'' special, ''THOH VI'' is pretty light.

* LighterAndSofter: Compared to the rather grisly fifth ''THOH'' special, ''THOH VI'' is pretty light. That said, it still has some ''very'' dark moments, such as Martin and Willie's death.

** "That's weird...it's like something out of the [[Series/TheTwilightZone twilighty show about that zone]]...". Incidentially, this line is from "Homer³", and its plot is a ShoutOut of ''The Twilight Zone'' episode "Little Girl Lost", where a little girl ends up in the fifth dimension.

* WrongGenreSavvy: Marge tells Homer to give Lard Lad back the doughnut in order to stop the rampaging advertisement mascots, so Homer reluctantly does. At first, it looks like that Lard Lad turned back into a normal statue...[[BaitAndSwitch but then he started using the doughnut to cause even more destruction]].
-->'''Homer''': ''(To Marge)'' Don't you get tired of being wrong all the time?
-->'''Marge''': Sometimes.

Back in the Simpsons' home, Ned has no idea where Homer is. Reverend Lovejoy instructs Homer to "move into the light," which turns out to be a bad idea. Dr. Hibbert asks him what it's like, and Homer describes it as being like ''Film/{{Tron}}.'' Unfortunately, absolutely no one else has seen that movie. Professor Frink explains where Homer is- he's in the 3rd dimension.

Professor Frink explains where Homer is- he's in the 3rd dimension.

Homer demands they actually ''help him''. Wiggum fires his gun at the portal-wall. This just gives Homer some 3-d bullets to avoid. Homer has to quickly run away from the now rapidly-expanding black hole, and Grandpa Simpson walks up in an old-fashioned diving suit, declaring that he'll save Homer. Frink stops him, but when Homer again pleads for help, Bart ties a rope to his waist and goes in after Homer.

Bart fights Willie, but the fight goes badly. Lisa appears to help him out. Bart's happy at first, and then realizes that if she's there, then she has fallen asleep, which she wasn't supposed to do. Willie attacks again- and the two are saved by Maggie and her pacifier. The next morning, it turns out that Willie has come back to life, but he's significantly less threatening than he was as a spirit. He leaves his gun on the bus and has to chase after it, while a Yakety Sax-style Simpsons Theme plays.
