* LogoJoke: The [[Creator/JamesLBrooks Gracie Films]] fanfare is played on a pipe organ and is preceded by a scream, though this isn't always the case[[note]]The first ''TOH'' featured the regular jingle, since the episode is considered canon. The pipe organ version was installed for ''II'', and the woman's scream came along in ''IV''. On two occasions, the logos weren't Halloween-related at all: in ''IV'', the jingle was done in the style of ''{{VideoGame/Myst}}''/Philip Glass, continuing on the closing credits theme, which was done the same way; in ''XIX'', the jingle was done in the style of "Linus and Lucy", AKA The {{Peanuts}} Theme. And sometimes, the woman's scream is placed by another sound effect, such as Regis Philbin screaming, "My eyes, my beautiful eyes!" in ''IX'', and sometimes, a scream from Homer is heard.[[/note]].

* AesopCollateralDamage: Parodied in a "Treehouse of Horror" episode where the entire family suffered painful transformations all because Homer insulted a gypsy woman. All Homer had to do was [[CurseEscapeClause apologize]], and he would've resurrected his ''dead son''.

Added DiffLines:

* ComedicSociopathy: These specials take the show's more moderate BlackComedy and crank it UpToEleven, with the main cast regularly maiming and killing each other at whim for gags. Of course it's all reset by the next segment.

Added DiffLines:

* WrongGenreSavvy: Marge and Lisa, usually the OnlySaneMan in the series proper, often find their usual logic fails within the far more surreal situations of the specials. Lampshaded in "Attack of the 50 Foot Eyesores" when Marge's voice of reasoning only makes things worse:
-->'''Homer:''' Don't you get tired of being wrong all the time?
-->'''Marge:''' ''*glum*'' Sometimes.
