Homer needs to do a good deed before he can go into Heaven in ''G-G-G-Ghost D-D-D-Dad'', the Simpson kids get lost in a warped fairy tale world in ''Scary Tales Can Come True'', and dolphins rise from the waters to take over Springfield in ''Night of The Dolphins''.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: The dolphins are this in the third story, especially after their king is freed, who then declares war on humans.
* BalefulPolymorph: Homer in the second story gets transformed by the wicked witch into [[spoiler:a fish-headed chicken with broom for wings. Apparently he can ''lay eggs'']]
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:The evil dolphins win the war, and banish all of Springfield to the sea.]]
* BrickJoke: A deleted scene showed that Abe would have exploded out of a dolphin after being swallowed by one earlier.
