Homer uses the power of flatuence to communicate with people after getting paralyzed by a spider bite in "The Diving Bell and The Butterball," Flanders becomes a murderer for the Lord in "Dial 'D' for 'Diddly'," and Bart and Milhouse pose as the natives on an alien planet in order to steal a rare element in the ([[WereStillRelevantDammit rather dated]]) ''Avatar'' parody, "In the Na'vi."

!! Tropes:

* AffectionateParody: The ThreeShorts are parodies to ''SpiderMan'' and ''The Diving Bell and the Butterfly'', ''Series/{{Dexter}}'' and ''Film/{{Avatar}}''. Abe Simpson thought there would be one of ''Film/BlackSwan''.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: After having his mind inserted into an Avatar, Bart wished for five minutes with his enemies. They then showed up as Avatars as well.
* BigNo: Homer when he realized his candy bag contained vegetables instead of candies.
* BrokenPedestal: Flanders learns that God takes orders from the Devil and the Devil is sleeping with his deceased wife, Maude.
* {{Fanservice}}: While is paralyzed, Homer has a clear view of Marge's tits and thinking "Cleavage".
* PiranhaProblem: The alien birds attack by dropping eggs from their pouches, which hatch into schools of piranha.
* TemptingFate: Flanders asked how things could be worse. His deceased wife was dating the devil.
