Simpsons Halloween Special

The Simpsons family learns why it pays to go veg in their 20th annual Halloween special.

Fans of The Simpsons are familiar with the much anticipated "Treehouse of Horror" episode that airs every year around Halloween. The special episode aired Sunday, and one of the three scary stories had a decidedly veg twist. In the vignette, "Don't Have A Cow, Mankind," Krusty the Clown unveils a new hamburger at his fast-food chain, dubbed the Burger Squared, telling consumers that it was created by "starting with Grade A beef, feeding it to other cows and then serving the unholy results on a seven grain bun." The burger is tainted and turns the people of Springfield into zombies. Longtime vegan Apu rescues the Simpson family, but doesn't fare so well himself.
