You read that right. Entertainment Weekly reports that the iconic yellow skinned family will be meeting the early Tracey Ullman-version of themselves in this years' Treehouse of Horror episode. The crossover will be a take on The Others and follow the Simpsons as they "are haunted by another ghostly family living in the house."
Oddly enough, this will be the first time the pre-show family will have a prominent story - they'd been featured as gags for years. Cast members will have to dig deep in order to find their past voices. It should be easy enough for Dan Castellaneta but Julie Kavner will have to make her voice deeper and more gravely.
Producer Al Jean is excited for this crossover to happen:
“We’ve implied that they were murdered and buried under the house, so this is expanding that thought,” says Jean, adding: “If people want a real Halloween bloodbath, they get it.”
The episode airs on October 19 on FOX.
