The Simpsons Sneak Peek: Watch Homer Pay Homage to Halloween

Here’s a piece of friendly advice: If you ever find yourself being stalked by “vengeful seasonal thugs,” Homer Simpson will be of absolutely no help to you.

The Simpsons on Sunday (Fox, 8/7c) debuts its first-ever Halloween episode — separate from its annual “Treehouse of Horror” series, which airs. Oct. 25 — and it actually looks kind of terrifying.

In TVLine’s exclusive sneak peek of Sunday’s big event, Homer does his best to distract Lisa from an apparent crew of creepers… but in true Simpsons fashion, he only makes the situation worse. Much worse.
