Addicts Bracket Challenge: Best THOH Segment Round 1, Part 1

Guess who’s back, back again
Bracket’s back, tell a friend
Guess who’s back, guess who’s back?
Guess who’s back, guess who’s back?
Guess who’s back, guess who’s back?
Guess who’s back?

I’ve created a monster, ’cause nobody wants to see Safi no more
They want Bracket, I’m chopped liver
Well if you want Bracket, then this is what I’ll give ya
A little bit of treehouse mixed with some horror

Now this looks like a job for bracket
So everybody just follow the racket
‘Cause we need a little controversy
‘Cause it feels so empty without me

Take that Marshall Bruce Mathers III, aka Eminem. Yes, the Bracket Battle is back again with a very special Halloween twist this October!

We present to you TSTO Addicts’ Best THOH Segment Bracket Battle.

Below you’ll find all 81 beloved THOH segments that will have aired in the first 600 episodes of The Simpsons up to and including this seasons’ THOH XXVII. The segments have been organized into three conferences based on their sequential appearance in each THOH anthology:  first, second, or third segment. The segments will battle each other in four rounds of head-to-head-to-head matchups, that we hope produce the most debate in the comments below. We’ll do our best to convince you of each segments’ merits, but it’s ultimately up to you. Twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays over the next three weeks, we’ll post the matchups and your votes over the next 48 hours will determine which segments advance to the next round, until we’ve crowned “The Best THOH Segment” on Monday October 31st.
