Addicts Bracket Challenge: Best THOH Segment…and the Winner Is

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.

Today, we begin the fourth and FINAL Voting for TSTO Addicts’ Best THOH Segment Bracket Battle to crown our Segment Champion!  Details about this Bracket Battle can be found at Addicts Bracket Challenge: Best THOH Segment Round 1, Part 1

After 4 Rounds of voting and nearly 50,000 votes over the past three weeks, we finally have a winner. And the winner is…

Should I Spend Donuts On THOH Flashback Bundle #4 or Count Burns?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Halloween in our pocket-size Springfields!  Yes that magical time of the year when our towns turn dark, our water becomes mucky, there are monsters everywhere to battle and (as with all events) there are LOADS of items from Halloweens past to spend those sprinkles on!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks as awesome as this because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Halloween Flashback Bundle 4 or Count Burns to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your Springfield…

Happy Halloween!

Hey Howdy Tappers!

Happy Halloween everyone! Today’s the day for Tricks & Treats, Pranks & Candy, Goblins & Ghouls…it’s the day we’ve been celebrating over and over again since the THOH update hit!


As many of you know…Halloween isn’t exactly my favorite holiday.  In fact I downright strongly dislike it.  Nevertheless I’ll still be celebrating with the Tiny Addict later today, as she celebrates her first Halloween dressed as Snow White, and trying to eat all the candy!


How will you be celebrating Halloween?  Trick-or-treating?  Scary Movie athon? Turning off all of your lights and pretending no one’s home so you get out of giving candy?

Don’t forget to check the site later tonight for the announcement of the winner of the THOH Bracket Challenge!
