Episodes[edit]

Picture Season Episode number Episode name Reference
Treehouse of Horror IV promo.gif 5 86 "Treehouse of Horror IV" The third segment, ‘Bart Simpson’s Dracula’, is largely a parody of the 1992 film “Bram Stoker’s Dracula”, with Mr. Burns appearing dressed up as Dracula in that movie. Waylon Smithers plays the part of Dracula’s servant Renfield. The scenes where Dracula’s shadow are cast against the wall is a reference to a famous scene from the Dracula movie ‘Nosferatu’ (1922), as well as scenes in ‘Bram Stoker’s Dracula’ where Dracula’s shadow is not in sync with his movements. Mr. Burns’ mansion is located in Pennsylvania, a pun on Dracula’s home province Transylvania in Romania. Grampa appears near the end and says: I'm a vampire and I've come to suck your blood, which is a standard way of imitating Béla Lugosi in the 1932 film Dracula, even though Lugosi never said any line remotedly close to this. It was derived from comedians imitating him this way.
