SEE! Zombies Return to The Simpsons

The latest The Simpsons Halloween special, "Treehouse of Horror XX," brings zombies back to Springfield after a seventeen year absence.

This year, the zombies have returned in the segment "Don't Have a Cow, Mankind". Compare this year to 1992's "Treehouse of Horror III," in which Bart raises the undead in the classic segment titled "Dial 'Z' For Zombies." Just as "Dial 'Z' For Zombies" took its cue from the undead films of the 80s and 90s, "Don't Have a Cow, Mankind" takes its cure from the modern "infected" version of zombies.

You can watch the entirety of "Treehouse of Horror XX" above (the zombie segment is the second segment.)
