I don’t know who decided that everyone on Twitter has to edit their name to say something “spooky” for Halloween, but: stop it’s confusing, and SIMPSONS DID IT. The “scary name” change has been a trademark of the show since the second installment of the Treehouse of Horror series, courtesy of a suggestion from producer Al Jean, when Homer bought a cursed monkey’s paw in 1991. (It was retired for “Treehouse of Horror XII” and “Treehouse of Horror XIII,” but fans revolted and it’s been a staple ever since.) The quality of The Simpsons may have dipped since the early 1990s, but the opening and closing “Treehouse” credits get better and better every year.

Here’s the best “scary name” change for every episode.
