Treehouse of Horror III – “Clown Without Pity”
When Homer forgot to buy Bart a birthday present, he comes to the House of Evil shop to buy him something. Evil Shopkeeper then suggests to him to purchase a Krusty Doll. Homer then purchases the doll and also takes himself free frogurt. He is then warned that both items he had purchased are cursed.
Upon receiving the Krusty doll, Bart excitedly says “Great Caesar’s ghost!”, a catchphrase said by Perry White of the Superman comic book series. Although the doll is nice to Bart, it repeatedly tries to kill Homer (which no one believes). Homer captures the evil Krusty in a bag of dirty socks, which he then locks in a suitcase. He disposes of the suitcase in a “Bottomless Pit” and returns home, not realizing that the doll has managed to follow him. As the doll attempts to strangle Homer, Marge calls KrustyCo for help; a repairman arrives and discovers that the doll has been accidentally switched from “Good” to “Evil.” He flips the switch back to “Good” and Homer uses the doll as a servant. The Krusty doll laments to his “girlfriend” Malibu Stacy, with whom he shares Lisa’s doll house, “Today Homer made me give him a sponge bath!” However, the scene ends happily as Krusty gives Stacy a smooch on the cheek—until her head falls off.
