Simpsons Serve Up Burgers And Frights

Just in time for Halloween and Fox’s annual spooky Simpsons special, Treehouse of Horror XII (Nov. 3), participating Burger King restaurants are unleashing Simpsons Creepy Classics. The scary movie-inspired toys will be available in Big Kids Meals and Kids Meals for four weeks beginning Oct. 14.

The Simpsons Creepy Classics toys each come with a movable figure and a transforming Spooky Screen that plays a Simpsons spoof of a popular horror film.

To push the promotion, ad agency Campbell-Mithun, working with The Simpsons creative team, have produced an animated TV commercial featuring Homer, Bart, Marge, Lisa, Maggie and the green, tentacled alien, Kang.
