‘The Simpsons’ Invites Fans to Create Their Kreepiest Krusty for ‘Treehouse of Horror’

Creatively, creepily bent fans of The Simpsons have the opportunity of an afterlifetime this month, as the record-breaking FOX animated series launches The Simpsons Halloween Fan Art Contest.

Artistic viewers are invited to send in their scariest fan art featuring Springfield’s own Krusty the Clown for a chance to have their wonderfully weird work aired during the end credits of a terrifying new Halloween episode, “Treehouse of Horror Presents: Not It,” airing October 23 at 8 p.m. / 7 p.m. Central on FOX (streaming the next day on Hulu).

Episode synopsis: When a supernatural clown starts slaying the children of Kingfield, young Homer Simpson teams up with other middle school misfits to face their fears and defeat the mysterious monster. But years later, the evil clown returns, and Homer’s friends must confront the tragedy of their adult lives to destroy Krusto once and for all in the all-new “Not It” episode of The Simpsons.

The contest is open to legal residents of the U.S. & D.C. ages 18 and older, from today (Sept. 29) to October 9, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. ET. For more information and to submit your scary tribute, visit TheSimpsonsHalloweenFanArtContest.com.

The Simpsons creator Matt Groening has delivered a double dose of coulrophobia in his own example artwork, tuned to the episode’s theme inspired by Stephen King’s IT.
