2012 April 29, Nathan Rabin, â€œTV: Review: THE SIMPSONS (CLASSIC): â€œTreehouse of Horror IIIâ€ (season 4, episode 5; originally aired 10/29/1992)â€:
â€œClown Without Pity,â€ as the segment is called, opens with Homer forgetting Bartâ€™s birthday and jetting off at the last minute (or rather considerably after the last minute) to pick him up a present. Alas, Homer has the questionable judgment to go gift-shopping at House Of Evil, an establishment that bills itself as â€œYour one stop evil shop.â€ That should be a bit of a warning, as is the establishmentâ€™s name.
