SPOILER: Pokemon, Adventure Time and Archer characters in latest Simpson episodes

It must be so hard to come up with fresh ideas after so long.  So why not continue ripping off paying homage to other cartoon phenomena?  

The Simpsons aired its annual ‘Treehouse of Horror’ episode last night, and in the XXV instalment it gave nods to its cartoon derivatives.

The episode saw the current Simpsons family meet their more crudely drawn forebears, with Lisa questioning at its close: “I just had a worrisome thought, if there can be two incarnations of The Simpsons, why couldn’t some evil marketing entity produce millions of others?”

Cue eight different versions of the Simpsons parading into the house.

A 3D version from an earlier series went in first, followed by a Pokemon inspired version complete with Maggie as Pikachu and Santa’s Little Helper as Charizard.

Then came the Adventure Time edition, with Bart and SLH as Finn and Jake and Homer as Ice King, followed by South Park, Archer, French and Lego imaginations of the family.

Despicable Me was the final animation to get a nod, with the Simpsons being depicted as the film’s Minions.

Here’s a short clip of this year’s Halloween special
