Neil Gaiman lends his voice to The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horrors

I love Halloween, and one of my favorite Halloween traditions is the newest "Treehouse of Horrors" episode of The Simpsons. Every season since Season 2, the show has done a trio of horror (or, in later seasons, horror-lite) stories to shock and horrify.

This season, we don't yet know what all the stories will be, but a series of tweets from Neil Gaiman gave us big clues.

That's right, Gaiman will be voicing Snowball II in a Coraline parody.

Gaiman has appeared on The Simpsons before. In Season 23, Gaiman played himself in the episode "The Book Job," a spoof on heist movies like Ocean's Eleven or The Italian Job. Homer schemes to put together a team that can write the next multimillion-dollar tween book franchise, including Bart, Patty, Moe, Skinner, and Professor Frink. Neil Gaiman overhears them scheming, and offers his services -- but he is utilized as little more than a go-fer. By episode's end, however, Gaiman steals the novel and sells it as his own. He has "heisted himself onto the best-seller list once again."

The Simpsons "Treehouse of Horror" episode is scheduled to air October 22.
