The Oct. 18 broadcast of the show's annual "Treehouse of Horror" Halloween episode featured a spin on Stephen Sondheim's musical Sweeney Todd.  The segment, titled "There's No Business Like Moe Business" was a stage performance of a musical concerning Homer Simpson's death and a specially-flavored microbrew served at Moe's Tavern.  In less than seven minutes, the show managed to reference and skewer The Phantom of the Opera, homophobia and bad audience behavior.
