This one begins a run of the specials that have very short openings.
It begins with the beating of hoofs along a road, and the reveal of a headless horseman.
The horseman lifts a head up from the side of the horse. The head of Krusty the Clown.
Smashing into the camera, out of the ichor appears the shows title.
And cutting to the couch gag, it has the Simpsons hanging themselves...or was it murder.
This last one gave us this...
