The Simpsons Christmas episode “I Won’t Be Home for Christmas” ended with a peculiar preview for the following episode “The Man Who Came to Be Dinner,” in which the Simpson family is abducted by aliens Kang and Kodos. Even Homer commented, “What the!? This is isn’t Halloween.” The aliens take them to their home planet Rigel VII for dinner but they probably won’t be hungry after witnessing an alien birth. A female alien pushes out a brood of the slimy creatures, which in turn give birth to more and so on.
The Simpsons “The Man Who Came to Be Dinner” premieres Jan 4, Sunday 8PM on Fox.
