What Makes The “Dead Bart” Theory So Creepy?

If you’re a fan of The Simpsons or just someone who enjoys Creepypastas, then you’ve definitely heard of “Dead Bart”. It’s one of the most famous cartoon theories to ever hit the internet and it’s been around for a while now. In the midst of Halloween time, it’s a must that we truly analyze one of the creepiest lost episode stories ever written. For those who can’t fathom what exactly a Creepypasta is, it’s simply a label for internet horror stories.

Dead Bart was written on by a user named KI Simpson on January 19th, 2010. Yes, this story turned 7 years old this year but it feels like it was only yesterday that I first read it on the Creepypasta wiki and didn’t sleep for days, but what makes this story so creepy? In fact, what makes most Creepypastas & lost episode stories so spine-chilling that it keeps most people awake at night & possibly in need of therapy? Well, let’s first get into the outline of the story. Dead Bart surrounds an individual who claims to have come across a bizarre & morbid lost episode of The Simpsons, which involves Bart Simpson getting sucked out of an airplane and falling 50 feet to his death. Not only does the description of Bart’s fatal accident give off an eerie tone, but the supposed reaction of the rest of the Simpsons family is just plain disturbing.

“Act one ended with the shot of Bart’s corpse. When act two started, Homer, Marge, and Lisa were sitting at their table, crying. The crying went on and on, it got more pained, and sounded more realistic, better acting than you would think possible. The animation started to decay even more as they cried, and you could hear murmuring in the background. The characters could barely be made out, they were stretching and blurring, they looked like deformed shadows with random bright colors thrown on them.”

I think we partially found the answer behind the unpleasant tones that most Creepypastas have. Bart’s death and the Simpson family’s reaction was really unsettling, as it provided a dramatic and eerie visual and audio description in the story. As you may know, the creepypasta came with a 4-minute video that is supposedly from this “lost episode”. Of course, the video is very grainy & hard to make out, but still bizarre and unsettling nonetheless. Since the first Dead Bart video emerged, there have been many parody ones that followed that are just as creepy as the original.

The morbid art behind Dead Bart can also be the cause of this horrifying internet story going viral. Take a look at the original art that can be shown on the creepypasta page of the story. It shows a dead & decaying Bart surrounded by fire that just gives you the shivers as soon as you look at it. Of course, this theory was debunked by executive producer Al Jean, but it’s still a creepy story that is sure to put you in the Halloween spirit.
