Neil Gaiman Will Lend His Voice To The Simpsons' Own Halloween Coraline Parody

As certain as the sun rises and sets, every year we get a Simpsons Treehouse of Horror special — but the 2017 edition is recruiting legendary writer Neil Gaiman. Not to pen a story, but to star in an homage to his dark fantasy novel Coraline.

Gaiman revealed the news on Twitter today, ahead of the 28th annual Treehouse of Horrors premiere in a few weeks. After asking fans to guess which character he'd be voicing — the answer: Beloved Simpsons family cat Snowball II — Gaiman posted the first image from the short, which sees Lisa crawling through the mysterious passageway that, in the novel and the 2009 stop-motion adaptation, leads to the creepy world of the button-eyed Other Mother and Other Father.

It isn't the first time Gaiman has appeared on the show — that honour belongs to the season 23 episode "The Book Job", where he played himself — but it's going to take some getting used to, hearing his voice emanating from Snowball the cat.

The Simpsons' "Treehouse of Horror XXVIII" airs in the US on October 22.
