I just watched Treehouse of Horror VII today on the Treehouse of Horror disc. The opening sequence seemed to be edited in a very unusual way. It had the very beginning, with Homer's hand getting burned, then it jumped to Death on the coach, with the family running in (the couch gag, I assume), then a cut to the TV with only the credit "Created by Rat Groening," followed by the "Developed by" credit. The episode has a time code of 22:47, and the first chapter (the opening) :26. There's absolutely no mention of "Simpsons Halloween Special VII" on the screen as with the other episodes. Is this the syndicated cut of the opening, or is that how it originally aired because the episode was long? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks. And the time code on my player doesn't skip at all, so it's a player issue, I don't believe.
