I got an idea! Let's list episode titles from any show and what the name parodies. But I'm limiting only 10 per post. But, you can have as many posts as you damn well want. I'll start.

"Treehouse of Horror X"

"E-I-E-I-D'oh!"- E-I-E-I-O (song)
"Hello Gutter, Hello Fadder"- Hello Mudder, Hello Fadder (song)
"Take My Wife, Sleaze"- Take My Wife, Please (ancient joke)
"Grift of the Magi"- Gift of the Magi (story)
"Saddlesore Gallactica"- Battlestar Gallactica (TV Show)
"Kill the Alligator and Run"- Take the Money and Run (movie)

"Rosebud... Yes, Rosebud frozen peas. Full of country goodness and green pea-ness. ...wait, that's terrible. I quit! ...just a handful for the road. ...oh, what luck. There's a french fry stuck in my beard."
 - Orson Welles, "The Critic"

Otis, The Honking is a straight parody (in some places) of The Howling, a werewolf film. The Haunting was also very very craptacular.

No idea if I can spell this right...

"Simpsoncaralasticasiosexpeala(annoyed grunt)ious" (  confused ) sums up that nearly the entire episode is a parody of Mary Poppins.

I think it might be taken from the title of an obscure play by some guy named William.

Call it a hunch, but I think the title parody might be of that obscure classic novel by Dostoevsky published in 1866.

Next you'll be telling us "The Principal and the Pauper" wasn't parodied from the 1990 Disney short "The Prince and the Pauper," and it was actually parodied from the Mark Twain story of the same name.

Sorry, but I'm wasn't correcting you.  The way I see it a Title parody can parody to things.  The Honking, that could have also been parodying the Haunting.  After all they did start the episode in a "haunted" house.  People can get mixed opinions about title parodies.
