Here's a clip of old Simpsons (from The Tracy Ullman Sow). It sounds like a Theremin at the end.

Does anyone know which season and/or episode in which the theremin makes its appearance? I own every season that is currently out, but I aquired many of the DVD sets before I started playing. Frankly I'm too busy practicing and working a day job to sift through every episode. Just wondering...

I think this has come up before.

This is from memory - the sound of "spooky" music precedes them entering the attic. Amongst the items stored - er, I think below a window - is a theremin. It's only on screen for a moment, and is partially obscured, but it seems to be a left-handed ethervox.

The label indicating it is the "property of Ned Flanders" is not visible, but I think it is a safe bet that it has one.

Thanks, Gordon. I'll have to take a significant practice break tonight, bundle up with a blanket and some rum and cider, and watch a few episodes. Let the investigation begin...

I remember it mentioned as sound cue in one of the halloween episodes where Homer says ..."the room where the theremin music is coming from".
Wow... B3-Aaron, wonder what happened to him.

Dan, Thank you for your post from the 2nd. I don't know how my eyes skimmed over it. I sometimes excel at oversight!
