I don't know why I have taken to spending so much time on Twitter recently as I've never really understood the point of it, but I have been lurking there a lot this week. For much of yesterday, one of the top trending topics was "horror sitcoms". In celebration of the fact that I have been waking up at regular intervals all night having thought of new ones, and because the fleeting nature of Twitter means it's hard to have a long term record, I'm bringing in to LJ.

There follows some of my best work. Please contribute!

  • Omen Behaving Badly
  • The Stephen King's IT Crowd
  • Only Ghouls and Hearses
  • May to Dismember

You get the idea, so do your worst, LJ!

Excellent work! "Are You Being Severed" came up yesterday and was one of my favourites, but I particularly like "To the Massacre Born".

Completely agreed re Hi-de-Fucking-Hi and all related spin-offs.

Meh, I don't watch sitcoms any more.

All I can come up with is "Outnumbered (by zombies)".

Hmm, there's no case law either way, but I'm pretty sure a vindictive policeman could nick you for desecrating a corpse...

I suppose the defence would hang on whether or not it could be considered "reasonable force".

"One Foot In The Grave." Oh, hang on...

When I first read this, I thought you meant actual sitcoms with a horror-related theme, ie :
The Munsters
The Addams Family
Being Human
Randall And Hopkirk Deceased (well, it made me laugh)

Doh! Although, I'm surprised at how many I could come up with off the top of my head...

Damn you. I was going to do The Birds (of a feather) but thought I'd check the comments first.

I nearly went for "Alfred Hitchcock's The Liver Birds", but opted for "... of a Feather" in the end.

Slightly more obscure, Lars von Trier's Kingdom, in which Stephen Fry plays the decidedly unhinged and incompetent chief of staff at a haunted hospital situated in Norfolk.
