The Simpsons, "Treehouse of Horror V" — 1994
Every single "Treehouse of Horror" Simpsons episode is an instant classic, but if we had to choose one to take with us to a desert island for whatever reason, it would unquestionably be seasons six's installation. This would take the top spot for it's brilliant Shining parody "The Shinning" alone, but the episode also features the short where Homer unsuccessfully time travels (a genuinely formative influence on my thoughts re: time travel), and the one where Springfield Elementary's staff eat all the students. It's almost too good to be true.
