The Simpsons: Rednecks and Broomsticks

After the family is involved in a car accident on their way home from a skiing trip, they lose their car, but Cleatus and his (large) hillbilly family have a winter house nearby and they take temporarily take care of them. However, when Lisa gets lost in a game of hide-and-seek, she meets some Wiccans (witches without brooms and pointy hats) and the next school day takes a wicked turn when everything she sees and hears resembles the witchcraft of the Wiccans. Meanwhile, Homer becomes the judge of a “moonshine” drink the hillbillies make.

Visual: Lisa checks out "Wiccapedia".

"Wiccapedia" is an obvious parody of the world-famous Wikipedia, which is a world-wide centre for free knowledge (though a lot of information written may be incorrect as no source is provided and users can write/edit/remove articles themselves without needing approval). The menu Lisa is looking at resembles the one on the front page on Wikipedia, although the different selections are languages on Wikipedia and trademarks of Wiccans on Wiccapedia.
