— Marge the Witch's unlock message.
Marge the Witch is a limited time costume released during the Treehouse of Horror XXIII Event and was re-released during the subsequent Treehouse of Horror Events. Marge the Witch is the only way to speed up crops at Cletus's Farm without using donuts. Each time she does her task "speed up crops" it rushes the crop's growing time by four hours. Because of this Marge the Witch is greatly envied by players who weren't able to get her during the Halloween update.
In 1649 the town of Sprynge-Fielde is witness to many witch burnings. Later, in the church, the townspeople try to figure out whom to condemn next. People start accusing others and soon they erupt into chaos, until Marge intervenes. She tries to talk sense into the townspeople, but Moe accuses her of being a witch. Mayor Quimby assures her that she is entitled to due process which means she will be thrown off a cliff with a broomstick. If she is a witch she will be able to fly to safety, in which case the authorities expect her to report back for punishment. If she is not a witch, then she will fall to an honorable Christian death.
Lisa tries to speak on her mother's behalf, but to no avail and Marge gets shoved off the cliff by Wiggum's henchmen. But As Reverend Lovejoy speaks to the mob about having done the Lord's work, they hear a cackle and all look up, stunned to see that a green-skinned black haired Marge is flying on the broomstick, as she really is a witch and an evil one, who vows to conquer the town. She returns to her elderly sisters Patty and Selma in their mountain lair close to Sprynge-Fielde. The sisters watch Ned Flanders and Maude Flanders talking about how the witches eat their children, thus giving them the idea in the first place. The three set off for Sprynge-Fielde on their broomsticks. They knock on the Flanders' door and demand the kids. They put the children in sacks and are about to leave, then when Maude offers the witches gingerbread men instead. The witches like these better than the kids and let Rod & Todd go. They go to each house, getting goodies in exchange for not eating the children. Marge remarks that she wishes they hadn't eaten so many children before they got to the Flanders' house. And As they fly off, the Sea Captain says that is how the tradition of Halloween and trick or treating started (as well as the first "Caramel Cod"), with Maude Flanders' quick thinking leading to Halloween we all know today.
The next year, the whole town is celebrating Halloween. Homer and several others are egging the door of a house for not responding. Lisa points out that it is their house making everyone laugh. But When everyone starts laughing at him, he then accuses Lisa of being a witch, prompting the townspeople to start chasing her down the street in the moonlight.

- This costume is from the Treehouse of Horror VIII episode (Easy-Bake Coven).
- The "Speed Up a Crop" job is special, since none of the other characters or costumes can speed up an object being built or grown.
- "Speed Up a Crop" is slightly weird. When speeding up a crop with below 8 hours remaining only half of the remaining time is rushed. However, when leaving Springfield (e.g. visiting Krustyland) and returning the remaining half will be rushed as well.
- If a crop is speeded up when below 4 hours it is possible to leave Springfield and returning to have the crop fully completed. Furthermore, if a new crop is planted while Marge the Witch is still performing her "Speed Up a Crop" task and the user is leaving and returning to Springfield the new crop will also be rushed.
