An example of irony in Tell-Tale Heart is when the narrator states "I was never kinder to the old man than during the whole week before I killed him." This is an example of irony because he is going to murder the old man and is showing a little joke because he was nice to him.

An example of dramatic irony in "The Tell-Tale Heart" is when the narrator insists on his sanity and rationality while confessing to a heinous crime, but his actions and thoughts throughout the story reveal his growing madness to the readers. The readers can see the disconnect between what the narrator believes about himself and what is actually happening, creating tension and suspense in the story.

How are these similar The Telltale Head as the eighth episode of The Simpsons' first season and the short story The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe?

Other than the title, The Telltale Head being a play on The Telltale Heart the similarities lie in The Telltale Heart having the narrator, who is presumably the murderer, being haunted by the sound of the victim's beating heart. Bart, who is also the narrator of The Telltale Head briefly, is haunted by the voice of Jebidiah Springfield.
