"22 years and 23 days old and still not canceled! The Simpsons" doesn't quite have the same ring to it and would be 24 days out of date by now.

It's technically 24 years old in May because the shorts debuted in 1987.

Oh yes, good point. I completely forgot about them. What is wrong with me frown I'm pretty sure I've seen most if not all of the shorts too.

How good were the shorts? I know they were on The Tracey Ullman Show and that they started the whole series; but were they actually funny?

The vast majority of them were utterly, utterly awful to be perfectly honest - to the point of being somewhat difficult to watch.

A handful of them were alright, though.

It's funny how something awful turned into the greatest (not the best) cartoon of all time....

Is that what FOX is trying with the Cleveland Show? 'Cause baby, that train stopped running 3 and 7/8 years ago.


Alright, I'm going to review some of the episodes I watch from my new Season 4 DVD. big grin Thank you Amazon for making me wait only 2 days! ONLY 2 DAYS! big grin



The Itchy and Scratchy Movie:


My basic opinion of this episode was that it was quite solid and funny. The plot was pretty well paced, and the Homer moments are just fantastic. Bart: "Maybe they mean it this time! Maybe I should buckle down and really focus on my future!" (Homer opens the door) Homer: "Hey boy, I couldn't stand to see you go hungry, so here's some pizza. Just promise to be good, ok?" "Ok." (Homer walks out of the room) Bart: "Hahaha, sucker!" laff

That moment alone was brilliantly funny and well done. But the best parts was probably all the scenes when Bart was messing around with the dentures. (And Abe's random mumbling because he has tape in his mouth laff) Marge and Homer visiting Bart and Lisa's teachers were also really funny. "Mr. Simpsons, you've done a great job raising your daughter! You must of read to her at a young age." "WHy yes I did! I read her the 3 R's of TV guides!" laff Meanwhile, Marge gets yelled out for Homer's bad parenting.

There were plenty of moments that I could go on about, but the ending was phenominal! "Itchy's a real jerk!" laff In my opinion, one of the best endings in Simpsons history! big grin

To me they're not as great as the early series. But they are interesting to see the crappy animation and how much they can do in 2 minutes. At least check some of them out.

And yes The Itchy and Scratchy episode is defently in my top 10. In fact in my old video tape of myself my mum is giving me my first bath while my dad watches the episode on TV  laff

I remember being (in my mind) the world's biggest Simpson's fan at age 8. One day, I watched Mr. Plow, some of you love it, while others consider it a definite classic! smile My brother saw me watching it, and remarked: "Mr. Plow! This episode is great!" I sat there and watched it while my brother laughed at the finest form of Simpson's humor. Meanwhile, I sat there wondering what was the big deal about that episode. What a fool I was! So, with my new Simpson's season, I engaged in watching it again.

Mr. Plow:

To start off, what an episode! The charm and quality of this episode was so nicely laid out, that I'm considering buying that Mr. Plow jacket! laff Alright, in the beginning I remember Homer staying at Moe's for to long. So, of course this led to the hilarious scene where he suddenly crashed into a car ("Well, at least that guy got what he deserved!"). But I found myself subject to a hysterical laughing attack when he got out of the car and saw it was none other than his second car! laff With that incredible double takeout, led to the heart of this episode. When Homer bought the car that he couldn't afford just because the salesman made a whipping noise (Whooosh laff), Homer ended up with a big plow. Following that, there were plenty of funny moments following Homer plow certain spots. (Homer plows the Retirement Home) Grandpa: "We're free! We're no longer prisoners to that terrible house!..........It's cold, lets go inside!" laff

That set up the rest of the crazy moments in this episode. The moment Homer started to roll int he dough, I was already loving the episode. I was really into the episode, especially after Homer's hilarious first commercial! Another great moment, or moments, was all the scenes with Barney naked in a diaper! (His diaper blows off, and he chases it) "Oh, hi Mom!" laff When Barney turned into the Plow King, and the competition grounded in, the episode really picked up. Seeing Barney be suddenly rich just for plowing people's yards was awesome. But when Homer tried to kill Barney, that was simply awesome to see how dumb both of them are! laff Still, the ending was also incredible: "We should team up, because when two best friends work together, nothing can stop them! Not even god himself! God: "Oh yes I can!" (Everything Melts) laff

Overall, this episode was incredibly awesome! This is by sure an all time classic! big grin

It was far better than the vast majority of what they'd done for a long while. A really good season compared to the last 10 years or so of the show's output.

But Holidays of Futures Passed is the only episode that I'd say is good. Although I'd give The Book Job and The Food Wife shout outs for being mediocre as opposed to awful. Mediocre is pretty good going for The Simpsons these days.

Last Exit To Springfield

What a fantastic episode! The story was really good, but the humor really backed it up. Nothing was off even a single bit. The voice acting was great, the music was great, and all the great moments were also really funny.

Homer becoming the president of a worker's union is great. Not great as an 'I'm going to Vegas!' great, but just 'pretty damn funny' great. The Lisa scenes were pretty good too. "Open up honey! I'm sure there's a great smile in there just waiting to walk out." (Lisa opens her mouth revealing her horrifying braces...) "There is no God..." laff Lisa's songs were also pretty catchy, and it really showed the determination of the workers. It made the episode feel like it had a serious side, opposed to it's comical side.

But the best moments, were the Homer moments. Not only were they hilarious, but I think I fell in love with the Simpsons again... Seriously, Homer's moments might of re-triggered my love for the Simpsons again. "First thing tomorrow , I'm going to punch Lenny in the back of the head!" laff Ah, Homer is such a great character. But how can he of been mistaken for a genius by Mr. Burns? laff Well, before even that happened I remember quite more Homer moments. (Mr. Burns is negotiating with Homer...) Mr. Burns started negotiating, but obviously Homer misunderstood what Mr. Burns was telling him for a series of bold and gay comments. ("Homer: "Is he coming on to me?") Well, Homer instantly responds to Mr. Burns misinterpreted words by saying: "Mr. Burns I don't have time for your backdoor shenanigans!" And somehow Mr. Burns viewed Homer as an expert negotiator! laff So then there was Homer's hilarious negotiation at Burn's Manor, where Homer really had to use the bathroom. Burns: "Well you don't have to make a whiz to know your main priority is number 1!" (Mr. Smither's pours a cup of tea) "Now if we could seal the deal, you can make a big splash of success!" laff(At the Union meeting after being disappointed with the failed negotiations...) "Well friends, I give in and quit..." Lenny: "We're going on strike!" These failed communications ended up saving Homer and his buddies Dental Plans in the end...laff So eventually after the strike, negotiations were held again, and they got the Dental Plan back.

Overall, a brilliant episode. If you were to watch it, you would see how it carved out the blueprints for humor in future episodes. I would even consider this a classic! big grin It just has a wonderous charm to it that makes me want to watch it again and again!

How can you do a review of that episode and not mention
"Dental plan!" "Lisa needs braces!"

That's probably one of the best known Simpsons quotes I'd think. Am I the only one who freaked out as a kid watching that Lisa on the computer with the tooth ripping through her skull?

The Shorts were awful.  The first season is better, but still pretty craptacular as well.  The show really hadn't found its feet at that point.

My Simpson's DVD collection just got a little bit bigger! big grin For a great price of $13.50, I got an almost new Simpson's Season 7. It's been played once by the sender (They wanted to make sure it works), and it'll make a fine addition to my newfound collection : I have seasons 4, 5, 7, and 8. Which season should I get next?

Yeah I can see why Matt didn't want the episode made. The Simpsons doesn't need to have a crossover with another animated show (Apart from Futurama)

Matt's reasoning for disliking A Star is Burns weren't because it wasn't a great episode (because it is) but because the whole concept of doing a crossover purely to promote a new show he had nothing to do with cheapened The Simpsons somewhat.

But other than that and Another Simpsons Clip Show, season 6 is the best season. It's magnificent.

What did you guys think about "The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase"? It felt a little cheap how the Simpsons appeared in the first two segments. hmpf The first two were right besides the cheap cameos, but the third segment felt really crappy to me...

It was supposed to be cheap - they were mocking the way that spin-offs often crow-bar cameos from characters in the original show into them, particularly in the early episodes.

New Kid On The Block
This was quite a funny episode!

It all started when The Simpsons neighbor reveals that she is moving. The episode quickly picks up from there when Homer starts to scare the clients away. "...and please where a towel when you walk in front of the window!" ( Old Neighbor) laff The best display of Homer's flaws was when one of the clients looked out the window to see what was making mysterious noises. Just his luck to find Homer bathing naked on his lawn in an inflatable pool reaching down and looking for the soggy hot dog he dropped so he could eat it! laff Meanwhile, Bart and Lisa sneak into the basement of the unsold house. Bart starts to tell the story of the inbred kid whose only friend was a sock. laff In this moment, a teenage girl comes out of the dark and scares Bart. After a quick session of screaming and falling over, Bart gets a look at what is not a monster, but q beautiful teenager. "Hey kid, I'm Laura your new neighbor." Bart sees her pretty face and knows that a clever line must be said. "My bottom hurts." laff  

Bart and Laura start spending quality time together as Batt obviously starts to fall for her. I really liked how Bart got more and more into her each time he saw her. I also loved Paura's jokester enthusiasm! For example, she was able to tell Bart his future: "WOAH! Your gonna be rich and live in a mansion! Here's the tennis court, the bedroom, and here's the swimming pool!" (She spits in his hand) laff Bart decided that he would never wash that hand again. ( He later chased Lisa with it, and got his hand stuck to the dog, laff)

While Bart and Laura got to know each other, Marge and Ruth Powers (Laura's Mom) also got to know each other. She explained how she was divorced as Marge stumbled upon her porno. Marge: "I guess this is for the man of the house, which I guess is you." laff Her also got slightly acquainted with Ruth in a hilarious conversation. "Well yes Homer, I do have the usual appetite." "Oh, uh. Huh, me too! We are not talking about food right?" "No." "And we're talking about sex, right? "Yes." laff

Later, Bart took a bath to wash off his arm with the news that Laura was gonna babysit him. Lisa quickly figured this out...

While Laura babysat Bart and Lisa, Homer and Marge went to a seafood resteraunt with an all you can eat special. Homer instantly took advantag of this by hilariously picking up a bin of shrimp and bringing it to his plate. laff Eventually, Homer got kicked out for continouely eating nonstop. laff This outraged Homer, as he decided to legally fight this.

Homer visitEd one of my favorite characters, Lionel Hutz. Mr. Hutz accepted Homer's case because he believed it to be a terrible case of false advertisement. He also said one of my favorite lines ever: "This is the worst case of false advertisement since the film The Never Ending Story." After that line I was hysterical. laff So when Homer's case began, you could tell he had the favor of the jury, because they looked like fat slobs who could relate to Homer. (Fat Jury Member: "That's unfair!" laff) Sea Captain: "This man was more stomach than man, he wouldn't stop eating." (A pizza guy walks into the room: "Who ordered a pizza?") Homer: "I did!" laff There also a funny moment when giant bags were brought into the courtroom one after another. This was funny because seconds before, the defending attorney said: "This is exactly how much seafood Mr. Simpson ate." laff It ended up to be receipts for another case! laff Soon Hutz had Marge reveal that her and Homer went fishing after they got kicked out...laff "Does this sound like all you can eat?" Wow. Hutz actually did good! laff

During all this, Laura revealed to Bart her new "bad-ass" boyfriend, Jimbo Jones. Bart didn't take this news well, so while Laura and Jimbo got busy downstairs (You know what I mean!  flirt), Bart called Moe with one of his classic and hilarious pranks! Moe: "Is there Amanda Hugginkiss? Ah! Why isn't there Amanda Hugginkiss?" laff After realizes his moment of shame, he gets infuriated as usual. However, Bart tells him his address and that his name is Jimbo Jones! Moe goes down, and threatens to cut up Jimbo. Upon the scene, Jimbo breaks out crying. Moe decides to leave, as the moment must've been awkward. "I was only going to cut you!" laff So Laura tells Jimbo to leave, as he continues to be a baby...

Meanwhile, the Sea Captain decides to grant Homer all he can eat as a customer attraction to watch "The Man With The Endless Stomach". laff Marge was ashamed... Laura told Bart that she would go out with him if he was older, and to Bart, that means the world! love

This episode was full of great laughs, and shan't a disappointment was in it either! This was yet another perfect episode of The Simpsons! It wasn't a classic, but it was a really good episode!
