Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Viewers who acknowledge The Simpsons as one of the best shows ever to hit television are doubtless already proud owners of The Simpsons: A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family. But since the show is still in production, that guide is no longer complete. And can you really live a second longer without a full list of last season's blackboard inscriptions? Simpsons creator Matt Groening and editor Scott M. Gimple come to the rescue with The Simpsons Forever! A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family--Continued. It's an exhaustive list of all the episodes of the ninth and tenth seasons, including screen shots, dialogue highlights (Moe, packing for Hawaii: "Ukulele, pineapples, beach pistol, scandalously revealing thong"), and "Stuff You May Have Missed," such as the fact that the motto of In 'n' Out Ear Piercing is "If It Dangles, We'll Punch a Hole in It." There are also brief bios of guest characters (Señor Ding Dong hates Chevy vans), song lyrics (Marge and Homer's version of "Those Were the Days"), and a fond-without-being-icky tribute to Troy McClure. The truly obsessed will welcome the lists: every couch gag of the past two seasons, which actors do which voices, and every single time Homer has said "D'Oh!" for the past two years. The Simpsons Forever does a terrific job of catching the humor and spirit of a truly great show. --Ali Davis

More About the Author

Matt Groening, creator and executive producer of Fox's Emmy Award®-winning series The Simpsons, made television history by bringing animation back to primetime and creating an immortal nuclear family. The Simpsons is the longest running primetime animated series in television history and is currently the longest-running comedy on television, having aired more than 400 episodes. In July 2007, the highly anticipated feature film The Simpsons Movie opened in theaters with worldwide grosses of more than $525 million to date.

Originally brought to life in 1987 for The Tracey Ullman Show, The Simpsons was Groening's amazing entry into the television animation world. Previously, he was best-known for his "Life in Hell" cartoon strip, an irreverent portrayal of love, work, school, life and relationships that currently appears in more than 250 newspapers worldwide and in a multitude of books.

Groening's other Emmy-Award®-winning creation, Futurama, launched on Fox in March 1999 and ran for five seasons. Last year Fox released the direct-to-DVD full-length original feature Futurama: Bender's Big Score. Three additional films will be released and the entire series with new episodes will air on Comedy Central this year.

In 1993, Groening formed Bongo Comics Group, where he serves as publisher of The Simpsons Library of Wisdom, Simpsons Episode Guides, Simpsons Comics, Bart Simpson Comics, Radioactive Man Comics, Simpsons Comics Treasure Trove, the annual Bart Simpson's Treehouse of Horror, Futurama Comics, more than 36 comic compilations, as well as instant classics including Bart Simpsons Guide to Life, The Simpsons Handbook, and The Simpsons Uncensored Family Album among others!

In addition to the many awards bestowed on his creations (including Emmys, Annies, and the prestigious Peabody Award), Groening was personally honored with the Rueben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year, the highest honor presented by the National Cartoonist Society. To date there are more than 14 million copies of books from HarperCollins in print throughout North America, the UK, and Australia based on The Simpsons, Futurama, and Life in Hell.

I think it's good they didn't reissue the first book onto this one, and I think it's put in a very good area.

Format: Paperback
If The Simpsons Forever! isn't crammed as full of information as its predecessor, A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family, it remains a must-have book for any fan of The Simpsons. The Simpsons Forever! picks up where that book left off, covering the ninth and tenth seasons of the show, as well as filling in a few holes that surprisingly did exist in the first book. It really is helpful only if you own the first book as well--though the style is essentially identical, and the book is of incredibly high quality, this book isn't the exhaustive compilation of Simpsons information that the first one was. If you already own the first book, you need to own this one as well. If you don't, you should still buy this one, but buy the other first.

The Simpsons is an incredible merchandise machine. Though some people say the animated sitcom hit it's peak popularity in the early 1990's I still find the show to be utterly hilarious. It is almost surprising not to see a Simpsons "spin-off" like you do with so many other popular sitcoms. Although it is a given that those aren't animated but on the other hand those aren't usually as popular as long as The Simpsons have been.
This book, is a small but excellent continuation of the previous book, "The Simpsons: A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family." The original book contained an amazing amount of details, facts, and humorous quips that define The Simpsons. The quotes and lines they select are classic. This sequel to that book delivers the same kind of material with more characters, couch gags, and guest stars. There is even a wonderful tribute to Troy McClure, voiced by the late great Phil Hartman.
If you or anyone you know enjoys The Simpsons then this book and it's predecessor are "MUST-HAVES." You learn many hilarious things that you may have missed while watching the episodes on TV. This is money well-spent!

This book is an excellent continuation of The Simpsons: A Complete Guide To Our Favorite Family. The Simpsons Forever! begins exactly where its predecessor left off by covering the ninth and tenth seasons of this famous show. Each episode has a synopsis, a list of things you might have missed, and a list of some of the highlights from the episode. Included in this book is a list of the different beginning sequences of the show, a list of the times Homer says D'oh, and of course there are bios on many of the side characters that pop up on the show. There are many other things included that are too numerous to mention. Any Simpsons fanatic needs to buy this book and its predecessor for their unlimited wealth of information about the show.

Format: Paperback
Well, we can give the creators of the Simpsons credit in two BIG places. One, they have constructed a continuation of their SIMPSONS A COMPLETE GUIDE TO OUR FAVORITE FAMILY in almost perfect form. It's an exact copy of the way the original book was presented. Episodes are summerized with popular sayings and sights recorded, we are treated to clear pictures of the episodes, more bios on characters in the show, bright colors, episode numbers, in other words, the works is presented in Simpsorific form. FOREVER even adds on a few additions such as a list of songs sung in the show, a very acurate discription of Barts music videos from the early 90's and a list of the works of the character Troy McClure, a list which sadly will not need to be updated. We fans miss you Phil.
Secondly and MOST importantly, the writers (as stated by Groening in the forward) they made it a seperate book. NO ONE who bought the first book (like me) will end up getting scrooged into buying something they already own just to get the extra stuff. It's happened to many of us too many times, and lets hope this trend of good faith in marketing continues on. I compliment the writers in this area. If there is ANY problem with this book, it's that it is no where near the meatiness of the first book. COMPLETE gave us 8 seasons of the show, FOREVER is a minor 2. Regardless, if you loved the first book, the second one continues where the first one left off, just smaller. I would have given it 5 stars if they put off printing for at least another season. Oh well, good book anyway or as Mr. Burns would say "Excellent."

Format: Paperback
Just as nicely laid out and detailed as The Complete guide. This continues from season's 9-10. The only draw back is the price. Compared to the first books value for money - this is slightly less as it is about 2/5 the length. It is still a great read.

If you like the Simpsons (at all) you will love this book, it's just as good as watching the shows and it provides a ton of extra tidbits about the show and keeps you entertained for hours.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The first book covers seasons 1-8. This book only covers two seasons: 9 and 10. Each episode gets a two page spread, while many of the episodes in the first book only had one page. This allows far greater detail to be covered.
I keep all (currently) three books near the TV, and I'll review the pages for each episode before I watch the rerun. In doing so, it opens my eyes to a lot of the little details that I missed the first fifty times I saw the episode.
Essentially, this is the owners manual for seasons 9 and 10.
