Season 9 is an important one in The Simpsons' run because, to many fans, it represents the top of the rainbow. At this point, the show is still at the top of its game, flinging clever jokes and social satire with such ease, especially compared to later seasons, that it's hard not to see this as the peak of its run, leaving open the question of whether or not subsequent seasons measure up. Be that as it may, there's hardly any question that the writing this season is among the series' best. This is the season that brought us "The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson," where Homer illegally parks his car in front of the World Trade Center, and heralds the introduction of Duff Man ("Oh Yeah!), "The Treehouse of Horror VIII," where Bart's body gets switched with that of a fly and Marge turns into a witch, and "The Trouble with Trillions," which finds Mr. Burns hiding a trillion dollar bill from the federal government. Apu gets plenty of face time in an excellent episode where he meets his bride ("The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons"), and the town's kids get their chance at some screen time when they all get stranded on an island together a la Lord of the Flies in "Das Bus" ("We'll be like Swiss Family Robinson, only with more cursing," proclaims Bart). Definitely the show is still going strong by this point, and the 25 episodes of this season should still delight fans who've stayed with it through the years, in addition to the hours of commentaries and special features that come standard with every season of The Simpsons. --Daniel Vancini

5.0 out of 5 stars THE last great Simpsons season October 27, 2006
Format:DVD
Mike Scully's reign of terror has begun!

There is a theory that the best seasons of the Simpsons are its single-digit seasons. While I feel that Seasons 10 and 11 are certainly respectable, it is true IMO that Season 9 is the last season in which one could consider the Simpsons truly great.

As great a writer as John Schwartzwelder had become over the seasons, Season 9 is where Ian Maxtone-Graham really shined through with not only three great episodes but also having two of the three that should be in the discussion of the greatest Simpsons episodes of all time. Here are the episodes for your enjoyment.

1. The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson - classic Simpsons episode written by Ian Maxtone-Graham where Homer goes to NY to recover his illegally parked car from the WTC. Definitely one of the great Simpsons episodes of all time. Also the introduction of Duffman OH YEAH!

2. The Principal and the Pauper - the somewhat controversial episode where Principal Skinner ISN'T Principal Skinner but am impostor. Later parodied in Season 11.

3. Lisa's Sax - a flashback episode centered around (you guessed it)

4. Treehouse of Horror VIII - Homega Man - Homer discovers after a nuclear explosion that he is the last man in Sspringfield, Fly vs. Fly - Bart uses a Frink device to morph into a man-fly, Easy Bake Coven - it's easy to see Patty and Selma as witches, but Marge too (check out the end where Homer goes as Princess Kashmir on Halloween).

5. The Cartridge Family - great John Schwartzwelder episode about the folly of allowing Homer Simpson his 2nd Amendment rights. Also, the folly of believing that soccer is an enjoyable sport to watch.

Maybe I'm a moron for owning all the collectible head packs to date but I guess I'll stop with the Bart head. Here is my review from the other thread.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best seasons December 28, 2006
By Ian
Format:DVD
Season Nine of the Simpsons is possibly the best season after Season 4. The entire "Cartridge Family" episode is hilarious, and well worth the price of the entire set alone. ("Five day waiting period??! But I'm mad NOW!")

But nearly every episode on here is just as good, even though there are one or two that aren't up to the high standard of the rest of the season. While it's true that the show is no longer as funny as it used to be, the decline didn't start with Season 9. I'd describe this season as the time when the show peaked for the second time.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the last great seasons of the long running show December 6, 2006
Format:DVD
As the Simpsons reached it's landmark ninth season, by the time the last few episodes came around, it was clear that perhaps there was a decline happening in the series' quality. The season starts out great however with the classic "City of New York VS Homer Simpson", as Homer and the family go to New York to recover Homer's illegally parked car. That episode is followed by the somewhat controversial "Principal and the Pauper" in which it is revealed that Principal Skinner isn't Principal Skinner, but an imposter, when the real Skinner (voiced by Martin Sheen) returns to Springfield. The "Treehouse of Horror" episode this season is a bit disappointing (it just doesn't have those laugh out loud moments that previous ones had), and also throughout this season, Bart tries out for the Homer coached Pee-Wee football team, Apu (Hank Azaria) worries over his arranged marriage, Bart accidently burns up the presents and blames it on made up burglars, and Mr. Burns takes a trip to Cuba with a trillion dollar bill. The standout episodes of this season are undoubtadly "Bart Carny" where Homer and Bart get scammed by carnies (one of whom is voiced by the late Jim Varney), and "The Little Wiggy" in which Ralph gets set up on a "play date" with Bart. The landmark 200th episode, "Trash of the Titans", features Steve Martin and U2, but this where you can notice a decline in the show's quality. The season closer, "Natural Born Kissers", isn't all that great either sadly, but the good does outweigh the bad here with this season set. All in all, for the most part the ninth season of the Simpsons is the same kind of tongue in cheek humor that you would come to expect, and it's worth picking up for longtime fans of the long running show.

The City of NY vs. Homer Simpson
Pretty sure they won't edit those scenes, since i've been getting the unedited versions on my local syndication every time they show that episode. Where do you guys live thats cutting the WTC part? Its a pretty substantial segment of that episode, so i'm curious what they show instead.

Maintaining a level of humor that is most notably demonstrated from Seasons 4-8 or even 9 would be difficult for any writing team, especially to continue on for as many seasons as the Simpsons has persisted.
