Product Description

The entire seventh season of this smash hit is available packaged in a mold the shape of Marge Simpson's head. This is the next in a line of collectible molded character packages that began with Homer Simpson in Season 6. Season 7 includes the famous "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" episode and Tree House of Horror VI.

One of the hallmark seasons of The Simpsons, season 7 features some of the strongest episodes produced during the show’s run. Considering that this is The Simpsons we’re talking about here, that’s saying a lot, but this collection deserves the accolades.

Broadcast in 1995, season seven features several signature episodes, including Part II of "Who Shot Mr. Burns," "Bart Sells His Soul," and "Two Bad Neighbors" where former President George Herbert Walker Bush moves into the neighborhood (an episode gamely playing on the former President’s open dislike for the show). One of The Simpsons’s most definitive episodes, "Treehouse of Horror VI" famously broke the third wall by using the then-groundbreaking CGI technology to render Homer first in a 3-D world, then in real life, (despite the evolution in his form, he naturally ends up in an erotic cake shop). As the producers openly note on the commentary, it was a big deal at the time, and super expensive, which is why they could only do a few minutes of footage in CGI (some fans will particularly enjoy the revealing commentary on this one, as the producers explain the many visual puns and math jokes appearing in the background of the 3-D world). It’s a great example of how The Simpsons continued to play with its visual style and take creative risks years into its run. In fact, one of the best episodes on this collection, "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular" proves just how far the look and style of the show really came during that time. Hosted by actor Troy McClure (voiced by the late comic great Phil Hartman), it presents never-before-seen outtakes and original footage from the show’s debut days on The Tracey Ullman Show, while taking a few self-referential digs at show creators Matt Groening, James Brooks, and Sam Simon. Other gems include "Homerpalooza" where Homer thanks guests The Smashing Pumpkins for their gloomy music because it has made his kids "stop wishing for a future I can’t possibly provide," and "Bart the Fink" where Bart inadvertently gets Krusty the Klown busted for tax "avoision."

Along with the 25 episodes there are extensive commentaries, featurettes, and deleted scenes all of which add immense value to the set and will give die-hard fans another excuse to spend more hours in front of the TV. It’s another benchmark collection from a show that, up to this point, doesn’t seem to know its own limits. --Dan Vancini

The seventh season of the Simpsons saw Matt Groening's prime time, brilliantly hilarious animated series not missing a single step. As this season opens, we learn who shot Mr. Burns (and honestly, who didn't see it coming?), and everything from that point forward is nothing but memorable, whimsical, and often insane humor that only the Simpsons could bring. Also in this season, Hollywood comes to Springfield to film a Radioactive Man movie, and Millhouse ends up getting cast as sidekick Fallout Boy ("Radioactive Man"), Homer and Marge get accused of being negligent parents and Bart, Lisa, and Maggie get sent to live with the Flanders' ("Home Sweet Home-Dum-Diddly Doodly"), Bart sells his soul for five dollars ("Bart Sells His Soul"), Lisa becomes a vegetarian after attending a petting zoo ("Lisa the Vegetarian", which also features Paul and the late Linda McCartney as themselves), Homer becomes morbidly obese so he doesn't have to go to work ("King-Size Homer"), Homer is re-united with his long lost mother (voiced by Glenn Close in "Mother Simpson"), Sideshow Bob returns with a vendetta against television ("Sideshow Bob's Last Gleaming"), former President George Bush moves next door (the hilarious and unpredictable "Two Bad Neighbors"), Bart meets the real creator of Itchy & Scratchy (voiced by Kirk Douglas in "The Day the Violence Died"), Pulp Fiction gets hilariously spoofed ("22 Short Films About Springfield"), and Homer becomes a sideshow freak after going to Lolapalooza ("Homerpalooza", which also features the Smashing Pumpkins, Cypress Hill, and Peter Frampton). The "Treehouse of Horror" special this season was also a memorable smash, climaxing with Homer's unforgettable journey into the 3-D world.Read more ›

At long last another Simpsons season finally released by the good people at Fox. This time Fox is introducing both the plastic Marge head as well as the classic cardboard box so as to please both sides of the table. Good call fox.

Season seven is still when the Simpsons ruled the Sunday line-up, with each episode being just as great as the previous one. There are many classics on this set. I urge you to run out and buy it. Below is a summary of all the episodes:

Disc 1

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part 2) (4/5): Find out who shot Mr. Burns in the Season 6 finale. (Look to the South West)

Radioactive Man (4/5): Milhouse beats out Bart for the part of Fallout Boy.

Bart Sells His Soul (4/5): Bart sells his soul to Milhouse.

Home Sweet Homediddly-Dum-Doodly (5/5): Bart, Lisa and Maggie are sent to live at the Flanders after Homer and Marge are thought to be unfit. Ned and Maude try to baptize the three kids.

Lisa the Vegetarian (4/5): Lisa ditches meat, and we find out that pigs can fly.

Treehouse of Horror VI (4/5): Statues come to life, Groundskeeper Willie tunrs into a Freddie Kruger-type killer, and Homer and Bart go 3-d.

Disc 2

King-Size Homer (5/5): I've been waiting for this one. Homer has to gain 61 pounds to get on disability, and to try and not look like a freak in a moo-moo.

Mother Simpson (5/5): You finally get to meet Homer's hippie mom.

Sideshow Bob's Last Gleaming (5/5): Another great Sideshow Bob attempt to kill not only Bart, but this time Springfield.

The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular (5/5): A best of that's not really a best of.

Marge Be Not Proud (3/5): Bart steals from a store, and Marge finds out.

To start, season 7 of the Simpsons is available in two different packaging options. One is the Marge head, which is along the lines of the Homer shaped head packaging of the last set, and the other is the box form which is supposed to be along the lines of the previous five seasons. At first I had planned to buy the box form set, but after a friend purchased it before me, he clearly informed me to beware. The box form packaging of season 7 is exactly like the alternate packaging for season 6; it's simply a slip cover for what was inside the Homer head. Upon hearing this I decided to simply pick up the Marge head. While I wasn't crazy about the Homer head, I didn't mind it, and actually preferred it to the slip cover. Whether you buy the Marge head or go with the Slip cover casing, one thing is certain: What's inside the head is the good stuff.

Seasons 4-8 were arguably when the Simpsons hit their stride. While I'm still fond of season 3 as well, it's hard to argue against any of these episodes. I don't want to go into great detail about all the episodes or give a plot synopsis for each one, because if you would like that, there are spotlight reviews to help you. However season 7 contains some of my personal favorite episodes, including the conclusion to "Who Shot Mr. Burns" (which has my all time favorite simpson's quote by Officer Wiggum, where he says Homer is under arrest for the attempted murder of Mr. Burns, Homer yells "Doh!" and then Wiggum says "Yea that's what they all say, Doh."), Bart selling his soul to Milhouse for $5, Milhouse getting the part as Fall Out Boy in the Radioactive Man Movie, Sideshow Bob returning to threaten Springfield with a weapon of mass destruction, and the Treehouse Of Horror VI episode (best besides Treehouse of Horror II in season 3).

Missing Disc
Ours came with two copies of disc 4, so we didn't get a disc 3 either.
