Product Description


Broadcast in 1991, the third season of The Simpsons contains a host of candidates for "Best Simpsons Episode Ever." Homer is in such good form throughout that a reasonable case can be made that he has superseded the importance of his Greek namesake in the annals of culture and civilization. The opener, "Stark Raving Dad," for instance, features a guest appearance by an uncredited Michael Jackson, who plays an obese white inmate whom Homer meets while confined to a mental institution. Other standout episodes include "Like Father, Like Clown," in which Krusty reveals he is estranged from his Rabbi father; this is The Simpsons at the height of its powers, mature, ironic, erudite, and touching while bristling with slapstick and Bart-inspired cheek. "Flaming Moe's" features Aerosmith and sees Homer invent a cocktail that desperate, sleazy bartender Moe steals from him. "Radio Bart" is another demonstration of the series' knack for cultural references, parodying the Billy Wilder movie Ace in the Hole. Finally, there's "Brother Can You Spare Two Dimes," in which Danny DeVito reprises his role as Homer's brother, regaining the fortune Homer lost him by inventing a Baby Translator. Immensely enjoyable at any level, this third year demonstrates conclusively that The Simpsons is quite simply, and by a large margin, the greatest television show ever. --David Stubbs

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The third season of 'The Simpsons', packed with memoriable episodes (eg. 'Stark Raving Dad', 'Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington', 'Homer at the Bat', and 'The Otto Show'). The humour in this is so witty, and this is the season where they finally get the voices, sounds, colour, charecters, jokes etc. right and is a season you have to buy.

When Flanders Failed - 03 Oct 1991
Ned Flanders quits his regular job and announces at a barbecue that he is opening a mall store catering to lefties. Homer, however, wishes that Flanders would fail.
Stark Raving Dad - 19 Sep 1991
Thanks to Bart leaving his lucky red hat in the load of washed white shirts, Homer wears a pink shirt to the nuclear power plant. He is promptly committed to a mental institution, where he meets up with a white man (Leon Kompowski) who walks and talks like Michael Jackson.
NOTES: Michael Jackson voices Leon Kompowski when he sounds like Michael Jackson (uncredited).
NOTE: The following episodes are broadcast in Dolby Surround Stereo.

Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington - 26 Sep 1991
Thanks to Lisa's patriotic and winning essay in a Reading Digest contest, the Simpsons win a trip to Washington DC. However, Lisa's faith in democracy is shaken when she sees her local representative taking a bribe for a permit to cut down Springfield National Forest.

The Simpsons Halloween Special II (aka Treehouse of Horror II) - 31 Oct 1991
In the sequel to the original Treehouse of Horror, three more tales of horror. Lisa, Bart, and Homer eat too much candy, and end up having nightmares...: In "The Monkey's Paw," the Simpsons, on a foreign trip, pick up a monkey's paw that gives the holder four wishes each with bad side effects.

Format: DVD
All cylinders clicked in the third season of The Simpsons which laid the foundation for the show to become the longest running animated comedy in television history. Aside from the fact that the animation became sharper and the voice dubbing became crisper, the script writing came into its own. The characters are better defined, in particular Homer's in-your-face brashness, Lisa's fervor for truth and justice, and Bart's prankster ingenuity are enhanced and the creative storylines of each episode help to serve this purpose. The plot ideas are fresh and not dictated by popular culture as the more recent seasons are. Virtually all twenty-four episodes are works of art but here are some episodes that really stood out amongst the pack and became classics:
Homer Defined: Homer avoids catastrophe when he "eeny-meenie-miny-moed" his way, or as it is coined later on, "pulled or a Homer" to avert a meltdown, therefore saving Springfield from disaster.
Treehouse of Horror II: Lisa, Bart, and Homer eat too much candy and have nightmares. Lisa dreams about a Monkey's Paw which gives its owner four wishes, but with an externality of some shape or form attached to each wish. Bart's nightmare is a "Twilight Zone"-inspired short where Bart possesses the power to change people as he sees fit, forcing everyone around him to be happy or else face the consequences. Last but not least, Homer is fired and he becomes a gravedigger. Mr. Burns finds Homer asleep one night in an open grave and captures him in order to build a perfect robot worker, utilizing Homer's brain.

252 of 281 people found the following review helpful By John Nelson on May 28, 2002
Format: DVD
The Simpsons had hit their stride in this, the third season. The sappy endings that filled most of the first two seasons were gone, the animation and colors were no longer stiff or quite as washed out and grainy looking, and the voices for the first time sounded clear and perfect. The stories and episodes were also some of the best, and here it was still a surpirse to see guest stars and guest voices on the show (In the episode HOMER DEFINED, Homer sounds ecstatic when he hears that Magic Johnson has called him up at the Power Plant).
This season on top of all of the visual imporvements also showed us some of the most entertaining and memorable episodes. LISA'S PONY has Homer turning into a zombie doing the graveyard shift at the Kwik E Mart to pay for Lisa's new Pony, a pony he bought for her after ruining her talent show audition. SEPERATE VOCATIONS has Bart and Lisa switching personalities after taking the Career Aptitute Normalizing Test (or CAN'T) a test to tell you what field you would be best in. Bart cleans up his act, and is offered a hall monitor job at school after hearing he should be a cop, a disgusted Lisa turns tough after reciving Home Maker instead of blues artist. FLAMING MOE'S has Homer's own alcohalic drink saving Moe's Tavern, with Moe taking all of the credit and Homer getting nothing. BART THE LOVER has Bart toying with his lonely teachers feelings by sending her love letters to her, while she thinks it's a man who answered her personal's ad. THE OTTO SHOW is one of everybody's favorites with Bart's pal Otto losing his bus drivers job and having to live with the Simpsons. Finally, I MARRIED MARGE has Homer retelling the kids how he proposed to Marge and his struggles to find a job with Bart on the way.
