Product Description

Season 7 of this beloved animated series includes the famous "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" episode and Tree House of Horror VI. Chock full of extras, this season is a tremendous asset to any DVD collection

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

There are probably reviewers who celebrate every Simpsons season as their "favorite." Season 7 is MY favorite! Really, it is. I do not claim that distinction on any other season. Season 7 is jammed with many of my favorite Simpsons eps ever (Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part 2), Radioactive Man, Home Sweet Homediddly-Dum-Doodily, Bart Sells His Soul, Mother Simpson, Lisa the Iconoclast, The Curse of the Flying Hellfish, Much Apu About Nothing, etc.). In fact, the only episode in this season I do not care for is Bad Neighbors which, I think goes waaay over-the-top like many of the Simpsons eps in later seasons. This season also has my favorite Treehouse of Horror ep. But, the main reason Season 7 is my favorite is that it includes my all-time #1 Simpsons episode: KING-SIZE HOMER! If you have not seen this episode, buy this now!!! The DVD set is available in the stores in both the box case (with a camera window instead of a television set), or the head-shaped Marge Simpson limited edition case (I'm not sure if Amazon offers both). The box case has a picture of Marge's head on the inside. I favor the box case, as it is easier to use, in my opinion. It has the plastic flip holders for the DVDs which I didn't like on the Season Six set but they seem a lot sturdier in this set (it keeps moving around on my Season 6 set). The booklet is very cute. It is in the style of a newspaper with ads like "Casting Call" for Radioactive Man and Moe's Method Acting Academy. Like all Simpsons sets, it is packed with extras (deleted scenes, commentaries, "Homer in the Third Dimension" featurette, etc.).

Disc 1:

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part Two): The classic ending to the two-parter. With all that Simpsons DNA evidence, it's obvious who did it, right?

Full episode lists are available in several reviews here already, so I'll just say that The Simpsons was at its peak of creativity around this time (Season's 6 and 8 are also terrific) and there are some very fine, hilarious, and joke-dense episodes on this set. Treehouse Of Horror VI, King Size Homer, The Simpson's 138th Show Spectacular, Team Homer, Bart Sells His Soul, and 22 Short Films About Springfield are just some of the 25 terrific episodes on this set. Extra features, including the commentary, have been funny and informative on recent sets and add new dimensions of appreciation to the humor in these shows. All Simpsons fans will want to own this set. By the way, Fox Video, some of us would like a FULL SET of the shorts from the Tracy Ullman show on one of these sets.

If you've looked through the reviews for Season Six, you'd find a lot of complaints about the box design. On the plus side, it was innovative, on the minus wasn't very practical. They've gone ahead and remedied this by releasing the set in both styles.

Wanting to be able to stack my boxes, or at the very least, line them up on a shelf, I opted for the plain box. If you got the alternate box for Season Six, Season Seven's box follows suit in design, with a hole cut out for an eye to peek through (in this case, Marge).

A lot has improved. The case's style is better, and is less prone to loose DVDs like Seasons 1-5. The booklet now sports scenes from the actual episodes, as opposed to just a character shot or two. Very easy to just glance through the booklet, and know what episodes are there.

As far as the DVDs interface is concerned, it's nice. When you select an episode, and the menu comes up, a scene plays in the background. Nice touch. Special features aren't as plentiful as previous seasons, though that's not really terrible, just not as much as before. I really enjoyed the animatics from previous seasons, and I was a bit disappointed to not find one here. Commentary is great.

Episode-wise, this has some gems. King Sized Homer, where homer purposely gains 61 pounds to get on disability for obesity, the conclusion to Who Shot Mr. Burns, which has some great commentary on what happened with the contest. My favorite episode, 22 Short Films About Springfield, is also here, and the 138th episode spectacular, which is a great clip show (not many series can even boast a good clip show) It's got quite a few classics.

You really will enjoy this if you're a Simpsons fan. If you haven't been watching the series since season 1, and this may be your first time viewing season 7 material unedited, do pick this up. It's a great showing of the Simpsons at its prime

I think each season of the Simpsons got better and then peeked with season 7. When you think of classic episodes most of them are here in this season. Some episodes include Who Shot Mr. Burns (part 2), the Radio Active Man movie,the episode where President Bush moves in across the street (Two Bad Neighbors), Bart Sells his Soul, and my personal favorite: King-Size Homer. Homer wearing a moo-moo for the entire episode was hilarious.

If you buy only one season of the Simpsons, this is the one to get.

By the seventh series the Simpsons was established as one of the greatest programes of all time - including live action! They had done the impossible; They took a show about an average joe family, painted them yellow and made it both clever and funny at the same time. By the time this aired for the first time, those of us who had sky one settled down at six o'clock on a sunday evening to watch a never before episode, hoping that this one would be as good as the one last week. Well I was never dissapointed. Here is my personal quick rating to each episode.

1. Who Shot Mr Burns? (Part 2) - Always over-rated in my eyes 3/5

2. Radioactive Man - A nice episode 4/5

3. Home Sweet Home-Dum-Diddly-Doodly - Average 3/5

4. Bart Sells His Soul - The first classic episode 5/5

5. Lisa The Vegetarian - Above Average 4/5

6. Treehouse Of Horror VI - Always superb 5/5

7. King-Size Homer - Very funny. 4/5

8. Mother Simpson - Not one of my faves 2/5

9. Sideshow Bob's Last Gleaming - Average 3/5

10. The Simpsons' 138th Show Spectacular - Different but good 4/5

11. Marge Be Not Proud - One of the most underrated ever 5/5

12. Team Homer - One of the funniest for sure 4/5

13. Two Bad Neighbours - Looks a bit dated now but ok 3/5

14. Scenes From A Class Struggle In Springfield - Above ave 4/5

15. Bart The Fink - Average 3/5

16. Lisa The Iconoclast - Above average 4/5

17. Homer The Smithers - V. Funny episode 4/5

18. The Day The Violence Died - Classic Itchy and Scratchy 4/5

19. A Fish Called Selma - Great episode 4/5

20. Bart On The Road - One of the best 5/5
