Amazon.com

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 Homer is in such good form throughout that a reasonable case can be made that he has superseded the importance of his Greek namesake in the annals of culture and civilization.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

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.

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.

The Simpsons are known as the best and longest animated series on american television ever!! The third season is probably one of the best seasons of the Simpsons, where the characters actually look like the way they do now, with the sounds (this is the season where the The Simpsons were made in Dolby Surround Sound, so it is extremely clear) and picture quality excellently sharp! This season consists of 24 episodes which are :
01 - Stark Raving Dad
02 - Mr. Lisa Goes To Washington
03 - When Flanders Failed
04 - Bart The Murderer
05 - Homer Defined
06 - Like Father Like Clown
07 - Treehouse Of Horror II
08 - Lisa's Pony
09 - Saturdays Of Thunder
10 - Flaming Moe's
11 - Burns Verkaufen Der Kraftwerk
12 - I Married Marge
13 - Radio Bart
14 - Lisa The Greek
15 - Homer Alone
16 - Bart The Lover
17 - Homer At The Bat
18 - Separate Vocations
19 - Dog Of Death
20 - Colonel Homer
21 - Black Widower
22 - The Otto Show
23 - Bart's Friend Falls In Love
24 - Brother, Can You Spare Two Dimes?
With guest voices of Michael Jackson, Joe Mantegna, Neil Patrick Harris, Magic Johnson, Chick Hearn, Jackie Mason, Catherine O'Hara, Aerosmith, Terry Cashman, Beverly D'Angelo, Spinal Tap, Kimmy Robertson, Joe Frazier, Danny and many more, this season is hilarious and extensively funny :)
Along with all this, the dvd will also feature us with loads of special features such as audio commentary for the episodes, commercials, videos, photo galleries and much more!! All in all, this is a must buy, whether you are a Simpsons fan or not!!
