The Top Ten

Season 5
Cape Feare is the absolute best episode of all time in all of T.V.! And it is from season 5 of The Simpsons!
Best episodes from season 5.

10. Bart Gets an Elephant
9. Homer's Barbershop Quartet
8. Boy Scouts in the hood
7. Homer Goes to College
6. Bart Gets Famous
5. $pringfield
4. Homer and Apu
3. Deep Space Homer
2. Homer loves Flanders
1. Cape Feare
1-10 were by far the best seasons. During these seasons it was my favourite show of all time. Then what started was one of the biggest declines in a T.V. show's history.
Absolutely the best time for The Simpsons. After this season, the shows downfall began, very slowly, but surely. Today the show is mediocre at best

2Season 4
i love homer's song Simpson Homer Simpson he's the greatest guy in history from the town of Springfeild he's about hit a Chestnut tree ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Lisa needs braces. (Dental plan) Lisa needs braces. (Dental plan)
Last exit to Springfield and Marge vs MOnorail. enough' said

3Season 8
Springfield Files
Homer Vs. The Eighteenth
The Mysterious Voyage of Homer

Enough Said
"This is my son Bart. He owns a factory downtown."

My favorite is You Only Move Twice, but lots of good episodes in this season.


So many great episodes. Also one of the best one. Homers enemy.

4Season 6
Perhaps one of the funniest seasons, we see Homer chasing Uder (the chubby German kid) around a change room with a wet towel, Bart gets his first (of many) girlfriends and Australia gets cheesed off at "Bart vs. Australia".


This should be number 1. 4 is a close Second, then 5. Here's the full list:
Best: 6
Worst: 16
I believe the episode Oreanta is referring to is in this season, this season also contains "Homer Badman", possibly the best episode ever made.


[Newest]I really love this season. Itchy and Scratchy Land is one of my favorite episodes ever.

5Season 7
this episode should be no. 1, it has a classic treehouse of terror episode. And other episodes such as Lisa The Vegetarian, Home Sweet Homediddly doo and many more. I Think This Episode should have more votes. (:
the simpsons were well and truley at their peak here. although, season 4, 3, 2, 5 and 6 are great aswell


Does anyone remember when Homer was chasing Uder around with a wet towel and smacking him with it? HILARIOUS!


[Newest]By far the best.

6Season 10
This season is so funny! My favorite episode is Viva Ned Flanders ( Desperate to enjoy his life, Ned Flanders goes to Vegas with Homer and gets drunk and marries some bar girls. )
All the seasons were the best until 21th and so on I miss the old classic simpsons. I can watch the old episodes over and over but I don't even want to watch the new ones once :-(
I love this season! My favorite episode is called "Bart the mother". The plot is Bart killing a bird by accident so he takes the eggs and raises them.

7Season 9
Amazing, really funny episodes
Some pearls in this season

8Season 15
this is my favourite season. the simpsons go to england, homer meets the queen, bart and lisa chase homer and marge around the world, maggie is a genius (or at least we thought), homer meets his mother again, lisa becomes school president, milhouse moves and homer is the secret indenity of 'the pieman'! I love this season!
Season 15 was the best.

The first 3 seasons were crap. They were too emotional and the voices and animation was crap.

Seasons 4 to 9 were ok, kinda funny

Seasons 10 to 13 were very good with good story lines

But seasons 14 and onward were the best, especially season 15. They were funny, the animation is great, their not too emotional (cringy), the jokes are fresh, they have some well known celebrity guest appearances. Some really cool things happened during these seasons (especially season 15) and I just love the Simpsons so much, I hope it never ends (which unfortunately, it will have to someday. But still, I love it
Heh heh heh. Lisa meets JK Rowling, Homer turns into a robot and Bart goes to juvie and is pushed around by a girl named Gina, I lauged out loud. Some really good memories from this season. This one's proof that the Simpsons weren't going downhill, they were just on and off. It was more the writers on the job.


[Newest]I don't get how anyone can't like this season. It's just so funny and has some excellent story lines.

9Season 3
This is the season where the Simpsons started gaining popularity. The second installment of "Treehouse of Horror" appeared, sealing the deal that a new one would come back.


A ton of quality episodes, but the amazing backstory created by I Married Marge really set a nice backbone and Homer at the Bat puts them over season 4 in my opinion. Homer at the Bat is right there with Mr. Plow (Season 4) for best episode.
Underrated season in my opinion.

10Season 2
Season 2-8 are excellent with seasons 2-4 being the most consistently brilliant but 5-8 have some very strong standout episodes and as I already stated are excellent. Season 2 is the best though. Bart the Daredevil is the greatest episode ever. There just isn't a bad episode - so many episodes I'd forgotten - Itchy & Scratchy & Marge - Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish - basically the whole season is outstanding. It has the charm of the first season but a million times funnier and better written!
"Dancing Homer" and "One fish two fish blow fish blue fish" were the best of the season


Every episode is like a movie filled with emotion and satisfying endings

The Contenders

11Season 12
The first season that I bought! Ahh good memories

12Season 18

13Season 23
I know it's not finished but it's brilliant! Bart shows his academic side in "Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelts"; there was a great Avatar parody in the treehouse of horror; we visit the future in "Holidays of Future Passed" and Bart and Lisa learn about parenting; and how could any of you forget Homer and Bart's tween book 'The Troll Twins of Underbridge Academy"? This is clearly the best season!
The simpsons proves that it is not old. Granted after season 10 the simpsons became quite boring with already used plots but this season is pushing the boundries and reinventing the family we came to love. Favorite episode is the future episode, it was just incredible and the best episode I've seen in 18 years
What? That's one of the worst in the history of the series. Shame on you for putting this season so high on the list.

14Season 1
Ah season 1. Full of first appearances, some pretty funny jokes and really crappy animations.


15Season 14
Sit is the best, simply because it goes back to the good old days

16Season 22
Ok, I prefer the old simpsons seasons like from 4-10, but this season is great. The Fool Monty was hilarious, there was a great treehouse of horror, and an amazing Christmas special. It is a very impressive season!

17Season 17

18Season 24
Okay, this season really doesn't deserve to be on this list. People who think this season was funny obviously NEVER watched any of the older episodes.
I love this season. And I have watched the older episodes and I like them too. Why can't you just accept that some people like both different kinds of humor. Hmm.


This season has only 1 problem that the simpsons are green
I don't even care the homer and the dog episode was so sas
[Newest]Season 24 is not that bad, it's number 7 in my list

19Season 11
The Simpsons knew sadness in this season with the departure of Maude Flanders. But that didn't stop the DVD box from being adorned with Krusty the Clown. Bart sees his future in "Bart to the Future" and Homer becomes a missionary in "Missionary: Impossible". This was also the season that survived Y2K, ending in May, 2000.


20Season 20
The 20th season of the Simpsons... it started out... interesting (what with the erotic cakes and stuff) but soon got amazing. The Simpsons started broadcasting in High Definition, with a new opening scene and stuff. Some really good laughs came from Lisa being on "happy pills", Bart, Ralph, Skinner and the bullies all being shipped off to Capital City during an important test at school (deviously done by Superintendent Chalmers) and Moe dating a... short person. This is the DVD season they'll be coughing up next, skipping ahead of seasons 13-19 (for now) and will offer it on Blu-Ray Disc because of the HD format.


not many people have seen episodes from this season
Full of great episodes!
