Best The Simpsons Episodes

The Top Ten

1 Cape Feare (Season 5, 1993)

"I shall send you to heaven! Before I send you to HELL..." - Robert Underdunk Terwilliger Jr.

An episode known by almost all big simpsons fans and also contains the classic rake scene with sideshow bob.

"Mmm... icecream ville"
"No, that's screamville"
"AAHHHH! "

lol Sideshow Bob's all-time enemy: rakes.

Homer: "Ahh, Someone's Trying To Kill Me, Oh Wait, It's For Bart."

2 Homer's Enemy (Season 8, 1997)

"I'm peeing on the seat, give me a raise!" This episode is hilarious!

"We gather here today to mourn the loss of Frank Grimes; or 'Grimey', as he liked to be called".

What a great ending! I was literally laughing out loud for like 2 minutes when Homer won the contest and Frank Grimes went bananas. Honestly every episode on this list is a classic amazing episode, but I think this one reigns supreme.

This is the best Simpsons episode of all time. It left me thinking so much afterwards, about Frank Grimes. He hated Homer and he died failing to prove that he's stupid, an yet nobody cares. I don't feel remorse, but he's my favourite character and, I don't know

3 Rosebud (Season 5, 1993)

One of the best episodes for sure, homer falling down the stairs is just hilarious

My favorite Simpson moment of all time is when Homer tries to convince Maggie that she would be much happier with a box than Mr. Burns' teddy bear but he ends up wanting the box for himself.

This episode has heart and humor in equal measurements and the closing scene helped inspire Matt Groening to make Futurama.

first episode I ever saw... got me hooked

This episode's got everything. It has an intelligent humor, very ironic. It deserves to be on the top of the list.

4 Last Exit to Springfield (Season 4, 1993)

Dental plan
Lisa needs braces
Dental plan
Lisa needs braces

This is absolutely brilliant. There's a dozen or so episodes I'd tie for first, but this would have to be my #1 pick.

Drawn For First:
Homer at the Bat
Marge vs the Monorail
Last exit to springfield
Cape Feare
Rosebud
Homer Bad Man
Homer the Great
A Fish Called Selma
You Only Move Twice
The City of New York Vs Homer Simpson
I am Furious Yellow
Treehouse of Horror V

Nice list. I'm glad you added "I am Furious Yellow". That is one of the best later episodes and definitely underrated. - Knucklewood

This is one of those cases where ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY just might be dead right. I love every second of this, but nothing at all can top Mr. Burns' "Fifteen minutes from now, I will wreak a terrible vengeance on this city. No one will be spared! NO ONE! "

The Simpsons is one of the best shows ever, and this is the best episode. Dental plan! Lisa needs braces. There are so many parodies and pop culture references that it's one of the strangest, yet best, episodes.

5 You Only Move Twice (Season 8, 1996)

So funny! "You don't like my shoes? Neither do I! Get the hell out! "*throws shoes onto street*

Hank Scorpio is what made this episode so great. He is by far, in my opinion, the best one-shot character. An eccentric and even more erratic, evil genius and company owner. His objective was to destroy and conquer the world, yet that never kept him from caring about his employees. He gives great benefits, knows the best hammock shops in town, and even while under attack from the government, does not hesitate to take personal time to reassure an employee. Likely to be the most prosperous character with his subsequent takeover of the east coast.

Yeah, Hank Scorpio is kinda creepy when you think about what he said to Homer. --'

Awesome episode, funniest of whole series and should be much higher on the list.

6 Homer Badman (Season 6, 1994)

This episode and The Itchy and Scratchy and Poochie show were way too ahead of their times. But they were both fantastic. Also that Little Mermaid parody was hilarious

"I didn't grab her butt! I was only trying to get the candy stuck to her pants! "

Where the hell is Trash of The Titans? Funniest simpsons episode ever. Period.

Good news, everyone. I got in a fight with the garbage-men and their cutting of our service.

the first time a watched this I was on the floor almost the entire episode laughing

7 22 Short Films About Springfield (Season 7, 1996)

Deserves to be in the Top ten

Everything was funny not only the last part but this episode really made it great.

Steamed hams. Period.

I like the fact they talked about the other Simpson characters

8 Marge vs. the Monorail (Season 4, 1993)

My third favorite, besides Roasting on an open fire (2nd) and Stark Raving Dad (1st)

Splitting hairs with this list (more like splitting sides), but this one is probably the best. It has all the best characters in it, and the Quimby-Wiggum scene is my personal favorite scene in any Simpsons episode.

This was my #1 fave when I was 7. Then at age 9, my #1 was that episode where marge met that guy who loved manatees. My fave now, at 11, is without a doubt last exit to springfield

This is one of the classics. Everyone Simpsons fan should know the Monorail song. RIP Phil Hartman.

9 Homer's Phobia (Season 8, 1997)

Mage should NEVER have told Homer about the man (whatever his name is) being gay.

Homer's Phobia - Homophobia.

Homer no like gay man

Sorta

10 Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Season 6, 1995)

Hilarious and very intriguing. You could also guess it from just the first episode

It wasn't Maggie who shot him, it was SMITHERS. That was West and South. WAYLON SMITHERS!

This episode should be on the top 10!

Didn't this keep the show running? Just this ONE episode.

The Newcomers

? Homer the Smithers (Season 7, 1996)

The Contenders

11 Mr. Plow (Season 4, 1992)

The Plow King commercial was so amazing! Favorite episode ever!

If you're going to get mad at me every time I do something stupid, I guess I'll just have to stop doing stupid things!

It's Mr. Plow, that's my name! That name again, it's Mr. Plow!

It's Mr. Plow, that's my name! That name again, it's Mr. Plow! - enough said.

12 And Maggie Makes Three (Season 6, 1995)

The “do it for her” is so touching. Even though Homer is always forgetting that Maggie exists, this is such a cute reminder that he really loves her.

Great episode where they show how maggie came in and the struggles they went through and all homer had to give up to give his family a good upbringing. And this episode came out 2 days before I was born- just saying

So sad and so glad.

Maggy's first and last word is "Daddy".

13 The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show (Season 8, 1997)

"Girl, you just saved the Itchy & Scratchy ShoW! "
"Sign here you don't saved The Itchy & Scratchy Show... "
Awesome Episode, deserves be in the top ten.

Coming up next: poochie dies on his own planet. The kids want to murder poochie

This is an example of Chloe in Fairly OddParents

This one was hilarious and a classic.

14 I Love Lisa (Season 4, 1993)

Come on, this is a classic! It's a touchy Lisa episode but has some classic quotes from Ralph Wiggum! Should be much higher

This was my fave episode as a kid. I love Ralph anyway, but I found this hilarious and I felt So sorry for Ralph at the end

Ralph was very nice to Lisa and vice versa, but they weren't destined to be together and Lisa eventually snapped. Lisa was destined for someone else, like Nelson Muntz.

I enjoyed watching this episode.

15 Bart vs. Australia (Season 6, 1995)

the way bart reveals to his parents that Australia "wants" him is just too funny to be true!

I'm australian. When I saw this, I was 10% offended and 90% laughing

Great episode, despite being controversial.

I remember this airing here in Australia. So funny, was in tears the whole time. "Bullfrog? I'd of called it a shnozwanger"

16 Lisa's First Word (Season 4, 1992)

Barts first word:
Ay caramba!
Lisa first word: Bart
Maggies first word: daddy

Such a touching ending with Maggie’s first word. Also, such a hilarious classic!

I watch it all the time. I do the same with Homer's Night Out, Krusty Gets Busted,

In this episode, it had been discovered that Homer had been strangling Bart since he was a baby.

17 Bart Gets an F (Season 2, 1990)

This is the most relatable and emotional Simpsons episode. The fact that this is at 23 and not at the Top 5 is excruciating.

18 $pringfield (Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling) (Season 5, 1993)

"Come on, smithers, We'll fly in the spruce Moose! " "but sir, its only a model! " (cocks gun)"I said get in." so funny.

Your manager tells you to S H U T U P!

19 Duffless (Season 4, 1993)

This was a classic episode that I loved when I was young. Absolutely hilarious to watch Homer struggle without his beer.

I loved this in the first grade. I would love to watch it again

Homer+Without His Beer=Hilarious Classic

My name is Hans. Drinking has ruined my life. I’m 31 years old!

20 Lisa On Ice (Season 6, 1994)

Ok. Itchy and Scratchy and Poochie SUCKED. Lisa on ice was much better! Though I also thot Bart sells his soul was good too

This episode marks that despite their rivalry, Bart and Lisa are much more alike than what it seems.

Oh my god, I couldn't stop laughing, the part where Hopmer is in the locker room and chasing this fat kid and slapping him with the towel was the most funniest thing I ever saw

This is the most funniest episode you can ever watch. The locker room scene is legendary

21 Last Temptation of Homer (Season 5, 1993)

Should be at like 11

Underrated. one of the best

22 Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire (Season 1, 1989)

Come on this one started them all! I know the simpsons used to be shorts but this was the first ever REAL episode!

The legend started here.

"Some Enchanted Evening" was actually the first episode produced.

This.

Simpsons Roasting On an Open Fire was like 7th or 8th produced, but Some Enchanted Evening had horrible animation, so they redid at least 70% of it. - KalloFox34

The episode that started it all (technically)

23 Krusty Gets Kancelled (Season 4, 1993)

This showed my favourite Simpsons scene ever (She ain't what she used to be) - Unnamed Google User Remade

"Worker and parasite! " hands down greatest simpsons moment ever.

So many memorable moments, possibly the funniest episode

RIP Luke Perry. Best Sideshow ever.

24 Who Shot Mr Burns (Season 6 & 7, 1995)

Maggie Simpson shot Mr. Burns.

25 Homer's Barbershop Quartet (Season 5, 1994)

I'm a Beatles fan, and this episode is very funny, so there's my vote. "I'm gonna nail that cop right between the eyes. Right after this song." "Can't blame a guy for trying. Heh heh. Aw, you're all under arrest." "This birds gonna fly! " "Honey, use the remote! "

As a huge Beatles fan, I enjoyed this episode thoroughly
