The Top Ten

1 Cape Feare (Season 5, 1993)

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. - Oreanta

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

Sideshow bob is laughing obnoxiously at a movie and homer tells him to stop. The next second, homer is laughing obnoxiously. Just one of the most hilarious parts of thos episode...

2 Rosebud (Season 5, 1993)

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.

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

first episode I ever saw... got me hooked

Solid Citizen Kane spoof. - BeatlesFan1964

3 Homer's Enemy (Season 8, 1997)

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

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

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.

Because I'm Homer Simpson!

4 Last Exit to Springfield (Season 4, 1993)

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.

Extremely funny all the way through!

5 You Only Move Twice (Season 8, 1996)

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. - FirearmsKill

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. - themysteriouseggman

Hank is so funny

Deserves to be in the Top ten

I'm going to party like it's on sale for $19.99

Pretty funny episode with everything happening in Springefield, and Nelson got what he deserved: Very Tall Man: (lifts Nelson out of the sewer by his head after Nelson makes fun of him) Do you find something comical about my appearance when I'm driving my automobile?
Nelson: Yeah.
Very Tall Man: Everyone needs to drive a vehicle, even the very tall. (turns Nelson to face the car) This was the largest auto that I could afford. Should I therefore be made the subject of fun?
Nelson: I guess so.
Very Tall Man: Ugh! Would you like it if I laughed at YOUR misfortune? Huh?! Maybe we should find out! (sets Nelson down and lowers Nelson's shorts) Now, MARCH! [The tall guy forces Nelson to march down Main Street with his pants down; he drives slowly behind him]
Very Tall Man: Hey, everybody! Look at this, it's that boy who laughs at everyone. Let's laugh at him!
Crowd: HA-ha!
Very Tall Man: (everyone laughing in the background) Wave to the people! (Nelson waves) Blow them ...more - ShaunFan04

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

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.

One of the highest-rated T.V. show episodes of IMDB, and that song is so catchy!

8 Homer Badman (Season 6, 1994)

"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.

How is this one of the best? - RalphBob

9 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.

This one was hilarious and a classic.

"I have to go now, Bye." and then he dies

Never really liked this episode.

10 Mr. Plow (Season 4, 1992)

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.

Are you tired of having your hands cut off by snowblowers? lol, hilarious

12 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

13 And Maggie Makes Three (Season 6, 1995)

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

Do It For Her - Gangem

14 $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.

15 Homer at the Bat (Season 3, 1992)

Marge: "Children, tell me when your father stops scratching himself"
[long pause]
Marge : "Kids...? "
Bart: "We'll tell you, Mom"

...classic! Such a fantastic story that is somehow both ridiculous, serious and heart-warming at the same time- all in the space of 20 minutes! This is from a time when The Simpsons could do no wrong.

16 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

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

I thought it was a good episode but it's really offense tom my race(I'm Australian) they make us look like idiots

18 Lisa On Ice (Season 6, 1994)

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

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

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