Best The Simpsons Episodes from the First 10 Seasons


The Top Ten

1 Cape Feare (Season 5)

The rake joke was stupid. This is always number 1 because of cry babies who don't want to change the channel nowadays.

A True Classic in my opinion. - RickyReeves


2 Who Shot Mr Burns? (Season 6 & 7)

Maggie Simpson shot Mr. Burns!

3 You Only Move Twice (Season 8)
4 Last Exit to Springfield (Season 4)
5 The City of New York vs Homer Simpson (Season 9)

Aside from the tower jokes, this episode is quite funny actually. - RickyReeves

It was made in the 90s so still laugh when Homer goes to the wrong toilets.

6 Treehouse of Horror IV (Season 5)
7 Three Men and a Comic Book (Season 2)

Best episode ever

8 Bart the Murderer (Season 3)

Lisa is a huge dick head towards Bart!

9 This Little Wiggy (Season 9)
10 Homer's Enemy (Season 8)

Frank "Grimey" Grimes

The Newcomers

? Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baadasssss Song (Season 5)

Very underrated classic. Nowadays an episode like this would not exist, or at least not in the way it's written. This is one of the best examples of the show of how much were competent back in the Classic years to develop secondary characters. Seymour is shown here not only as a 40-year-old guy who lives with his mother, but also as a unsatisfied, solitary man who wants to have connections with more people, that's why he wanted a friendship with Bart. No matter if the kid did a lot of pranks to him, here is implied that Seymour deep down wants Bart to get better as a student and as a person.
Episodes like this makes Seymour's eventual flanderization so frustrating... many of the qualities his character had were disappearing...

20 Viva Ned Flanders (Season 10)
21 Lisa Gets an 'A' (Season 10)

Great episode - KalloFox34

22 Mayored to the Mob (Season 10)

An episode with Mark Hammil? That's unpossible!

23 Kamp Krusty (Season 4)
24 Treehouse of Horror VIII (Season 9)
25 Treehouse of Horror V (Season 6)

I'm not a fan of the Halloween episodes either but I think this episode is funny

I usually don't like Treehouses of Horror, because, you know, they're disgusting, but this one I've really taken a liking to... Best and only Treehouse of Horror I like!

Here's Johnny! Dough! Best Simpson's of all time.

26 Homer Badman (Season 6)
