Top 10 Best The Simpsons Episodes of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Cape Feare (Season 5, 1993)

By far the most overrated Simpsons episode.
It’s a great parody and really funny, but the whole thing felt rushed, like they where trying to cram a whole movie into less than 30 minutes.

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...

Every Scene has a hillarious moment. Nothing can top this episode. Truly a Great Classic Show and a Great Classic Episode. Thank You Matt Groening

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

2 Homer's Enemy (Season 8, 1997)

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.

Undeniably a top episode. Where are Homer in Space and Secrets to a Successful Marriage. Moe's Funk Dancing for Self-Defense is possibly the best 15-20 second sequence in television history.

"So this is me with President Gerald Ford, and this is my on tour with the Smashing Pumpkins, oh, and this is me in outer space! "

3 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.

Favorite episode should be at the top of the list

first episode I ever saw... got me hooked

4 Last Exit to Springfield (Season 4, 1993)

We can’t bust heads like we used too, but we have our ways. One way is to tell them stories that don’t go anywhere. Like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe. So I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost you a nickel, and in those days nickels had pictures of bumblebees on them. Give me five bees for a quarter you’d say. Anyway, where was I... oh yeah. The important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have and white onions, because of the war. All you could get we’re those big yellow ones...

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
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

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 Marge vs. the Monorail (Season 4, 1993)

This should definitely be number 1 and I got a few reasons why 1.the opening theme 3.batmans a scientist 4. lyle lanley 5. monorail song 6. the town meeting 7. I call the big one bighty and 8. leonard nimoy! this is by far the best simpsons episode of all time!

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.

6 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.

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

Too bad Homer didn't get the Dallas Cowbys, but instead he got the Denver Broncos (1997 and 1998 Super Bowl champions).

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

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

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

Great episode reason too long for me to say why

Nelson and the tall man were funny moments.

The episode that made the meme. You should watch it it's a classic

8 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! "

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

Ridiculously funny! I've seen many many many episodes and this is the best!

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.

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.

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

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

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

This was great, more serious, and mysterious.

This episode should be on the top 10!

The Contenders
11 Homer's Phobia (Season 8, 1997)

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

Homer Simpson - "I like my beer cold, my T.V. loud and my homosexuals flaming"

Homer no like gay man

12 Kamp Krusty (Season 4, 1992)

Mr Blank:I thought you said you broke their spirits?
Jimbo:we did.
Mr Blank: well you broke nothing!

I know longer fear hell, because I've been to cam krusty

Classic I just remember watching it all the time

13 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! - enough said.

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

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

14 I Love Lisa (Season 4, 1993)

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.

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

I enjoyed watching this episode.

15 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

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.

So sad and so glad.

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

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

Maggie Simpson shot Mr. Burns.

17 Homer The Heretic (Season 4. 1992)

Arguably one of the greatest Simpsons episodes, should be in top 10 for sure

Homer: "I Wear Short Shorts! "
That Line Makes Me Laugh All The Time

Closely followed by Homie The CLown then Trilogy of Error.

18 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

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

Homer+Without His Beer=Hilarious Classic

19 Stark Raving Dad (Season 3, 1993)

Hands up for the favorite episode of The Simpsons of mine that guest stars the King of Pop and has the song he wrote.

Needs to be more higher, like in the top ten!

Hi I am Michael jackson

It was stupid to ban it.

20 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.

21 Deep Space Homer (Season 5, 1994)

How often will you get to hear Buzz Aldrin (yes that Buzz Aldrin) say "careful they're ruffled!” While Homer eats the wavy potato chips to “The Blue Danube?”

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

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

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

Love the bit when Lisa comes into the world

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

23 $pringfield (Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling) (Season 5, 1993)

"I almost know I dropped them in the toilet. Not I, the man who drafted the Paris Peace Accord."
"Let's see. 18, 27 35. Dealer busts."
"Ya gotta improvise Lisa. Cloves, Tom Collins mix, frozen pie crust".
What else is there to say?

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

24 Lisa On Ice (Season 6, 1994)

Not only a funny episode but a very heart warming ending too. The best episode of the simpsons in my opinion.

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

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

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

25 Treehouse of Horror V (Season 6, 1994)

Go crazy?
Don’t mind if I do!

The Shining is now The Shinning thanks to this episode of the simpsons.

Homer sneezed and that's why the dinosaurs went extinct.
