Worst The Simpsons EpisodesInception
The Top Ten
Worst. Episode. Ever. Now I am not a fan of Lady Gaga but I'm willing to admit that her performance wasn't too bad. My main problem with this episode was the terrible plot and execution of said terrible, terrible plot. They spend way too much of the episode pretty much focused on and basically worshiping her. They of course have to go all out and include her ridiculous outfits and "props". Of course they could've gotten a worse guest star, but they also could've gotten a way better one. - FirearmsKill
I remember watching this episode. It made me take my T.V outside, pour gasoline on it, then I lit it with a match, because my T.V was tainted with the awfulness of this episode. It's that bad. Shame on you, Matt Groening, we want the Simpsons, not lady gaga - Megalink
Just terrible. Did someone get paid off? Did she have final say on what could be in it. It was unfunny. Whenever the Simpsons get a "special guest star voice" like this it frequently goes off the rails but this is the worst because the whole episode was tailored to suck up to her. I guess it's just one of hundreds of episodes so it's easy to ignore and avoid.

Oh dear GOD this episode is bad-no, one of the worst! You know the basic plot by now, Bart is constantly bullied and harassed by the whole town for losing a damn Little League game of all things, because, THAT'S SUCH A DAMN SIN. And then the abuse gets worse and worse to the point where Bart in what I assume is some sort of mental breakdown, begins spray painting "I HATE BART" all over the town to try to regain their approval and then, to their encouragement, when he's spray painting the water tower, he lets go of the rope in an attempted suicide.
Let that sink in, Bart Simpson, a TEN year old, is bullied and harassed by the whole town for costing his team the Championship, something that would already invoke an incredible amount of guilt and harassment from his teammates, and has a mental breakdown because of it, causing him to, with the town's ENCOURAGEMENT attempts suicide.
That is so incredibly disturbing, hideous, abhorrent, and depressing that I'm ...more - regularshowman
For such it's long run, this show has built a reputation around having characters, and, heck, most of the town, full of jackassery and idiocy,
But this... This isn't crossing the line. It's crossing the line, then giving it the middle finger whilst taunting it with vulgar slurs and stamping on it.
Basic plot summary:
Bart gets taunted and hated by the townspeople for... Not pulling a prank on them that seriously injures many of them, nor offending them in anyway.
Get this... They bully him for NOT CATCHING A BALL DURING A CHAMPIONSHIP GAME,
Wait, it gets even worse, after Lisa tries, but fails, to get Bart's hopes up, he jumps off the water tower.
Not as a prank, HE ACTUALLY TRIES COMMITTING SUICIDE. And then the Chief, of all others, tells him to jump.
After that, they still boo him for what happened, until Marge has to guilt them into apologising.
Writers, if your characters have to be TOLD OFF to have them finally realising their error, then those ...more
Okay, this is one of the worst episodes I've seen because it goes over the limit of 'mean-spiritually'. This episode is so damn unpleasant. I haven't seen an episode where the townsfolk hate Bart ever since the Jebidah's head ep, where the latter makes sense because that's their founder. Here, they all hate him just because he just lost a Little League game. Seriously! One.. Baseball. Game. They all hate Bart and bully and harass him throughout the entire episode. Even the bullies, who I thought were hilarious, do something that I actually thought was too low, by singing that they hate Bart.
Oh, it gets worse. Someone sprayed that they hate Bart on every house and it turns out to be who-else, BART. The boy went into a mental state where he couldn't live being hated by everybody so he expressed this by stating he hates himself...
He commits suicide. Yep, a little boy attempts suicide. Even for Simpsons standards, that's too low. What makes it even more worse was that when ...more
The only reason I'm voting here is to tell you all: I don't think that the darker moments were supposed to be found funny. You know, The Simpsons doesn't always have to be funny. Bart snapping could have been funny, but with how shocking that someone was painting I Hate Bart Simpson was played, I don't think that it was.V 33 Comments
Here's when things get bad for this episode: so the Simpsons get the movie Paint Your Wagon. I am really on homer and bart's side but when the cowboys paint the wagon the characters were singing. Then the drunk and violent guy comes he said "you missed a spot" then the cow boys say well come on in then the singing resumes and when lisa started singing it turns out everybody in Springfield started singing then it continued for the rest of the episode. It's stupid it's crappy and again shame on you matt groening
I remember when I saw this in the nineties, , I regret seeing this piece of crap its just so horrendous that it felt like that it wasn't even the simpsons at all - nickbrowning
Singing.. and old clips *clap clap* BRAVO!

See this in the T.V. guide and avoid the channel at all costs; I saw it once and I will never see it again unless I am forced to do so.
Absolute random crap that make the show look dumb
Ugh it's my least favourite episode everV 1 Comment
This one's not bad at all.
Why is this not number 1 on this list?
I love this episodes!

I liked this episode, but I live in Australia, so...
Very random, I especially hate the ending of this.

I don't call it a terrible episode. Yes originally Marge and Homer got together in the 1970s and Bart and Lisa were born in the 1980s and Maggie I think she was born in 1990. BUT I know its only a cartoons BUT the kids and the parents never age. Homer and Marge are still in their 30s, Bart is still 10, Lisa is still 8, Maggie is still 1 and sometimes they have birthday episodes like they are a year younger. I don't really care if they made an episode based on the 2000s. I know it's a cartoon but its been running for many years, no one ages.
This episode just makes me sick. I don't care about "floating timelines" or whatever excuses people have for this episode. It was just terrible. Marge and Homer are youths from the 70s/early 80s and should always be like that.
Also the Simpsons did a much better job at commenting on 90s pop culture and current events, while the 90s were actually happening. So this episode is extremely unnecessary.
I don't really care what people say about this episode, because in every episode they ignore Homer's first job (first season) at the nuclear power plant which he was fired from.
Yes Homer and Marge where teenagers in the 1970s but no one ages. Except for Mr Burns and Ned Flanders. (In an early episode Mr Burns was 81, then later he was in his 100s, In early episodes Ned Flanders was around the ages of Homer and Marge but suddenly he is now in his 60s)V 10 Comments
The bit where everyone claims to be the messiah somehow reminds me of family guy. - Harri666
It's just disgusting that this is so low on the list, monstrously badV 1 Comment
This abomination takes two views to realise its terribleness, the plot is over the place, the voice acting is weak ass water and the overall view on the depressed was a stereotype and made me rather annoyed, it's stupid and definitely worth a skip.
This episode was not really that bad. It had the montage with the "I like it" lady, and that was really awesome.
Kill Gil might be a little less unredeemable, but this episode really made me angry. The whole plot is stupid and all over the place. - truespongebobfan
This episode was unlucky. They had to cut out a previous scene which would have made the ending make sense(they are mourning the alligator in the place) that's how it got there
Homer pees the bed... perfect plot
This one was kind of funny. - RalphBob
I really hate Bart. Because this kid is just evil. He pulls pranks on many pranks on his Dad. So I think this should be the top 2.
Almost as bad as the boys of bummer this episodes is like a less depressing version of that and this time it aims at homer not bart - HazzaInHisMazda
An episode about homer and Bart strangling each over.Perfect!
They made an iconic running gag into the main plotV 2 Comments
Marge wants to take care her baby maggie
I love this episode because it's a Marge torture porn
This episode is great! - toptenzen
Crazy Marge was hilariousV 3 Comments
This was the nadir of the 'bullies always come off best' episodes. All through it I was longing for the Nazis to suddenly conquer America and get the gas chambers up and running again, but this time filling them with those who deserved it.
This is the most sexist episode I ever watched
I hate boy vs girl plots and this one used it - siguy
Not the worst, but still not too good.V 1 Comment
I hate this episode! Nothing too redeemable whatsoever. - truespongebobfan
Gil might be an annoying character but I liked this episode and it's my opinion not yours.
Not that bad
This is by far one of the worst episodes. Lisa, my favorite Simpsons, is tortured by Bart, my least favorite Simpson. Bart isn't original or anything. He just starts acting like a toddler wanting to be in charge. When I made a Top 10 Worst Simpsons episodes list last year, this was #3. It's THAT bad.
Bart Has two frames of mind; a normal, likeable 10 year old, and a bratty, idiotic nimrod. CHoose your pick in this episode!
Wow this is a mean episode!
"go to bread." 10/10 best jokeV 3 Comments
How could everyone rob the family of everything but a WASHCLOTH after they had gone through rough times?!
I hate this episode because not are a happy end, seriously all people ends hate the simpsons and in the other episode don't hate them? That is stupid
Thank goodness that this is in the top 5. I hate this episode so much - RickyReeves
You know maybe homer has the right not the safe Springfield at the Simpson movieV 4 Comments
Why do they kick ALL the Simpsons out? Lisa, Maggie and Marge don't do any harm I can only think of one instance when they have.Homer and Bart do the most damage, and its definitely NOT legal to just outcast people that's against state law. Also the ending was weird its like they never go back to Springfield, Usually a episode ends with then going back but no. Then the next episode they were back, it's like Bart-Mangled Banner they moved back from France and were going to another town then next episode they were back in Springfield what?
The show's 500th episode, and everybody is mean to the Simpsons. Come on! We waited 500 episodes for that? That everybody secretly hated the Simpsons? Worst episode yet and should be higher on the list.
Thanks Obama, Thanks Bieber, and Thanks Annoying Orange!
Stupid. Just stupid. - SamKoffskyV 7 Comments
Any episode with Marge in it is dead on arrival
Marge is not sexy people
This was funny!
Large Marge was an OK episode, if you ignore the sexist jokes, its kind of funny. Quite underrated too - RickyReeves
