The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!

Season 7 - Sideshow Bob and his brother Cecil - voiced by Kelsey Grammer & David Hyde Pierce. Loved when Lisa jumps on Cecil's back & says "Guess who?" His answer - Maris!

There are so, so many great episodes . . .

Horrifying confession: I have never watched an entire episode. I think that means I'm eligible to be deported.

Ray Nicolet said...

The one where Radiohead guest stars and Cartman kills this kids parents and cooks them into chili and made the kid eat it,

Boriqua said...

Two Dozen and One Greyhounds. It has one of the show's best songs ever, "See My Vest." :)

Homer smokes pot! Aka Weekend at Burnsies

MeanieRhysie said...

Is this show still on??? I may have watched 2 or 3 shows way back in the last century...

I've never sat down to watch a full episode, but I have watched the closet episode online with Travolta and Cruise. As a critic of Scientology and someone who dislikes watching people hide in the closet, I highly enjoyed this episode.

I'm not sure if it is true, but I heard lawsuits were threatened and the episode can never be aired again. Thankfully we have YouTube.

That was SOUTHPARK

Ray Nicolet said...

Just watched that episode the other day. Classic! Poor Stan just wanted Tom outta his closet.

Ray Nicolet said...

Idk bout lawsuits cause I watched it on Comedy Central the other day but i was surprised it was on.

SusanB said...

@kno won uno - don't feel bad - I've never seen a whole episode either. Just not my type of entertainment.

Chelle said...

That one was awesome!

Chelle said...

I like the one where Homer thinks he sees an alien/ghost but it's really Mr Burns really high on a bunch of stuff to keep him alive

AndrewBW said...

"Lisa's Substitute," with Dustin Hoffman as the substitute teacher Lisa falls in love with. The ending could have been hideously sentimental but right when you thought a great episode was going to go to waste they pulled a rabbit out of a hat and ended it perfectly.

"Homer the Great," where Homer becomes head of the ancient secret society of the Stonecutters. The Stonecutters song "We Do!" is the best song they ever did.

Funny cuz I was going to purposely mention a fav South Park or Family Guy episode because, in other words, can't recall any Simpsons episodes. It's been so long and I guess they weren't as memorable as South Park.

I can see how non fans could confuse them. ....."what would Brian Botano do?" & "shut ur effeminate mouth Uncle Ducker....shut ur effin mouth Uncke Ducker". And the loud motorcycle epi. Ummmm kayyy

TanishaDelill said...

The Michael Jackson one- where Homer ends up in an asylum. Love the Birthday Song for Lisa.

All Lace no Leather said...

@BratGirl- ha ha ha. Thanks for the clarification. I don't watch SouthPark either so I have no frame of reference for the difference between Simpsons and SouthPark.

Sherry said...

I've never seen it either. Just snippets here and there.

I know, that makes me one of few.

Ray Nicolet said...

I watched the Simpsons occasionally until i found out that the voice of Bart is Co$ and now I boycott it.

Plus South Park is funnier.

All Lace no Leather said...

@Ray interesting it was on. Maybe the ban was BS or COS is losing power (yeah).

AKM said...

The one I didn't watch because I don't watch it.

All Lace no Leather said...

Re- SouthPark Out of the Closet episode. Originally the story was Cruise threatened to pull from doing publicity for one of the Mission Impossible movies if the episode was aired again (both SP and MI are from Viacom). An early rebroadcast was pulled. Cruise later denied the story and the episode has since been aired.

Seven of Eleven said...

That's my favorite, too, @Jane!

Oh yeah, shake it, Madeline! Capital knockers!

Uhhhh... said...

The one with all the Homers - I think it was a Treehouse of Horror episode.

saltygirl said...

Mr. Plow.

dee said...

"Viva Ned Flanders" Homer takes Ned to Las Vegas and they land up married to two floozies. The Hangover movies are a rip-off of this episode.

Count Jerkula said...

Homer tripping. I forget if it was from a pepper, shrooms or both.

Megley said...

Every episode that featured that magnificent bastard, Phil Hartman. The Monorail episode is an excellent example of the show--everything worked.

Gayeld said...

Oh God, the first season and all the different ways they killed Kenny. NEVER. GOT. OLD.

George Clooney as the "voice" of the gay dog?

Gayeld said...

Haven't watched it in years, but pretty much anything from the first couple seasons.

Steven O said...

Marge vs. The Monorail. Classic

fancyscreenname said...

the epi when santas little helpe (the dog) needed an operation and the family had to cut back on expenses. as soon as marge suggested cutting back maggie bent her arm and her shirt tore. by the time the dog got the operation i remember bart having a really bad mom haircut and maggie exploded out of her shirt. lol

Renoblondee said...

Stopped watching years ago but 9 yr old boy made us start back last year. I forgot how much I loved it!

8====D KermitGossnellKnobjob said...

Itchyscratchyland, probably. Or the prohibition of alcohol one.

In South Park, I love the "not without my anus" one (Terrance & Philip, sp, special making the cliffhanger from the 1st season longer), and the one when Butters says "do you know what I am saying" when pimping.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Kamp Krusty. Bart and Lisa are in their freezing cold cabin in their bunks lying down when the counselors tell them they're going across the lake to "meet some tail."

I was 9 when I first saw this episode.

Meg said...

The Sideshow Bob episode that was a sendup of the movie Cape Fear was awesome! "The following people will not be murdered by me: Homer Simpson…Marge Simpson…Lisa Simpson…Maggie Simpson…that is all." Hee!

fancyscreenname said...

i still yell "excelsior" from time to time because of Ralph, the kid in the white shirt with the pocket protector. lol

Smasherstein said...

There are so many classic episodes, at its peak (arguably Season 3-7), it was one of the sharpest, funniest shows ever made.

The Shining and Citizen Kang Treehouse of Horrors are tops. I think my all-time favorite is Itchy & Scratchy Land - my BORT license plate keychain is one of my prized possessions.

skippy said...

I like most of them.
However I got confused between South Park & Simpsons with Tom & travolta. It was brilliant.
Tom managed to get it blocked for a long time. Maybe got stuck in the closet!

PotPourri said...

The Christmas Show where Homer loses the kids' Christmas Present Money at the Dog Track on "Santa's Little Helper" and Santa's Little Helper gets kicked out for being a loser. Then he shows up at the door on Christmas Eve and the kids scream that they got a dog for Christmas. It was AWESOME!

Pogue Mahone said...

Never watched a single one.

My bf has a Stonecutters tattoo.

Henriette said...

"Kamp Krusty"! I'm a huge Simpsons fan and the best years were 1993 to 1996. I still love "Lisa's Substitute" with Dustin Hoffman as Sam Etic. Michael Jackson would do the same thing later, but Hoffman nailed it.

Henriette said...

I also loved "A Fish Called Selma" with Phil Hartman. I sure miss Troy and Lionel Hutz. I also loved "Bart the Lover" and any episode where Bart falls in love, because it always ends badly for him.

Cee Kay said...

SO MANY GREAT EPS! I do especially love the one where Homer decides to make his own religion, andd the one where he eats the insanity pepper and hallucinates Johnny Cash as a fox.
