Product Description

Product Description

Bumper collection of five episodes celebrating Springfield's finest. In the first ever 25-minute episode - 'Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire' - Homer takes a job as a store Santa when his expected Christmas bonus fails to materialise. In 'Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baadasssss Song' (the 100th episode), Principal Skinner finds himself replaced by Ned Flanders after Bart's dog runs amok at the school. 200th episode 'Trash of the Titans' sees Homer attempting to turn Springfield into the ultimate trash-hole after deciding that garbage is good! In 'Bart Gets an F' (the highest rated episode in the show's history), Bart makes an attempt to knuckle down and pass his history exam when Mrs Krabapple threatens to keep him back for a year. 'Lisa's First Word' sees Marge and Homer in the mood for reminiscing as Lisa's arrival in the Simpson household is unveiled in flashback.

This DVD edition of 'The Simpsons- Greatest Hits', as part of 'The Simpsons Classics'range, contains four episodes that had some effect on The Simpsons history. Firstly, 'SIMPSONS ROASTING ON AN OPEN FIRE' was the first ever full length episode of the show. Secondly, 'SWEET SEYMOUR SKINNER'S BAADASSSSS SONG' was the landmark 100th episode. 'BART GETS AN F' had the highest U.S rating of an episode, and in 'LISA'S FIRST WORD', Maggie speaks for the first time! These are all truly 'great hits', and feature the guest voices of Marcia Wallace and Elizabeth Taylor(Maggie). There is only one problem with this DVD which I am suprised about..., the fact that 20th Century Fox left out the brilliant milestone 200th episode, 'TRASH OF THE TITANS', which appears on the great VHS edition of 'The Simpsons- Greatest Hits'. This episode sees Homer decide he's fed up with a world run by snooty garbagemen, and so becomes 'The Garbageman', taking care of Springfield's trash problems personally along with his fellow expensive suit wearing garbagemen. The episode contains the musical number, ' The Garbageman', a spoof of 'The Candyman', and also features the guest voices of Steve Martin and U2(U2 contribute to 'The Garbageman'). The episode also contains an alternate ending that was to rude for TV, featuring U2 and Monty Burns. This is the only case in which I believe the VHS tape is better value than the DVD, but if you are a collector of 'The Simpsons Classics',then this is great value purely because of the brilliance of the four episodes included.

4.0 out of 5 stars Four classic episodes! 24 Nov 2013
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Don't be mistaken, these are NOT the greatest episodes of The Simpsons, but they ARE landmarks. People have complained that there are only four episodes, but don't be surprised - all entries in 'The Simpsons Classics' series contain the same amount, and bear in mind that they were originally released on VHS.

This was the first Simpsons DVD I bought, just because - it was the only one in the shop that I could actually afford at the time. You can now pick up the seasons boxsets at great prices, and I strongly do recommend that you purchase them, for naturally they are far superior.

However, these aren't bad episodes at all, and it's a good DVD to pick up at such a (even cheaper now) price. With Christmas coming up, this is a great stocking filler.

Episodes are:
Roasting On an Open Fire (1989) - The very first Simpsons episode and a Christmas Special.

Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baddass Song (1994) - The 100th episode.

Bart Gets an F (1990) - The first episode of season two and ranked 31st on Entertainment Weekly's 1999 list of "The 100 Greatest Moments in Television." It is included here as it is still the highest rated episode in the history of the show.

Lisa's First Word (1992) - This episode features Maggie speaking for the first time, she is voiced by Elizabeth Taylor.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only 4 episodes? 2 Sep 2003
4 episodes? I don't think that represents very good value for money. Particularly when "Roasting On an Open Fire" and "Bart Gets an F" are already available on the Season 1 collection.
Also, I don't think these are the greatest hits anyway. What about "Flaming Moe" for a start???
Buy the Season 1 & 2 DVDs, then wait for the Season 3 DVD to come out and buy that too. Then you'll have the Simpsons "Greatest Hits".
