5.0 out of 5 stars A great Simpson's tape
Treehouse Of Horror 9, The Cartridge Family and Natural Born Kissers have never been seen on BBC Two, so it's THREE new episodes (Unless you have Sky)! In the infamous Simpsons Halloween Special 9, there are three mini-episodes. We see that Maggie is half alien-half human, and her father is the weird green thing from space - Kahn! To settle the dispute, Homer and Kahn...

3.0 out of 5 stars Other reviews are misleading
Erm, contrary to folk lore, the episode concerning Homer's gun is not and never has been banned from airing on UK television - so most people will have seen it anyway. It is not something secret and new, which gives an unfair impression of its 'must-see' value. I can tell you it's still a good episode, though, as I've seen it on television twice.
But surely these...

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Simpson's tape, 25 April 2000
By A Customer
Treehouse Of Horror 9, The Cartridge Family and Natural Born Kissers have never been seen on BBC Two, so it's THREE new episodes (Unless you have Sky)! In the infamous Simpsons Halloween Special 9, there are three mini-episodes. We see that Maggie is half alien-half human, and her father is the weird green thing from space - Kahn! To settle the dispute, Homer and Kahn go head to head on Jerry Springer! In Toon Town, Bart and Lisa get sucked into the Itchy & Scrathy Halloween Special, and it leads to crazy cartoon violence and mayhem! In the final mini-episode, Snake is executed for smoking in the Kwiki Mart, and Homer gets his hair. But the hair possess Mr. Simpson, making him a crazy killer! Halloween specials are always a nice change in the Simpson's Series, and this is a very good one. In the Cartridge Family, a soccer riot turns into a gang war and escalates into anarchy! So, Homer buys a gun to protect his family, but Marge dosen't like his 'gift' one bit, leading to her leaving Homer! Can he win her back? This is another classic, hilarious Simpson's episode! Then, in Natural Born Kissers, Homer and Marge try to get that spark back by doing 'innapropriate' things in public places. Sick or justified? You be the judge! This is another good episode. And then Granpa vs. Sexual Inadecuacy is a good episode, but it has been seen several times on BBC Two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Hot for TV- sizzling, 23 Nov 2003
By 
This review is from: The Simpsons: Too Hot for TV [DVD] [1990] (DVD)
Once again the Simpsons delivers with this fantastic collection from our favourite dysfunctional family.
Most of these episodes have not been shown on UK terrestrial TV for various reasons, but they all live up to the build up.
The Treehouse of Horror is as wacky and abstract as ever, and all three strands of the story are belly-achingly funny. In the first Homer inherits a toupee from a criminal, in the seocnd Bart and Lisa become trapped inside a cartoon and in the third a group of aliens claim to be Maggie's father.
The Cartidge Family is typical Simpsons funfest following Homer's struggle to give up a gun which he obtains after a football riot. This episode heavily satires football and the growing gun culture in the US.
In the third episode, Marge and Homer find new pleasures after their sex drive rapidly detirioates.
In the fourth episode, the unlikely comic pairing of Homer and Grandad unite together to sell a tonic designed to improve the sex drive of its drinkers. It has unlikely consequences.
This is probably the best of the currently avaliable Simpsons vids. All four episodes are fantastic and are the ideal present for any Simpsons fan or a possible convert to the show.

4.0 out of 5 stars Even better than Jerry Springer!, 13 Mar 2000
By A Customer
'Too Hot for TV' is also the name of a Jerry Springer collection of the out-takes that are too controversial for even his circus-style TV talk show, and both Jerry and controversy crop up in this Simpsons collection. Jerry Springer plays himself in the sub-story 'Starship Poopers' (within the episode 'Treehouse of Horror IX'); 'Grampa vs Sexual Inadeqacy' tackles impotence; 'The Cartridge Family' is a gun-control fable where Springfield is gripped by an outbreak of gun violence, and 'Natural Born Kissers' shows Marge and Homer discovering dangerous sex as a way of spicing up their lovelife. None of the episodes actually were too hot for TV (!), but it's as good excuse as any for another fine Simpsons collection. My favourite quote is from 'Inadeqacy' when Homer, reading the Kama Sutra, says "Hey Marge! This guy looks like Apu!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Hot For TV, 18 Sep 2010
This review is from: The Simpsons: Too Hot for TV [DVD] [1990] (DVD)
I found it a really enjoyable DVD, also found it useful to replace my videos taking up space. If you're a fan of the Simpsons I strongly recommend this DVD.

But surely these dvds with only four or five episodes of 20 minutes are a bit of a rip off? For real fans only, I'd suggest.

4.0 out of 5 stars TO HOT FOR TV, 1 Jan 2004
This review is from: The Simpsons: Too Hot for TV [DVD] [1990] (DVD)
This is a great dvd,with 4 episodes but no special features they arent great anyway lol.
Here are the episodes:
"Treehouse of horror IX"(seaon 10)Original airdate:25/10/98
In this year's gruesome grouping of Halloween gore, Homer gets a killer new hairdo, Lisa and Bart discover first-hand that TV violence is bad, and Maggie gets her first tooth and a glimpse of her real father. In the first segment, Homer's brain is taken over by Snake when he gets Snake's hair in a transplant. With Snake controlling him, Homer kills Apu and Moe and then sets his sights on Bart. Luckily, Chief Wiggum saves the day by busting a cap in the evil hair piece. In the second story, Bart and Lisa get sucked through the fourth wall into the land of Itchy and Scratchy in the cartoon world. At first it's all fun and games, but when Itchy and Scratchy try to kill the two Simpson kids, their only escape is through Homer's inept flipping of channels. As they flip through the dial, Bart and Lisa wind up in the most frightening place of all: Live with Regis and Kathie Lee. In the final segment, the appearance of Maggie's first tooth leads to a confession Marge never wanted to make: Homer is not Maggie's real father. Kang, the drooling alien, actually inseminated Marge. Now Kang is back and he wants his baby. Homer and Marge refuse to give Maggie up. There's only one thing for the two parties to do: Go on The Jerry Springer Show and fight it out on national television.
Guest Stars: Ed McMahon, Regis Philbin, Kathie Lee Gifford and Jerry Springer as themselves; Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger

"The cartridge family"(season 9)Original airdate:2/11/97
The only way to take Homer's gun is to pry it from his lifeless, four-fingered hand. When a riot erupts at a Continental Soccer Association match, Homer buys a gun to protect his family. Marge is disgusted by his purchase but Homer loves his gun and starts attending NRA meetings with Moe, Dr. Hibbert and Apu. After Homer accidentally fires his gun during dinner, Marge sets an ultimatum: Either the gun leaves the house or she does. Well, Marge packs up the kids and moves to a motel, where Bart and Lisa have fun playing on the Magic Fingers bed. Homer comes to find his family at the motel and promises Marge he'll throw the gun away. Just then, Snake robs the place and Homer saves the day with his firearm. But he still throws it away. When her husband's not looking, Marge retrieves the gun from the trash and keeps it for herself. THIS EPISODE IS BANNED FROM THE UK TELEVISION,BECAUSE OF REFERANCES TO KILLING THE KING OF ENGLAND.
"Natural born kissers"(season 9)original airdate:17/5/98
In an incredibly revealing episode, Homer and Marge learn to spice up their love life by "snuggling" in very public places. After conquering a nearby barn and experimenting with at Sir Putts-a-Lot miniature golf course, they find themselves trapped in public without their clothes. Trying to get back home, the two sneak and skulk about Springfield, nearly being caught fully naked at every turn. Homer accidentally moons an entire church congregation and both he and Marge wind up in a crowded football field where they are exposed to thousands of cheering people.

"Grandpa vs. sexual inadequacy"(season 6)4/12/94
When Homer and Marge's sex life fizzles out, Grandpa whips up a batch of bottled passion for Homer. The home remedy proves an amazing success and after a marathon snuggle session with Marge, Homer convinces his father to try and sell the potion. Hitting the open road, Homer and Grandpa rake in the bucks and bond like they have never before. But when they find themselves driving by the house where Homer grew up, the old resentment and hostility bubbles up between them. After much fighting and many angry proclamations, Homer and Grandpa make up.
This dvd isnt my favourite but I reomend it to all Simpson fans.
