First broadcast in 1991 the third series of The Simpsons contains a clutch of candidates for "Best Simpsons Episode Ever". Homer is on such appallingly good form throughout this series that a reasonable case can be made for asserting that he has superseded the importance of his Greek namesake in the annals of culture and civilisation.
The opening "Stark Raving Dad", for instance, features a guest appearance by an un-credited Michael Jackson, who plays an obese white inmate whom Homer meets while confined to a mental institution. Other standout episodes include "Like Father, Like Clown", in which Krusty reveals he is estranged from his Rabbi father; this is The Simpsons at the height of its powers, mature, ironic, erudite and touching while bristling with slapstick and Bart-inspired cheek. "Flaming Moe's" features Aerosmith and sees Homer invent a cocktail which desperate, sleazy bartender Moe steals from him. "Radio Bart" is another demonstration of the series' knack for cultural references, parodying the Billy Wilder movie Ace in the Hole. Finally, there's "Brother Can You Spare Two Dimes", in which Danny DeVito reprises his role as Homer's brother, regaining the fortune Homer lost him by inventing a Baby Translator.
Immensely enjoyable at anything from a primary to a doctoral thesis level, this third year of the show demonstrates conclusively that The Simpsons is quite simply, and by a large margin, the greatest television programme ever made. --David Stubbs

On disc one you can find five short tv commercials for a chocolate bar all of which feature Bart.
Disc two has a very short clip of tv coverage of a 1991 Thanksgiving day parade, showing a Bart Simpson Balloon as part of it.
And disc four has a Simpsons jukebox, which allows you to watch selected muscial moments from various episodes. Either individually or all at once.
These epiodes are over twenty years old now. The animation is a bit crude compared to more recent efforts. They're still finding some of the supporting characters thus they sound a little different. But nobody ever argues about the quality of the writing in these early years, so this run should please anyone who watches it.
This box set could perhaps have a few more extras, but that's only a minor complaint. It's a very good collection of a very good season.
