  • Summary: Originally created by cartoonist Matt Groening, "Our Favorite Family," has graced the small screen in one form or another for over 20 years. The Simpson family first appeared on television as the subjects of interstitial "shorts" on The Tracey Ullman Show in April of 1987. The Simpsons remained a staple on The Tracey Ullman Show for three seasons until they premiered in their own half-hour series, on December 17, 1989. With the help of Jim Brooks and Sam Simon, Matt Groening's cartoon family turned into an instant success.

    Set in Springfield, the average American town, the show focuses on the antics and everyday adventures of the Simpson family; Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie, as well as a virtual cast of thousands. Since the beginning, the series has been a pop culture icon, attracting hundreds of celebrities to guest star. The show has also made name for itself in its fearless satirical take on politics, media and American life in general.

    Currently in its 21st season, The Simpsons has piled up over 440 episodes, over 20 Emmy Awards, a handful of music albums, countless endorsements and merchandise, and even made the jump to the silver screen in the summer of 2007 with The Simpsons Movie. And according to Matt Groening, "There is no end in sight."

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is one of the best seasons. Here are the memorable classics:
    "Stark Raving Dad", with Michael Jackson, one of its most memorable guest stars.
    "Treehouse of Horror II", which featured a sweet parody of the "It's a Good Life" episode of The Twilight Zone.
    "Saturdays of Thunder", where Bart races soap box derby racer Nelson.
    "Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk", with the famous Land of Chocolate fantasy.
    "Radio Bart", where Bart falls down a well.
    "Lisa the Greek", one of my favorite episodes about football and one of my favorite "Simpsons" episodes.
    "Homer at the Bat", with a number of baseball players (and Terry Cashman).
    "Bart's Friend Falls in Love", with a pre-Lisa infatuation Milhouse kissing a girl.
    Overall, if you're looking for love and laughter, look no further than Season 3.

    The Simpsons Third season saw the show reach the peak of television comedy, a spot it would retain for a number of years. With twenty-four episodes available on this DVD set it is unbelievable that every single one is absolutely fantastic and should serve as the perfect demonstration of how to craft a half hour comedy show, animated or otherwise.

    Ya faltaba poco para la cuarta temporada... La tercera tiene algunos momentos buenos pero no es mi favorita ni de lejos. Bastante similar a la segunda. Expand
