I like seeing "The Itchy and Scratchy and Poochie Show" up so high. It's in my Top 10 and I feel like it's often overlooked. Most of the ones toward the bottom of the list I'd agree with, though I like Das Bus more than that.

marge be not proud #1?!
u got some splainin' to do

Marge Be Not Proud is brilliant, easily a Top 5 episode of The Simpsons. Those Dead Homer Society people are dopes for hating on that one.

Lisa's Sax is a good episode, though. :'(

Jokes aren't bad but I really can't get past the plot, though the store owner is a clown

Bart of Darkness #23 and Homer the Heretic #33. Those are decently high so I can accept this list

When the fire starts to burn, there's a lesson to you must learn. Something, something then you'll see: you'll avoid catastrophe!


Btw, two great episodes. Homer the Heretic is probably in my top ten, maybe even my favorite of all time.

Solid list. Making a proper ranking of the classics are always going to be hard because there are so many good ones. The Simpsons was truly a great show in the first nine seasons.

Though I'd never rank it quite that high, it's heartening to see people giving Marge Be Not Proud some love.

I can think of dozens of episodes worse than Lisa's Sax, but it was not the best of the flashback episodes. To each their own I guess

No other pre-Jean episode is worse than I'm Going to Praiseland in my opinion
