Season 6

Season Six (1994-1995), along with the previous two Seasons, are probably the most quotable in the show's history. Here's where it really shows: you can't go through this list and find an episode that doesn't have at least half a dozen hilarious quotes in it.

This could easily be the "parody season": from Hitchcock's Rear Window in "Bart of Darkness" to Kubrick's The Shining in "Treehouse of Horror V" to 101 Dalmations in "Two Dozen and One Greyhounds" and various other short skits, the show rewarded movie lovers more than ever. And of course, one of the defining moments in Simpsons history was the first of a two-part murder mystery, "Who Shot Mr. Burns?", a great spoof of Dallas' "Who Shot J.R.?" episode.

Groening's DVD intro

Aloha, Simpsons freaks!

Welcome to - what is this? Season 6? Well, by golly, whatever season it is, I'll confess one thing: what you're holding isn't merely the spiffiest deluxe DVD boxed set we've cranked out so far. This fine gift item is chock-full of the vintage animated frivolity that true fans have long clamoured for: like the scene where Bart pulls that prank, the incident when Maggie falls down, the time when Lisa is unappreciated and, of course, who can forget that classic bit in which Homer hurts himself? Lots of laughs, lots of tears, lots of blood.

Here's what we've jammed onto this here DVD hoo-ha this time: all 25 of the classic episodes from whatever year we did these things, a whole mess of rambling, self-congratulatory audio commentaries for every episode, including the dreaded clip show - all of which feature the writers, directors, and actors sharing hazy show-biz memories while sipping cognac, smoking cigars, and in one case, munching on Froot loops. Plus spicy storyboards, sneaky designs, murky animatics, TV commercials for assorted snack treats, and various interactive whatnots, I think.

Best of all, this time around you get what may be the most profound philosophical statement in the entire history of The Simpsons. That's when sweet, innocent, pacifier-sucking Maggie (voiced by James Earl Jones) says (after nailing Groundskeeper Willie in the back with an axe):

"This indeed is a disturbing universe."

There's only one thing left to say after that.

Praise Jebus!

Your pal,
Matt Groening.
