Of course, it would be wrong to suggest this sort of mayhem began with rock-and-roll. After all, there were riots at the premiere of Mozart’s The Magic Flute. So, what’s the answer? Ban all music? In this reporters opinion, the answer, sadly, is ‘yes’.— Brockman
The Simpsons Complete Season 20 will be released in America January 12 on DVD and, for the first time, in HD on Blu-ray.
As a special feature, the DVD has completely new menus drawn by Matt Groening himself, and a poster containing loads of Simpsons characters - though we're not sure if this is the same one that's been in the shops for over 10 years.
As celebrations continue for The Simpsons' 20th anniversary, Fox is running a Simpsons scavenger hunt across its shows.
Marge Simpson -- the blue beehived matriarch of America's most loved dysfunctional family - is Playboy magazine's November cover, the magazine said on Friday.
Even though Season 12 was only put out recently, it appears Fox will be releasing Season 20 on DVD/Blu-Ray before the end of the year!
Season 20 saw The Simpsons switch to widescreen and High Definition. Many other shows release their DVDs soon after the episodes have aired, so this decision release makes sense. It is believed that the older DVDs (Season 13-19) will continue to be released alternately with the latest Season, every 6 months.
Here is the box art. Click the image to see the hi-res version:
Airing this Sunday 11th October, The Great Wife Hope sees the men of Sppringfield become obsessed by Mixed Martial Arts. However, when Marge and the women protest about its extreme violence, the show's promoter challenges Marge to a match.
British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen is to guest in an upcoming Simpsons episode where the family take a church-group trip to the Holy Land. Cohen is the alter ego of presenter Ali G and fashion reporter Bruno, but is probably best known for his portrayal of Kazakhstan reporter Borat (pictured).
In the episode, Cohen will play an Israeli tour guide angered by the Simpsons, in particular Homer - who gets a case of
Jerusalem Syndrome and believes that he is the messiah.
The episode is slated for a March 28 airing, to coincide with Palm Sunday, and is titled
The Greatest Story Ever D’ohed.

Fox has released some information for the upcoming episode, Bart Gets a 'Z'. It will air on October 4th.
When Mrs. Krabappel confiscates student’s cell phones, the class, organized by Bart, decides to teach her a lesson by spiking her coffee and watching her make a drunken fool of herself. Principal Skinner fires Mrs. Krabappel and replaces her with a cool new teacher, Zachary Vaughn, who impresses Bart and his friends with a hip attitude and love of texting, blogging and using Twitter and Facebook. Torn by his affection for Mr. Vaughn, yet plagued by guilt, Bart makes his way to Skinner’s office to tell him the truth and get Mrs. Krabappel’s job back.
The winners for the 2009 Creative Arts Emmys - the precursor to the main Emmy ceremony - have been announced.
The Simpsons family have received a cultural makeover by an Angolan advertising agency to promote the show there.
A promotional image has been released for the upcoming Season 21 premiere, Homer the Whopper:
The episode was written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Comic Book Guy creates a superhero called "Everyman", which is turned into a feature film. Homer is cast as the lead, with Seth Rogen playing his personal trainer. The episode airs on September 27.
Yet more wallpapers have been added to the gallery! Most of them come from yet another defunct site, Krustylu Studios and have been remastered so that we can bring you both our standard sizes (1024x768 and 1280x1024).
Huge thanks to Brad for donating them! The one you can see top left was created by me and is from The Springfield Files.
Wow, it's been way too long since I made a content update here, but this is a big one! Today we unveil our extensive guide to Simpsons censorship in the UK, listing all the words, lines and even whole scenes cut from episodes because of bad language, violence and some more reasons that don't make sense.
I 'inherited' the guide from another site that shut down, The Britsons. And after a lot of work formatting, editing and adding to the great work done before me, we have what is one of our finest sections here at Simpson Crazy.
If you're a Briton you will find it indispensible. If not, I'm sure you will have fun reading through what our TV channels believe is offensive!

Happy New Year! And what better way to kick off 2007 than a new wallpaper for your desktop! I've added 23 new wallpapers to the gallery - there are so many now I've had to split it up into four sections:
- Simpsons characters
- Other characters
- Other scenes
I also took a decision to limit the resolutions to 1024x768 and 1280x1024 because these are increasingly becoming the two most common resolutions. If you are using a low resolution you should consider switching up so that the backgrounds look better.
An upcoming site Planet Springfield has decided to close before opening, and the owner, Kane, has kindly donated some of its content to us.
We have 13 new wallpapers and 13 new images (ooh, unlucky) in the galleries. The pictures can be seen by clicking the "more" link below, and the wallpapers by clicking here.
I was thinking the other day how long it's been since I added any pictures to Simpson Crazy. So I got out my creative cap and put together a new set of classy wallpapers, each featuring a character with classic quote.
Each one is available in 1024x768 or 1280x960 res. It's just too much effort to make too many sizes.
I finally got around to updating the Season 7 DVD guide with lots more details: includes special features, menu animations and more.
View the guide
I also updated the promo pictures page with a few new episodes.

A guide for the Season Six DVD has been added at last. It lists special features, 'Easter Eggs', and all the cool menu animations! Season Seven has been partially completed, but as I do not have this DVD yet it is not finished.
The Tracey Ullman shorts page has been finished finally! We now have en episode guide for all 48 shorts, where you can also download each episode.
Finally, the contests have been reset. Thing is, I kinda messed up the last one (long story...). I've decided to scrap the character contest and concentrate of the Secret Sound contest, which I have more enthusiasm for. Head on over to the Interactive page to enter the new Secret Sound contest!
It's been a long while since we made a content update, but we've got loadsa great stuff for you today!
First up, the song lyrics page has been totally revamped. The layout has been condensed so it is easier to see the songs - just click a song name to see the lyrics for that song. This will be merged with the music page (in downloads) over the next week or so, since both pages are very similar.
Simpsons Song Lyrics
More Ullman shorts have been added to our gallery: episodes 32 to 41 are up, and the remaining few will be up soon.

Whew, that's everything! And we've got some more great stuff lined up soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
A seemingly small update, but it's taken me the last hour to mark the contests. The answers were: $pringfield (sound) and Captain McCallister (character). I have also made a page of the last six contest answers. New ones are now up, so go play!
