Compadres, it is imperative that we crush the freedom fighters before the start of the rainy season. And remember, a shiny new donkey for whoever brings me the head of Colonel Montoya.— Burns

Greetings, Friends of Milhouse!
Welcome to Season 9 of those lovable scamps, The Simpsons, on DVD! You might think that after so many years of creating new ways for Itchy to jam dynamite into Scratchy's nostrils that we'd become cynical and jaded, but you have no idea our fresh-faced penchant for thinking up malicious frivolivity. In addition to plenty of mouse-on-cat mayhem, we've embedded lots of classic treats in these 25 episodes, including the marriage of Apu and Manjula, the fall and rise of Krusty The Clown, Lisa's discovery of the Simpsons male stupidity gene and the disturbing tale of Moe falling in love. Broad-minded viewers will be delighted by the extravagant and bouncy nudity of Homer and Marge in "Natural Born Kissers," an episode as educational as it is arousing. You also get our Emmy-winning 200th episode, "Trash Of The Titans," along with the heartwarming story of Bart destroying Christmas. As usual, we chatterboxes can't get enough of our own brilliant opinions of ourselves, which is why each and every episode comes with its own special Hollywood-style audio commentary.
And I have to mention some of the great, great guest voices this time around, including Jim Varney, Stephen Jay Gould, Paul Winfield, Rod Steiger and Bob Denver, just to name the ones who are now dead.
So on behalf of the hand-cramped animators, irreplacable actors, clever-beyond-their-years writers, sleep-deprived producers, battle-fatigued publicists, overworked musicians, and long-suffering production assistants, enjoy!
