While the first three Seasons saw episodes mostly revolving around Bart, in Season Four (1992-1993) we saw a lot more of Homer, proving that the show was no longer "just a kids program".
This Season has more classics than you can count on your fingers and toes (unless you're from Spittle County and have a couple extra). There's the kids' nightmarish trip to Kamp Krusty; Marge's performance in the New Orleans-bashing "A Streetcar Named Desire" which caused uproar in said city; Homer skipping church and meeting God in a dream (notice that God has five fingers); The story of Lisa's birth, and each of the kids' first words; Homer giving up deer - uh, beer - for a month; and of course the first (and best) clip show. An excellent set of episodes.
Welcome to the daffy, laffy, fun-as-saltwater-taffy Fourth Big Boxed Set of The Simpsons on DVD, featuring every yok, chortle, titter, and knee-slapper from perhaps the greatest season in the show's history, at least until Season 5.
This box is full of many fan favourites: Bart and Lisa's ill-fated trip to Kamp Krusty; Homer's encounter with a five-fingered God (the theological implications of which are staggering); Maggie's great escape from the Ayn Rand School for Tots; Marge, Apu, Chief Wiggum, and Flanders singing their hearts out in "Oh! Streetcar!"; the disturbing debut of Itchy & Scratchy in "Steamboat Itchy"; the legendary Mr. Plow/Plow King rivalry; the animated adventures of Worker & Parasite; Ralph Wiggum's immortal "Choo-Choo-Choose Me" valentine to Lisa; and of course the classic monorail episode. That's the one that has my all-time favourite Simpsons line, when Homer points at the hissing possom family and says: "I call the big one Bitey."
So, on behalf of the brilliant animators, actors, writers, musicians, production team, and assorted abused underlings, I'd like to welcome you to another great batch of The Simpsons, or, as they say in France, Les Simpson.
