Product Description

For the Simpsons fan who has everything! While The Simpsons is more at home with Halloween horror, their Christmas episodes manage to (somewhat) warm the heart while staying true to the series' subversive muse. "She of Little Faith," to quote a disillusioned Lisa, "could not be more blasphemous," but it does boast guest voice Richard Gere as Lisa's Buddhist mentor. This collection also includes the vintage "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire," which launched the series, the classic "Mr. Plow" ("Call Mr. Plow/That's my name/That name again is Mr. Plow"), "Miracle on Evergreen Terrace," and "Grift of the Magi," with Gary Coleman making like Tiny Tim ("Whatchu talkin' bout...everyone!"). As holiday host Krusty the Clown proclaims in "Magi," this Simpsons stocking stuffer is guaranteed to give you and yours "a merry Christmas, a happy Hanukkah, a kwazy Kwanzaa, and a solemn and dignified Ramadan." --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! Nov. 24 2007
By Chris
Format:DVD
I was - to put it mildly - delighted to receive this as a Christmas present, being a massive fan of the show. Even though I'd seen the episodes featured, they are so packed with jokes and layers of humour that you'll probably miss something the first time and notice it the next. The makers are absolute geniuses and they always deliver! Long Live The Simpsons, it'd be once and for all a dull world without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious May 2 2004
Format:DVD
I loved "The Simpsons" right from the first episode I ever watched (1997's "The Cartridge Family"), and I already have the first season on dvd (hope to be getting the other 2 really soon). Anyway, I got "Christmas With The Simpsons" on Christmas, and I admit that I hadn't laughed that hard in ages. The show's witty humor comes out full - throttle, and every episode is sure to warm your heart.
The first episode of the dvd is possibly the most significant episode in the series. "Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire" was the very first episode of the series. It aired originally on December 17, 1989, and television hasn't been the same since. In this premiere, Bart gets a tattoo. Homer must spend the Christmas money to get it removed, but he's not worried because he has his Christmas bonus to look forward to. Until his boss Mr. Burns decide to cut it. Their Christmas in limbo, a friend recommends that Homer go to the racetrack to bet on dogs. But he bets on the loser, a mutt named Santa's Little Helper. But the day is saved when Homer and Bart adopt the dog, and it's the best Christmas present they ever got.
"Mr. Plow" really has nothing to do with Christmas, but it's still my favorite episode. Homer starts a successful snow plow business called Mr. Plow. He makes a goldmine of cash. His best friend Barney Gumble thinks that by copying Homer, he too can be a successful human being. It turns out that Barney's business, Plow King, is even more successful than Homer's (Linda Ronstadt even appears in a comercial for it). Gripped by jealousy, Homer pulls the ultimate revenge plot on Barney. But soon, he realizes what he did was wrong and saves his life. My favorite episode.
"Miracle On Evergreen Terrace" is my seconnd favorite.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Very Christmas-y Nov. 23 2003
Format:DVD
Fox really should have planned this DVD better. The first episode on it, the ancient 'Simpsons Roasting Over An Open Fire', is already on the Season 1 box set so why would we want it on this? 'Mr Plow' will be on the Season 4 set and really has nothing to do with Christmas aside from the fact that there is snow in the background. 'Miracle on Evergreen Terrace' is a good episode tho despite the stupid ending, which has become mandatory in recent seasons. 'The Grift of Magi' is another recent episode that is more full of cynicism and forced attempts at satire than an actual story. There are some laughs but I feel guilty watching any recent Simpsons as it has LONG lost its charm. 'She of Little Faith' is an episode starring Richard Gere as himself and has NOTHING to do with Xmas at all until the last few minutes.
I'm very disappointed with this DVD. Fox could have selected the episodes better. Such us 'Marge Be Not Proud' when Bart is caught shoplifting. That could have been included instead of the incredibly old first episode. Its mere presence reduces the value of this DVD severely.
The DVD is in 1.33:1 as drawn with Dolby 2.0. The only extra is a 'Best of Mr Burns clip' which shows all the worst bits of Mr Burns strangely enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Un bon divertissement des fêtes Nov. 29 2004
Format:DVD
La bande sonore française (québécoise) n'est disponible que pour les 4 premiers épisodes et non pou les 5. La qualité visuelle du premier épisode laisse à désirer, mais n'oubliez pas que c'est le tout premier épisode de la série. L'achat vaut quand même la peine pour les fans des Simpsons.
1. Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire (Homère au nez rouge)
2. Mr. Plow (Le chasse-neige)
3. Miracle On Evergreen Terrace (Noël d'enfer)
4. Grift Of The Magi (Le Père Noël est un escroc)
5. She Of Little Faith (Sans foi ni toit)

3.0 out of 5 stars The forever arguable Greatness of Simpsons April 1 2004
Format:DVD
Okay, basically there are three really good episodes on this DVD, and two somewhere between okay and good. There are two episodes with obvious relevance to Christmas, one where Christmas comes in in the middle, one where the only connection is the snow on the ground.
"Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire"- 8 on a scale of 1 to 10. It's the first half hour episode ever made, and has a strong Christmas connection throughout, but you can own this on the first season DVD.
"Mr. Plow"- 9.5 out of 10. A wonderful episode in which Homer gets a job plowing, but Barney does, too, and steals his business.
There is a connection to winter, but the word "Christmas" isn't even said in the episode. Besides, on June 15th this will be available on the fourth season DVD.
"Miracle on Evergreen Terrace"- 7.5 out of 10. It's a good episode with a bad ending. Bart accidentally burns the Christmas tree and presents, hides it, and claims a burglar took it. A better episode from this time period would have been "Marge be not Proud," which relates to Christmas at the end.
"Grift of the Magi"- 7 out of 10. An evil toy named Funzo must be stopped. It doesn't have a great plot or a great ending. This episode is a good example of how the Simpsons have gone way downhill in recent years. They do, however, commonly have guest stars now, which is good. Gary Coleman guest stars as himself in this episode. Christmas comes in at the end.
"She of Little Faith"- 6 out of 10. Lisa becomes a Buddhist because the church loses its holiness when Mr. Burns puts advertisements and vendors in it. Richard Gere is a guest voice, and Christmas comes in at the end.
"Mr. Burns Featurette"- 2 out of 10. Like the "Kang and Kodos Featurette," this is boring and it's a waste of time to watch it. At least the "Kang and Kodos Featurette" fit in with the Halloween theme, but this doesn't go with the Christmas one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good idea , poorly executed
This disc was a good idea but poorly executed. I seem to remember a simpsons christmas episode where bart burns all the presents. That was a good episode and wasn't on the disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome for those of us without Fox/Sky
I am quite prepared to admit that it is annoying Fox leave such a long time between season sets, and so it is actually a good thing to have this. Read more
