Featurette: Mr. Burns' Finest Moments
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

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.Read more ›
"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.
Episode 1 Simpsons roasting on a open fire- As soon as you start this episode you can tell it wont be that funny because it is one of the earlier simpson episodes,but if you're in for a good old fashion simpsons christmas go ahead and give this episode a try.
Episode 2 Mr.plow- One word hilarious. this is by far the best episode on the dvd. This episode alone is the worth the 12.00$ I paid for the movie. With guest voices by adam west and linda ronstant it makes the episode even more funny, one thing about this episode is it's not about christmas, the only thing related to christmas in this episode is the snow.
Episode 3 Miracle on EVERGREEN TERRACE-This episode is probley in my book the 3rd funnist episode out of the five, but I must admit its probley because I seen it so many times. There are funny parts in this episode though like the guest voice of alex trebek.
Episode 4 Grift of the magi. This episode just like mr.plow is also hilarious the 2nd funniest on the dvd. What tops this one off is defiantly gary coleman which is by far one of the funnyiest parts on the episode and is also by far the best guest speaker on the dvd. You should defintly purchase thie dvd for mr.plow and grift of the magi
Episode 5 She of little faith- She of little faith is only a little good it has very funny parts but the storyline of the episode is the stupidest on the dvd. the guest speaker on the episode is richard gere which isnt that funny.Read more ›
