Product Description

Amazon.ca

Broadcast in 1991, the third season of The Simpsons contains a host of candidates for "Best Simpsons Episode Ever." Homer is in such good form throughout that a reasonable case can be made that he has superseded the importance of his Greek namesake in the annals of culture and civilization. The opener, "Stark Raving Dad," for instance, features a guest appearance by an uncredited Michael Jackson, who plays an obese white inmate whom Homer meets while confined to a mental institution. Other standout episodes include "Like Father, Like Clown," in which Krusty reveals he is estranged from his Rabbi father; this is The Simpsons at the height of its powers, mature, ironic, erudite, and touching while bristling with slapstick and Bart-inspired cheek. "Flaming Moe's" features Aerosmith and sees Homer invent a cocktail that desperate, sleazy bartender Moe steals from him. "Radio Bart" is another demonstration of the series' knack for cultural references, parodying the Billy Wilder movie Ace in the Hole. Finally, there's "Brother Can You Spare Two Dimes," in which Danny DeVito reprises his role as Homer's brother, regaining the fortune Homer lost him by inventing a Baby Translator. Immensely enjoyable at any level, this third year demonstrates conclusively that The Simpsons is quite simply, and by a large margin, the greatest television show ever. --David Stubbs

5.0 out of 5 stars "Modernist" Simpsons comes to DVD June 19 2004
Format:DVD
They cleaned up the animation a bit for the busy (24 epsiodes) third season in the Simpsons franchise. Straying from the style of the first season, the writers have adopted a more satircal style for the second and third season.
"Mr. Lisa goes to Washington" takes a vitriolic look at Capitol hill as Lisa finds out what turns the wheels of the American government, culminating in the phrase, "...one nation, under the dollar, with liberty and justice for none." An episode that can rightfully be called the greatest of the third season, "Like father, like clown" is a sincere look at the relationship between the young, comedic Krusty and his autere, Rabbi father, voiced by Hollywood veteran Jackie Mason. "Burns verkaufen der Kraftwerk" is rife with sharp, caustic referneces to the state of safety with nuclear power. "Lisa the Greek" is a mature, yet risible look on the relationship between Homer and his young daughter and the confidence she has in the shaky fathering of Homer. Danny DeVito reprises his role as the once affluent American car magnate looking to regain the opulence of the American businessman in "Brother, can you spare two dimes?"
The most represenative of the season three episodes, "Homer at the bat", displays the burgeoning hold on American culture as the eminence and ubitiquous nature of the show helped to bring in the vocal talents of a plethora of baseball greats, such as Cooperstown bound Roger Clemens and Wade Boggs. This Hollywood power has also helped to snare other wolrd renowned figures such as English prime minister Tony Blair.
Season three will always be symbolic of the popularity of the show and nealry hipnotic effect on the 13-23 year old age group. Fans who have lost interest in the post season 7 Simpsons now have a DVD collection to recall with pride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doh the third season June 18 2004
Format:DVD
They said it took so long because of the extras. Which I do not believe because they had the commentary on every episode. which should not have taken more than a week. All they had to do was get plugged up play the episodes and talk. They also had that that juke box thing which all they had to do was take it from the episode and put it together. Oh and they also had that thanksgiving parade all they had to do was take the tape and put it on the disk. so what would normaly tke about a month took a year. Well anyway they had 24 episodes and those stupid dvd extras I just mentiend. So buy them for the episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great season on the way to the peak July 23 2003
Format:DVD
Season three is where the show comes in the magic period of faultless episodes and incredible plots unlike today's junk. After the crude animation of the first two seasons the animation improves dramtically.

These episodes are classics Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington and When Flanders Failed are to of my favourite. The other are just as good, really there are no faults in this season and the next four seasons are just as good if not better. The plots are really good here, especially flaming moe's which is a true classic i love that episode so much. This is the peak of tv, nothing comes close to the simpsons at it's best...

4.0 out of 5 stars The (insanely long) wait is nearly over! Aug. 7 2003
Format:DVD
[THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE EPISODES DIRECTLY, NOT THE DVD ITSELF, AS IT HAS NOT BEEN CURRENTLY RELEASED. WHEN THE ITEM IS RELEASED I WILL POST A REVIEW FOR THE SET IN ITS ENTIRETY]
By the time the Third Season of The Simpsons rolled around, the characters and animation style had been fully developed. The first season was more like a standard sitcom than later Simpsons seasons, only it was animated. The second season used more experimental storylines. And of course, with the third season came pure excellence. The animators/writers had finally figured out the best ways to use the characters, and had come up with excellent storylines. Read on for brief episode summaries:
-Stark Raving Dad: Homer is thrown in a mental institution with a fat guy who thinks he's Michael Jackson.
-Mr. Lisa Goes To Washington: Lisa wins a local essay contest and is sent to Washington DC to participate in the national finals, but loses faith in democracy when seeing a senator taking a bribe.
-When Flanders Failed: Ned opens up a store that sells nothing but left-hand items. The store is a complete flop.
-Bart The Murderer: Bart begins working for the Springfield mob, and is soon arrested for Principal Skinner's supposed murder.
-Homer Defined: Homer pushes a random button and averts a meltdown at the power plant. He becomes a local hero.
-Like Father Like Clown: Bart and Lisa plot ways to reunite Krusty the Clown and his father, a Jewish rabbi.
-Treehouse Of Horror II: Bart, Lisa, and Homer all eat too much candy, and have three nightmares.
-Lisa's Pony: Homer, thinking Lisa doesn't love him, buys her a pony. This forces Homer to take two jobs.
