Simpsons Did It!
Verified purchase
A great selection of episodes, but one especially stood out to me.

Watch Viva Ned Flanders and you'll see the entire plot of The Hangover down to Mike Tyson and a tiger.

Had to show my son the episode with the spoiled meat.

"Hey, this shrimp isn't frozen! And it smells funny."

"OK, make it 10 pounds."

"WooHoo!"

Sirens wailing . . . . . brilliant.

Great, but episodes in regular seasons are better
Verified purchase
These episodes are great. Just like how I remembered them when I was little. However, I personally think the episodes in the regular seasons are funnier.
