Synopsis


Beginning with The Simpsons Christmas Special, the first season of the legendary prime-time animated series bore more of a resemblance to the cartoon shorts shown on The Tracy Ullman Show that show was spun off from than to the sharp social satire it would become. Premiering in late 1989, the show introduced viewers to the titular family, Bart, Homer, Marge, Lisa, and Maggie, as well as the countless other inhabitants of Springfield. First-season episodes saw the family get their dog, Santa's Little Helper, try therapy, and face the devious Sideshow Bob (Kelsey Grammer) for the first time. ~ Matthew Tobey

    This Simpsons season was so worth the purchase and will never get old even after seeing all the episodes. Who doesn't like the Simpsons, I guess that's why they are on season 28 and going strong. The purchase at Bestbuy was well worth the great discounted price and I plan to keep it till the dvd goes out or the zombie apocalypse occurs.

    There's never been anything like the Simpsons! This is a nice DVD set. Not as many features as subsequent seasons, but if you love The Simpsons it's a nice set with some historical perspective on the show. It did change quite a bit in the years following so if you've never seen the first few seasons it may seem odd, in that they changed voices, and even the artwork as the years went by.

    Modern Era Cartoons for Grown-Ups

    We take the Simpsons for granted now, but who would have thought when it first came out that it would be around for this long? Mixed-in with the crass and absurd humor are the occasional jokes intended for "grown-ups" like us who enjoyed cartoons as kids but wanted more dialogue and less slapstick for our laughs. Season 1 of the Simpsons arguably started that wave.

    This is arguably one of the most historic seasons of a television series. It started one of the greatest shows in history. Even though some episodes can be a task to watch at times, it's worth it. The bonus features are great. The commentaries alone show that the creators really care about the show

    Introduced to The Simpsons family in the 90s, I've been a fan for more than 20+ years. A must for any fan as it is the first season that Matt Groening takes us on a trip to good ol' Springfield, where its folks remind us of at least someone we know :D

    Pretty sure if you have watched the Simpsons this is a necessary purchase. It is one of the longest running TV shows to date and you can see why. The humor is great! As the seasons go on they keep getting better!

    You can't go wrong with The Simpsons. I'm a little annoyed that there isn't a "play all" selection on the menu so each episode has to be selected. Not really that big of a deal though.
