Home Entertainment Cartoons Dos and Don’t for the Simpson’s Marathon

Dos and Don’t for the Simpson’s Marathon


Fxx is showing EVERY EPISODE OF THE SIMPSONS ever in order, a 12-day marathon that started yesterday. The event is to celebrate theFxx getting the rebroadcast rights to every Simpsons episode, for about $1 billion. Meaning Fxx will basically be the Simpsons channell…and that’s a great idea!

We caught some Season Three classics last night, and the effect of seeing “One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish”, “The Way We Was”, “Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th”, and “Principal Charming” in order as they were when last we viewed them 20+ years ago…well time passes quickly when you quote Simpsons episodes. Also mind bggling to think the couch gag and the blackboard gag were in place right from the start.

Vulture has a veiwing guide and suggests that tonight is the nihgt for an all nighter with Season Four and Five:

You’re not as young as used to be. You used to rock and roll all night, and party every day. Then it was every other day. Now you’re lucky to find half an hour a week to get caught up with your DVR before you fall asleep on the couch. But party like it’s 1993 from Saturday evening until Sunday morning. That’s when season four turns into season five, and if you’re fast asleep, you’ll miss such classics as “Rosebud,” “Homer’s Barbershop Quartet,” and freaking “Cape Feare” — you don’t want to miss “Cape Feare.” Sunday night into Monday morning is also incredible, but, again, you’re not as young as you used to be. None of us are.

Yeah we’d go along with that one. Also although they say now to drool over teh Cnan O’Brien episodes, he wrote “New Kid Ont The Block” where Bart falls in love and dreams his heart is ripped out and thrown against the wall by the girl he loves who says, “Guess you won’t be needing that any more.” So yeah, Conan O’Brien.

For more info, here’s the actual schedule of episodes and some old intervews from NPR.


  1. Geez… I haven’t watched an episode since “Homer’s Phobia” in 1997.

    Of course, I was watching (and recording) The Simpsons from The Tracey Ullman Show back when Groening was a cartoonist. (Yes, that includes Dr. N!Godatu. I’ve paid my dues.)

    I caught a few this weekend. I especially liked the “future Lisa” episode set in 2010!

    The only episode I really want to schedule is “22 Short Films About Springfield” but I think we’re past that on air. (Season Seven) Yup… Season Ten today.

    Oh well. FXNow will have them soon. Or I could find it on YouTube…

    I would love to see an MP3 album of the various Simpsons variations used during the closing credits.
