25 Best Simpsons Episodes of All Time

Do you have a favorite Simpsons episode? Some of our fellow Simpsons fanatics might be saying “just one?” After all, there are plenty to choose from.

The Simpsons is the longest-running animated series. For over 30 years, this working-class family has cracked us up with their antics, as well as the antics of their fellow residents in Springfield.

The creator of the show, Matt Groening, creates a world of satire, absurdity, and politics. The Simpsons isn’t afraid to “go there.”

Since its creation, many people have come up with their own adult animation. While a lot of them are great, there is only one original. Here are the 25 Best Simpsons Episodes of All Time.

Homer's Phobia


When this episode aired, homosexuality was still not really talked about on television. So, the idea of bringing in a gay character was pretty risky at the time.

What makes this episode entertaining is that not only does it deal with the absurdity of bigotry, but it also has a heartfelt message at the end. Done, of course, with The Simpsons hilarity.


Bart After Dark


Imagine that you’re a 10-year-old boy, and after you destroy property at an old house, you have to make up for it by working there. Now imagine the house is actually a “gentleman’s club.”

If you’ve watched this episode, you definitely remember the big musical number at the end.


King-Size Homer


Any time Homer goes on a mission to embrace laziness, you are sure to get a laugh.

When he discovers that he can get paid to not work simply by getting on disability, Homer decides to gain as much weight as possible so he is immobile.


Bart Sells His Soul


Believing there is no such thing as a soul, Bart sells his to his best friend Milhouse for $5.00. He quickly realizes this is a mistake and does whatever possible to get it back.

One of the best parts of this episode is when Lisa taunts Bart with a prayer, “God bless my soul, and mom’s soul, and dad’s soul.”


Homer's Enemy


Nobody can drive somebody as crazy as Homer Simpson can. In this episode, we are introduced to Matt Grimes, a new employee at the nuclear power plant.

He instantly becomes annoyed at Homer’s laziness and lack of work ethic. When he tricks Homer into entering a contest for children, Grimes realizes that no matter what Homer does, he usually comes out on top.
