See all 180 positive reviews elizabeth nolan 5.0 out of 5 starsI never found a completely horrible one. This season has some great episodes February 28, 2017 I see every season after season 8 separate, mainly because I have the guide with the first eight seasons. There's been a lot of talk about declining quality with the Simpsons but up until this current season, season 28, I never found a completely horrible one. This season has some great episodes. Homer and the family go to New York city to retrieve the car and everything goes wrong (at least for Homer), Lisa and bart are chosen to be on a news show (and Homer wants a duck for his monkey), we hear how Lisa got her sax (and about the funky grampa), Homer wages a war with the garbage men (and rattles a few bird cages) and Marge and Homer try to rekindle their sex life (and rock the casbah in the craziest of ways). Once again, we have another great season of the Simpsons. Read more 3 people found this helpful

Deputy-_-M_A_X___P_O_W_E_R 5.0 out of 5 starsThe kids of Springfield live out The Lord of the Flies, A memorable Christmas disaster, and Homer.... joins the Navy? June 2, 2014Format: DVDVerified Purchase Here is another 25 episode season of The Simpsons that won 3 Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Animated Program, Outstanding Voice-Over Performance, and the Outstanding Music and Lyrics award. This season also had a few more Emmy nominations as well as nominations from the Saturn Awards and the Golden Reel Awards.

Notable episodes from this stellar season contain such favorites as "Simpson Tide" Where Homer joins the Navy after losing his job. Homer takes command of a sub and gets into some hot water. "Das Bus" The school kids are on a field trip and are in a tragic accident that leaves them stranded on an island. "Natural Born Kissers" Homer and Marge spice up the bedroom by taking the bedroom out in public places! Works great until they get caught. "Bart Carney" Homer and Bart become carnies and get scammed by the very same carnies that took them under their wing. "Miracle on Evergreen Terrace" The Cristmas episode in where Bart wakes up early to open gifts early. He gets what he wants which was a toy firetruck which he ironically sets the tree on fire along with everyones gifts. Bart then decides to get rid of the evidence and create a false story of a burglarer stealing Christmas. "The Cartridge Family" (One of my personal favorites) Homer buys a gun for protecting his family. Unfortunately, Homer isn't the best person to own a gun and it drives the family away.

Great season to own! Although this does have a few of my top favorite Simpson episodes, it does have the one episode of the SImpsons that I don't like. "All Singing, All Dancing" is my least favorite episode. It's basically a clip show, but of all the musical scenes in the Simpsons rolled into one episode. This is the only one I personally skip ahead. Other than that, Season 9 of The Simpsons is a great addition to any collection. One person found this helpful Helpful Report abuse Comment

Dr. Johannes Kowalski 5.0 out of 5 starsAnother masterpiece collectors cannot miss! February 7, 2007Format: DVDVerified Purchase I bought this season 9 box via amazon.com although i am living in Berlin, Germany, because it will be out i Europe later and the original voices. In my opinion season 9 includes many treasures of the 18 (ok, season 18 is still running) Simpsons seasons: Recently the episode "The city of New York vs. Homer Simpson" was voted number 1 episode out seasons 1-16 in Germany.

Do You remember "Fly vs. Fly" taken from the fabulous Treehouse of Horror episode of this season - that is one of the best horror stories, or Homer using the teleport device to pee or get beer from the couch? Also great: The Cartridge Family, when Homer waits for his revolver and all the shootable "objects" appear, i like Patty and Selma best. The Simpsons loose their home in Bart Carny and Homer has to get it back with his frisbee skills, the joy of sect shows a taste of simp-entology, "das bus" sends the kids into the wilderness and Moe finally finds his big love (Helen Hunt). Take a good look at the male Simpsons in "Lisa the Simpson", especially their jobs. Don't miss the trillion dollar episode, Krusty's porn collection, and all the places Homer and Mage make love in the final episode of this great season.

This box includes the following episodes:

tvtv3 5.0 out of 5 starsStill In THE SIMPSONS Golden Era October 7, 2007Format: DVD The ninth season of THE SIMPSONS, the longest prime time animated show in history, proved to be a turning point season. It was a transition year for the show as many writers, runners, etc. who had been with the show left. Some would argue that season nine was the last great season of THE SIMPSONS for several years until about season fifteen or sixteen. Reflecting the transition of the show's workforce, season nine includes episodes that have become classic SIMPSONS episodes, e.g. "The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson" and "Trash of the Titans", as well as episodes that were okay, but nothing special, e.g. "Bart Star" and "All Singing, All Dancing." Season nine is the last season to feature Phil Hartman (who was murdered the following summer by his wife) voicing some great secondary characters, such as Lionel Hutz. The complete list of episodes is:

"The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson"--After a late night drinking spree, Homer lets Barney borrow his car. Weeks later Homer receives a letter from the City of New York informing him that his car is illegally parked and that if it isn't moved, will soon be towed. Homer hates New York, but packs up the family and sets off on a bus to the Big Apple to get back his car. This episode has some amazing background and set animation. It's also features the Twin Towers. For three years after Sept. 11, 2001, the episode was never seen in syndication but has since been added back into the rotation. Also, this episode has the first appearance of Duff Man.

"The Principal and the Pauper"--turns out that Principal Skinner isn't the man who he claimed to be over twenty years ago when he returned home from Vietnam. Turns out Principal Skinner is actually Armin Tamzarian a troubled youth who served under the real Seymour Skinner in Vietnam. The real Seymour Skinner returns to Springfield and Armin Tamzarian leaves his job and moves to Capital City.

"Lisa's Sax"--Lisa's saxophone is destroyed and Homer and Marge explain how Lisa got her saxophone in the first place.

"Treehouse of Horror VIII"--"Homega Man" finds Homer as the last man left alive living in Springfield after a nuclear Holocaust. "Fly vs. Fly" has Bart turning into a mutant fly. "Easy-Bake Coven" stars Marge in a segment that parodies THE CRUCIBAL (with a nod to the Scarlet Letter).

"The Cartridge Family"--a soccer riot that leads to city-wide looting and violence causes Homer to decide he needs a gun to protect his family. He buys a firearm and joins the NRA. Marge can't stand having the gun in the house and forces Homer to choose between keeping the gun or living with his family.

"Bart Star"--Homer gets Ned Flanders so upset that he quits as the coach of the local pee-wee football team and gives the job to Homer. Remembering how unsupported his own father was, Homer attempts to build Bart up by showing favoritism and making him the quarterback. However, Bart isn't any good and finds himself the center of physical correction by his teammates.

"The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons"--Apu is the most eligible bachelor in Springfield and is living the good life. That is until his mother writes to inform him she is coming to visit along with his pre-arranged bride, Manjula, so that they can be married.

"Lisa the Skeptic"--during a school archeological dig, Lisa uncovers what appears to be the skeleton of an angel. Lisa is skeptical, but the town finds itself in a frenzy.

"Realty Bites"--Marge gets a job as a real estate agent. I believe this is the first appearance of Gil.

"Miracle on Evergreen Terrace"--during a morning of Christmas greed, Bart accidentally burns down the Christmas tree and all the Christmas presents. He hides the evidence under a pile of buried snow in the front yard. The citizens of Springfield take pity upon the Simpsons in a scene taken from IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE. That is until the townfolk find out exactly what Bart did.

"All Singing, All Dancing"--a clip show told in song that looks back at some of the singing and dancing moments of the first eight seasons of THE SIMPSONS.

"Bart Carny"--Bart and Homer start working at a traveling carnival after Bart destroys Hitler's car. Bart and Homer befriend one of the carnies and his son, but soon find themselves in a battle of wits as the carnies squat the Simpsons' home.

"The Joy of Sect"--the Simpsons and many of the other citizens of Springfield find themselves joining and being brainwashed into a cult. Marge escapes and with the help of Ned Flanders and Rev. Lovejoy attempts to get her family back and uncover the scam The Leader is pulling.

"Das Bus"--the Simpsons take on LORD OF THE FLIES. A Springfield Elementary bus crashes and the students find themselves on a deserted island and attempt to build a society of their own.

"The Last Temptation of Krust"--Krusty realizes that his material hasn't aged well and thinks about leaving the business. That is until he just starts telling the truth and discovers comedy gold.

"Dumbell Indemnity"--Moe falls in love and gives his new girlfriend the best that money can buy. However, the money dries up and Moe decides to commit insurance fraud, with the help of Home, in order to keep his lady in style. Homer is caught and Moe lets him take the fall.

"Lisa the Simpson"--Lisa is afraid she might be losing her intelligence and is told by all the male members of her family that there is nothing she can do because of the "Simpson" gene that brings about ignorance. She decides to sap out the best from life she can before she forgets how to enjoy things like jazz and museums.

"This Little Wiggy"--Marge forces Bart to have a playdate with Ralph Wiggum. Bart becomes friends with Ralph and with the help of Chief Wiggum's master town key they have the time of their lives. This is the episode when Ralph first mentions the leprechaun that tells him to burn things.

"Simpson Tide"--Home and his friends join the Naval Reserve and find themselves aboard a nuclear submarine. After the Captain is ejecting from a torpedo tube, Homer finds himself in command of the vessel and attempting to ward of an international incident.

"The Trouble with Trillions"--Homer finds himself working for the IRS after failing to fill out an income tax return properly. Homer agrees to entrap Mr. Burns because of a mysterious trillion dollar bill Mr. Burns stole from the government over fifty years before.

"Girly Edition"--Lisa and Bart become co-anchors of a children's operating news program.

"Trash of the Titans"--the 200th episode of THE SIMPSONS. Homer decides to run for the office of sanitation commissioner and brings about radical changes when elected. Steve Martin and U2 both guest voiced.

"King of the Hill"--in attempt to win over the adoration of Bart, Homer secretly begins bulking up. He's approached by two promoters and agrees to climb the killing mountain, Murderhorn.

"Lost Our Lisa"--Lisa finagles her way into getting to ride the public bus downtown to see a special Egyptian exhibit at the museum. The bus doesn't go where she wants to and she finds herself wandering around Springfield alone. Homer attempts to rescue her and they share a very special father and daughter moment together.

"Natural Born Kissers"--Marge and Homer's love life has grown stale. After discovering how excited they are after almost being caught in public, there passion is reignited. Then they are almost discovered at a miniature golf course and are forced to flee through town naked.

My favorite episodes from this season are "The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson", "Treehouse of Horror VII", "Bart Carny", "Das Bus", "Trash of the Titans", and "Lost Our Lisa."

Special features in the season nine set include commentaries for all the episodes; a couple of Bit From the Animators segments with Yeardley Smith, Pete Michels, Mike Anderson, and Matt Groening, a moment with U2; Butterfinger commercials and an commercials for an Australian snack called CCs; a riff from Matt Groening; deleted scenes; original sketches; and two animation showcases.

All said and done, Season Nine is a great season of THE SIMPSONS. 6 people found this helpful Helpful Report abuse Comment

mwreview 4.0 out of 5 stars"Keep looking shocked and move slowly towards the cake"---Homer May 5, 2007Format: DVD I used to think that season 9 was the season that The Simpsons started motoring up that ramp towards the shark. After watching this 4 DVD set, however, I found a lot of very good episodes, especially the ones featuring Lisa which is probably why she got the cover to this set. I like the old record label theme to the packaging. The ramp might have been under construction, but this was not the season The Simpsons jumped the shark. DVDs contain the usual commentaries and deleted scenes.

Disc 1:

"The City of New York Vs. Homer Simpson": Barney abandons Homer's car in the city he despises the most: New York City. When Homer takes his family to retrieve the vehicle, they experience the best the city has to offer while Homer experiences the worst

"The Principal and the Pauper": Strange episode where the Simpsons started getting more outlandish storylines. It turns out that Seymour Skinner stole his identity from his Army Sergeant thought to be dead. Skinner's mother's acceptance is actually rather believable but how the town reacted to the revelation (what the real Skinner did to receive such scorn is unclear) is almost silly. The judge was right; this episode should never be spoken of again.

"Lisa's Sax": One of my favorites. A story about how Lisa got her saxophone (or "saxomaphone" as Homer calls it) turns into a cute flashback story about how Bart became a proud underachiever.

"Treehouse of Horror VIII": One of the better Halloween specials. "The Homega Man"--Mayor Quimby offends the French and Homer thinks he's the sole survivor of the resulting neutron blast, until he's encountered by zombies. "Fly Vs. Fly"--Bart uses a Professor Frink's transporter to morph with a fly. I like when the spider shakes his fists at Bart the prankster fly and when monster Bart is choking Lisa in the kitchen and Homer is seen in the background using the transporter to get a beer out of the fridge. "Easy-Bake Coven"--Marge and her sisters turn out to be real witches in 1649 Sprynge Fielde.

"The Cartridge Family": A soccer riot causes Marge to be concerned about the safety of her family so Homer gets a gun but is so irresponsible with it that Marge feels even less safe. Homer is very over-the-top here.

"Bart Star": Homer becomes coach of Bart's peewee football team and gives him special treatment. Joe Namath is guest.

Disc 2:

"The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons": Just when the single women of Springfield discover Apu as a hot bachelor, he is summoned to an arranged marriage. He tries to get out of it by pretending to be married to Marge. Very funny. When Apu's mother falls outside the Kwiki Mart, Apu is relieved that it buys him time. Homer thinking about a yodle he ate and forgetting to tell Marge about the plan is hilarious.

"Lisa the Skeptic": Interesting episode. Honor students are rewarded and detention students are punished with an archeological dig where Lisa discovers a skeleton that looks like an angel.

"Reality Bites": Homer buys Snake's beloved sports car at a police seized-property auction and Snake wants revenge. Meanwhile, Marge becomes a Realtor and sells the Flanderses the town murder house. Stupid ending.

"Miracle on Evergreen Terrace": Bart burns down the family Christmas presents and plastic tree and makes up a story about being robbed. The town supports them until they find out it's a hoax. Guest Alex Trebek. OK in parts but silly in others. Goes all over the place.

"All Singing All Dancing": Clips of past musical numbers. Totally lame.

"Bart Carny": Homer takes in a couple of carnies down on their luck and they help themselves...to the Simpsons' home. Special guest: Jim Varney.

"The Joy of Sect": Homer, and most of Springfield, join the Movementarians. "Church, cult, cult, church. So we get bored someplace else every Sunday. Does this really change our day-to-day lives?"--Bart.

Disc 3:

"Das Bus": A take-off of Lord of the Flies where Bart and his classmates are stranded on a deserted island.

"The Last Temptation of Krust": When his nightclub act is a bust, Krusty the Clown decides to retire until he finds out that criticizing other comics and money-grubbing companies will reinvent his career. Comedy, however, turns out not to be what's really in his blood. Guests include Jay Leno, Janeane Garofalo, Bobcat Goldthwait.

"Dumbbell Indemnity": Mo finally finds a woman who will go out with him but resorts to deception and fraud to keep her. Not one of my favorites.

"Lisa the Simpson": The best episode of this season. Lisa is puzzled by a kid's puzzle and freaks out when grandpa tells her about the Simpson gene that causes Simpsons to go through a process of "dumbening."

"This Little Wiggy": Marge sets up a playdate for Bart--Ralph Wiggum. Bart and Ralph get hold of Police chief Wiggum's master key and use it to turn on an electric chair at an abandoned prison. Coincidentally, Mayor Quimby decides to reopen the prison and use the chair for a publicity stunt.

"Simpson Tide": Homer and his pals join the Naval Reserve and is put in charge by his captain (Capt. Tennille ha, ha), shoots his captain out a torpedo tube, and takes his sub into Russian waters. Yeah, it's as stupid as that. Guests voices: Bob Denver, Rod Steiger.

"The Trouble With Trillions": After a severe audit, Homer is hired by the IRS to help convict Mr. Burns for stealing a trillion dollar bill from the government.

Disc 4:

"Girly Edition": Lisa and Bart co-anchor a kid's news TV show and Lisa thinks Bart's manipulative "Bart's People" segments are jeopardizing the integrity of the show. Meanwhile, Homer gets a helper monkey who turns out to be as fat and lazy as he is. "But what do you expect? His cholesterol is through the roof!" Better than average episode.

"Trash of the Titans": 200th episode. Why that is so important, I don't know. Homer gets into a fight with the garbage men and they cut off his service. Homer takes on the city and campaigns to become Sanitation Commissioner. "It's just like David and Goliath, only this time David's going to win." U2 makes appearance. Crying Indian at the end for us Generation Xers.

"King of the Hill": Another of the better episodes. After being humiliated in front of Bart during a church picnic game of capture the flag, Homer starts working out and eating Powersauce bars. For a Powersauce promotion, Homer attempts to climb the Murderhorn. Highlight--The Commi-Nazi logo in the McBain movie.

"Lost Our Lisa": Lisa really wants to see the Isis exhibit at the museum but no one will drive her. She decides to take the bus alone and gets lost. Touching father/daughter ending.

"Natural Born Kissers": Homer and Marge try to spice up their marriage by getting romantic in forbidden places. 5 people found this helpful Helpful Report abuse Comment

N. Durham HALL OF FAME 5.0 out of 5 starsOne of the last great seasons of the long running show December 6, 2006Format: DVD As the Simpsons reached it's landmark ninth season, by the time the last few episodes came around, it was clear that perhaps there was a decline happening in the series' quality. The season starts out great however with the classic "City of New York VS Homer Simpson", as Homer and the family go to New York to recover Homer's illegally parked car. That episode is followed by the somewhat controversial "Principal and the Pauper" in which it is revealed that Principal Skinner isn't Principal Skinner, but an imposter, when the real Skinner (voiced by Martin Sheen) returns to Springfield. The "Treehouse of Horror" episode this season is a bit disappointing (it just doesn't have those laugh out loud moments that previous ones had), and also throughout this season, Bart tries out for the Homer coached Pee-Wee football team, Apu (Hank Azaria) worries over his arranged marriage, Bart accidently burns up the presents and blames it on made up burglars, and Mr. Burns takes a trip to Cuba with a trillion dollar bill. The standout episodes of this season are undoubtadly "Bart Carny" where Homer and Bart get scammed by carnies (one of whom is voiced by the late Jim Varney), and "The Little Wiggy" in which Ralph gets set up on a "play date" with Bart. The landmark 200th episode, "Trash of the Titans", features Steve Martin and U2, but this where you can notice a decline in the show's quality. The season closer, "Natural Born Kissers", isn't all that great either sadly, but the good does outweigh the bad here with this season set. All in all, for the most part the ninth season of the Simpsons is the same kind of tongue in cheek humor that you would come to expect, and it's worth picking up for longtime fans of the long running show. 9 people found this helpful Helpful Report abuse Comment

E.J. Rupert 5.0 out of 5 stars"Why, why was I programmed to feel pain?" January 26, 2007Format: DVD The Simpsons - The Complete Ninth Season

I don't watch many new episodes of "The Simpsons" (I feel that it stopped being funny during Season 11, but I'll save that for a forum discussion), but I can never get enough of the older episodes and the ninth season still brought the laughs. The writing was a little different and so were the jokes but the characters were so well developed that the stories wrote themselves. If there were any joke that I didn't find funny, it's because I tried to compare it to older episodes. The reality of it all is that if you laughed at these episodes back then, you'll laugh at them now. There's no need to analyze this season. Why would you anyway, it's "The Simpsons", you're not supposed to think while you watch this!

The DVD format is great as it usually is. I don't know about anyone else, but I love the menu setups for their sets, including this one. The animation there is great. As far as favorite episodes, I liked "The Joy of Sect", "Trash of the Titans" and "Natural Born Kissers" the most. Bring on Season 10. -EJR Helpful Report abuse Comment

Pop Zeus 4.0 out of 5 starsThe (nearly) classic season 9 December 29, 2006Format: DVD The Simpsons season 9 often shows the show in it's well documented "slight decline in quality over the years" (I would actually say the show began it's SLOW decline as early as season 5 when the series became increasingly reliant on unbelievable plots and then completely dropped any sense of realism by season 7), but these episodes are still better than anything else on television (save for The Simpsons sets already released).

Season 9 is essentially a mixed bag of Simpsons episodes, ranging from all time classics, to candidates for worst episode ever, with everything in-between. Great episodes include: "The Cartridge Family" (which actually includes "commentary" from John Swartzwelder), "Lisa's Sax", and "Natural Born Kissers"

Though season 9 isn't as consistantly funny as season 8 or even season 10, The Simpsons remains the best television DVD box sets on the market because of the excellent commentary on every episode, elaborative packaging, deleted scenes, and of course, the episodes. 4 people found this helpful Helpful Report abuse Comment

Human 5.0 out of 5 starsI'm not handicapped...I'm just lazy. December 27, 2006Format: DVD A few of you retards claim that Season 9 was the beginning of the end for the show, but if I had to rank my top-ten favorite episodes, at least five of them would come from this season, including The Cartridge Family, Trash of the Titans, The Trouble with Trillions, Girly Edition, and Natural Born Kissers.

As an earlier reviewer mentioned, the show became more dependent on bit characters playing major roles in epidoses, like Ralph's role in This Little Wiggy (a great episode). While this has presented problems in more recent seasons, it was a fresh idea in Season 9 and it works beautifully. Also, the addition of guest stars like Joe Nameth and Bill Gates, among others, was a great addition to the show. In more recent episodes, the entire 30 minutes has been spoiled with guest stars, but in Season 9, the guests began appearing just long enough to mix things up.

Season 9 is also heavy on clever political satire, which is never bad. I took an American civics class several years ago and the teacher showed several episodes from Season 9 as part of the course curriculum. This season is also the most quotable, including Homer's gem "Animals are crapping in our houses and we're picking it up! Did we lose a war? That's not America! That's not even Mexico!"

How can you improve on that? You can't. 2 people found this helpful Helpful Report abuse Comment

N. Durham HALL OF FAME 5.0 out of 5 starsOne of the last great seasons of a legendary show December 6, 2006Format: DVD As the Simpsons reached it's landmark ninth season, by the time the last few episodes came around, it was clear that perhaps there was a decline happening in the series' quality. The season starts out great however with the classic "City of New York VS Homer Simpson", as Homer and the family go to New York to recover Homer's illegally parked car. That episode is followed by the somewhat controversial "Principal and the Pauper" in which it is revealed that Principal Skinner isn't Principal Skinner, but an imposter, when the real Skinner (voiced by Martin Sheen) returns to Springfield. The "Treehouse of Horror" episode this season is a bit disappointing (it just doesn't have those laugh out loud moments that previous ones had), and also throughout this season, Bart tries out for the Homer coached Pee-Wee football team, Apu (Hank Azaria) worries over his arranged marriage, Bart accidently burns up the presents and blames it on made up burglars, and Mr. Burns takes a trip to Cuba with a trillion dollar bill. The standout episodes of this season are undoubtadly "Bart Carny" where Homer and Bart get scammed by carnies (one of whom is voiced by the late Jim Varney), and "The Little Wiggy" in which Ralph gets set up on a "play date" with Bart. The landmark 200th episode, "Trash of the Titans", features Steve Martin and U2, but this where you can notice a decline in the show's quality. The season closer, "Natural Born Kissers", isn't all that great either sadly, but the good does outweigh the bad here with this season set. All in all, for the most part the ninth season of the Simpsons is the same kind of tongue in cheek humor that you would come to expect, and it's worth picking up for longtime fans of the long running show. 22 people found this helpful Helpful Report abuse Comment
