Now with Disney+, I finally have been able to re-watch some of my favorite Simpsons episodes. I just re-finished the second season, which improved on the animation but the stories got better and a bit more complex. Most characters finalized their personalities by the end of this season.
Lots of good moments like when Homer was able to re-grow his hair, got successful, and lost it all when he lost his hair again.
Or when Mr. Burns ran for Governor so his corrupt self could save his nuclear plant. It wasn’t a shock when the show eventually let it officially be known that he is a Republican.
I think this was the first time the show had parodied the Bible stories.
I forgot Marge almost got Itchy and Scratchy cancelled.
One of my favorite episodes was when Homer got to meet his wealthy half-brother Herb Powell.
And I bet everyone forgot that Patty dated Principal Skinner for a little while.
This was also the first for the Treehouse of Horror, a long-running sub-series of Halloween parodies of scary-stories.
