Tv Season Info

Series 4 of "The Simpsons" contains a number of the show's most-enduring classics, including "Marge vs. the Monorail," in which the Simpsons matriarch attempts to prevent the town of Springfield from wasting a budget surplus on an ill-advised boondoggle (the episode was written by future late-night host Conan O'Brien). Other highlights include Homer's stint as a union leader in "The Last Exit to Springfield," Lisa's attempt to turn down the romantic advances of an unpopular classmate in "I Love Lisa" and a comeback special for Krusty the Clown in "Krusty Gets Kancelled" (which features guest appearances by Bette Midler, Johnny Carson, Hugh Hefner, Luke Perry, Elizabeth Taylor and the Red Hot Chili Peppers).

Critic Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 4

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

There are a billion great gags in this one, from Krusty at Wimbledon to the parents celebrating their children leaving for the summer...

June 13, 2018 | Full Review…

"The Simpsons", like A Mighty Wind, or The Office, realizes and perfectly exploits the fact that the line between comedy and tragedy is so thin.

June 12, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Every episode from season four is perfect. TV at its best.

October 20, 2017 | Full Review…

When the show is at its best, as it was in this season, it's a combination of wicked satire and brilliant pop culture.

October 20, 2017 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

Groening is right about the fourth season -- it's brilliant from start to finish.

November 14, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

I can't choose between these two collections of the two best [fourth and fifth] seasons in "Simpsons" history, so I'm not going to.

Audience Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 4

Extraordinarily fun and full of laughs, Season 4 of The Simpsons marks the beginning of a golden age for the series where it seemingly could do no wrong. Featuring such classic episodes as "Kamp Krusty," "Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie," "Mr. Plow," "Marge vs. the Monorail," "I Love Lisa," and "Krusty Gets Cancelled," the writing is incredibly good and develops a lot of the supporting characters (such as Krusty the Clown). And, Phil Hartman takes on a greater role (becoming almost an unofficial cast member); voicing several new characters in addition to Lionel Hutz and Troy McClure. Plus, more celebrities than ever before sign on for cameos, including Tom Jones, Barry White, Brooke Shields, Johnny Carson, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Hugh Hefner, Leonard Nimoy, Adam West, and Bob Hope. Hilariously entertaining, The Simpsons' fourth season solidifies the series as television's premier animated family sitcom.
