edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for The Simpsons:
  • Music section is missing reference to "The Yellow Album,' a compilation of non-TV show songs.
  • Perhaps add information about the direction.
  • Perhaps add information about music on the show.
  • The final sentence of the opening paragraph reads as if it breaks the flow of the rest of the structured content. It should probably be moved to the "declining quality" section.

Futurama crossover is as important as the Family Guy crossover[edit]

If the Family Guy Crossover episode is given so much importance, I think we should give the same importance to the crossover with Futurama, specially because that show was also created by Matt Groening.

"It's the 20th Century Fox debut in animation."[edit]

Regarding this sentence in the introductory paragraph, I don't consider it appropriate to use contractions in this context and feel it would be better changed to 'It is 20th Century Fox's animation debut.' I'd make this change myself but can't because the article is semi-protected. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:36, 24 August 2016 (UTC)


For as long and meandering as the wiki entry is, why have seasoning rankings (not ratings) been rather blatantly left out? It would be nice to see these added. I would like to know them at least. Perhaps someone could add? Ckorr2003 (talk) 05:46, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 29 September 2016[edit]

On the paragraph where the guy suggested Springfield might be on Australia, I would suggest adding that Matthew Patrick of Youtube's Game Theory suggests that, based on diverse clues sprinkled throughout the show, it's extremely possible that Springfield may be located in the state of Oregon.

Not done: as you have not made a specific request in the form "Please replace XX with YY" or "Please add ZZ between PP and QQ".
More importantly, you have not cited reliable sources to back up your request, without which no information should be added to, or changed in, any article. - Arjayay (talk) 11:26, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Include in "Decline" section or addition to a new episode "Ratings" section[edit]

I created a graphic to support the decline section. I think it emphasizes the shift in quality well. I am open to suggestions to improve the figure if the community thinks it is worth posting.

I can't seem to upload the figure, but the figure is explained in more depth at '' and preceding posts.

A ranking of every Simpsons episode based on the percentage of shows their IMDB rating was better than [1].
