Titles and Descriptions

By

President Lisa Simpson

"Bart to the Future"

Twentieth Century Fox

Season 11 of The Simpsons aired during the 1999 - 2000 season.

Beyond Blunderdome
Mel Gibson brings the Simpsons to Hollywood so Homer can help "tweak" his new film after Homer's is the sole negative voice at a test screening. First tweak: add action, and lots of it.

Brother's Little Helper
A drug for Attention Deficit Disorder makes Bart studious, productive - and paranoid about satellites spying on him. Mark McGwire has a cameo.

Guess Who's Coming to Criticize Dinner?
With Lisa's help, Homer becomes the food critic for the Springfield Shopper, but fellow critics criticize his always-positive reviews, prompting a radical change - and revenge by restaurateurs.

Treehouse of Horror X
In "Life's A Glitch, Then You Die," Homer causes a Y2K catastrophe. In "Desperately Xeeking Xena," superheroes Lisa and Bart save actress Lucy Lawless. In "I Know What You Diddily-Iddily Did," Marge runs over Flanders, but he doesn't die. Homer tries to cover it up.

E-I-E-I-(ANNOYED GRUNT)
To avoid a duel, Homer moves the Simpsons to Grandpa's old farm, and grows a profitable, but dangerous, hybrid crop.

Hello Gutter, Hello Fadder
Homer bowls a perfect game, but celebrity goes to his head. Cameos by Ron Howard, Penn and Teller, and entertainment reporters Nancy O'Dell and Pat O'Brien.

Eight Misbehavin'
Feeling more stressed than blessed after the birth of their octuplets, Apu and Manjula get child-care help in a deal they come to regret.

Take My Wife, Sleaze
John Goodman and Henry Winkler guest star as bikers who protest when Homer takes their gang name for his own after winning a Harley. Jay North ("Dennis the Menace") has a voice cameo.

"This episode started out okay (Homer's bike gang, with Ned's "motorbike") but after the real Hell's Satans take over the Simpsons' house, it gets real old real fast. The ending was pretty senseless too. Another disappointment." - James Sickler, Fan Review

Grift of the Magi
Bankrupt Springfield Elementary is taken over by a private outfit whose members' real goal is to mine the kids' minds for toy ideas. Voices include Tim Robbins and Gary Coleman.

"A pretty good episode. Lots of gags, not that much of a stupid plot. Also, no emphasis on Homer was good. Some stupid stuff like Gary Coleman's fight with the robot, but otherwise good. Overall a B." - Wilson Banswell, Fan Review

Little Big Mom
With Marge laid up by a skiing (lodge) accident, Lisa tries to run the house and plays a trick on Homer and Bart to get them to help clean.

Faith Off
After Bart's successful laying on of hands at a revival meeting, a preacher declares Bart has "the power." So the boy pitches his own tent.

The Mansion Family
While housesitting for Burns (who's getting a checkup at the Mayo Clinic), Homer throws a party aboard the billionaire's yacht in international waters - where anything goes. Britney Spears is a guest voice.

Saddlesore Galactica
At the state fair, Lisa feels robbed at the band competition, and the family acquires a horse that becomes a winner after an attitude adjustment.

"The whole thing was a terrible mess. Nobody was in character, the jokes were pathetic and overly wacky, there was no satire, and the whole plot just had no flow (if you can call it plot). Homer's pearl dream wasn't even funny, it was pathetic. He eats pearls and then laughs like a maniac. What the hell is funny about that? Compared to his Land of Chocolate Dream and other classics from the golden ages (Seasons 1 - 8) this was pathetic, and just lazy writing. The wackiness was just too much: Moe's heart shaped heart! A mop that eats things! An underground land of Jockey Elves! What the hell were the writers smoking when they thought up this tripe!?!" - Kenneth White, Fan Review

Alone Again, Natura-Diddly
Homer tries to help a grieving Springfieldian after an accident at the new auto-racing venue has fatal consequences.

Missionary: Impossible
Homer becomes a South Seas missionary to escape an angry PBS mob that includes Betty White, who wants to collect his pledge of $10,000.

Pygmoelian
Moe wins Duff's "beer-tending" contest but loses out on making their calendar. So he undergoes plastic surgery and lands a soap-opera role that he missed years before.

Bart to the Future
A mystic shows Bart his future as a ne'er-do-well musician rooming with Ralph Wiggum - and brother to President Lisa Simpson, who inherits a fiscal crisis that Bart makes worse.

Days of Wine and D'oh'ses
Barney quits drinking to take helicopter-flying lessons, leaving Homer feeling resentful and inferior; Lisa and Bart enter a contest to photograph the cover of the Springfield phone book.

Kill the Alligator and Run
The family seeks a restful vacation in Florida, but arrives during spring break, which Homer extends. Guest voices include Charlie Rose, Kid Rock and Joe C.

Last Tap Dance in Springfield
Lisa struggles in a tap-dance class taught by a former child star; Bart and Milhouse ditch camp to spend a week creating havoc in the mall.

It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Marge
Otto's girlfriend (Parker Posey) seems to be usurping Marge's role when she moves in with the family after a dispute over heavy metal.

Behind the Laughter
A "Behind the Music"-style look at the Simpsons, narrated by VH1's Jim Forbes, shows their rise to stardom - and the "private hell" that followed. Willie Nelson has a cameo.

"I really thought this was an awesome way to end the season and the best of Season 11. I always wanted them to do a parody of 'Behind The Music'. I really liked the way they did the parody of the show -- the corny metaphors, the way the Simpsons are depicted, and the host, Jim Forbes, who they actually used as narrator. I never stopped laughing throughout the episode and moments that already passed which are truly funny!" - Faiza Mokhtar, Fan Review
