Just stumbled across this Top 20 Simpsons moments on the Guardian website.
What a tough call!
I'm always surprised when people say they don't love The Simpsons. Some people just don't watch it. That's odd. Some just don't like it. Now to me that shows a lack of intelligence! At it's best The Simpsons manages to surpass pretty much any cartoon, sitcom, TV show, film or musical I've ever seen. To combine such comedy (high and low brow) and pathos in the confines of a half-hour cartoon is incredible. Very few shows have even come close - and certainly not for such a sustained run.
As for my fave moments, I have to agree that any time Maggie puts on her snowsuit is a gem. I also love to see Homer having to win back Marge...Marge singing You are so beautiful to me...Natural Born Kissers is a belter (when Marge and Homer decide to spice up their lovelife)...the bizarre Johnny Cash cameo (which I first saw dubbed into Spanish and had to wait years to find out what it all meant!)...there's just so many.
I could also do a whole Top 20 of favourite Ralph Wiggum moments. Best soundbites are probably "I bent my wookie" and "I ated the purple berries..."
