Matt Groening Says:
Howdily doodily, Simpsons Obsessives!

Welcome to Season 10 of those mischievous animated rascals, the Simpsons, on DVD and in color!

Highlights this time around include "Simpsons Bible Stories," with Homer and Marge au naturel as Adam and Eve, Milhouse whimpering to let his people go, and bart doing battle with Goliath II. Then there's the heartwarming episode "Viva Ned Flanders," based on several thousand true stories, in which Homer and Flanders go to Las Vegas, get drunk, and wake up married to a couple of floozies. And of course we mustn't forget "Treehouse Of Horror IX," in which Krusty the Clown says "Get ready for the violentest, disembowelingest, vomit-inducingest Itchy & Scratchy Halloween Special ever!"
