I just received “The Simpsons: The Complete Twelfth Season” on DVD and was excited to review it! Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment released this new season on DVD on August 18th! It’s hilarious watching Marge, Homer, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie in their twelfth season. I enjoyed watching it, but would not watch it with our 5 year old, 3 year old, or 1 year old. It is funny for the adults though! You won’t want to miss the Emmy Award Winning Comedy which is available in Collectible Packaging Featuring Springfield’s Favorite Critic – Comic Book Guy.

“The Simpsons” is the longest running animated series in television history. The latest DVD collection features all 21 classic episodes from the 2000-2001 season including Bart’s boy band odyssey in “New Kids on the Blecch” featuring pop sensations N’Sync and a “hilarious less-than-ordinary day for Homer, Bart, and Lisa in ‘Trilogy of Error.'” You’ll also enjoy guest stars including Drew Barrymore, Edward Norton, Justin Timberlake, Stephen King, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Roger Daltry, and many more!

You’ll also enjoy the tons of special features available in “The Simpsons: The Complete Twelfth Season” including an introduction from Matt Groening; audio commentaries on every episode with Groening and “The Simpsons” Executive Producers, Writers, Actors, and Directors; deleted scenes; animation showcases; original sketches; special language feature; featurettes and more. As an added bonus, the set comes in collectible packaging modeled after the overweight and over opinionated retailer Comic Book Guy!
