Simpsons s1

Alternate boxart

"The Complete First Season" was released on September 25, 2001 in North America, and September 24, 2001 in the United Kingdom and Ireland. It contains all 13 episodes from the first season, remastered in Dolby Digital 5.1. Although the video quality is generally of a high standard, it is from a broadcast tape and not an original film print, as the show was edited on video. For a list of boxsets, see List of The Simpsons boxsets.

The outer packaging is of the family sitting on the couch with Santa's Little Helper and Snowball II sitting upright with them (used a couple of times in Season 1), whereas the inner packaging and the discs feature the family spinning in a vortex. The spine features Bart and Lisa on the outer casing, and Homer, Marge and Maggie on the inner casing.

The Complete Second Season


  • "Bart the General": The opening shots of the house to the open view is missing some of the opening credits. (The original credits remain intact on the Amazon and iTunes releases of this episode.)
  • "The Telltale Head": The most notable edit comes from this episode, which removed a part of Bart's speech to the mob about "taking the town's heritage for granted". (See the references of this episode for more information.)


  • The Region 2 box art has The Simpsons' logo written in yellow rather than the red of Region 1. The spine also features the whole bodies of Bart and Lisa rather than just their heads.
  • The episodes "There's No Disgrace Like Home" and "Krusty Gets Busted" feature the original 20th Century Fox Television logo when the episodes originally aired, while the others have the 1989 20th Television logo.
  • In Region 1 on the outside case, it just shows Lisa's and Bart's heads. But on Region 2, It has their whole bodies.
  • In Region 2, "Moaning Lisa" is on Discs 2 and 3.
