the fool monty for destroying burns character
Simpsons Safari: long drawn-out plot featuring a gold giraffe inside a box of animal crackers.
The worst thing about it was that it had such great potential, but it failed on pretty much all fronts.
That's the one where Lisa takes the bus to the museum, right? Indeed great episode, but I don't see Homer doing any extremely impulsive stuff in there. Explain, please?
Edit: maybe apart frome breaking in to the museum though. But that was sweet, shows he cares about Lisa.
He explained that "stupid risks are what make life worth living" after he took a risk by getting the cherry picker to find Lisa as well. Homer's impulsiveness was handled far better in Lost Our Lisa, as you said. Shame they took a similar idea and turned it into trash the following year.
I'd have to go with either "The Great Louse Detective" for misusing/ruining two great characters, Little Big Girl, for the cringe-inducing plot, or The Strong Arms of the Ma for cringe-inducing lines. There is no reason for Grimey to have a son. "He liked hookers" is not an excuse, it's a disgrace. I liked the B-plot in Little Big Girl, with the Hitachi Indians, but the A-plot, with Bart thinking he got a girl pregnant is just unbelievably awful. Finally, The Strong Arms of the Ma had what is probably my least favorite line from the Simpsons ever. "Maggie fudged her Huggies". That whole sequence is not funny, and just awful. The Simpsons are better than that.
A somewhat tough choice for me, but right now I'd say 'The Greatest Story Ever D'ohed'; it was just lame, unfunny, too random towards the end (everyone suddenly believing they are the Messiah or whatever is just "what?") and the guest star-voiced character was really poor (oh, and Bart getting kicked in the groin repeatedly is not how you do a funny gag).
My least favourite will always forever be Alone Again Natura-Diddily. No episode, even from the slew of Zombie Simpson seasons, comes close to the terribleness that is this episode. I've explained myself before, but it's just offensive and unfunny (and offensively unfunny), a complete betrayal of the Flanders as characters, and the episode is basically a big 'fuck you' to Maggie Rosswell for leaving the show (they basically admit that on the DVD commentary).
Just because Flanders and his family are secondary characters doesn't mean Maude's death should be treated as a complete joke. The half-assed attempt they do to try and give this episode any emotional resonance is pathetic, and it doesn't even last any longer than one scene.
Newer episodes disappoint me, but Alone Again [...] just pisses me the hell off.
I only have 2 episodes I hate:
Simpsons Tall Tales: The jokes are terrible, except for the third act. "Horse Testicles?" What were they thinking?
Bart's Inner Child: I like the very beginning (YOU KEEP ON DRIVING!) and the end (McGonagle). The rest is very bland and uninspired.
my least favorite episode is a cliche, but Greatest Story Ever D'ohed.
though to be fair, i rewatched it a while ago and it didn't seem as bad as it originally did. still awful though
Simpson Safari. I don't think I have to explain the disappointment I feel when I watch a dumbed-down episode trying again and again to be funny and smart and failing every time because unfortunately the writers didn't want to share their crack with me.

The Frying game for being a disjointed mess that can't make up it's mind up of what the plot is. Feels like a anthology or several different stories badly rewritten to be an entire story.
Kill the alligator and run. Sloppy writing, stupid jokes, uninteresting celebrity cameos and just overall boring to watch. I will admit the beginning with Homer's nervous breakdown is mildly amusing but as soon as the spring break part of the plot kicks in it all goes to hell.
A standard answer, but another vote for 'The Greatest Story Ever D'ohed'. It's painfully unfunny, the guest star character is annoying, the episode drags a lot, and has a stupid ending. It's just poor in every aspect.
Poochie needs to be louder, angrier, and have access to a time machine
There are so many post-classics that have it much worse than 'Bart's Inner Child', in terms of pacing and plot progression - most of them 'new Simpsons' episodes. 'Bart's Inner Child' is probably one of Season 5's weakest, and is quite a bland episode, but I don't see how dullness and blandness alone are enough to make it the worst episode. In my opinion, the worst episodes ever need a mixture of a stupid plot, weak humour and bad characterisations - none of these apply to 'Bart's Inner Child', to be honest.
Another Simpsons Clip Show for me but if that doesn't count probably Dish Upon a Star at the moment, aka The Homer and Friends Wacky Time Show.
They think Gil is a little more popular than he actually is... they practically fawn over him on the commentaries whenever he has a scene.
