    Identify The Scene in Illegal Kyrgyzstan Stamps!

    Greetings Simpson Afficionados!

    We documented all the legal and illegal Simpson stamps here;
    http://www.snpp.com/guides/stamps.html

    But we haven't identified the episodes that were the source of the Kyrgyzstan stamps.
    I uploaded a larger image of them here:
    http://goo.gl/vNXjb
    (when that expires you can see them here:
    http://www.snpp.com/guides/stamps_il01.html)

    First person to identify the previously unidentified source episode for each stamp will be credited (if desired, and with whatever name or moniker you choose) and if you send me your address I'll gladly mail you a set of five cancelled Simpson stamps as a token of appreciation.

    Describe which stamp you're identifying! (BTW, I don't already know the answers!!)
    One guess per stamp per person please, and post your reply to this thread.

    Given the stamps are dated "2000" I doubt they are using an image from an episode first broadcast in 2005.

    The stamps in Sheet 2 aren't actually "taken" from episodes, they're from the 2001 Fun Calendar which recreated scenes from episodes (with the exception of Homer being dragged away while Ozmodiar laughs at him, which was used for "Smarch")

    Please identify the stamp you're identifying! (such as "stamp with Bart & Lisa" or "top left")

    One submission per stamp!

    Thanks!

    Stamp Contest: Second Winner!

    Whoa! Magnificent! Considering I'm somewhat of a Simpsons Calendar afficionado, and I've actually typed out a description of each page, that's almost embarrassing.

    We also have an illegal Mauritania stamp with an unknown episode source labelled "Bart in Prison"; same rules apply!

    While we're at it, how about the Congo stamps?

    Also wanted to note that Kyrgyzstan Sheet 2 Stamp 5 was previously incorrectly identified as Kamp Krusty is actually a scene recreated from Das Bus.

    Contested Expanded to Mauritania and Congo

    Just wanted to reiterate something buried in a previous post:

    We also have an illegal Mauritania stamp with an unknown episode source labelled "Bart in Prison"; same rules apply!
    http://www.snpp.com/guides/stamps_il02.html

    While we're at it, how about the illegal Congo stamps?
    http://www.snpp.com/guides/stamps_il04.html

    Anyone identifying stamps as indicated in the original post or correcting or significantly expanding information on these stamps is eligible!

    The "Bart is Prison" one is from the music video for the song "Deep, Deep Trouble". Although as Dark Homer said above, none of them are are actually 'from' the episodes, but just re-created scenes, again probably for a calendar.

    I think they're actually promos, not re-creations. But they are kind of that anyways...

    We have our third winner. With that lead I pulled out my descriptions of all the calendar pages, and then pulled the calendar itself, and sure enough, *every* stamp is actually taken from The Simpsons 2003 Fun Calendar.

    Simpsons Stamps Pages Now Updated! Thanks to All!

    The Simpsons Postage Stamps pages are now updated thanks to all the great leads.
    http://www.snpp.com/guides/stamps.html

    Specifically, Illegal Kyrgyzstan Stamps were all identified; first sheet was all scenes from [3F02] Bart Sells His Soul, and I've updated each stamp with the time signature that frame appears; the second sheet consists of cropped images from The Simpsons 2001 Fun Calendar, where I've updated it with the month it appeared on and the episode the scene was recreated for.
    http://www.snpp.com/guides/stamps_il01.html

    The Illegal Mauritania sheet consists entirely of cropped images from The Simpsons 2003 Fun Calendar, where I also identified the month and the episode the scene was recreated for.
    http://www.snpp.com/guides/stamps_il02.html

    The Illegal Congo sheet consists of cropped images from the German 2004 calendar, The Simpsons Spass Kalendar 2004, the German version of The Simpsons 2004 Fun Calendar. Two of the stamps have writing in German on them.
    http://www.snpp.com/guides/stamps_il04.html

    Of course, the moment I uploaded them I found some typos...

    Attempted to contact all winners for credit and an award, feel free to reach out to me!

    Lastly, open to suggestions for additional info; still searching for info on another Illegal Republic of Adygea sheet with a single Simpsons stamp on it, and amongst other things plan to add information on additional Simpsons First Day Cover cachets...
