    Season 3, as I find Season 4 very good but overrated and I overall prefer the storylines in Season 3

    So It's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show

    In the end, season 4 wins because of its excellent episodes, but it was a hard one, the two are one of the best seasons of the show. I like the surrealism of these two seasons mixed with the flashbacks in the scenes and some realism in other episodes.

    Both are excellent seasons but I prefer season 4 since I consider it the peak of the first half of the classic era.
    It has two of the greatest episodes ever. And to think Cape Feare was also produced for this one.

    I'm neutral. Both Season 3 and 4 are great, though Season 3 might just edge out 4 without the 2 holdover episodes.

    Season 4 was better for me, since season 3 to me had some weaker episodes in comparison like dog of death, which was done so much better in homer's triple bypass.

    This is a tough one since I find both just as great as the other one, but if I had to pick right now I'd say 4, due to it improving on an great and kinda underrated season (which is 3, of course) and having many great and funny classic episodes that are just so likeable. 4 is a lot goofier and cartoonish but not to a fault (I think 5 sometimes went a little too far in the sillier direction) but 4 struck a perfect balance between the outlandish & cartoonish and the dramatic & emotional, much like 6 later did.

    This was one tough decision to make, but I prefer season 4 to season 3.

    Season 3 contains some beautiful-paced and funny episodes that I consider all time classics and heartwarming episodes ("Lisa's Pony", "Bart The Lover", "I Married Marge", "Homer Alone", "Bart's Friend Falls In Love" and "Colonel Homer"), some really enjoyable episodes ("Radio Bart", "Bart The Murderer", "Treehouse Of Horror II" etc.) and some satirical ones ("Mr Lisa Goes To Washington", "Burns Verkaufen Der Kraftwerk" etc.)

    Season 4, however, contains some much stronger emotional episodes that deal with much more serious topics ("A Streetcar Named Marge", "Homer's Triple Bypass", "Lisa's First Word", "Selma's Choice" etc.), has some very funny episodes too ("Kamp Krusty", "Marge in Chains", "Treehouse Of Horror III" etc.) and some that do a great job satirising different topics ("Lisa The Beauty Queen", "Marge vs The Monorail" etc.).

    I have come to a decision: Season 4 has one less good episode but my least favorite ep of that season is not as bad as Season 3. So Season 4 it is.
