    "Raging Abe Simpson and his Grumbling Grandson in "The Curse of the Flying Hellfish" gets my vote, though I'm almost certain "22 Short Films About Springfield" will take the prize. "Hellfish" is just a stronger ep because it's got real story and excitement. I love "22 Short Films", but not consistently. I liked some of the stories better than others, whereas "Hellfish" is solidly written, all the way through.

    This is a pretty tough decision but I'll have to go with "Summer of 4 Foot 2"; one of the best Lisa episodes of all time, not to mention it's probably the best vacation-related episode as well.

    I voted for 22 Shorts Films, just like everyone else will. To tell the truth, if that episode wouldn't have been in this poll, I wouldn't have voted because all of these episodes are so great.

    This was the toughest decision to date, but I went with Bart On The Road, I love that episode. Season 7 should have about 5-6 episodes in the finals, because there are plenty that can be # 1.

    Hmm season 7 sure had a heck of a lot of great stories although one thing about them all is that they all seemed to have the same amount of humor content so i cast my vote for The Flying Hellfish, its gotta be one of the most original episodes that the simpsons writers have come up with in the years and abe simpson kicking ass why not

    I chose "Summer of 4'2" " because it was the LAST truly classic Simpsons episode which had true human empathy for its characters. Yes, there's been funnier since then, but "Summer..." marked the end of the "character first" mentality of the first seven seasons.

    Well, ya'know if you stay positive and forget about trivial things like "proper characterization," "Satire," and "emotional depth" watching new Simpsons episodes can be a seemingly enjoyable lie.

    I tried watching a new episode the Simpsons, but I realized the show hit a new low, like a brand new, underground parking structure of sadness.

    "The Summer of 4 Ft. 2" is one of my all-time favorites, perhaps the best Lisa episode ever.

    hmm tough choice.. but i'll go for "The Curse of the Flying Hellfish"
    Everytime i see burns disguised as Marge, i can't stop laughing

    My second choice would probably be "Team homer".

    I had no doubt that the episode I voted for "22 Short Films about Springfield" would sweep the board(no pun intended) on this pool.

    I also really like "Marge Be Not Proud", "Bart On the Road" and "Hellfish".

    Definately "22 Short Films About Springfield". It's in my top 5 of greatest episodes ever. It has great parodies, uses tons of characters, and is funny every time you watch it.

    C'mon guys! Don't you realize the value of Bart On The Road?! It was a fantastic episode. Yes, 22 Short Films.. was good, but c'mon, BART ON THE ROAD!! It had a beautiful story and the kids were completely on their own. Let's atleast get this episode in the semi's!!

    Yeah, I can't believe I'm only the second one to vote for Bart on the Road! That was actually the first episode I ever saw, and it got me hooked. I still laugh my ass off whenever I see the Al Gore doll: "You are hearing me talk."

    Thanks Robbie, it's nice to know that someone agrees with me. If BOTR can beat Summer of 4ft.2, we can get into the semi's.

    Again, I hafta say I could have voted for Marge Be Not Proud ( a fav of mine) or Summer of 4ft2 (another fav of mine) but i belive Bart is really the best

    Wow.....what a list. Lots of classics.

    I was going to vote 22 Short Stories, but then something stopped me....Summer of 4 ft 2. I remembered what a truly touching episode it was, and how well I was able to relate to Lisa's character in some ways. And then I remembered how damn funny it was as well. Milhouse's antics, "he talks like people do!",the great satire on "being cool"...everything was so damn good...that I think I may have to vote for it instead.

    Although I liked nearly all of these episodes, I voted for a Fish called Selma. I simply loved this episode, the Planet of the Apes musical, the scene in the restaurant, "I ordered a Zima, not emphyzema (sp?)", and basically just because it was an entire episode with Troy McClure, and who can forget the line by Homer to Troy, "What is a guy like you doing with a guy like Selma?" Though I must say Hellfish and 22 short films were really close.
