Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire; Yawn!

Ohhhh boy, the first season of The Simpsons. This is a rollercoaster of a season. From boring episodes that you have seen too many times to the drab storylines, this one really is thrilling. Ok, I’ll stop being an a******. I love the Simpsons but this season could have been any other series’s starting place, outside of a few select hilariously classic episodes like Call of the Simpsons. Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire is not one of those hilariously classic episodes.

Simpsons Roasting on an Open fire is a strange starting place for The Simpsons, as would it be for any series. Can you name another overwhelmingly successful show that started as a f****** Christmas special? Take your time on that one. But hey this episode has its moments.

So, the episode starts off with a dumb talent show at the school with Homer and Marge showing up late, yawn. This could have been any other family in America at the time. A bunch of boring stuff happens then Bart gets a tattoo while Homer gets laid off from his job. Marge, being the great mother she is, decides to spend the family’s savings on removing a tattoo of Bart’s that was purely in honor of his Mother. So now the family is broke and Homer needs to hide the fact that he no longer has a place of employment to call a job. Even at this point in the show, you can tell that Homer and Bart would end up being the stars of the show and Marge and Lisa would be supporting characters.

As the show progresses, Homer eventually becomes a rent-a-santa to make some cash for Christmas. Bart outs him as Santa in front of all the children, then Homer gets paid enough to bet all of their money on a dog race, losing but ending up with an important plot device from one of the funniest episodes of season 8, the family dog, Santos El Halper, I mean Santa’s Little Helper.

This is a very average episode that thankfully unravled into the quality show it would end up being for the greater part of a decade. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate this episode, it is just aged and dated horribly. This is not a timeless nor a classic, nor is it anywhere near being the first episode anyone claims to be their most cherished or opinioned as the best episode ever.

Douche Loder’s Final Word:

I love the Simpsons, I even love the shitty seasons, This episode has been a favorite or classic in my opinion. It, however, is a place my favorite show of all time started from and that’s all it needs to be known as.


  • Besides Tracy Ulman, this is the most important day in the history of The Simpsons
  • It gets better
  • Santa’s Little Helper


  • Lazy, sooooo lazy
  • Could have been literally any other show’s first episode
  • It’s a damn Christmas Episode
