I watch the Simpsons on my re-run channels all the time. I just pulled out some old tapes of the early seasons, from 4-8 and notice that the re-runs are edited! They take out some parts of jokes that make more sense when included. As an example, the Radioactive Man move episode, they leave out the entire bit the Krusty has to get a role in the film, sort of analogous to Sean Young trying to get a part in Batman Returns . There was also the Homer3 in one of the Treehouse horror shows where Prof. Frink explains the "cube concept" to everyone, and Lisa accidently hits a light switch. It changed the joke completely! So I for one am glad to finally get the full uncut episodes on DVD. Anyone else notice syndication omissions?
