Fox’s long-running animated sitcom, The Simpsons, has seen its share of amazing, truly wonderful episodes. But lurking below those high points are also some horrendous misfires, misbegotten episodes that are just downright awful and unfunny.
After picking out the absolute best episodes of The Simpsons, the obvious next step was to figure out the worst of the worst, so here we are. Just one ground rule here: We decided to omit clip shows. I get it. They suck. But those episodes aren’t really episodes, just hodgepodges of previous ones put together to appease the network. So I don’t think they deserve to be singled out here. But everything else is fair game.
With all that said, here’s our list of the 10 worst episodes of The Simpsons in no particular order. Get ready for some garbage.
