By its fourth series, The Simpsons had come far enough for
Lisa to make a self-referential joke about Dustin Hoffman's and Michael
Jackson's pseudonymous guest voice appearances in series 2 and 3, respectively.
In this series, no less than Elizabeth Taylor (in two episodes), Bette Midler
and even the reclusive Johnny Carson blessed The Simpsons with their iconic
presences. Awhile back, US magazine Entertainment Weekly ranked the top 25
Simpsons episodes. Five gems from series 4 cracked the top 12, including the
(debatable) choice for No. 1, "Last Exit to Springfield". Other
episodes that loom large in the Simpsons legend are "Mr Plow" (you
know the jingle: "Call Mr Plow / That's my name / That name again is Mr
Plow"), "Marge vs. the Monorail", featuring a Music-Man-style
extravaganza, and "A Streetcar Named Marge", the episode that
outraged New Orleans residents, who heard their fair metropolis referred to as
"a city that the damned call home".
