The Simpsons Season 7 Episodes

25 Episodes 1995 - 1996

Season 7 contains a number of fascinating, experimental episodes that find the creative staff trying to break new ground. "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular" has fictional C-list actor Troy McClure (voice of Phil Hartman) giving viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the show. "Treehouse of Horror VI" contains a segment where Homer gets trapped in an alternate dimension, which is depicted via CG animation. And "22 Short Films About Springfield" is a series of vignettes focusing on the show's minor characters, including quack doctor Nick Riviera and local hayseed Cletus. There's still room, of course, for a number of straightforward stories about the Simpsons family (or at least, as straightforward as a show this surreal gets), such as Bart's attempt to get cast in a blockbuster movie based on the comic-book character Radioactive Man.
