Marge Simpson

Marge Simpson is a happy homemaker and lovely mother of three. Her prides and joys are Bart (her "special little guy"), Lisa and Maggie (Her 3 children). She's also very proud of her husband, Homer, even though he frequently loses his keys and needs her to find them. Marge also has strong relationships with her sisters, Patty and Selma, and with her father-in-law, Abe Simpson. But she also has secrets: She has been tempted to stray from her husband by a charming bowler and was nearly seduced into a life of crime by her one-time neighbor, Ruth Powers. Aside from her duties at home, Marge has flirted briefly with a number of careers ranging from police officer to an anti-violence activist.

    The Simpsons - The Complete Seasons 1-3

    In this collection of the first 59 episodes of "The Simpsons" (13 on Season 1, 22 on Season 2, and 24 on Season 3), you get every episode the way it was meant to be seen: with no commercials and slower-running credits. Each episode is about 23 minutes and five seconds long, so you will be kept busy for a while, even if you're a long-time die-hard fan or a newly-converted Simpsaniac (like myself). Now, with new extras like scripts, commentaries by creator Matt Groening, audio outtakes, and the BBCTV documentary "The Simpsons: America's First Family," this collection is the ultimate gift for any Simpson fan.

    The Homer Book : The Simpsons Library of Wisdom

    This slim little volume features everything you'd ever want to know about one of your favorite Simpsons characters, Homer. The book opens with a timeline reviewing all the significant milestones in Homer's life, from his childhood antics with friend Barney to many of the family trials which have been chronicled on the show. The various "Homer's Haunts" sections describe in detail some of Homer's most-visited sites, including the nuclear power plant and (of course) Mo's. Also featured are significant people in Homer's life, from his workplace friends and enemies to the people who have almost ruined his marriage (eg, Jacques, Mindy). You'll also get a review of his many, many jobs as well as countless food-related references (including "Things That Sound Like Food but Aren't"). Finally, the book begins and ends with Homer's Top 40 and his Bottom 40, respectively. A great stocking stuffer for any die-hard Simpsons fan!

    The Simpsons: Hit and Run

    This game is so much fun and addicting. It's like watching episodes of the series. I have to admit, though, there are times where you get tired of trying to find every single item on the map, but, you are rewarded. I like that you can go back to an early level if you missed something and just wanted to move on. Very nice. Characters are great, voices wonderful, graphics very nice, everything in this game is wonderful. And I thought Road Rage was one to beat!! My suggestion is that if you are a true Simpsons fan, you'll like this game, if you are a gamer who is into driving or adventure, well, it may not satisfy your taste. Note: Driving your cars are much more difficult in this version than in Road Rage. Frustrating at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's better.

    The Bart Book : The Simpsons Library of Wisdom

    This slim little volume features everything you'd ever want to know about one of your favorite Simpsons characters, Bart. The book opens with a timeline reviewing all the significant milestones in Bart's life. The various "Bart Zones" sections describe in detail some of Bart's most-visited sites, including the school cafeteria and his tree house. Also featured are significant people in Bart's life, from his school friends and enemies to the girls who have stolen his heart. Of course, a book without Bart wouldn't be complete without some mischievousness, so you'll also get some ideas for making prank telephone calls as well as suggestions for Bart's "Dream Tattoos." Finally, the book begins and ends with Bart's Top 40 and his Bottom 40, respectively. A great stocking stuffer for any die-hard Simpsons fan!

    Bart Simpson's Guide to Life

    I thought this book was really good. It was a book you can read over and over again because it gets better every time. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys watching the Simpsons. It is jam packed with loads of imformation with Barts humour added into it. It has things like Bart and Lisa's ideal bedrooms and what is better- heaven or hell!. It really made me laugh and I love reading it.
