It's hard to believe this series has been around for over a decade and that it's managed to remain as valid today as it was then. It's definitely aged well and even the most well-seasoned episodes can split your guts open at any given time. The second season was a particularly noticeable step up from the jumpier animation and the focus shifted slightly from the all-Bart season one to Homer, whose today become the rock on which the show rests. Doh...the man does rule!

American Music Awards 1991 (2 mins.): This was actually pretty weird. It's a costumed Nancy Cartwright as Bart Simpson and some douchebag presenting MC Hammer with an AMA but it looks like no one really knows what's going on. It all becomes clear though when you listen to creator Matt Groening explain it on the optional commentary. Frightening.
"Deep deep trouble" and "Do the Bartman" music video (10 mins.): These are actually a bit dated. Released at the time when the Simpsons album was released, it was the kind of stuff reserved for my cousin Ed. He's the only person I know who actually owned it aside from quizmaster Indiana Sev. They're both available with optional commentaries.
"Butterfinger" TV commercials (2 mins.): Three quick and pretty nostalgic Butterfinger ads featuring Bart in situations leading up to him saying that "nobody better lay a finger on his Butterfinger". Pretty cool stuff, especially since one of them involves Nelson Muntz.
David Silverman on "The creation of an episode (6 mins.): This is a pretty interesting clip in which senior director Silverman very briefly explains the different stages of an episode production. It takes between 5 & 7 months for an episode to be fully completed, so there's definitely a hell of a lot more work behind it than you see in this short clip, but it's cool to listen to.
Emmy Awards Presentation (3 mins.): This is a pretty funny clip from the 1990 Emmy Awards in which the entire animated Simpson Family present some loser with an award. Bart misbehaves, Homer strangles him, Lisa makes a plea for some weird cause, Marge is conservative and a good time is had by all. Doh! I forgot to tell you: the loser in question is none other than the unfunny Ted Danson.
Interview with Creator/Executive Producer Matt Groening and Executive Producer James L. Brooks (10 mins.): I'd never before known what Groening looked like and I didn't really know he sounded like a live Homer Simpson but here he was. The Interview features both dudes waxing poetic about many things Simpson, basically the creation of the family and the team behind it. It actually became a bit boring after a while. Pretty weird from two guys who create such a funny show.
The Art of the Simpsons: Picture galleries featuring four different topics: two episode storyboards, some early sketches and drawings as well as a bunch of magazine covers featuring Simpsons characters. Pretty cool but that elusive nude shot of Maude Flanders was nowhere to be found.
Foreign Language clips (8 mins.): This was a really cool addition. It features a short scene in 5 different languages, namely French, German, Hungarian, Portuguese and Spanish. I watched the German one in particular over and over. I just never pictured Germans as being funny, but I guess it's different when Bart speaks their language.
