Best Simpsons eps courtesy of Conan


Conan O’Brien turned 50 recently and to celebrate, we decided to take a look back at his best contributions as a writer during the golden age of The Simpsons. Enjoy.

O’Brien is now more famous as a late-night TV talk-show host, of course, but he will always be remembered for his contributions as a writer for The Simpsons during two seasons of what was undoubtedly a golden age for the animated TV show in the early nineties.

O’Brien was hired as a writer for the show in 1991 and worked on it until 1993, when he replaced David Letterman as the host of a new late night chat show, which would come to be called Late Night with Conan O’Brien and ran until 2009.

O’Brien was chief writer on a number of episodes in season four and season five and below are our favourite episodes from that era, the last of which ‘Bart Gets Famous’, included a cameo appearance from O’Brien after he had left.

Happy birthday Conan and thanks for the memories.

1) Marge vs The Monorail (written by Mr. O'Brien)
‘I’ve sold monorails to Brockway, Ogdenville and North Haverbrook and by gum, it put them on the map.’

Btw it really shows Conan's love for "The Music Man". He would also go on to perform a similar-sounding number during the Emmy's. He was actually offered the role of Harold Hill for the revival but he had to do Late Night.

2) Homer Goes to College (written by Mr. O'Brien)

3) New Kid on the Block (Written by O’Brien and featuring the Sea Captain, a character reportedly created by O’Brien… Yarr)
‘Does this look like a man who had ALL he can eat?’

4) Treehouse of Horror IV (Wraparounds by O’Brien)
'Mmmm… forbidden donut'

5) Whacking Day
‘And now, to open this year’s festivities, here’s our Grand Marshall, the prophet of love, Larry White.’
‘It’s Barry White’.
‘No, it says here, Larry White.'
‘I know my own name.’
‘Yeah, well we’ll see’.

Also, Conan recently hosted a Simpsons writers reunion, which can be watched here.
