List of The Simpsons episodes

The 4th season of The Simpsons first started showing on television on September 24, 1992. The season started with the episode "Kamp Krusty". The season ended with the episode "Krusty Gets Kancelled" on May 13, 1993. The season was first released to DVD for Region 1 on June 15, 2004, Region 2 on August 2, 2004, and Region 4 on August 25, 2004.[1][2][3]

Many of the show's staff left after the season ended.[4] Jay Kogen, Wallace Wolodarsky, and Jeff Martin stopped writing episodes when the season ended. David M. Stern and Jon Vitti left, but they came back years later to write more episodes. Al Jean, Mike Reiss, and Rich Moore left to make The Critic. Jean and Reiss came back to The Simpsons around the 10th and 13th seasons.[5] Rich Moore came back to help with animation for The Simpsons Movie.[6] This was the first season to have animation done by Film Roman instead of Klasky Csupo.[7]

Dan Castellaneta won an Emmy Award for "Outstanding Voice-Over Performance". He won for his voice acting of Homer Simpson in the episode "Mr. Plow".[8]
