List of episodes that aired outside of the normal season run

Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki

This is a list of episodes that air outside of the normal season run, fall-late spring.

List[edit]

Episode Airdate Considered part of
"Blood Feud" July 11, 1991 Season 2
Fox held off "Blood Feud" to boost the ratings of the season two premiere of Beverly Hills 90210. Regardless, "Three Men and a Comic Book" remains the official season two finale, as originally advertised, and the network still considers "Blood Feud" a part of season two (as an encore episode).
"Brother, Can You Spare Two Dimes?" August 27, 1992 Season 3 (producers, syndicators, The Simpsons Archive and Simpsons World the Ultimate Episode Guide: Seasons 1-20.)
Season 4 (Fox)
"Brother, Can You Spare Two Dimes?" was originally scheduled for broadcast in Season 4. Fox however chose to run the episode prior, as a special summer original, to boost the series premiere of Martin. "Bart's Friend Falls in Love" remains the true Season 3 finale, with "Kamp Krusty" serving as the fourth season premiere. While "Brother, Can You Spare Two Dimes?" is still considered a part of season four by Fox, the producers and syndicators list it with season three.
"Lard of the Dance" August 23, 1998 Season 10
"Lard of the Dance" was originally scheduled for broadcast in the body of season ten. Fox, however, chose to run the episode prior, as a special summer original, to boost the series premier of That '70s Show. "Natural Born Kissers" remains the true Season 9 finale, with "The Wizard of Evergreen Terrace" serving as the official tenth season premiere. Despite this, "Lard of the Dance" remains a part of season ten.
