The Impossible Simpsons Quiz: Seasons 1 - 8

Updated on December 20, 2013

When creating this article I thought I'd create the hardest The Simpsons quiz that only the most diehard of fans (like myself) could get a perfect score on. I've completed many other quizzes online that purported to be impossible--and they were!--but for all the wrong reasons. Questions I've come across before have been so esoteric as to almost be an affront to trivia buffs. One question I remember particularly went like this:

"According to this, you're both idiots."
"According to this, you're both idiots."

In the episode 'Bart vs. Thanksgiving' how much money was Bart paid for his blood donation?

A) $10

B) $11

C) $12 <-- Correct Answer

D) $13

But, ah, so what? If the monetary amount had some significance to the storyline I could see including it on the quiz. However, some questions just feel hard for the sake of being hard. If you just watched the episode and still can't answer the question then it's not a very good judge of your trivial knowledge. I know my quiz uses numbers as well, but hopefully they won't feel as contrived or pointless. Still, my point stands that quizzes ought to measure a person's trivia, not their ability to memorize numbers.

"The sum of the square roots of the two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the opposing side."
"The sum of the square roots of the two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the opposing side."

I tried to make a quiz that went from seasons 1-8 but Hubpages prefers quizzes to be a little shorter than I had originally envisioned. Therefore the quiz will actually be broken down into two 25 question mini-quizzes. Another reason for doing this is because I felt like I may have gone a little 'too easy' on the first half (Seasons 1-4) of the quiz. So this way I can work on a second quiz for Seasons 5-8 and still ensure that it is of impossible quality. This of course means that it will be harder than the first half, though not by that much--so if you do fine on the first half still consider yourself very versed in Simpsons knowledge. Er, but if you don't do well.. you may not want to take the second quiz!

"NERRRRRDDDDDD!!!"

So how'd you do? If you got above an 80% you can probably pat yourself on the back. Though I wouldn't give yourself a huge pat if you merely got 80-99% because you should already be trying to figure out which questions you got wrong so you can retake it! And if you got 100% well, then.. I guess you're the most trivial person there is (other than me).

Now, that quiz was difficult. But compared to the next quiz that focuses on Seasons 5-8 the last quiz was merely wading in the shallow end of the pool. This next quiz separates the girls from the women, the boys from the men, and the babies from the baby geniuses. So if you think you're up for the challenge go ahead and take the IMPOSSIBLE Simpsons quiz!

So how'd you do this time? Was this quiz a little harder or did you find it laughably easy and now wish to complain in the comments about how it totally wasn't impossible and that you got a 100%? I'll of course need a screen-cap as proof though! Either way I hope these quizzes were a pleasant stroll down memory lane as we looked at the golden years of The Simpsons. If you have any comments about the quiz or the answers please write them below as well so I can ensure the best quiz-taking experience for everyone.

Now I would like to leave you with some wise words that my cartoon father once told me: "The three little sentences that will get you through life. Number 1: 'Cover for me'. Number 2: 'Oh, good idea, Boss!' Number 3: 'It was like that when I got here.'" Wise words from a truly wise man.
