On 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment’s boxed set release of “The Simpsons: The Complete Third Season” the studio has once again hidden some bonus material, but this time a little better hidden than before. Fortunately you have us to show you how to access them.
First of all, the Main Menus on the four discs all have entertaining, randomized transitions. This means every time you go to a submenu from the Main Menu, you will have the chance to see a funny little couch gag.
Now, insert the first disc of the set and watch the episode “Stark Raving Dad.” Once the episode is running, use the “Audio” button on your remote control to switch to audio track 5 and voila, you will hear a cool commentary track.
On the second disc, view the episode “Lisa’s Pony” and once again use the “Audio” button on your remote to switch to track 5 to also hear a commentary for this episode.
Now insert disc 3 of the set and you can find commentary tracks in the same fashion when you run the episodes “Bart The Lover” and “Separate Vocations.”
Another Easter Egg can be found when you hit the numbers “84763” on the Main Menu of disc 3. This will allow you to listen to a few great audio outtakes.
And while we’re punching numbers, also try typing “742” on the Special Features menu of the fourth disc, and you will get to see one of 13 randomly selected sketches.
