Trivia

This episode was originally titled "A Period Piece". But the FOX Network censors thought that women would be offended by the title, even though the episode was written by two women and the series' episode titles never appeared on screen. The censors asked the writers to retitle the script so the writers just named it "The Camping Show". See more »

One of the most controversial episodes of the series!
28 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This camping episode does deliver because it's funny, raunchy, and classic. It would be tame by today's standards. When the Bundys and Rhoades go on a five day camping trip in the woods, they take Kelly and Bud. Kelly is having her time of the month. Al, Steve, and Bud go fishing when the unthinkable happens. Peggy and Marcy join Kelly in having their time of the month which all makes for an unpleasant experience. While the cabin has no food for the moment, the animals sense women's cycles and are attracted to the cabin. A bear ruins Steve's car and traps the men together with the unbearable women. This episode was controversial then and now it is tame because the times have changed radically since this episode first premiered on television.
