Trivia

Mrs. Krabappel tells the class to remember the story of the boy who stuck his hand out of the window and had his arm ripped off by a truck going the other way. This could possibly be Herman, as he mentions that if Bart's teacher ever says not to stick his hand out of the window, he'd better not do it. See more »

Goofs

Herman misspelled "Kwik-E-Mart" as "Quick-E-Mart" on his map of Springfield. See more »

A Classic Simpsons Episode!
17 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fifth episode in the long-running Simpsons series is very funny and quite well-done. With me being such a movie buff, I loved the movie references such as Patton and of course, Full Metal Jacket. The episode had me laughing almost non-stop the entire time and the episode is way better than the previous 2 episodes and on par with the first two of Season One.

This episode, "Bart the General" formerly introduces us to Grampa, the school bully Nelson, and Bart's best friend. While sticking up for Lisa, Bart gets into a few altercations with Nelson. In order to stop the bullying, Bart asks Grampa for help so he can end the bullying for good.

Overall, this is a very funny episode and the many references to Full Metal Jacket is outstanding especially during the training scenes. Bart is indeed one heck of a general. I rate this film 9/10.
