Bart and Lisa get their wish to spend the summer at Kamp Krusty
4 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the opener for season 4. This season has a lot of wonderful episodes. It's one of the strongest seasons throughout the entire series. This season opener definitely doesn't disappoint.

The premise of the episode is that Bart and Lisa go to Kamp Krusty. Kamp Krusty just wasn't what they thought it would be. Krusty isn't even involved! The school bullies are their camp counselors! It really is that bad.

Meanwhile, Homer and Marge have never seemed happier. Homer's losing weight, gaining hair and reviving the romance with Marge.

This is a really neat episode with a lot of spot-on jokes. It's a classic. Kamp Krusty has since become a cornerstone of Springfield lore.

Watch this episode and figure out why.
