Several ex-presidents attend Mr. Burns' birthday party. The bouncer allows Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon to enter, but refuses to admit George Bush Sr. because he was a one-termer. However, Nixon also served only one term, but he was admitted anyway. Nixon was elected to two terms, although he resigned during his second term, the only President to do so. See more »

My favorite episode!!!!
2 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Rosebud" is my very favorite episode of The Simpsons. I've seen this episode lots of times and have loved it even more every time I watched it.

It's a very nice episode about Mr. Burns and how his childhood teddy bear Bobo got lost and he hasn't seen it since. But when the Simpsons family receives it in a bag of ice, they wonder if they need to give it back to him or not.

My favorite part of the episode had to be when Maggie gave Mr. Burns' lost bear back. I thought that was so cute and sweet. Though I also liked when Homer saw Mr. Burns' bear through the fish tank and said "How long have we had these fish!". That was so funny!

So overall this was a very funny episode from season 5.
