Although airing at the end of Season One, this episode was written first. This is why Santa's Little Helper doesn't make an appearance. See more »


Homer's voice fluctuates wildly in this episode, one of the first to be filmed. Sometimes, he speaks in an imitation of Walter Matthau, e.g. when he is rehearsing what he will say to Marge outside the house, and sometimes he speaks in a voice which Dan Castellaneta later settled on for Homer (in the flower shop).

Funny But A Little Rough
26 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The final episode of Season 1 seems to have fallen out of the pot compared to the last few episodes. What I mean by that is how the animation seems rough and a bit patched. I'm not saying the quality of the episode is bad, but the animation is on par with the first and second episodes. But other than that, it still has the same old Simpsons you have come to love as well as the sharp comedy and the witty story.

This episode, "Some Enchanted Evening" has Homer and Marge going out on their second honeymoon. Bart, Lisa, and Maggie are home with the babysitter who happens to be "armed and dangerous." That could be the cause of some trouble.

Overall, this is not a bad episode. I enjoyed the plot line involving the kids and the babysitter the most. I wish they found a better episode to end a season, but this is still worth watching. I can't wait to watch Season 2. I rate this episode 8/10.
