Trivia

Despite being shown as the final episode of the 1st season, this was actually the first episode of the series to be made, as shown by the production code. The reason it was shown last was because the episode first came back ruined, so was sent back to Korea to be redone. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Bart is first shown sitting tied up on the couch, Ms Botz walks in carrying a tied-up Lisa in her arms and drops her on the sofa alongside Bart. You can clearly see at this point that the the rope Ms. Botz has used to bind Lisa is wound around her whole body from her neck right down to her ankles. When Maggie comes downstairs a couple of shots later and frees the two of them, the section of rope tying Lisa's legs together at the knees has disappeared completely See more »

Quotes

Ms. Botz: Your parents left me this for you to watch.
[holds up The Happy Little Elves]
Lisa Simpson: Oh, boy! The Happy Little Elves!
Bart Simpson: Look, lady. We've seen the Crappy Little Elves a million times. Can't we watch something else?
Ms. Botz: Look, kid. You're going to do what I say or I'm going to do something to you. And I don't know what that is because everyone has always done what I say!

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.
