Trivia

The original airing had an introduction which was a dig at President George Bush's comments (saying that American families should be "more like _The Waltons_ and less like The Simpsons"). The family is sitting in front of the TV watching Bush's speech, and Bart fires back with, "Hey, we're just like The Waltons; we're praying for an end to The Depression too!" See more »

I knew it Was Michael
15 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

This Episode of the Simpsons is by far the sweetest and most touching of all the series. The Simpsons have brought a mysterious character into this particular episode who appears to be a Fat guy in prison. But he seemed too warm and kindhearted to be in Jail. I wont go any further so as not to spoil the show when you watch it. The Simpsons have tried to keep this character a secret, but it was no secret when i checked out IMDb for this particular episode.

The very first time i heard the voice of the fat guy in this episode, i knew that voice was familiar and that it was Michael's. It was difficult to prove it was his voice after the credits ran and didn't show his name. But, looking through Michael's profile on IMDb, I solved a great Mystery that has had me wondering, Who has such a voice and yet is not Popular in the music business ...
