Did You Know?


When Bart jumps on Cecil's shoulders covering his eyes with his hands and says guess who, Cecil replies "Maris?" - David Hyde Pierce (who does the voice of Cecil) played Niles on the hit show _"Frasier"_. His wife on the show was called Maris. See more »


Bob tells Lisa he has learned a thing or two about dynamite after being a homicidal maniac for ten years, but earlier in the episode Bob says it's been ten years since he and Cecil have seen each other, because of the incident where Bob got the job as Krusty's side kick, so that would mean Bob has been a homicidal maniac before he tried to kill Krusty, indicating a secret murderous life we've yet to see.

Lisa: Oh, it's hopeless. Utterly, utterly hopeless.
Sideshow Bob: Oh, I see. When it's one of *my* schemes you can't foil it fast enough, but when *Cecil* tries to kill you, "it's hopeless, utterly, utterly hopeless."

One of the Best Sideshow Bob Episodes
9 August 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is another classic Sideshow Bob episode that all will fall in love with because this episode seems to take a deeper turn and a wilder fall into Sideshow Bob's life - His Brother.

The episode flows along like any Sideshow Bob episode and then he is released from prison once again. Sideshow Bob then goes and work with his brother Cecil at dam trying to build up on concrete or something like that. Bart & Lisa seem suspicious of Bob's intentions and what he might pull. Towards the end of the episode Cecil takes the money from Bob and then plans to blow up the dam with Bob, Bart & Lisa. Cecil gets caught and goes back to jail and even as Bob had saved the children's lives, he had to go back to jail to. lol This episode is More funnier than the other SideShow Bob episodes though I really love this one because it's so intense and this episode just seems to come together in the first minute. 9.4/10
