Trivia

The two evil French wine makers, Cesar and Ugolin, are named after the two villains of the classic French films "Jean de Florette" (1986) and "Manon of the Spring" (1986). See more »

Goofs

During the entire scene in which Principal Skinner discusses the student exchange program with Marge and Homer, the house layout is incorrect. The scene takes place in the living room and in the background, the dining room and the family room have switched places with each other. Thus making the front door and the back door seem to be on the same side of the house, which is incorrect. See more »

Funny and Interesting!
24 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is one of the bright spots for Season 1 for many reasons. It's funny and quite interesting. This is also the first episode where we get to see a Simpson leave Springfield. There are some funny scenes especially when Homer doesn't see his new Albanian son as a threat as he gives him blueprints of a nuclear reactor. I also like how the French are stereotyped because this is exactly how they usually are stereotyped by Americans.

This episode, "The Crepes of Wrath" has Bart almost seriously injuring Principal Skinner's mother at school. Skinner, therefore proposes a plan by sending him to France. While in France, Bart becomes a slave of some very bad winemakers.

Overall, this is a fun episode that is really interesting. There are a few funny moments but this is one of the strongest episodes yet in the early going. I rate this episode 9/10.
