Homer in school and Bart and Lisa writing Itchy and Scratchy? Yes!
8 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode we learn that Homer never completed high school. He has one more course left to take. Meanwhile, Bart and Lisa, discouraged by bad episodes of Itchy and Scratchy, begin writing the episodes themselves under Grandpa Simpson's name.

A good deal of the show's writer were Harvard graduates. There are multiple Harvard jokes in this episode. You can just imagine how these writers were jabbing themselves back and forth while writing this episode.

Grandpa Simpson and Krusty are great in this episode, while Homer's plunger may top them all. Then there's the fact that this is a nice Bart and Lisa adventure story.
