Beware My Dear Rattlesnakes!
9 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the twentieth episode of the fourth season of the Simpsons. This is a very good episode that introduces us a strange custom of Springfield: Whacking Day. There are some clever jokes here as usual. I particularly liked the cameo of Barry White who performed a new version of his classic hit.

In this episode, "Whacking Day," Bart gets expelled from school after an incident involving the superintendent of the school, so Marge decides to homeschool him. Meanwhile, Lisa is appalled by how active Springfield is in their annual custom of beating rattlesnakes.

Overall, this is another classic episode of the Simpsons. It's hilarious and I love how Grampa tries to explain to Bart his adventures during World War Two. That scene with Hitler had me laughing. I rate this episode 9/10.
