Trivia

There were a few problems with the finished animation for the episode. The banana in the opening scene was colored incorrectly, as the Korean animators were unfamiliar with the fruit, and the final bathtub scene was particularly problematic, including issues with lip sync. The version in the broadcast episode was the best of several attempts See more »

Goofs

During the "Kwyjibo" scene, Homer is seen holding a brown skinned banana in his left hand. The banana remains in his hand through the scene when Bart is forced to explain what a "Kwyjibo" is, but when Homer begins to chase Bart, the banana disappears completely with no sign it was ever there.

Bart The Genius, The 2nd Best Episode of season 1
27 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bart the Genius is the 2nd best episode of season 1 because it took all the greatness of the 1st episode and improved it.

This episode helps to develop Bart as a character as well as a great father and son between homer and Bart and balanced the main plot with the father and son B story.This has a excellent premise and is executed is a beautiful way with a funny ending.

The plot begins with a IQ test in witch Bart cheats and has a IQ of 216 and is he is moved to a smarter school and this is were the B story comes into effect at a opera where bat and homer make fun of everything that comes into mind.

The Third Act is the best Act in this episode where Bart admits to Homer he is not a genius the music is problay the best part of it then it gets to the funny side where Homer chases Bart and Homer keeps banging on the door of Barts room.

My Final Rating:

98%
