Storyline

Shelbyville kids hijack Springfield's sacred lemon tree after being pelted with lemons, and Bart leads a guerrilla war against them (I say a war, but it's nowhere near violent.) They find out that the tree is in "the impenetrable fortress of suburbia"- a car impound lot, owned by the leader's (Shelby's) dad. Homer and the parents of the kids find them and team up with them to get the tree back. But how are they gonna get it from a car impound lot? Written by movieguy3

Trivia

The establishments in Shelbyville "mirror" those of Springfield. Speed-E-Mart spoofs the Kwik-E-Mart, and has an Asian-looking Apu-type character. Joe's is a parody of Moes, and features a Moe look-alike with a different hairstyle. Shelbyville Elementary School is identical to Sprinfield Elementary, and features a groundskeeper who is a female version of Willie. See more »

Goofs

Flanders' RV has the entry door on the driver's side (left) when they enter it the first time and when they leave after being towed to the impound lot, all other shots and scenes show the door on the passenger side (right) or no door on the driver's side. See more »

Shelbyvillian #1: Sounds like Springfield's got a discipline problem.
Shelbyvillian #2: Maybe that's why we beat them at football nearly half the time.

Best Episode
3 July 2008 | by (australia) – See all my reviews

This has to be my favorite episode of The Simpsons. It features some great humour, a original and engaging plot and some memorable moments. When Marge catches Bart trying to draw his name in wet pavement cement she lectures him on town pride and this sticks in Bart's mind. Bart and Milhouse go to the sacred lemon tree on a hill near the border with Shelbyville and soon a fight breaks out between Shelbyville and Springfield kids over the tree when Shelbyville kids, with almost Seinfeld style similarities to Bart and his friends (the episode where Elaine meets these friends who are like alternate universe Seinfeld and friends). Bart and his friends go undercover as Shelbyvillians and Bart is 'caught' when he reveals himself by spray painting a message and telling the Shelbyville kids his true identity. He makes a getaway on skateboard after a failed attempt to use spray paint cans as jet packs and is followed by the leader of the Shelbyville kids. His skateboard gets stuck in some wet cement, an ironic twist. All round good episode.
