Did You Know?


The writers revealed in the Season 7 DVD commentary that, at the time the episode was being written, they had no idea that "George Bush Jr." ('George W. Bush') actually existed. The joke was supposed to be that Homer, being his idiotic self, made up a fake son. See more »


Grampa claims he was "spanked by Grover Cleveland in two non-consecutive occasions." This is obviously a joke based on the fact that Cleveland was the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms as president, but it is highly unlikely that this is true, as Cleveland died in 1908, and later in the series, Grampa is revealed to have been a young boy during World War I, and thereby likely not alive at the same time as Cleveland.

Excellent episode but a bit complicated
17 August 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This episode is great but not the best episode of the series, the episode follows George W.H. Bush being the neighbor of the Simpsons, they fight, they begin war for each other when George meets his New arch-nemesis Bart and Homer, when Bart comes over to meet him, Bart accidentally broke his memorials, then he hated The Simpsons, then he begins to break their lawn but Barbra on the other hand, doesn't care. They fight under the sewer and then his lawyer meets him and replaced With Gerald Ford, a comparison to Homer and former president, then at the end Homer hangs out With him and lived happily ever after
