Trivia

This episode is the culmination of a war of words between the The Simpsons (1989) and former President George Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush. Barbara Bush referred to the show as "the dumbest thing I've ever seen" in a 1990 interview with People magazine, which prompted the writers of the show to write her an angry letter in character as Marge Simpson; Mrs. Bush later apologized. One year later The Simpsons showed Barbara Bush in the White House bathtub in the episode The Simpsons: Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington (1991). In 1992 President Bush stated while appearing before the National Religious Broadcasters, "We are going to keep on trying to strengthen the American family, to make American families a lot more like the Waltons and a lot less like the Simpsons." The writers of The Simpsons responded by added a new intro to the episode The Simpsons: Stark Raving Dad (1991) where Bart responds to President Bush's speech saying, "We're just like the Waltons. We're praying for an end to the depression too". President Bush made one more appearance after this episode collecting unemployment benefits in The Simpsons: Realty Bites (1997). See more »

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

10/10
