The Ogdenvillers are allowed to help in its construction,during which time a strange new bond forms between the two townships. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

After the 20th season wrapped, The Simpsons' next episode has Bart write on the chalkboard, "High-definition is worth every penny." See more »

Goofs

When Krusty goes to take a bite, the close up isn't him at all. The man in the close up's face is yellow, not white, and he has a regular pair of lips, not the monkey style like Krusty and Homer. This is, of course, on purpose, to imply that Krusty didn't really eat the burger, and that the commercial's production values are shoddy. See more »

Quotes

Homer Simpson: I share your xylophobia!
Lisa Simpson: No, Dad, you mean "xenophobia". Xylophobia would be the fear of xylophones.
Homer Simpson: I *am* afraid of xylophones. It's the music you hear when skeletons are dancing!

Episodes like this remind us what is so great about 'The Simpsons'.
13 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode was impeccable, I really thought it was one of the best in the show's history.

The story starts when Krusty is forced to bring out a more healthy burger in his fast-food chains, so he begins to sell 'The Mother Nature Burger' with vegetables. The vegetables, which come from Norwegian farmers in Ogdenville, make several people ill and the workers are out of business. Seeking for work, they move to Springfield and soon the town is full of immigrants and the towns people have had enough.

I can relate to this episode a lot, due to the Polish migrants moving into the UK, where I live.

I loved this episode and laughed harder than I have in a long time at 'The Simpsons'. A real eye-opener!

10/10!!
