Did You Know?


In the intro, when spoofing Cheers, Sideshow Bob walks in, forcing the family to flee. This is a reference to Kelsey Grammer (who voices Sideshow Bob) playing the character Dr. Frasier Crane on Cheers (1982). See more »


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 »


Kent Brockman: So. you're guaranteeing it's safe to eat Ogdenville barley once more?
Ogdenville farmer: Well, where there's barley, there's rats, you know? Now, when will you be starting the interview?
Kent Brockman: That just went out live.
Ogdenville farmer: Well, then we're screwed.

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!
