Lots of Fun Musical Numbers,
10 October 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Elementary School Musical is a fantastic Simpsons with a very written storyline and loads of very funny scenes.It is a great opener for the twenty second season,I really loved all the musical numbers in the episode,particularly the ones performed by Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie,better known as Fight of the Conchords,their songs were genuinely catchy and their characters dialogue were the episodes highlight.I also really liked the side story as we see Krusty,Homer and Bart stuck in Holland as Krusty is being taken to court.Elementary School Musical is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

Jealous that her brother and father are gone on a trip to Holland with Krusty the Clown,Lisa attends an Arts camp where her teachers let her truly express herself.
