One of Sideshow Bobs cleverest schemes,
18 August 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Bob Next Door is a fantastic Simpsons episode,with a lot of shocking surprises,the story all plans out great,its also got to be one of Sideshow Bobs cleverest schemes.

When The Simpsons neighbours move out,they get a new one called Walt Warren,who everyone in Evergreen Terrace gets a good first impression of,apart from Bart who suspects that hes Sideshow Bob,because he sounds a lot like him.
