Trivia

There were difficulties getting this episode up to the minimum length of an episode and many scenes were added in post-production. The episode starts with a repeat of a couch gag that was first used in The Simpsons: Lisa's First Word (1992), which is considerably longer than the typical couch gag. The crew added an Itchy & Scratchy cartoon and a few misleads as to who was trying to kill Bart. Even with all of these additions, the episode still ran short of time. This led to the creation of the rake sequence, which became a memorable moment of the episode, and the entire series. See more »

Goofs

In singing the Bos'un's song from H.M.S. Pinafore, Sideshow Bob changes the line from "He is an Englishman" from "it's greatly to his credit" to "it's clearly to his credit". See more »

Best Sideshow Bob Episode Ever!
14 August 2018 | by deracktakadeSee all my reviews

This episode is not the best Sideshow Bob episode, but it's also the best episode of Season 5. It's an original from the Golden Age (1-10). And oh, rakes....
