Best Sideshow Bob Episode Ever and Maybe the Funniest Episode Of All Time
22 November 2020 | by vlinalterSee all my reviews

This episode is so great. It perfectly balances suspense with humor. There are so many funny jokes! This episode somehow makes someone trying to murder a child funny! This is also where the running gag of Sideshow Bob stepping on rakes originated and the first appearance of the Sideshow Bob theme which has appeared with him ever since which is why I think that this is the classic Sideshow Bob episode. This might be one of the best episodes ever and is definitely the funniest.
