Did You Know?


Inspired by Stephen King's novel "Under the Dome", Burns threatens to cover Springfield with a dome; Lenny informs him that it has already been done before. This is in reference to the plot of The Simpsons Movie (2007), when Homer's shenanigans cause the Environmental Protection Agency to cover Springfield with a dome. See more »


Lou claims that no one thinks to dig themselves out from a dome placed over a city. However, this is not the case. In Stephen King's Under the Dome, there is a mention of the army trying and failing to dig the town out from the dome. This is especially relevant since Burns used Under the Dome as an example for his revenge. See more »

It was Fun to see the Town get Revenge on Mr. Burns,
26 November 2010 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

The Fool Monty is a great Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and a lot of very funny parts.Its certainly weak compared to previous episodes in the twenty second season,but it still has plenty of good moments.My favourite part of the whole episode was certainly seeing the people of Springfield get revenge on Mr. Burns,they used very cruel methods of payback but it was very funny,also the way Burns talked and acted had me in stitches,it was certainly the most different we've ever seen his character in the series and I really enjoyed seeing him behave so differently.Definitely a weaker moment for the twenty second season,but the Fool Monty is still an enjoyable Simpsons episode.

After Mr. Burns has a severe accident and receives amnesia.the people of Springfield use this advantage to get their revenge on him.
