Did You Know?


Despite Nelson saying otherwise, Mr Lasson isn't the first person to call him Smelson. He was to be named as such on a MAD magazine in episode 262 'New Kids on the Blecch'. See more »


The main plot of the episode centers around Bart's new teacher, and many scenes are at school or in the classroom. However, early in the episode Marge chastises Homer for failing to book a camp site in advance, explaining that "Labor Day is just a week away". Unless all the kids featured in the episode at school (including Lisa) are in summer school for the whole episode, then the events would all be taking place during August because of this line, and therefore Bart would be on summer vacation.

Different but Quite Funny,
27 February 2015 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Blazed and Confused is a great Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and loads of very funny scenes. The concept of the episode did sound really ridiculous to me at first and I was honestly expecting little from it, simply because the Simpsons going to a Burning Man like event seemed weird, but it was actually a very funny and enjoyable episode, the way it happened made sense. I really enjoyed Willem Dafoe's guest role in this episode, he played an interesting character and I would like to hopefully see him again some day, the cameo at the end was also one of the episodes highlights and is a promising new set up for a future episode. Blazing Guy is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

Bart may have met his match in the form of a new teacher, and convinces his family to go to Blazing Guy in order to take him down.
