  • When Principal Skinner challenges superintendent Gary Chalmers to take over Bart's education, Bart becomes fascinated and interested in the American history of President Teddy Roosevelt


    I thought that this was an excellent episode of "The Simpsons". It is truly amazing how the staff have been running "The Simpsons" for 23 seasons and the writers prove that they know how to bring the humor and charms in this show after so long. It's good to see that the writers still try to make "The Simpsons" one of the best animated programs ever and they don't become lazy. I can tell by these episodes that the writers are still trying. And the users that are saying the writers aren't trying anymore. Well... they are trying very hard. Think about it, do you users think you can run a cartoon or television show for 23 seasons? No, that's what I thought so don't give these writers a hard time. Anyways, I loved this episode very much and the storyline made me laugh hard from start to finish. Homer didn't have a huge role in this episode but whatever scenes involve Homer even if it was for like 10 seconds... he still made me laugh. Gary Chalmers taking Bart and his friends on a trip to see the American history of Teddy Roosevelt was funny and cool. It was nice to see Bart actually be interested in some history. A lot of parts made me laugh so hard but I don't think I name them all. I did laugh very hard at the very end of the episode with Millhouse going crazy because he didn't take a nap. Are you kidding? More parts made me laugh hard. I just can't name them all. If you watch this episode, you'll know which parts definitely made me laugh hard. Overall, I love this episode and I still love "The Simpsons". 10/10
