  • A better episode than the previous ep

    Principal Skinner challenges superintendent Gary Chalmers to take over Bart's education after one of Bart's pranks leads to a school fundraiser debacle. Chalmers takes an unconventional approach to teaching American history which sparks a fascination in President Teddy Roosevelt. Encouraged by Bart's educational renaissance, Chalmers takes Bart and his band of "Rough Riders" on an overnight excursion to Springfield Forest, but after a minor accident, the school administration fires Chalmers for taking the boys on an unauthorized field trip. Determined to get Chalmers' job back, Bart and the boys hold the school hostage until the administration reinstates Chalmers, and they stand up for the teacher who made a meaningful impact. I thought this episode was perfect and it was better than the season 23 premiere since the storyline was interesting. I was surprised on the couch gag design because it was made by John K (creator of Ren and Stimpy)...that explains the familiar animation. Funny parts were any of Homer's appearances here, the beginning, and the last minutes of it, etc. The other parts were very great to watch. Score 10/10
