This episode is my favourite appearance of sideshow bob, nearly all of the characters acting stupid at one stage or another, in homer's case, at least ten times. When bart gets threatening letters from an unknown source, chief wiggum doesn't think it's against the law. marge pauses between saying to bart "i'm going to get you...some ice-cream..." The thompson scene is definitely one of homer's stupid moments. sideshow bob is surprisingly stupid in this episode aswell, continuously stepping on rakes, using a bloody finger to write notes and fainting from blood loss and agreeing to sing the entire song of The HMS pinafore to Bart as a last request. bart tries to escape the boat by jumping out, seeing crocodiles on one side, electric eels on the other, then going back to the crocodile side. evenan extra said "anyone who speaks german can't be an evil man". this stupidity definitely contributes to the humour of this episode. the mystery in the first act is indeed mysterious the first time I saw this episode and the reveal of Sideshow Bob was very well written. this is indeed one of the simpsons episodes that will be remembered for a long time.
