    This is one of the best Simpson episodes ever, and is regarded as one of the all-time greats. It is a parody of the horror film, Cape Fear, also taking its title. Sideshow Bob is shown in prison writing threatening letters to Bart. He is soon released from prison and vows to act his revenge against Bart. The Simpsons find out about this and enter a witness protection program that leads them to the town, Terror Lake. Little do they know that Sideshow Bob has been following them all along. This is easily one of my favorite episodes and another great Sideshow Bob episode.
