  • Bart's sworn enemy Sideshow Bob has been paroled and once again tries to murder Bart. The Simpsons' efforts to elude Bob have them joining the Witness Protection Program and being relocated to a town named Cape Feare.

    Hands down the funniest episode of the season. The laughs do not stop from beginning to end. Kelsey Grammar is once again in top form as the voice of Sideshow Bob. It's hard to determine which is the best scene in this episode because there are so many great ones. From the Simpsons' drive to their new home to Bob's unlucky encounters with numerous rakes and a very painful parade, it's hard to say which is the best. Let's not forget the hysterical way that Bart manages to outsmart Bob and save himself. Definitely a classic episode of "The Simpsons."
