  • The first season ends with Homer and Marge going out for a night on the town leaving the kids with a babysitter who may just be a wanted fugitive.

    This episode is not a classic like first season episodes "There's No Disgrace Like Home" and "The Call of the Simpsons", but it's an entertaining one. This episode has a very clever opening scene. Seeing the family get off to work/school is very well done. Dr. Marvin Monroe's "therapy session" with Marge is another highlight. What's even better is the reaction of Homer's co-workers. The best part of the episode is its climax where the kids outwit and capture (at least until Homer and Marge get home) the notorious babysitter bandit. The first season of "The Simpsons" delivered the laughs.
