Written by Ken Keeler
Directed by Wes Archer
Also starring: Pamela Hayden, Tress MacNeille, Maggie Roswell
Premise: The Simpsons have new neighbours - ex-President George Bush and his wife Barbara. But George and Bart don't get on.
Features: Grampa, the Flanders, Apu, Lenny and Carl, Chief Wiggum, Dr Hibbert, Milhouse, Principal Skinner.
Cameos: Everyone's at the rummage sale.
Couch: A big game hunter has bagged the Simpsons.
Notes for Brits: In 1990 George Bush had expressed his wish for the American family to be 'more like the Waltons than the Simpsons...' Six years passed before the Simpsons took their revenge.
Homage: The relationship between Bart and George Bush is a homage to the US sitcom Dennis the Menace, in which a young scamp terrorised an older neighbour. Grampa refers to Grover Cleveland, the only President to have served two non-consecutive terms in office.
Notes: Very strange, this episode takes The Simpsons into a whole new dimension of political satire. The lampooning of a single public figure is a startling move. Works much better for Americans, we're told.
