According to director David Silverman, he had Julie Kavner go through that speech over 100 times until he was completely satisfied!-First of all, there was no Sideshow Bob. He's my favorite Simpsons character of all time, so that was kind of sad that he wasn't in it.
-Mr. Burns and Smithers were grossly under-used IMO. See, I always put them at the top of the list of secondary characters (along with Flanders and Chief wiggum for example) and they only had three scenes. They were all good, who doesn't love Mr. Burns releasing the hounds?
That part where Marge was saying it was over to Homer on the video tape had me in tears it was so sad.
And yeah, Burns and Smithers are my two favorite characters, and it was kinda a disappointment they didn't have a lot of screen time. But the scenes they DID have were pure gold, especially their last, lol!
Kelsey Grammer recorded Sideshow Bob, but ultimately he was left on the cutting room floor. Hopefully his scene (or scenes) will be restored on the DVD. BTW, Sideshow Bob, Sideshow Cecil AND their father (John Mahoney) will be featured in the upcoming season.
Nice avvy! Good to see ol' Grimey again! "Homer's Enemy" is one of my all-time favorite episodes!
