Why It Rocks
- The episode gives some justice to Bart and his school friends to finding the lemon tree that was stolen by Shelbyville kids.
- Writers from the fields of adventure, philosophy and popular culture.
- Amazing adventure of Bart and his friends against Springfield's city rival, Shelbyville, to the rescue their lemon tree.
- The episode is one of the most brilliantly, funny, unforgettable and tightly written of the season; all the dialogue is quick, positive, nice, mouthful, and snappy followed by the humorous jokes and gags.
- Great victory after numerous plans.
- Funny and likable war.
The Only Bad Quality
- The Shelbyville citizens, especially the kids, are awful, unlikable characters as they bad mouth Springfield non-stop and are rude to the people who live in Springfield. (However, it's likely that the writers made them unlikable on purpose)
- The episode was written by Brent Forrester.
The episode was positively received by critics and audiences, and is regarded as one of the series' best.
