    A very good episode, with some actual human emotion (although, it may have been too sappy, even thought that was fixed with some quick gags) A

    This episode's sappiness didn't bother me at all, as it was done nicely, and with a good humorous touch on it. Overall, Good Episode. One of the best christmas ones (although it doesn't have very much to do with it) (4/5)

    A+, 5/5. Absolutely flawless. Marge Be Not Proud is one of the best Marge/Bart stories in the show's history, proving that both mother and son are human beings with human emotions. Great humour buttressed an already iron-strong story: Bart covering one television in front of a wall of them. Homer's rant about the Police Academy movies. Spoiled Gavin and his mom, equipped with 2 Bonestorms because he wouldn't share with Kaitlyn. Marge Be Not Proud is made complete with a public service video with Troy McClure.

    Marge was also one of the first episodes I remember from my childhood, even though I've been watching since Season 3 or 4.

    Marge, is Lisa at Camp Granada?
    I was saying "Boo-urns."

    Brilliant episode, managed to squeeze it in my top 10. The plot's been used on other shows, but this has the Simpsons twist with a look at Bart/Marge's relationship and some great jokes, mentioned above.

    I guess I saw this too many times, since they always showed it. At first I liked it, but now I change the channel whenever this episode is on.

    3/5

    I give it a 5/5. Had a sad story line for Bart. Sweet ending. Putting Challenge video game on the ending credits was the funniest part. I like this episode more every time I watch it.

    I just watched this earlier today in fact. I don't know how many goddamn times I've seen it by now; either way I should be used to everything in it. Yet I still just about cried at the ending. What the hell is wrong with me? I'm such a wimp.

    But yes, fantastic episode. Best Christmas themed episode for sure, and one of my favorites of the whole series. Touching, poigniant, and hilarious. A+
    Two eyes, two ears, a chin, a mouth, ten fingers, two nipples, a butt, two kneecaps, a penis. I've just described to you the Loch Ness Monster. And the reward for its capture? All the riches in Scotland. So I have one question: why are you here?

    This is a worthy "sequel" to Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire, or if not a sequel, it's a very good Christmas episode in its own right. Bart's desire to shoplift was realistically written, and we can all understand wanting a particular thing so much that we have to resort to larceny. Lawrence Tierney as Don Brodka is a convincing and rather intimidating store detective, Marge does well as the doting mother who worries she overprotects Bart, Homer is at his funniest, the characterisation and jokes are as good as ever, and there's still room for emotion as well. I liked the way they conveyed Bart's emotional isolation from his parents, and the computer-game jokes were great, where Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog persuade Bart to steal Bonestorm from the Try-N-Save.

    Perfect Christmas episode with some emotion and humour. (5/5)

    I also think its TOO low key, but its a very good episode. The first time I watched it I wasnt very excited about it but its good because you never get tired when yopu rewatch it. And it has one of the best Marges characterizations, too. Ill give it a 5/5

    I did give this an A+ but on a repeated viewing it went down a notch, I can't really explain there's just something not quite right about so its just an A as opposed to an A+.

    The thing is all classicly produced episodes written by Scully have signs of his trademarks, in fact most of them are weaker by classic era standard, with the exception of this one.

    They rarely show it on the local television stations, although the s.o.b.'s only show Simpsons 1 time a day.
    I'd have to drag it out from DVD and watch it for a full synopsis on it, but overall one of the earliest shows I remember.
    4/5.

    But as Scully proved, it's not the writer that matters, but rather the Executive Producer. Episodes with Scully as the writer credit's quality are mostly the product of the great EPs that he wrote under (but, as Homer Thompson pointed out, he did shine through), while great writers like Swartzwelder's poor episodes in the Scully era are mostly Scully's fault. See, it works both ways!


    Anyways, this is easily one of my favorites, with some GREAT voice work from Nancy and Julie and truly empathetic characterizations of Bart and Marge. Classic, pure class...ic. (A+)
