  • After a reckless Squishee bender with Milhouse, Bart wakes to the shocking realization that he joined the Junior Campers. Lured by pocketknives and knot-tying lessons, Bart assimilates into the group but then must face the father-son rafting trip.
  • "Boy-Scoutz 'n the Hood" is the eighth episode of The Simpsons' fifth season. It originally aired on the Fox network in the United States on November 18, 1993. In the episode, Bart, intoxicated from an all-syrup squishee, mistakenly joins the Junior Campers, a Boy Scout-style organization that's not affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America. After finding advantages to being a member, Bart gets taken in by the group and eventually goes camping on a father-son outing with Homer. The episode was written by Dan McGrath and directed by Jeffrey Lynch. Ernest Borgnine guest starred in the episode as himself. He recorded his lines at the Village Recorder in West Los Angeles. The episode makes cultural references to the films My Dinner with Andre, The Terminator, On the Town, Crocodile Dundee, Deliverance and Friday the 13th, as well as the song "Sugar, Sugar" by The Archies. Since airing, the episode has received mostly positive reviews from television critics. It acquired a Nielsen rating of 13.0, and was the highest-rated show on the Fox network the week it aired.
