YMMV: The Simpsons S 15 E 21 Bart Mangled Banner
  • Anvilicious: This makes the more politically one-sided episodes of Family Guy and South Park look fair and balanced.
  • Denser and Wackier: It's been called one of the craziest and least loved episodes of the series — edging out such former contenders as "Saddlesore Galatica," "Kill The Alligator and Run," and "Homer vs. Dignity."
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Many fans consider the treatment of the family by the townspeople to be this, and the excessive and heavy-handed anti-Republican satire.
  • Values Dissonance: This episode is more looked down upon now than it was back then now that Bush has left office and we've grown out of the over-patriotic attitudes of the early 2000s. Of course, back then it wasn't exactly liked because of how heavy-handed it was in the political department.
