    I remember I always thought the candy the French cop gave Bart is what made him start speeking French.

      That’s probably a better explanation than the episode itself provides, to be fair.

        They do lay in one line from Skinner early on that kids tend to pick up a foreign language if they’re surrounded by it for long enough, but I don’t even think the writers themselves believed that. There’s a great moment on the DVD commentary when Bart instantly becomes fluent in French, where George Meyer’s only remark is “I buy it, I hope you do too.”

        Again, it was Season 1, they were still learning.

Useful Legal Tidbit

Even though it’s obvious to anyone with a functional frontal lobe and a shred of morality, we feel the need to include this disclaimer. This website (which openly advocates for the cancellation of a beloved television series) is in no way, shape or form affiliated with the FOX Network, the News Corporation, subsidiaries thereof, or any of Rupert Murdoch’s wives or children. “The Simpsons” is (unfortunately) the intellectual property of FOX. We and our crack team of one (1) lawyer believe that everything on this site falls under the definition of Fair Use and is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. No revenue is generated from this endeavor; we’re here because we love “The Simpsons”. And besides, you can’t like, own a potato, man, it’s one of Mother Earth’s creatures.
