Who did you think shot Mr. Burns?

Oh and between my sister and cousins, I was the one to discover that Mr. Burns was missing his gun when he was shot and fell.

And for some reason, I suspected that the Germans had shot Mr. Burns. You know, the Germans who bought Mr. Burns nuclear power plant, sold it back to him for less than half and swore they would get him back.

    I thought it was Maggie or Santas Little Helper. I can't remember the clues but I did guess/determine that Maggie done it. That was so much fun!
    I'm probably a couple years younger than you. I also recorded episodes onto VHS. My favorite recorded episode was "Flaming Moe's". Wow, that takes me back.

    ...wow, that's actually a good point. the thought of them never crossed my mind until now. Given their attitude about some fans at the time it would have been the perfect turn of events.

    It stinks that nobody bit the bait they laid with the other suspects, the leaked fake suspects didn't take so something like that that nobody was a really good way of catching everyone by surprise.

    Panopticnic... u missed the thread asking ppl their ages :lol: I remember watching it... but not who my suspect was. Now a days they would have alternative endings to confuse us, or have someone else looking shifty as if the guilty party wasnt the true committer

    I thought as a joke that it's probably Maggie or one of the hounds. Turns out the thought was quite spot on :)

    You would have to ignore the Simpson DNA and that would be nutty

    Great topic. .i just watched part 2 last night, with commentary. They mention that no one that of the first 1000 contest entries from that 1-800-collect contest guessed correctly, but one person on alt.simpsons got it right after the first episode. Has anyone gone back to the archives of those boards and tried to find that guys posts? Im very intrigued. ..

    They said that you can see his posts, but he used a college email address that was no longer valid.
    I just want to read what this guy had to say...I'd like to see how he figured it out after seeing just part 1!

    I'm trying to remember my thought process over that summer, but its been so long... I think I guessed that it was Smithers, as that seemed like the least likely suspect at the time. Then it turned out he was the most likely suspect. :oops:

    I went from Smithers to Homer...Smithers deserved to be the guy who pulled the trigger but then I wanted it to be Homer because it would have been a cool episode with a "how are they going to get him off the hook" thing at the end of the episode.

    I tried to find the original post, I stink at doing deep searches but did notice that whoever was correct didn't toot his own horn and gloat about it.

    Hey would you mind showing me where you were searching? I suck at deep searches as well, but I have plenty of time to investigate tomorrow. ..
