George Walker Bush was the 43rd President of the United States, serving from 2001-2009.
In "Two Bad Neighbors", during a war with his new neighbor George H. W. Bush, Homer lured Bush into coming to the door by placing cardboard cut-outs of Bush's sons in front of the door, announcing, "It's your sons, George Bush Jr. and Jeb Bush!" But as soon as Bush answers the door, the cutouts disappear and a rainbow wig is glued to his head.
When Superintendent Chalmers showed Bart an illustration depicting all of the U.S. Presidents, Bush was one of the few that Bart recognized. However, Bart misidentified him as Will Ferrell. Shocked by Bart's ignorance, Chalmers decided to start teaching Bart about Theodore Roosevelt.
Marge told Homer that George W. Bush sobered up and became president.
Behind the Laughter
In real life, George W. Bush and Will Ferrell bear strong resemblances to each other, so Bart's misidentification is somewhat understandable.
