Dead Putting Society


Episode Info

Homer Simpson (voice of Dan Castellaneta) has never had much patience with his neighbor, unbearably cheerful born-again Christian Ned Flanders (voice of Harry Shearer), and one day after a few beers in Ned's rumpus room, Homer decides Ned is deliberately flaunting his cushier lifestyle and more functional family just to make Homer feel bad. While Ned is deeply chagrined, Homer is determined to find some way in which he can prove the Simpsons are a better family than the Flanders. When Homer discovers that Ned's son Todd (voice of Nancy Cartwright) is entered in a miniature golf contest at Sir Putt-A-Lot's Merrie Olde Fun Center, he decides that Bart (also voiced by Cartwright) should compete against him, even though Bart knows nothing about golf, and informs his son "this is the only time I'm ever gonna say this -- it is NOT OK to lose!" Homer's training methods prove to be all but useless, but Lisa (voice of Yeardley Smith) gives her brother a crash course in both geometry and Zen philosophy, and soon Bart is putting like a master. However, the rivalry between Homer and Ned only grows more contentious, and the two men make a bet -- whoever's son doesn't win has to mow his front lawn wearing his wife's best dress. "Dead Putting Society" was first aired on November 15, 1990.
