Bart's Dog Gets an F


Episode Info

Homer Simpson (voice of Dan Castellaneta) decides to splurge and get himself a new pair of athletic shoes -- "Assassins," deluxe sneakers that come with built-in pedometers, custom water bottles, and vanity license plates stamped with the owner's name. However, Homer's new shoes don't last long -- Santa's Little Helper, the family dog, finds them and quickly chews them up. Santa's Little Helper has not been making many friends around the Simpson household lately; he's also destroyed the heirloom quilt that Marge (voice of Julie Kavner) has had in her family for six generations, as well as making short work of Homer's breakfast and special macadamia nut cookies. Homer and Marge think it's time to get rid of Santa's Little Helper, but Bart (voice of Nancy Cartwright) loves the dog, and he lobbies for obedience school instead. Bart soon discovers that his dog doesn't fare much better in school than he does, and it looks like Santa's Little Helper may be drummed out of the Simpson household. Meanwhile, Lisa contracts the mumps and uses her free time to help create a new family quilt and catch up on her back issues of Non-Threatening Boys Magazine. Tracy Ullman, whose variety series first launched the Simpsons characters in a series of animated shorts, makes a vocal cameo as Emily Winthrop, the owner and operator of Winthrop's Canine College. Bart's Dog Gets An F first aired on March 7, 1991.
