Wild Barts Can't Be Broken


Episode Info

After getting their season off to a dismal start, minor league baseball team the Springfield Isotopes pick up speed in time to make it into the playoffs, and end up winning their league's championship. Fair-weather fan Homer Simpson (voice of Dan Castellaneta) and his friends celebrate the Isotopes' big win by going on a drinking spree, followed by a destructive rampage through Springfield Elementary School. Rather than take responsibility for their actions, Homer and the guys allow the blame to be placed on the school's students, and the police establish a curfew for minors. Bart (voice of Nancy Cartwright) and Lisa (voice of Yeardley Smith) resent being punished for something they didn't do, and when a spooky horror movie called The Bloodening opens in town, they join their schoolmates in sneaking out to see it. Police Chief Wiggum (voice of Hank Azaria) catches the kids and brings them into custody, but they're not about take the situation lying down, and they hatch a scheme to blackmail their folks into lifting the curfew. "Wild Barts Can't Be Broken" was first aired on January 17, 1999, and features a vocal cameo from pop star Cyndi Lauper, who sings the national anthem at a Springfield Isotopes game.
