It's time to organize the annual school play and the senior students propose a musical revue. The principal, Mr. Hampton, agrees with the idea and Helen Crump is put in charge of the production. All goes well until Mr. Hampton drops in on a rehearsal and realizes they have a segment on rock and roll and modern dancing. He doesn't understand their music and their dancing and cancels the show. Helen isn't too pleased and has to find a way to change his mind. She sets out to prove to him that kids today are no different that they were when he was their age. Written by garykmcd

Never one of my favorite episodes, but it has grown on me over the years. Homer and Estelle--does anybody know a Homer or Estelle who doesn't carry an O2 tank?--are squeaky clean enough to warm the heart of the most heartless person. The episode has its funny moments: Floyd rhapsodizing about The Mikado to Goober's unbelieving ears; Ms. Vogel's unflinching admiration for Samuel Morse and the explorer Balboa, so beloved of the benighted natives whom he gently schooled in the path of righteousness; Principal Harmon throwing a hissy fit about the evils of modern dancing; and, speaking of dancing, that doofus's manic gyrations stage-left in the epilogue. Andy's looks of disbelief at the perceived out-datedness of the play are priceless. And yet another of Goober's Cary Grant impersonations into the bargain.
