Mainly Funny!
23 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The sixteenth episode in the second season of the Simpsons is a solid and rather funny episode. There are some touching moments, but this episode focuses on what it's like to train pets and have them become the creatures that we love. The guest voice is Tracey Ullman and she is formidable as the head of the obedience school featured in this episode.

In this episode, "Bart's Dog Gets an F," Santa's Little Helper chews up the family's heirloom and eats Homer's cookies which angers both Homer and Marge. They threaten to give him away unless Bart takes him to obedience school to properly train the dog.

Overall, this is a funny episode but also touching on the way it depicts friendship of man vs. dog. It's not the greatest episode by any means, but still a rather good one in the second season. I rate this episode 9/10.
