Storyline

After yet another prank from Bart, involving flooding the gym, principal Skinner talks to Homer and Marge and advices them to make Bart take a new behavior drug, called Focusyn. At first Bart doesn't want to take the drug, but pretty soon he doesn't mind and it actually seems to work: Bart stops playing pranks, actually pays attention in class and reads in his spare time. Good times don't last and Bart starts behaving very strange and paranoid. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The episode title is a play on "Mother's Little Helper", a song by The Rolling Stones, which in turn is a euphemism for certain prescription drugs believed to be commonly used (or abused) by middle-class women in the US and UK in the 1960s (such as barbiturate sleeping pills, amphetamine diet pills, and benzodiazepine tranquilizers).
