Storyline

Against Marge's wishes, the family stays up for a movie adaptation of "Noah's Ark," which turns out to be a very long (and bombastic) Troy McClure adaptation. The movie runs all night, and a very tired Bart and Lisa head off to school while Homer calls in sick, claiming that his family came down with smallpox. At school, Bart and Lisa are participating in a Model United Nations Club meeting (which doesn't go very well) before leaving for an excursion. During the trip, the children's antics cause an accident; Otto was trying to brake to avoid a steep hill, and when he finally is able to slam on the brakes, the juice from a grapefruit (which had been lodged beneath the brake pedal) squirts into Otto's eyes, blinding him and causing him to steer the bus off a high suspension bridge. The bridge plunges into a river. Otto swims away "for help," but is swept away by a tidal wave; he is later rescued by Chinese fishermen. The schoolchildren, meanwhile, escape the bus and are washed ashore on... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

One of the Most Unique Episodes of the Ninth Season,
24 February 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Das Bus is a terrific Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and loads of very funny scenes. It is easily one of my favourite episodes of the ninth season, it is very different and there is still today no other episode of the series quite like it. Seeing all the main kids of the Simpsons struggling to cope with a new life as they are stranded on an island was a lot of fun, we get to see all the very different personalities clash, and it even shows a very human side to characters whose lines are usually just comic relief. I also enjoyed the side story, it was funny and takes us away from the rather serious events in the main plot, I liked seeing Homer trying to make money off the internet, back in a time when this was still a new and strange thing. A great episode and certainly one of the finest of the ninth season, Das Bus is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

After a big innocent on a drive to a school tour, the kids become stranded on an island, and struggle to cope with their new life together.
