Storyline

Bart is caught shop-lifting a video game from a store. He is barred from the store, but when Marge visits it with Bart in tow, the gung-ho store detective tells her of her son's misdemeanor and they grow apart. Eventually, Bart gives her a Christmas present, which she fears he has stolen, but when she discovers it is a framed picture of himself paid for in full, she is overjoyed, and gives him a video game, though sadly it is a golf instruction video, and not the game he desperately wanted.

Trivia

It is never revealed which console Bonestorm is on. However, the controller Milhouse use resembles the 6 button Genesis Controller and the game cartridge looks alike the Genesis game cartridges so it can be true that the game is released on Sega Genesis. Also the game "Bonestorm" resembles "Mortal Kombat" in its blood and violence. See more »

Quotes

Homer: How could you? Haven't you learned anything from that guy that gives those sermons in church? Captain What's-his-name. We live in a society of laws, why do you think I took you to see all those Police Academy movies? For fun? Well I didn't hear anybody laughing. Did you? Except at that guy who made sound effects. Vroom. Beep. Honk. Honk. Ha-ha. Where was I? Oh yeah, stay out of my booze.

This Simpsons episode changed my life!
30 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the Simpson's Christmas specials. It has a very potent anti-shoplifting message. It shows heavy effect it has on the family of shoplifter. I especially loved how defensive the parents were against the security guard's accusations of Bart's theft. It was very realistic. It made me wonder why the security guard didn't catch the others boys. He was clearly watching the cameras, since he caught Bart right away. Their flaunting of their stolen goods was what prompted Bart to steal in the first place. I saw this episode when I was six years old. It's powerful message stuck with me for over twenty years. This episode is one of the reasons I have never shoplifted. That and my integrity is worth more than anything that I can fit in my pocket via stealing. I recently re-watched it, and I have to say the story and animation has held up very well.
