Down that well!
10 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Down that well!" was yelled out by Krusty the klown during the song "we're sending our love down that well" while the so- called Timmy O'tool was trapped down a well. The song was sung in style of USA for Africa's 1985 hit "We are the world", which was also sung by a bunch of then popular singers grouped together for a charitable cause. Timmy O'tool was so-called because he was fictionalized by Bart, who made up that name and the falling down the well story as a large prank he played on the whole town. This is a typical " what goes around comes around" episode, where Bart ends up getting a taste of his own medicine. Ahh, sweet karma. The whole getting trapped down the well thing is reminiscent of the real life event of baby Jessica getting trapped down a well in Texas in October of 1987. This episode also had the "mmm...chocolate. D'oh!" joke from, guess who, Homer. And of course, there's also the "property of Bart Simpson" labels Bart made from a label maker that he got as one of his dismayed birthday presents.
