For his birthday Bart gets a microphone which can transmit through the radio and uses it to convince Springfield that a boy called Timmy O'Toole has fallen down a well, a prank which attracts a media circus until exposed as a hoax. This means that when Bart also falls down a well people are initially reluctant to dig him out. Written by
