Storyline

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 don @ minifie-1

Falling down a well--Simpsons' style
31 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is a true gem from season 3. The episode begins with Homer giving Bart a Superstar Celebrity Microphone. He's not excited initially but Bart eventually figures out a use for it: pranks. Bart's pranks with the microphone continue to escalate until all of Springfield is getting duped.

Sting guest stars very effectively in this episode. One of my favorite moments is the song "We're Singing Our Love Down the Well". Put Krusty, Sideshow Mel, Rainier Wolfcastle, and Sting together on a parody of songs like "We Are the World" and you've got comedy magic. The most laughs are had there and in the town's handling of "Timmy" and Bart's predicament in my opinion.

Check out this episode. If you've already seen it, still take another look. This is a good one.
