Very Amusing Episode!
15 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the thirteenth episode of the third season of the Simpsons and once again, it's a brilliant episode. Basically the moral of the story is don't prank people, because it will usually go wrong. And we get to see the hilarious consequences that Bart creates for creating a prank on Springfield. Sting was a good guest star and I loved the parody on turning the charity song, "We Are the World" into "We're Sending Our Love Down Into The Well."

In this episode, "Radio Bart," Bart gets a microphone for his birthday and he decides to use it as a prank. He makes up this guy named Timmy O'Toole and he is trapped down the well which causes Springfield to try and help him. But when Bart accidentally falls down the well, the whole town decides to leave him down there.

Overall, this is an excellent episode, and one that should have won that Emmy award. But nonetheless, it's very entertaining and one of the best episodes this season. Another episode that shows the extent of Marge's and Homer's love for their boy. I rate this episode 9/10.
