When Homer is searching for food because of a bag boy strike, he finds an old box of animal crackers and discovers that he won a trip to Africa 30 years ago by finding a golden giraffe. When confronting the company who used to make these crackers, but isn't even selling food anymore, they refuse at first, but after Homer hits his eye on a sharp corner on the cracker box they give Homer and his family a free trip to Africa. In Africa, the Simpsons experience a series of events: dancing tribal dance, going on safari, but after being chased by a hippo they are saved by a monkey scientist, and they reveal that the scientist are only using the monkeys to run a diamond mine.
