Storyline

When vending machines are installed in the school Bart becomes addicted to junk food and his size balloons as he is declared to be morbidly obese. The family decide to send him to a fat camp to lose weight but it costs money,so they turn the house into a back-packers' hostel,where they are abused by German student guests. Eventually Bart kicks the habit and destroys the machines,breaking them open to collect the coins,which he uses for the fat camp bill as the Simpsons kick the rude back-packers out of their house.

The Heartbroke Kid
4 September 2007 | by (United States florida) – See all my reviews

This episode is Hilarius. Thats funny three weeks later when Bart Simpson was fat when they did the theme for the Simpsons part in this episode. Thats Hilarius in The Scracthy and Ictchy show Ictchy tricked Scratchy by putting a type of bomb in Scratchey's heart when Itchey took out the heart then put it back in then the funeral started after that the funeral blow ed up the cats. This episode happens when Bart Simpson ate to many candy from the candy machine then Bart Simpson gets exercises because Bart Simpson will never ever eat candy again. This episode is Hilarius you will like this one except when Bart Simpson is fat.
