Santa's Little Helper and his mate She's the Fastest have twenty-five puppies but they are unhappy to be separated for sale so Burns bids for all of them and when the family refuses, sensing evil intentions, he steals them to kill and make a coat for himself. He even sings a song 'See My Vest' to celebrate the fact. However Bart and Lisa rescue the puppies and eventually Burns buys them to breed for racing. Written by

When Bart and Lisa go down the laundry chute, Lisa removes Bart's shoes and socks and throws his socks down the chute to get the puppies to go down and escape Mr. Burns.
