Storyline

Bart disappoints Marge yet again by his appalling history grades and the school psychiatrist reckons that unless he shapes up, he must sit the fourth grade again next year. But if he can successfully pass the history paper one last time he will be clear. Since Martin refuses to help, Bart prays for a miracle - which comes in the form of a snow storm which closes the school and gives him extra revision time. Written by don @ minifie-1

Awesome Episode
31 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bart Gets an F is an awesome episode. This episode is one of many favorites like Bart The Daredevil, Deep Space Homer, The Computer Wore Menace Shoes, The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson and many others. In this episode Bart is constantly underachieving in school. Due to Bart's underachieving he is faced with the possibility of flunking the 4th grade and therefore having to repeat fourth grade. To pass fourth grade Bart must pass a history test. This is a great episode where you are on Bart's side and want to see him succeed. This episode also has some good dreamlike sequences and a song as well. So overall Bart Gets an F is an awesome early season 2 episode.
