Lisa is worried because Ronaldo, the little orphan boy she has been sponsoring in Rio De Janeiro, seems to have gone missing so the Simpsons travel to Brazil to locate him. However, shortly after they arrive, Homer is kidnapped. They find Ronaldo, now a child star because the shoes Lisa gave him have made him a very good dancer. He pays off the ransom and Homer is returned but then Bart gets eaten by an anaconda. Written by
