Bart has a big outburst at a funeral for Homer's dead Vegas wife. He is therefore brought to a doctor who prescribes him a drum kit to focus his energy positively. Lisa brings him to a jazz club, but then ends Lisa's dream to become the best jazz musician. Bart joins a famous jazz duo and makes it a trio while Lisa starts caring for stray and outcast animals. But this plan turns bad when a tiger bites Bart and he is unable to drum. A benefit concert is held to raise the money for a surgery that could save his new hobby, but instead, he uses the money for a lost animal shelter in Lisa's name. Written by Anonymous

Bart becomes a jazz sensation when this has always been LIsa's dream.

Lisa ends up adopting a lot of animals.

The animal joke actually was rather amusing, but it is a joke that has never been played out extensively as Homer or Bart's stupidity have been done, which is a shame.

There could be an entire episode of how LIsa can't save all the animals but the show has never done it.

It's really getting very difficult to even focus on episodes of this show anymore, they are so repetitive and predictable.

The Simpsons is essentially doing what Scooby Doo or the Flintstones did, but while those two shows would leave the air and be retooled in a later incantation, The Simpsons has just made one very long run.

It seems unlikely that there will be a rediscovery of this show by future generations, because #1, the jokes will have to be explained when they are from movies and TV shows or dealing with current events, and #2, 'suggestive' material will be deleted left and right.
