Storyline

When Homer inadvertently humiliates Bart in front of a stadium crowd, Marge encourages Homer to enroll in a fathering enrichment class taught by therapist Dr. Zander. Shocked to learn that Homer often strangles Bart for mischievous behavior, Dr. Zander conducts a series of treatments with the help of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to teach Homer what it feels like to be young and small. But when Bart learns that the therapy sessions have transformed Homer into a pushover, he takes advantage of Homer and becomes a school bully. Hoping therapy could also cure Bart of his bullying habits, Marge enlists Dr. Zander's help to patch their relationship. Written by Fox Publicity

Terrific episode with Paul Rudd as Dr. Zander and Karen-Abdul jaber as himself,
19 April 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Love Is A Many Strangled Thing is a great Simpsons episode with two terrific guest stars lending in their voices.Paul Rudd and Karen-Abdul Jabar as Dr. Zander and himself.

After terribly embarrassing Bart at a baseball game when he keeps tickling him eventually make Bart soil his pants,Homer is forced by Marge to take a parenting class.Homer eventually brings up to Dr. Zander that he commonly strangles Bart.Dr. Zander is devastated so he gets basketball player Karen-Abdul Jaber to dress up as Homer and strangle Homer dressed up as Bart so he will understand what Bart is going through.

IT works but Homer starts to become scared of Bart and Homer lets him do anything around him without a punishment.
