Storyline

When a pigeon flies through the Simpsons' home and suffers a broken wing, Bart makes it his duty to care for the bird - whom he names Ray - and nurse it back to health. When Ray is ready to fly, Homer decides to enter him in a bird race when Danica Patrick appears to him in a dream. Things don't go according to plan, however, when Santa's Little Helper swallows Ray. Worried that Bart needs some help getting over the loss, Marge and Homer take him to a therapy session with Dr. Thurston, who advises that the only cure for Bart's blues is to give away the family dog. But when the Simpsons visit the pup's new home, a shock causes them to rethink their decision Written by Fox Publicity

Trivia

"Itchy & Scratchy in Dogday Hellody of 1933" is a spoof of The Broadway Melody (1929). The Itchy & Scratchy version features Edward G. Robinson from Little Caesar (1931) (anachronistically firing an M16, which wasn't developed until the 1960s); Will Rogers (with lasso, paraphrasing his famous saying, "I never met a man I didn't like"); 'W.C. Fields' ("A little hair of the dog that bit me", referring to the practice of drinking alcohol as a treatment for hangover); Harpo Marx; and Bing Crosby. See more »

Not as good as most of the episodes this season but still fairly good,
19 April 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

How Mucnched Is That Birdie In The Window ? is a good Simpsons episode but it falls weak compared to the other terrific episodes this season but its still fairly good and its not the season at its worse.

A bird with a broken wing falls into The Simpsons house and when the owner wont take the bird back Bart decides to keep it and nurture it into health.When the day comes when its able to fly again Bart decides to let go,but they but feel that they became too close to say goodbye so Bart keeps him and the bird becomes a kind of email for Bart.

But when Santas Little Helper ends up eating the bird Bart becomes deeply depressed and stops talking to the dog,after advice from a therapist Marge and Homer decide to give the dog away.
