Storyline

Principal Skinner challenges superintendent Gary Chalmers to take over Bart's education after one of Bart's pranks leads to a school fundraiser debacle. Chalmers takes an unconventional approach to teaching American history which sparks a fascination in President Teddy Roosevelt. Encouraged by Bart's educational renaissance, Chalmers takes Bart and his band of "Rough Riders" on an overnight excursion to Springfield Forest, but after a minor accident, the school administration fires Chalmers for taking the boys on an unauthorized field trip. Determined to get Chalmers' job back, Bart and the boys hold the school hostage until the administration reinstates Chalmers, and they stand up for the teacher who made a meaningful impact.

Chalmers takes care of Barts education,
24 November 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Bart Stops To Smell The Roosevelts is a great Simpsons episode with a good storyline and great humor,I really enjoyed how they gave a recurring character,Superintendent Chalmers,a main role in the episode and also the episode ended on a good strong joke,the joke about Theodore Roosevelt and Night At The Museum,i enjoyed that they used a recording of Theodore Roosevelt in a scene and even gave credit in the end credits.

Principal Skinner has had it with Bart,so Superintendent Chalmers decides to take over Barts education,he decides to teach him about President Theodore Roosevelt,and Barts friends get involved because of what and inspiring teacher he is.
