Upset by stinging remarks at a comedy roast Krusty the clown turns for comfort to his father who promptly dies on him but there is little sympathy for him in the cut and thrust world of show biz and, after a dream in which he meets his father in Jewish heaven, he decides to retire and open an animal sanctuary. Fortunately the ever loyal Bart has a way of showing him that his father respected him and loved his jokes whilst Lisa's over-concern for Homer's safety pays off.
