Storyline

Bart arranges for Krusty to perform at a comedy festival where his old-fashioned gags go down very badly alongside more modern comics. Bart takes the disillusioned clown home where Krusty is appalled by all the merchandise bearing his name and relaunches himself as a critic of the consumer society and its greed.

Quotes

Bart Simpson: [to Jay Leno] Anyway, don't you have some advice for Krusty?
Jay Leno: Well, these days, people like observational humor about things they deal with in everyday life.
Krusty the Clown: Oh, yeah. You mean like when your lazy butler washes your sock garters and they're still covered with schmutz?
Jay Leno: Well, kind of, but more universal. And maybe lose the "me so solly" bit.
Bart Simpson: Hey, whoa, whoa. Let's not tamper with a classic.
Krusty the Clown: Shut up, kid. Come on, Leno. Tamper, teach, impart.
