  • Stupendous without a doubt one of the most hilarious episodes in the whole first five years of the show...

    Bart wins first prize in a wacky radio contest and becomes the proud owner of a giant elephant he names Stampy. Stampy, as you might imagine, turns out to be quite a handful for the Simpson family, but Bart loves his new pet more than anything. Homer, on the other hand, finds Stampy's upkeep too expensive and sells the elephant to an ivory dealer. Bart intervenes and sets Stampy free to go on a destructive rampage through Springfield. Eventually, Stampy finds a nice home at an animal refuge. The Simpsons are giving these episode the best humor I have erver seen in TV history, and I don't think that this type of humor will ever stop being funny for decades to come...
