    Bart cheats on his intelligence test and is mistaken for a child genius. In order to offer him more stimulation, Marge and Homer enroll him in a school for gifted students where he is immediately made to feel like the mediocre student he is. Bart eventually bluffs his way back into Springfield Elementary by claiming he'll study his classmates but winds up confessing to everyone that he cheated. Bart's mischef is revealed in this episode as he cheats on his I.Q. test. This episode was very funny, but it is without a doubt not the best episode in the whole entire series.
