  • Bart in the Mafia.

    This is probably one of my top 15 favorite eps of all time because: it was the first Fat Tony ep, Bart was in the Mafia, and principal Skinner was thought to be murdered by Bart and the Mafia. In this ep, Bart has a horrible day, but his luck changes and after school, he crashed his skateboard in to the stairwell of the Legitimate Businessmen's Social Club, and he soon finds himself working for the Springfield Mafia and Fat Tony. He ends up becoming their bartender and errand boy. When Skinner sentences Bart to an afternoon of detention, he mysteriously disappears and the police suspect that Bart and the Mafia had something to do with it. In the end, Bart snubs the Mafia after Skinner shows up at the trial, saying that he was trapped under a pile of papers and Bart didn't do anything to him.
