  • Lisa spends a lot of time preparing a centerpiece for the table at Thanksgiving. Bart tries to remove it from the table and in the process throws it into the fireplace. Bart is sent to his room but soon sneaks out and embarks on a Thanksgiving adventure


    This is a good episode of the The Simpsons but it's not one of the best because it recycles a very old formula of Thanksgiving dinner being ruined. This has been done an infinite number of times on an infinite number of shows. Either it's family quarrels or a series of mishaps that ruin Thanksgiving dinner. I think it's time to put this tired old formula out to pasture. The second half of the episode, where Bart embarks on his journey with Santa's Little Helper, does improve this episode slightly.
