  • One of my Top 3 favorite episodes from the first two seasons of The Simpsons.

    This episode is great. Homer and Bart have good chemistry together and Homer really starts becoming the stupid dumbass we would grow to love during the Golden Age of the series (not the annoying jerkass he's slowly devolving into now). The plot is really simplistic: Bart gives Mr. Burns some of his (rare) blood so Mr. Burns can live and in return Burns gives the family a thank you card. Homer, angered that he didn't get any money, writes him an insulting letter and tries to retreive it after Bart accidentally mails. This episode is a fine example of how The Simpsons can pull comedy from any storyline.
