  • A good way to end the first great season in Simpsons history.

    Mr. Burns is diagnosed with hypohemia and needs a double O negative blood donor. Nobody at the plant comes forward except Homer who thinks there will be a large reward involved. Bart's blood type matches Burns, so he donates some. Burns is more alive than ever and sends Bart a thankyou note and nothing else. Homer is outraged and sends a vindictive letter. Marge stops him from posting it, but Bart didn't know this and mailed it out. When Burns gets the letter he vows to make Homer miserable. He orders Smithers to have Homer beaten to a pulp, but Smithers refuses to harm the man that saved Burns' life. Mr. Burns comes to his senses, and buys them a gift; a rare Olmec Indian head statue. Bart thinks it's cool, but Homer doesn't approve of it.
