Episode Summary

EDIT
Today I am A Clown
AIRED:
Maggie is locked in the bathroom and is eventually freed when Lisa goes against the norm and tries their rescue solution a second time. Then the family hears the doorbell. They find Dr. Hibbert at the door; it seems that SLH had impregnated his poodle and he turns over the puppies to the Simpson family and makes them their problem. Despite a book that says that Homer was taking SLH to be neutered, Homer was never able to complete the deed. They distribute the puppies. Lisa and Bart stop by Krusty's house and give him one of the puppies. Krusty takes the dog for a walk and finds that his star is not included on the Jewish walk of fame. He goes to complain and finds out that he was never Bar Mitzvah'd, which means he is technically not Jewish. Bart and Lisa take Krusty to see his father, who agrees to help Krusty achieve his goal. As Saturday is the Sabbath, Krusty gets Homer to replace his show on that day. Homer's replacement show is a talk show, with Moe, Lenny & Carl as his guest panelists. The replacement show becomes a success; meanwhile, Krusty works on learning his Jewish traditions. Homer's show has become so popular that the network decides to fire Krusty. Lisa wants Homer to put his power to good use. Krusty pitches the FOX network on a new show that covers his Bar Mitzvah. Meanwhile, Homer attempts to start covering topics based on Lisa's suggestions, but it becomes a ratings nightmare, resulting in his cancellation. Meanwhile on FOX, Krusty's Bar Mitzvah is a ratings bonanza, but the spectacle disappoints his father. Later at a real Jewish temple, Krusty has a real, almost serious, Bar Mitzvah.moreless
