    Santa's Little Helper finds a greyhound girlfriend and becomes the father of a huge litter of yelping puppies. Even though the puppies are cute and lovable, the Simpsons are forced to give them away. Enter Mr. Burns, who agrees to take the litter, secretly scheming to use their pelts to make a fur tuxedo. When Bart and Lisa discover Burns' true intentions, they break into the old man's mansion and try to rescue the puppies. After a confrontation with Burns and Smithers, Bart and Lisa convince them that the puppies should be spared and Mr. Burns agrees. Instead of using their fur for clothing, the old man turns them into racing dogs and makes millions of dollars.moreless

He finds another greyhound there and humps her in front of everyone. The family decides to bring her home. The two dogs quickly fall in love. Santa's Little Helper's 'love' has 25 puppies, but 25 puppies are too much for the Simpson family. They spoil an important dinner party.

  • This episode is hilariously funny. This may be the reason why you can't hait Mike Scully.

    9.9
    I watched this episode on my Season 6 of The Simpsons on my DVD. People always complain about Mike Scully in showrunning The Simpsons but never talk about his outstanding writing when someone else is showrunning like David Mirkin here with Bob Anderson's outstanding directing.



    This episode of the Simpsons is just to funny to be true. Its about Santa's Little Helper having all this energy then finally releafes his energy on a dog at a racetrack. (Family Guy copies off this seen a few years later). Its great seeing all these dogs that the mother of the dogs gets pregnant with. You think they would do this 101 dolmations gag with hours going by after 24 and then goes the Simpson family 25. The family needs to get rid of the dogs but dosent want to give it to Burns so he steals them and Lisa and Bart tries getting them back and we hear Mr. Burns sing which Harry Shearer disered an emmy for but didn't get it. What turns out Burns dosent shoot the dogs and keeps them theri is anouther gag at the end of the episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The puppies are named: Rover, Fido, Rex, Spot, Rover II, Fido II, Rex II, Cleo, Dave, Jay, Paul, Branford, Dave II, Jay II, Paul II, Branford II, Sleepy, Dopey, Grumpy, Donner, Blitzen, Grumpy II, King, Queenie, Prince and The Puppy Formerly Known As Prince. This adds up to 26 rather than "Two Dozen and One" greyhounds.

    • The scene where Grandpa answers the phone, the portrait of Homer and Marge on the wall shows how they looked when they were first introduced on The Tracey Ullman Show.

    • She's the Fastest is #8 at the race track the same as Santa's Little Helper in the first episode, "Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire."

    • Goof: There are 26 puppies eating from doggie dishes rather than 25.

  • QUOTES (23)

    • Marge: All right, who broke my vase?
      Lisa: Who took all my test papers off the refrigerator and torn them up?
      Homer: Who spread garbage all over Flanders' yard before I had a chance to?

    • Reverend Lovejoy, Army Sargent and IRS Director: A toast to the Simpsons!
      Army Sargent: And to the delectable turkey. (The turkey starts to move) That's walking around the table?
      Reverend Lovejoy: Oh dear Lord! It's a demon bird!

    • (Marge walks down to the basement and sees Homer's shadow dangling)

      Marge: Homer! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, NO!!!

      (Hanging from rafter, Homer bats away at light bulb)

      Benson: (grunts) Marge, you know that batting this light bulb is the only thing that cheers me up after giving away those Million Dollar greyhounds!

    • Marge: Now, I know we love the puppies very much, but I think they're getting to be a problem.
      Bart: Yeah, they ate all my socks. I had to wear Lisa's to school today.
      Homer: How do you explain the culottes, boy?
      Bart: Well, I have to coordinate don't I?

    • Homer: Marge. You know that batting this lightbulb is the only thing that cheers me up after getting rid of those million dollar greyhounds.

    • Lisa: But they're our puppies! You stole them from us!
      Mr. Burns: Here's a phone. Call somebody who cares.
      (Lisa starts dialing 911)
      Mr. Burns: Gimmie that!

    • Lisa: (gasp) He's going to make a tuxedo out of our puppies!
      Bart: (in tune to "See My Vest") Na-na-na, na-na-na, na-n-naa!
      Lisa: Bart!
      Bart: Sorry. You gotta admit, it's catchy.

    • Chief Wiggum: I'm sorry kids, I don't think we'll ever find your greyhounds. Maybe Mr. Burns will sell you one of the twenty-five he got last night.

    • Grampa: We could use a new pet over at the home seeing how we accidentaly killed that smart mouthed bird.

    • Homer: Your mother and I have been thinking about giving the puppies away.
      Bart / Lisa: Nooooooooooo!!!
      Homer: Mainly your mother!
      Lisa: Is that what we do in this family, when somebody becomes an inconvenience we just get rid of them?
      (scene changes to the Retirement Castle, where Grampa is in his room, lonely)
      Grampa: (picks up phone, which didn't ring) Hello! Is anybody there? Awww...

    • Marge: This house stinks! You're not just putting the new newspapers over the old ones, are you?
      Homer: Do you have a better idea?

    • Homer: Hmm, I guess Bart's not to blame. Well, he's lucky too because it's spanking season and I got a hankering for some spankering!

    • Pet Store Employee: Hmm... let me try a canine-human mind meld. It's an incredibly rare power possessed only by me and three other clerks at this store... (starts rubbing Santa's Little Helper's head) "Ruff! Ruff! I'm bored and restless... ruff... need change of life, like imported leather leash... blue contact lenses... 200 volt shock-training collar."

    • See My Vest Lyrics:
      Smithers: Are you sure you want to go through with this, Sir? You have an awfully full wardrobe as it is.
      Mr. Burns: Yes, but not completely full, for you see... (Singing)
      Some men hunt for sport
      others hunt for food.
      The only thing I'm hunting for
      is an outfit that looks good.
      See... my... vest! See my vest!
      Made from real gorilla's chest.
      Feel this sweater.
      There's no better than authentic Irish Setter.
      See this hat? T'was my cat.
      My evening wear - vampire bat.
      These white slippers are albino
      African endangered rhino.
      Grizzly bear underwear.
      Turtles' necks, I've got my share.
      Beret of poodle, on my noodle it shall rest.
      Try my red robin suit!
      It comes one breast or two!
      See my vest. See me vest. See my vest.
      Like my loafers? Former gofers.
      It was that, or skin my shoafers.
      But a greyhound fur tuxedo would be best.
      So let's prepare these dogs.
      Maid: Kill two for matching clogs!
      Mr. Burns (Singing): See my vest. See my vest. Oh please, won't you see my vest?
      (spoken) I really like the vest.

    • Bart: Hey, a really small dog just fell out of Santa's girlfriend.
      Marge: Oh, she's having babies! Oh, sorry girl. I thought you were just getting fat.

    • Bart: Santa's Little Helper doesn't want to do anything ever since this bitch moved in.
      Marge: Bart, don't ever say that word again.
      Bart: But that's what she is. I looked it up.
      Marge: Well, I'm going to write the dictionary people. It seems like a mistake.

    • Mr. Burns: (Referring to the puppies.) They're so wretchedly adorable.

    • Homer: Oh, so that's what was wrong with the little fella. He misses casual sex!

    • Lisa: What's Santa's Little Helper doing to that dog?
      Marge: Uh-oh…
      Bart: It looks like he's trying to jump over her, but he can't quite make it. Come on boy, you can do it!

    • Homer: (Referring to Santas's Little Helper) Don't worry! We'll catch him or run him over trying.

    • TV Announcer: Your cable TV is experiencing difficulties. Please do not panic. Resist the temptation to read or talk to loved ones. Do not attempt sexual relations, as years of TV radiation have left your genitals withered and useless.
      Chief Wiggum: (looking under sheets) Well, I'll be damned.

    • Marge: I'm sure these things didn't destroy themselves, now did they?
      Homer: (scared) Did they?!

    • Reverend Lovejoy: See you in Hell! From Heaven.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Blackboard Joke: The Good Humor man can only be pushed so far.
      Couch Gag: Everyone chases the couch as it and the back wall move backwards down a portal a la the 1981 film Time Bandits.

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Lady and the Tramp
      The scene with Santa's Little Helper and his girlfriend having the spaghetti kiss is a reference to Disney's 1955 film, Lady and the Tramp.

    • Episode Title: "Two Dozen and One Greyhounds"
      The episode's title and plot are a based upon the 1961 animated Disney film, One Hundred and One Dalmatians. Also, during the "See My Vest" song, a maid appears who looks very similar to the nanny in said film.

    • Beauty and the Beast
      Mr. Burns' song and dance number, "See My Vest," is a parody to the song "Be Our Guest" sang by Lumiere the candleabra from the 1991 Disney film Beauty and the Beast. Mrs. Potts even makes an appearence while Mr. Burns sings.
