The Simpsons: How Munched is That Birdie in the Window

When a pigeon flies through the Simpsons’ home and suffers a broken wing, Bart makes it his duty to care for the bird – whom he names Ray – and nurse it back to health.
When Ray is ready to fly, Homer decides to enter him in a bird race when Danica Patrick (guest voicing as herself) appears to him in a dream. Things don’t go according to plan, however, when Santa’s Little Helper swallows Ray.
Worried that Bart needs some help getting over the loss, Marge and Homer take him to a therapy session with Dr. Thurston (guest voice Weisz), who advises that the only cure for Bart’s blues is to give away the family dog. But when the Simpsons visit the pup’s new home, a shock causes them to rethink their decision

Episode Notes
Chalkboard Gag:

“A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” is as good as “A Charlie Brown Christmas”

Couch Gag:

The Simpsons enter the living room to find Professor Frink sitting on the couch.
He pulls out a ray gun and zaps the Simpsons causing them to shrink. They find themselves in a sea of carpet threads and narrowly escape getting stepped on by Grandpa.
Homer finds and takes a bite from a discarded tortilla chip after which Marge tosses aside.
They make a run for it only to be spotted by Snowball, who licks her lips at the sight of the pint size Simpsons.
Snowball chases them into a nearby mouse hole where the all sit on a large piece of cheese only to discover it is bait in a mousetrap.
Homer shouts D'oh and sets off the trap pinning down the family.
