The Simpsons: Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelts

Principal Skinner challenges superintendent Gary Chalmers to take over Bart’s education after one of Bart’s pranks leads to a school fundraiser debacle. Chalmers takes an unconventional approach to teaching American history which sparks a fascination in President Teddy Roosevelt.

Encouraged by Bart’s educational renaissance, Chalmers takes Bart and his band of “Rough Riders” on an overnight excursion to Springfield Forest, but after a minor accident, the school administration fires Chalmers for taking the boys on an unauthorized field trip.

Determined to get Chalmers’ job back, Bart and the boys hold the school hostage until the administration reinstates Chalmers, and they stand up for the teacher who made a meaningful impact

Episode Notes
Chalk Board Gag:

It's not too early to speculate about the 2016 election

Couch Gag:

The couch gag for tonight's episode was specially created by artist John K. (John Kricfalusi), in the style of his best known creation, “Ren & Stimpy”.

It opens with the Simpsons on the couch and Homer shouts “BEER!”
Marge gets up and walks to the kitchen to which Homer says, “I love to watch that woman get beer”.
Bart's eyes bug out and reaches under the couch for a whoopee cushion which he places under Homer.
He sits on it and shouts & strangles Bart only to have his brain pop out of his head.
Homer pours beer into the hole while babbling incoherently as Maggie crawls by.

A credit of "Special Guest Voice" was given due to actual audio of Theodore Roosevelt used in this episode.
