The Simpsons: The Front

Convinced they can write better Itchy & Scratchy scripts than the writers who currently work on the cartoon, Bart and Lisa set out to write their own shows. Meanwhile, Homer goes to his high school reunion, and when Principal Dondelinger reveals that Homer never passed remedial science, Homer goes to night school to make up the lost credit.
