Whose a good Addict?! Whose a good Addict?! You are, yes you are! Hello Guy dogs and … Female dogs,
Whether you like man’s best friend or not, dogs have learned a lot since their original Wolf counterparts. I would have had this written sooner but my dog ate my tablet. Now Sit, no need to beg, I’m going to give you a treat (this Throwback):
“Barts Dog Gets an F”
Santa’s Little Helper needs help so Bart takes him to a training school. This is going to be RUFF!
March 7th (not the K-9th) 1991, Season 2 Episode 16, the 29th episode of The Simpsons
FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING: Bernice Hibbert
There are also characters and items that appeared for the first time that Could come into TSTO in the future maybe. OH THE POSSIBILITIES:
Some previously requested Characters: Emily Winthrop (but since voiced by Tracey Ullman it’s unlikely she’ll be voiced in the game) and the Training School. Hibbert’s kids (for a little diversity, but they don’t offer much more than that).
Possible Skins: Casual Sweater Hibbert, Mr. Universe exercise Ned (which looks similar to his 4hr task so maybe this one is a pass), and Santa’s Little Helper with chain leash.
Possible NPCs: green bug, ducks, Martin’s dog with book balanced on it’s head, (I know EA can make NPCs out of anything and so maybe, maybe) Bouvier Family quilt patterns -like Tobacco King etc. and yellow pages ad characters.
Possible Events: dog/pet training event
Characters and Things I didn’t mention because I personally have no interest in them joining the game Don’t Mention It: magazine salesman, talk show Joe, other dogs and dog owners (that I haven’t mentioned before), soap opera couple and priest, sneaker salesman (that looks familiar), other sneaker store people, Cookie Colossvs Hawaiian sample girl, farmer, since the stores were inside a mall I’m not listing them (but I might like the Cookie Colossvs statue as a decoration).
Some other things to think about:
Lisa had the Mumps, which she got over fairly quickly (which is plausible) but it is highly contagious and no one else got it. Marge can thread a needle just by tossing it in the air, she should go on a talent show because she would win 🙂 Lisa is an insanely talented quilter considering she just picked up the skill.
Troy McClure had a different voice (in a quick channel change moment).
The cost for the Assassin sneaker is $125. One of the shoe sections (in the store) was “street crime”. I also noticed that Ned’s right sneaker didn’t say “assassin” but “nissassa” yet his vanity-(Ned)-plate was read correctly.
Why was the Cookie Colossvs (Greek spelling and theme) shop have a sample girl dressed in Hawaiian garb?
My Pointless Opinion: A cute episode and seeing Santa’s Little Helper’s point of view makes me wonder how other animals and pets might understand us (Human species). It is amazing the amount of time and energy that was put into the names of yellow-page businesses and numbers that appear so very briefly that you’ll need to freeze frame to read them all, which not even I did (I read a few). As per usual there are more images that I wished to use (like the black and white SLH point of view stuff) and other things but you should check out the episode yourself because there are other good moments.
So in the end when SLH obeys, was that through all Bart’s hard work or the opposite? perhaps it was all the fun and play that got SLH to want to follow direction. I like to think animals understand us more than they let on and they are just furry jerks :p teaching takes time and love and some people can do it better than others. 🙂

Do you remember this episode? What was your favorite moment? Any of the Possibilities that you Really do/don’t like? Did you catch some of the mini-movie spoofs (mostly musical)? Do you own a pet (is it trained? What’s the worst damage it has done?)? Ever own a dog or wish to have one? Ever have the mumps? What do you think the best training methods are? Can you imagine a world without Pets? Sound off in the comments and have a wild journey back to your current space/time :p
