The chalkboard gag is "They are laughing at me, not with me,"
"I'm laughing with Bart." said Oscar.
Bart and Lisa are watching Krusty the Clown. He is humiliating his Coworker, Sideshow Bob as usual.
"Now kids, who do you love?" Krusty asks.
"Krusty!" Bart and Lisa yell joyfully.
“How much do you love me?” Krusty asked.
“With all our hearts!” said Bart and Lisa.
"And what would you do if I had to go away?" Krusty asked laughing.
"We'd kill ourselves!" Bart replies to the TV.
Marge sighed exasperated. He shouldn't be encouraging them like that... she thought.
Oscar likes clowns.
"Haaaaawwwww! Shiny nosed clown!" He squealed.
On the Krusty the clown show this evening it was a little girl’s birthday.
“Now it is little Suzy’s birthday today! Now Suzy what is your birthday wish? To hear Sideshow Bob play his slide whistle?” asked Krusty. Sideshow Bob played his slide whistle. “Or shoot Sideshow Bob out of a cannon!” Everyone cheered at that and Sideshow Bob pleaded.
“Shoot Sideshow Bob out of a cannon!” said the little girl who’s birthday it was.
“Hooahahahaha! They always pick that!” said Krusty. “Sorry Bob. Get in the cannon!”
“You’re doomed Sideshow Bob...” said Bart evilly. Maybe his revenge schemes were sort of justified...
Bob was put in a cannon and fired out of it when Krusty lifted the little girl to help her light the fuse. Bob flew out burnt and smouldering with soot.
"Hmmmmm! Maybe we should use more gunpowder next time. Hoooahahaha!" said Krusty.
“And now for the Itchy and Scratchy show!” said Krusty.
“They fight! They bite! They fight they bite they fight! Fight fight fight! Bite bite bite! The Itchy and Scratchy show!” The theme tune played.
The cartoon was as usual Itchy the mouse violently killing Scratchy the cat somehow. I liked the one where he turned Scratchy into a bloody sundae.
“That’s my favourite one too narrator.” said Bart.
“Hmmmmmm... how can you two enjoy such senseless violence?” Marge sighed.
“Mom, if the show was meant for grownups they would put it on prime time and have people talking about their embarrassing problems and marriage issues to Jerry or Oprah...” Bart sighed.
Itchy shot Scratchy with a fire arrow. Scratchy screamed.
"Ohgoody gumdrops!" said Lisa. Hehehehe! Gumdrops.
Homer was at work eating donuts. His station phone rang.
Marge then calls Homer to get some ice cream. He is suspicious because they have lots of ice cream still. Which he hasn't got round to eating. He overhears Bart tell Marge that Patty doesn't like ice cream. He groans at the thought of another boring slideshow of their holiday photos.
The kids groan at the thought of spending an evening with Aunt Patty and Aunt Selma.
Homer arrived home from work.
"Homer I said get ice cream..." Marge sighed.
"We have ice cream!" said Homer.
In the kitchen Homer checks the ice cream only to find Bart ate only the chocolate in all of them. “Mmmmmmm! Chocolate! D’oh! Mmmmm! Chocolate! D’oh! Mmmmmmm chocolate! D’oh!”
He puts the ice cream back saying Mmmmmm! Chocolate...
“Bart! Stop eating only the chocolate ice cream out of the Neapolitan!” Homer yelled.
“But I only like chocolate.” said Bart from another room.
He goes off to buy some more.
"Marge you're right. The boy ate only the chocolate from the Neapolitan again..." Homer sighed as he went out.
"Stop doing that! It's annoying!" Oscar snapped at Bart.
At the Kwik-E-mart Homer sees some chocolate ice cream up to quadruple chocolate flavour. “Mmmmmm! Chocolate! Oh double chocolate! Triple chocolate! Oh my god! Quadruple chocolate!”
Homer buys quadruple chocolate.
"Will that ge all Mr Homer?" Apu asked.
"And one breakfast or dessert burrito. Um I'm thinking strawberry..." said Homer.
"Here you go Mr Homer." said Apu.
Homer used the store's microwave oven to cook it.
Apu could see something was on Homer's mind.
“Mr Homer why so down?” Apu asked Homer while he ate a microwave dessert burrito. For sleuths solving this whodunnit episode pay attention to robber Krusty as he uses a microwave oven and reads a Reader’s digest magazine...
“Oh I’m just miserable because my hag like sisters in law Patty and Selma are having one of their slideshows...” Homer groaned, “or as I like to call them the gruesome twosome! Hehehe!”
Meanwhile Patty and Selma showed the bored Simpsons their slideshow of their holiday to Mexico.
Patty and Selma arrived without so much as a friendly hello.
"Oh! Eight carousels! Kids we're in for some fun!" said Marge.
"Ooooooooh!" Oscar was thinking about carousels at the fair ground.
They all watched the slideshow of Patty and Selma's vacation to Yucatan.
"I wanted eight funfair carousels...." Oscar groaned.
“Here is a super stuffed mega taco.” said Selma.
“Mmmmmmm! Delicious...” said Patty.
"And this is a taco platter." said Selma.
"Marge can I have a taco?" Oscar asked.
"No bumpkin you just had dinner." said Marge.
"Buti need tacos!" Oscar whined. "I need them or I'll explode! That happens to me sometimes..."
“Here is Patty taking a siesta.” said Selma. Patty is sleeping and snoring. She did not look very attractive...
“Eeeeeew!” Bart and Lisa groaned.
“Here is a cardboard cut out of a stereotypical cartoon Mexican man in a poncho and sombrero.” said Selma.
“Here is a house shaped like a giant bowling pin.” said Selma.
Suddenly "Krusty" at the Kwik e mart wearing a robber's eye mask and holding a gun in one hand and a bag for money in the other demands money from Apu.
“Put the money in the bag! Put it in!” The imposter Krusty yells.
“Yes sir. I am familiar with the procedure of convenience store robberies after all I do work in a convenience store.” said Apu complying.
“Ay carumba! Krusty robbing a convenience store? That reminds me of the time Spongebob robbed a bank!” said Oscar having a flashback.
“Put the money in the bag! Put it in!!” said Spongebob wearing a robber mask and trying to rob a bank.
“Awwwwwww! Spongebob is too sweet and friendly to rob a bank!” said Mrs Puff.
“I am (dolphin chirp) serious! Put the money in the bag or I’ll blast your head off!” Spongebob yelled angrily.
Oscar’s flashback ended.
"Put the money in the bag and nobody gets hurt! Now!" The false Krusty yelled holding Apu at gun point.
"Help me Mr Simpson!" Apu cried.
Homer then accidentally steps on Krusty's toe while he's trying to rob the Kwik-E-Mart.
"Ow! My toes you klutz!" Krusty yelled.
"Oh hi Krusty- Aaaaaagh!" He screams and jumps in the potato chip aisle.
Some time later.
“It is alright now Mr Homer. You can come out of my potato chips now. The time for being a hero has long since passed...” said Apu.
Homer then calls the police and makes a statement identifying the robber as Krusty the Clown.
“He had a big red nose. No bigger than that. Yeah. And long green hair sticking up like this. Yeah that.”
“Uh chief that’s the famous clown off the TV.” said Eddie.
“Yeah the one my boy likes! What’s his name, Crummy, Cruddy... Krusty!
Krusty is soon arrested at home.
He was making a cocktail when the Feds bursted in.
"Ow! Let go!" Krusty whined.
"Krusty you're under arrest for armed robbery of the Kwik-E Mart." said Wiggum.
"Is this some kind of joke?!" Krusty yelled.
"Um.... No." said Wiggum.
At the Simpsons.
"This is the town mall." said Patty. "This is just Selma taking the rolls of film to be developed."
The kids had long since fallen asleep. Marge was struggling to stay awake.
Selma angrily shook her.
"Oh!" Marge sat upright.
The police station
Homer then positively identifies Krusty after laughing at the clowns on the ID parade. On the parade are Krusty, some miscellaneous clowns of different sizes, heights and colours, Pennywise from It and a Clownja. Because why not?!
(Homer was laughing.) "Stop it! You're all hilarious! Gahahahaha!"
"Mr Simpson stop laughing and tell us who the robber is." Wiggum gets annoyed at Homer.
"But they're so funny it- Oh it was Krusty." said Homer composing himself.
“Really?! Cos that Clownja looked really shifty...” said Wiggum having some prejudice towards Oscar’s clown monster Pokemon thing Clownja.
The Clownja glared at him.
Homer arrived home.
“I’m hooooome!” Homer said like in a sitcom.
A studio audience laughed and cheered.
“Oh Goody gumdrops!” said Lisa joyfully. In canon Selma says this dryly but in my Fanon Lisa says it joyfully, because it’s hilarious for her to say something like that! Come on! Who says Oh goody gumdrops! anyway?
“Dad! You’re in luck! You just missed Aunt Patty and Selma’s slideshow!” said Bart.
"Oh good!" said Homer.
Patty and Selma frowned at him.
"Nowi want to watch the news for some reason!" said Homer.
At home after Patty and Selma leave, the news comes on.
"Tonight on Channel 6 live with Kent Brockman." said an announcement.
"Kent Brockman is on vacation. I am your anchor tonight." said some serious looking guy... "Tonight the Kwik-E-Mart was robbed."
Homer was acting shifty. "Bart you like that clown off the TV right?"
"Krusty? Yeah he's my hero." said Bart.
Homer gulped. "Um maybe you should head off to bed."
The top story is Krusty being arrested and the security tape of him robbing the Kwik-E Mart.
“No!” Bart cried in disbelief.
Marge comforted him.
Then Homer is caught on camera insulting Patty and Selma. “Or as I call them. The gruesome twosome! Hehehehe!”
Marge glares at him.
Then Homer screams when he sees Krusty after stepping on his toes and jumps in the potato chips box.
Oscar laughed hysterically.
Bart tearfully smiled a little. Okay that’s a little bit funny Oz. He thought but was upset over Krusty.
“Hmmmm! Bart time to go to bed dear...” Marge was reluctant to let Bart see the devastating news.
Bart was sobbing and rubbing his eyes.
"Sweetie don't cry. I'm sure this is all one big mistake and Krusty will turn out to be innocent." said Marge.
"I doubt it Marge. That clown is guiiiiiiltyyyy!" said Homer in a sassy manner.
Bart cried and ran off to bed.
That night he played with his talking Krusty doll.
"Hoooahahaha! You're my best friend!" He was pulling the doll's string to make it talk. "I didn't do it!"
Bart cried himself to sleep.
Everyone was watching the news. Because why wouldn't you if a big celebrity got arrested.
Kent was back from his vacation.
"Good evening, again, Springfield. Krusty the Clown, the beloved idol of countless tots, now nothing more than a common, alleged criminal. His trial, which begins tomorrow, has taken center ring in a national media circus as children of all ages from eight to eighty (Nyahahahaha! Eighty...) hang on each new development like so many Romanian trapeze artists." said Kent.
Ace, Oscar's vampire friend winced exasperated when Kent said Romanian trapeze artists.
"Ace is from Romania." Oscar explained.
"Krusty started his career as a street mime on the streets of Tupelo, Mississippi. He then climbed the three ring circus to the big top by selling pork products." said Kent.
"That's a lie!" Bart yelled.
"Down in front!" Homer yelled.
"Krusty is a devout Jew! He wouldn't touch pork!" saud Bart.
Um it's season 1 he was just a sleazy clown. You're not supposed to know he's Jewish yet...
Bart stopped to watch the documentary and for some reason Marge let him despite it being his bed time.
Bart is extremely upset because Krusty was his hero. There is then a documentary about Krusty up until his heart attack and his change in behaviour afterwards. He began to mistreat sideshows.
First up was Krusty’s heart attack. He was cooking a barbecue of various non kosher meats such as pork chops and pork sausages. Okay he hasn’t revealed he is Jewish yet but this is foreshadowing.
"Prime rost ribs. Succulent pork sausages. Honey glazed." Krusty was cooking a barbecue on stage.
Homer gargled and drooled with hunger.
Bart winced at him.
While explaining the delicious meat he was cooking Krusty suddenly succumbed to a heart attack. Probably because all the drugs he took or because Jewish God is pissed off at him for cooking non kosher meat.
“Silence sinner!! You have betrayed Yahweh! Prepare to die!” Yahweh/Jehovah boomed.
“(Pained gasp while clutching chest) I’m dying! I’m dyiiiiiing!” Krusty cried as he collapsed. Children laughed because they thought he was just acting based on how over the top his dying screams were.
Bart was traumatized.
“That’s how Tommy Cooper died. He was having a heart attack and the audience thought it was part of the act.” said Oscar.
Bart winced uncomfortable.
Then Krusty luckily recovered in hospital. However there was a change in his personality. He became bitter and short tempered around Sideshows. For example Sideshow Bob smooshed a cream pie in his face light heartedly and Krusty angrily punched him in the face, concussing him.
That night Bart is crying and playing with his talking Krusty doll. "Hooahahahaha!" it laughs. "I didn't do it!"
"I wish I could believe you Krusty!" Bart cries.
The next day is the trial. Bart notices Krusty has small feet.
He recalls the security footage. Krusty was wearing oversized clown shoes, and felt Homer step on his toes. Which he shouldn't having tiny feet.
"He's like a Chinese duchess...." said Oscar referencing Chinese foot binding.
Homer is called up as a witness and admits under oath that he reported Krusty. Bart is upset and angry at him and has to be removed from court.
The family gathers up all of Bart's Krusty merchandise to burn on the town bonfire. Bart is determined that Krusty is innocent.
"Please no! Don't burn my stuff!" Bart cried.
"I'm sorry Sweetie but you won't want to be the only kid still admiring Krusty when he gets sent down." said Marge collecting his things. Maggie was sucking a Krusty head pacifier until Marge took it from her.
"He's not getting sent down! He's innocent!" Bart cried. “And at least let me keep my doll and pjs...”
“Okay dear.” said Marge.
"These toys are just adorable." saud Oscar cooing.
Marge takes out a Krusty pacifier from Maggie's mouth. "Yes they are dear."
Bart blushed embarrassed and smiled sheepishly. "Really? You think so?"
"Yep. What happened to the Springfield's coolest bad boy?" Oscar smirked.
Bart blushed staring at the merchandise with Krusty's face all over it, it was pretty childish.
"Okay I guess that makes me a hypocrite mocking you and Lisa for liking Happy Little Elves..."
"Who'd have guessed they were inspired by an insane criminal genius?" said Narge holding a Krusty doll.
"Mom he's innocent!" Bart snapped.
That night Bart lies in bed depressed playing with his talking Krusty doll.
“Oooooooh...! Ohhhhhhhh....! Oooooooh...” it groans as he pulls on its string.
At the next day of court, Krusty is unable to read the evidence, his unpaid bills and horse racing tickets from a betting racket because he's illiterate. The jury decides he's guilty however.
"Is it a crime to be illiterate?" Krusty cried.
"Yes it is!" yelled the prosecutor.
"May I remind the prosecution to keep his prejudices against illiterate people out of my court room!" Judge Snyder yelled at the prosecutor.
"I'm sorry your honor..." sighed the prosecutor.
"Look Krusty. This little thing is B. A B." Page's Father as the district attorney sighed.
"Zzzzzzzzzzzzz!" Oscar was buzzing like a bee.
"Aaaaaaaaagh! Bees!" Homer yelled.
"Silence in court!" Judge Snyder yelled.
Meanwhile because the real suspect at the end (Sideshow Bob) does a hackneyed "Those meddling kids!" line there was a weed smoking hippy college kid with the munchies and his talking dog.
"Zoinks! Like Scoob! It looks like that Krusty was a common criminal after all!" said Shaggy.
Bart glared at him.
And there has to a bit where the hero and his sidekick are chased by the fake Krusty.
I don't know how that's possible considering the rapid response from Wiggum to arrest Krusty but it's funny.
Bart with a magnifying glass as investigating the Kwik E Mart.
"Ah hello young Columbo. Due to the recent robbery I am now taking precautions." said Apu carrying a huge shotgun.
"Hi Apu." saud Bart examining clues.
"Or perhaps you're a Young Sherlock Holmes?" said Apu.
"Apu, I'm American... We don't have Sherlock over here. We have Columbo..." said Bart.
"Hey! Watch my foot you lousy, clumsy little..." said the fake Krusty.
Bart winced at the fourth wall. "How is this poss- Zoinks!!"
Bart fled. The fake Krusty chased after him in an amusing and silly Scooby Doo Chase. Including the corridor of doors!!
Sideshow Bob took over the Krusty the clown show. But made it boring and high brow.
"Children don't fret. There will still be a home for Itchy and Scratchy. But we shall learn literature, etiquette and the lively arts..." said Sideshow Bob.
Lisa turned the TV off.
"Also she's being really unsupportive and quick to judge. Like the media when Macaulay Caukin and several other nasty, money grabbing boys falsely accused Michael Jackson of pedophilia..." said Oscar frowning.
Lisa winced as Bart in protest had all his adorable Krusty gear on. He was wearing his Krusty footed pyjamas and sucking a Krusty head pacifier and holding a Krusty doll.
"Also I'm wearing Krusty the clown diapers..." said Bart.
"I love clowns too." said Oscar holding Clownja, a cartoon jack in a box creature with a clown head.
Bart convinces Lisa to help him and they see the security tape again.
"Why do you need my help?" Lisa asked.
"Because, and I hate to admit it.... You're smarter than me."
Lisa smiled. "Thanks Bart! Sure I'll help!"
At the Kwik-E-Mart they watch the security tape.
It proves the robber can't be Krusty because he is using the store microwave oven.
Krusty can't go near a microwave oven with his pacemaker.
"So?" said Lisa.
"Lisa, use that genius brain of yours... Remember when we sent Krusty that get well card? That was because of his heart attack! Shortly afterwards he was fitted with a pacemaker." said Bart.
"People with pacemakers aren't supposed to go near microwave ovens!" Lisa gasped.
"Exactly." said Bart.
The robber is also reading a copy of the Reader's Digest magazine. Krusty is illiterate.
"Krusty can't read! He's illiterate!" said Lisa.
"Exactly. I think someone framed him." said Bart.
"Who? Does he even have any enemies?!" Lisa pondered.
Finally they notice Homer step on Krusty's toe when he was in costume. Krusty's feet are small, smaller than usual so it is impossible for him to feel anything in his oversized clown shoes.
That night, the Krusty the Clown show is taken over by Sideshow Bob and made educational.
Sideshow Bob is reading The Man in the Iron Mask. Spoilers! He's actual true king of France! His evil twin brother replaced him!
"That would be cool if Hugo swapped places with Bart." said Oscar.
Lisa decides that they should ask Sideshow Bob for help as to who may have a grudge against Krusty. However after going to his dark dressing room, Sideshow Bob laughs evilly.
“Gahahahahahaha! Ahahahahahaha!” His malevolent cackle chilled Bart’s blood as he over heard the cruel merriment and mirth chuckled from Bob’s dressing room.
Meanwhile that night Bart is in his Krusty onesie pyjamas playing with a Krusty doll making it speak.
“I’m Krusty the clown! Hooahahahaha!”
“You’re my best friend!”
“I didn’t do it!”
Bart sighed tearfully and went to sleep.
Bart and Lisa are invited on the show for free. They try to speak to Sideshow Bob, but he is busy getting ready. Finally the last piece of incriminating evidence is shown, his oversized feet.
Bart is called up to take part in Bob's new interview sketch.
Bart sees through his false polite demeanour.
Bart explains he believes Krusty is innocent and explains why, but Bob rebuttals his evidence by stating Krusty was one not to care about his health, constantly smoking cigars. And the Reader's Digest having caricatures for everyone to enjoy.
Bart frowns. I don't find em funny...
However his last line, big shoes to fill connects up the dots, Bart realizes Sideshow Bob is the robber. He rightfully accuses him and hits his foot with a mallet and explains live to everyone that Sideshow Bob's feet gave him away because the robber yelled when his foot was stepped on and only Sideshow Bob could only wear clown shoes.
"Ow! Watch it! You clumsy, lousy, stinkin..." Bob cried holding his big foot.
"Krusty has small feet. Like all good, honest people!" said Bart.
"Hey!" Clowncy, Oscar's Clown monster thing yelled. He has big red shiny clown shoes on. It is implied like Bob he has big feet. So must wear clown shoes.
The police who are watching are called out to arrest Bob for armed robbery.
Sideshow Bob is arrested and rants to the media his plan and why he framed Krusty. Because he was fed up with being humiliated by Krusty. He then yells "I could have gotten away with it, if it weren't for you meddling kids!"
Oscar smirked. "He did that silly line from Scooby Doo..."
He finally swears revenge on Bart. “I’ll get you for this Bart! If it’s the last thing I do!”
Homer and Chief Wiggum offer Krusty a grovelling apology. "We're very sorry for thinking you'd rob the Kwik e mart. It won't happen again."
"I should hope not you dingbat!" Krusty yelled at Wiggum.
"And I owe it all to one little boy who never lost faith in me..." said Krusty patting Bart's head. Bart giggled.
That night after his parents put him to bed. Bart went to sleep happy and surrounded by all of his Krusty merchandise.
