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.

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.

Everyone cheered.

“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.

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.

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 neopolitan!” Homer yelled.

“But I only like chocolate.” said Bart from another room.

He goes off to buy some more.

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!”

“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.

“Here is a super stuffed mega taco.” said Selma.

“Mmmmmmm! Delicious...” said Patty.

“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. 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?!

"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.

Homer arrived home.

“I’m hooooome!” Homer said like in a sitcom.

“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.

At home after Patty and Selma leave, the news comes on and the top story is Krusty being arrested and the security tape of him robbing the Kwik-E Mart.

“No!” Bart cried in disbelief.

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 but 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.

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.

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. 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.

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.

Bart convinces Lisa to help him and they see the security tape again. 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. The robber is also reading a copy of the Reader's Digest magazine. Krusty is illiterate. 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. 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 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. 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. 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!" He finally swears revenge on Bart. “I’ll get you for this Bart! If it’s the last thing I do!”

Bart gulps.

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.

The end!
