SSR #21: “Bart the Daredevil”

Introduction:
Bart Simpson has done a lot of crazy things, but now he is going to stare danger right in the face with the next episode of Season 2, “Bart the Daredevil.” This is a pretty iconic episode of Season 2 and the series in general, mainly due to the final setting of the episode and certain gag that gets shown and referenced a number of times throughout the entire show’s duration.

SSR #20: “Bart vs. Thanksgiving”

Introduction:
We had a Christmas special in Season 1 and a Halloween special in Season 2, so it’s not surprising that the Simpson family is going to tackle another one of the classic American holidays in the form of Thanksgiving. An interesting thing to note is that they have not touched the Thanksgiving holiday very much, if at all, since this episode (at least not to my immediate recollection anyway). I suppose Christmas is easier to make a story with and Halloween is such an annual tradition and fun story creation for the writing team, so it makes some sense in the long run that not many extra stories have come out of this holiday. With all that being said though, let’s get this thing started and take a look at “Bart vs. Thanksgiving.”
