SSR #29: “Bart’s Dog Gets An F”

Santa’s Little Helper, the Simpson family mutt, has been with our family since the very first episode. This means we’ve been familiar with the dog for almost thirty episodes now, and aside from his first appearance, we haven’t really had much of a focus on him. He went with Bart when the boy was running away from his family in “Bart vs. Thanksgiving,” and helped Bart with some mini-golf practice in “Dead Putting Society,” but now it’s time for the lovable canine to get an episode of his own, in “Bart’s Dog Gets an F,” an episode title that should be pretty familiar considering the title of Season 2’s opener; “Bart Gets an ‘F.’”
