I can't run in flip-flops
12 November 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

Bart starts designing T-shirts that go down very well in this funny episode of the show from the 16th series.

What's great about the show at this point is that it has such depth in terms of the supporting characters, that Apu or Flanders can pop up, as they both do here, have a big joke, and then not be in the rest of the episode.

I liked also that Homer wasn't a complete idiot, and that there was a nice heartfelt moment between him and Bart at the end.

Another decent episode.
