When Moe’s gall bladder goes on the fritz, Homer, Carl, Lenny, and Barney are forced to face the prospect of life without beer--unless Moe’s Bar’s best barflies bound from their barstools becoming bartenders to save their buddy’s bread and butter. Then, Homer drives a tank to work (that’s right…we said a tank), escalating tensions and hurl Springfield toward the brink of destruction. Also, Ned Flanders debuts his new cable access show featuring historic landmarks in Springfield and Homer gets in over his head while hanging wallpaper. (Collects Simpsons Comics #53 & 54)

It’s a super spectacular Bartman doubleheader! First, after a run-in with The Brotherhood of Bullies, Bartman is entrusted with Professor Frink’s newest invention, a cell phone that can give its owner superheroic abilities. In the hands of Bartman’s sidekick, however, the device leads to a series of transformations that turn Houseboy (Milhouse) into a very, very, bad boy! Then while visiting Frink Labs, Bart uses the professor’s newest invention to do the family laundry, and soon the genetic material from the clothing melds with Frink’s concoction to create sentient metal creatures that resemble the Simpsons. It's then up to Bartman, along with the Metal Simpsons to clean-up Homer’s latest mess at the nuclear power plant.

Finally, Bart gets a shot at redemption with the department store Santa.
