Trivia

The three things Bart mentions he won't be able to do now that he's stuck in the well is smoke a cigarette, use a fake ID (which he would do in season seven's The Simpsons: Bart on the Road (1996)), and shave a swear word in my hair (which is what Milhouse did during the Squishee bender on The Simpsons: Boy Scoutz 'n the Hood (1993)).

Goofs

When Krusty is in the tunnel hammering in the spike it is barely the size of his hand and is sticking out of the rock unsupported. In the next shot it is much larger and takes several characters to hold it in place. See more »

Quotes

Kent Brockman: [Interviewing Krusty about the ''We're Sending Our Love down the Well" video] Krusty, what are your plans for the royalties?
Krusty the Clown: We got to pay for promotion, shipping, distribution. You know, those limos out back aren't free. Whatever's left, we throw down the well.

Very Amusing Episode!
15 August 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the thirteenth episode of the third season of the Simpsons and once again, it's a brilliant episode. Basically the moral of the story is don't prank people, because it will usually go wrong. And we get to see the hilarious consequences that Bart creates for creating a prank on Springfield. Sting was a good guest star and I loved the parody on turning the charity song, "We Are the World" into "We're Sending Our Love Down Into The Well."

In this episode, "Radio Bart," Bart gets a microphone for his birthday and he decides to use it as a prank. He makes up this guy named Timmy O'Toole and he is trapped down the well which causes Springfield to try and help him. But when Bart accidentally falls down the well, the whole town decides to leave him down there.

Overall, this is an excellent episode, and one that should have won that Emmy award. But nonetheless, it's very entertaining and one of the best episodes this season. Another episode that shows the extent of Marge's and Homer's love for their boy. I rate this episode 9/10.
