Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F
This scene was so real to me as a kid because I was struggling with school at the time, too. I think pretty much every kid I knew who saw this episode talked about it at school as being one of the most realistic things they’d seen on tv in a long time. Bart’s always portrayed as a screw up but when he honestly tries his best and can’t succeed it’s just so honestly painful.
Forthwith there was heard a great buzzing in the air, and a swarm of black bees came flying toward her.
"Go to the strangers and sting them to death!" commanded the Witch, and the bees turned and flew rapidly until they came to where Dorothy and her friends were walking.
