Burns' Heir

Season 5


Episode Summary

Hans Moleman is mistakenly deprogrammed to be Bart

Mr Burns realises that he has no child to pass the business onto when he dies, and he's got no one to give his fortune to. In a bid to gain the position of Burns' Heir, nearly every kid in Springfield shows up for an audition where Burns would choose a suitable candidate to give his belongings to in the future. Bart is picked after a powerful performance which took place after the audition, where he showed his true colors smashing things in Burns' yard. Taking Bart under his wing, Burns tried to turn him into one of his own. In fact, he ends up liking him so much that he manages to get Bart to leave his family. But when he has to fire Homer, he doesn't have the heart to do it. And goes back to his home giving up the fortune.


Homer: Kids, you tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson is, never try.
