Stop! Or My Dog Will Shoot, the 20th episode of season 18 and the 398th overall, was first broadcasted on May 13, 2007 with a script by John Frink and directed by Matthew Faughnan.
When Homer gets lost in a cornfield maze, Santa’s Little Helper rescues him and becomes a local hero, which prompts the Simpson family to enroll him in Police Dog Academy, where he dons a new and more stern personality. However, he becomes jaded when he catches Snake Jailbird, who is released on a technicality, and bites Bart, causing the family to give him away. Meanwhile, Bart, missing Santa’s Little Helper, gets a strangling snake as a new pet.
It’s a Santa’s Little Helper episode, these are always going to be ranging from mediocre to just plain bad and this is yet another mediocre episode……….and that’s it, next episode.
