Bart’s Casino

When the economy was in crisis, the citizens of Springfield suggest legalizing gambling to provide an economic turnaround. After much debate, Mayor Quimbly agrees, and he and Mr. Burns work together to build the city’s first casino – Burns’ Casino. Everyone in town is happy an excited, and they quickly see an upturn in their local economy. Bart, the town’s most mischievous member of society, walks into Burns’ Casino and drops a quarter into a machine. He wins the jackpot, and once it is discovered he is a minor, he is quickly removed from the building. This upsets Bart, so he sets out on a mission to take revenge on Mr. Burns’ by opening up his own casino, right from his treehouse. He calls it Bart’s Casino and invites all his friends to play. Bart, wanting to really ruin Mr. Burns’ operation, kidnaps Burns’ main act – the infamous American singer, Robert Goulet. Bart tricks Mr. Goulet into believing he is to perform at the correct casino. Mr. Goulet is suspicious, but he performs his act at Bart’s Casino anyway. This tactic, however mischievous, works to Bart’s advantage and turns his casino into a major success.
